What do I want for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, April Fool's Day, Mother's Day, whatever???

The new iphone for Verizon.

I have waited so very long. 

Almost all the people I talk to use Verizon, so I couldn't get an iphone before because we'd all have to pay for our calls to one another. Also, I hear that the "other" network's service is very spotty. I've had a Macbook Pro laptop for a few years now (and love it), but getting it to sync up with my current phone has been a bear. The iphone should solve that.  An added bonus is that I won't have to carry around a phone AND an ipod.

Are any of you planning to get the new iphone? It's available February 10, but I probably won't get one until later in the spring as all available funds are being funneled into the house project right now. Let me know if you get one. I'd love to hear what you think of it.

House Update

It seems funny to call this post "House Update" when there is no house yet. However, progress is being made. We now have electricity on the property and a well! A few weeks ago, most of the pine trees were cut and hauled away. Next, the stumps were dug up and removed from the house site, driveway and the immediate areas around the house site and driveway. Then, the area was smoothed out. Here's a picture of what it looked like afterwards.

The footings have been poured for the foundation, and the blockwork is supposed to begin today.

I've been told that the framing of the first floor will be finished in time for me to order cabinets by January 25. Things should start rolling along much faster after that. The one thing I'm trying not to think about is the actual move across town. Hopefully, though, we'll have some time to move things like clothes and kitchen items during the span of several days instead of having to box everything up again. I do know that no matter when we move, I am going to be very thankful to finally be in a more permanent situation.
