Where Art Thou, Beanie?

I don’t even know when the last time I posted was.  I know I can check, but it doesn’t really matter.  It’s been a long time, and for that – I’m sorry.

It’s been crazy for Cody and I.  We finally got possession of our new house – it’s fantastic!  Living with a roommate was… interesting.  Not something married people should generally do, I’m sure.  Definitely not something that I am going to be doing again anytime soon. 

I think the biggest struggle was having to share a kitchen.  We didn’t have the opportunity to cook much while living with our friend.  His girlfriend was over most of the time and instantly claimed the kitchen.  When that wasn’t the issue, there were the excuses of being tired, the issue of our friend having weird working hours and not wanting to disturb him while he was sleeping, or a thousand other “reasons”.  It wasn’t good but I can’t change what happened.  I can only change how we move forward.

I was so excited when we saw our kitchen. It is stunning and I’m not just saying that cause it’s my kitchen.  We have dark brown cabinets with a marbled brown countertop and stainless steel appliances.  It looks like a model kitchen.  We picked the colors and appliances (and by “we”, I mean “I” and Cody just nodded his approval of my choices).  I decided that the first meal I wanted to cook – or the meal I was most looking forward to – was baked chicken, potatoes, and corn.  We didn’t get to have that yet.

Our friends helped us move – so we repaid them in pizza and beer.  Then a heat wave hit, which wouldn’t be a problem… but we don’t have AC.  Our bad eating and fast food addiction continued on….

But the heat wave broke 2 days ago.  And we had central air installed yesterday.  No. More. Excuses!

Onward and upward, my friends.
