A Home for the Holiday

To paraphrase Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young...
Our house / Is a very very very fine house / With three trees in the yard / Life used to be so hard / Now everything is easy / 'Cause of you...

As I frequently do, I've let a lot of time slip by since my last post. But this time, I've actually got a pretty good excuse. On November 20, after much (I suppose typical) scrambling and bargaining and inspecting and worrying, we became homeowners. For this Thanksgiving, we have a place we can truly call our own. Now that is something to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody (those of you who are in the U.S. and celebrating it, that is). I'll try to get a couple of long delayed posts out before the month ends next week. In the meantime, enjoy your meal, and count your blessings. We look forward to doing both.

Congratulations! And save some of those congratulations for when you've finished unpacking all the boxes.

Congratulations Foxes! Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. What a wonderful time of year to acquire home ownership and permanence (or the illusion thereof)

Looks like Santa came a bit early this year. ;-)

There's something almost sacred in the right to not blog about what you don't want to blog about; and I certainly hate to put you in a box as a "mormon blogger" and if I am doing so, I apologize. But I for one would really like to hear you weigh in on the Great Underwear Debate that was sparked by Andrew Sullivan (the blog "By Common Consent" has had some interesting threads on it). So I thought I'd just mention that I was curious about what your take on it was.

I hope you had a good holiday.
