I figured since I didn't have a lot of blogging time I could at least post a photo of my kitty cat. This one was taken shortly after we moved into the apartment here. Can you believe that we're coming up on almost 18 months here? Wow.
Giving up our big house in Texas was difficult, but we have found ways to improvise... and have gotten creative with our (lack of) space. The maps you see in the background are ones that would have gone in my school room at my old house. Here, our bedroom doubles as:
* the "office"
(Mom & Dad's make-shift desks are set up in one part of the room)
* the "computer room"
(for typing lessons, research, online games, etc.)
* the "geography center"
(where we do current events online and look up places as we read on the King Size bed)
It has been really nice to have the maps "living with us" in this way (even though it surely wouldn't get us on the cover of a home-improvement magazine). You can't tell that I love decorating and design from the way my "house" looks right now... but at least my cat is posh!
