The Pride Of Ownership*
So owning the house is pretty cool and all. Especially since we haven't had to make a mortgage payment yet, since the big bleed at closing. Our winter break was spent moving furniture around and discussing how and where to best display our book collections (which have been--eek--integrated). I sat quietly with my breakfast (at normal hours, in the daylight) and watched the birds in our yard. We reveled in giving people 'the tour' as they dropped in to visit. We even braved the cold one night and walked the couple blocks to Main Street to eat at the new Pakistani restaurant in town. But perhaps the most exciting moment for me came today, when I got my new car insurance cards in the mail, and discovered that I now get a freaking "Homeowner's Discount!" Heck yes.*this one's for you, TenS.
