Well, it's been a while since I posted but i have had good reason. I think the last month and a half has been just about the busiest 45 days of my life. Home ownership is a lot of work. I don't know if it is possible to realize just how much work it is until you actually own a home.
I will leave the home ownership post for later because yesterday was my anniversary and that's more important. On Aug 16th 2008 i got married, So my wife and I have survived our first year together. I have heard that the first and 7th years are supposed to be the hardest so I am very pleased with this accomplishment.
Since we have had to spend a substantial amount of money in the past few months (buying the house and making renovations), we decided to keep our anniversary gifts to each other fairly simple. What also did was go on a short Mariposa cruise down on the lake front. The served a nice brunch and we cruised the city. It's a nice low cost alternative that I would recommend to anyone. Other than that we just enjoyed the day.
I have a lot to update everyone on but it will have to wait until next week because I am running late for work.
