Mommy Needs a New Pair of Shoes

Okay, so we have been living on a budget while M attends grad school. The big problem with our budget? Um, we have a house. A four bedroom house. With a full basement. Suitable for multiple children and family celebrations and a lifetime of love and happiness.

We're on the lean end of that lifetime. I *know* that we got a good deal on our house, and that we are going to be able to do everything we want to this house over the years. It's going to metamorphosize (how do you spell that?) into our dream house year by year.

The dream this year? Involved a bow window, a furnace, and ripping out our bathroom. (Not installing. Just ripping.) A furnace is a very unsatisfactory home purchase. It's all energy efficient! Whoo! But seriously, do you show off your new furnace? I have. It's not satisfying. It doesn't make people go 'Ooh!' and you don't get a comforting feeling of home when you look at it.

The bow window I do love. Unfortunately, it made me want to change everything else in the room. Including the room's function, the walls, the ceiling, and the fireplace. Which would involved chiseling out bricks. Um, yeah. Brick chiseling. Sounds fun!

It's so frustRAAAAting to not be able to do it all... now.
