Like the prodigal son...

There is much rejoicing (on my part, at least) that my camera battery recharger has been found! Lots of credit to Justin, who told me to look in his orange bag a week or more ago (but I didn't believe that it could have possibly ended up in there).

I also anticipate rejoicing on the part of my many (ha!) readers, as the long dry spell of posts will be coming to an end. In addition to finding the camera cord, we just submitted an order for a laptop!! I will soon be able to write blog posts without feeling like I'm stealing away valuable educational time from the Dr.-to-be.

Now we can all go slaughter the fattened turkey to celebrate! There's lots to be thankful for (even without the new found technology).

I'm not dead...

...but my camera is :( I haven't been able to locate the battery charger since our honeymoon. I'm hoping that it wasn't on the nightstand in the hotel, and there's certainly enough stuff in transition for it to be hiding somewhere in the house!

So between lack of pictures, limited computer access, and lots of visitors and projects, the blog has clearly fallen by the wayside. But I'm ba-aack! (I know, you've heard that before).

In the "big things" department, there is no longer a bed in the kitchen, there is drywall in the extra bedroom, and we have a new furnace (complete with a programmable thermostat that looks like it's capable to communicate with the space station as well as with our heater).

In the "little things that seem like big things to Emily" department, see below:

Excuse the quality of the photos, they're both from my cell phone (given the aforementioned camera issue). Huge thanks to my parents who are responsible for a large portion of the completed work! There are some other big things underway...stay tuned (for a short time, I promise) to see more progress :)
