I know it has been awhile, but we are still here. Summer was busy, and now I am finally taking an intensive language course that takes up 20 or more hours per week. Mom and Dad visited, we got serious with the chickens, and we finally got the bathrooms painted. Now we are working on a bit of furniture here and there. We are running out of money at the moment, not in the how-will-we-eat sense, but in the maybe-now-is-not-the-time-for-new-floors-no-matter-how-ugly-the-carpet-is sense. So we are holding off on the floors for a bit and concentrating on painting the rest of the house and getting furniture to make up for our total lack of closets. The former is a bit tricky with a curious toddler poking around and the latter is more difficult than it sounds. Anyway, no pictures today since I dropped the Powerbook and blew the AC converter on the power cable (AND blew a fuse on the house circuit breaker-yay me!) and the pictures live on that computer for now. But do look for the following posts as I have time to put them up: Chickens!, What Lurks (Behind the Wallpaper in the Bathroom), The Jig Is Up, Ich Bin Kein Berliner (Hamburger), and Pictures of the Curly-haired Toddler.
