So there go all of our housing projects until this quiets down, unfortunately. I’ve been doing my bits here and there, but I have also been busy with other projects such as interviewing for jobs, oddly enough (please don’t ask) and planning for our small Housewarming/Halloween party over the past weekend.

Happy Halloween, everybody!!!
