This is a quick and dirty post, because I realize that it's been over a month since I last updated the blog. The main reason for lack of updates is that I've been having trouble reconciling my laptop with the internet. They aren't speaking to each other at the moment, but I'm hoping it's one of those playground "you're not my friend anymore, until tomorrow," things.

It seems to me that the fun thing about a publishing a remodeling blog, is showing pictures of the remodeling? Right? Well no laptop means no pictures. We are moved out of the house, and staying with a friend for a few weeks before we move into Eli's Mom's house (she has moved north for a great new job and the natural wonderfulness of it all and her house is standing empty). This friend is a computer geek of the highest order and his system is made up of left over server parts from his internet company. It is impressive in it's density of blinking lights and it's tendency to make odd cheeps and beeps...but it contains nothing so prosaic as a USB port. So I have internet, and I have pictures, but I can not have both.

The big news is that we are out of the house, and the second big news is that the house is being reduced to a pile of drywall and paneling scraps. I bought a fancy new respirator at the Home Despot, which not only protects me from breathing 100 years worth of dust and mouse droppings, but gives me a certain apocalyptic chic.

Next post hopefully with lots and lots of pictures....hopefully.
