A few more pictures I took while Kwe and I hung out at the house yesterday…
The first of many pictures to come of our first home. We picked up the keys yesterday, and the “big move” will commence next weekend…
The kitchen is one my my favorite parts of the house. I can’t wait to have a place for all our pots, pans, and cookware. I like to cook and it will be great to actually have room to have more than two dishes on the counter at the same time.
*Note the exercise bike in the corner. It was left by the previous owners, and it appears to be in good working order. It will be joining the elliptical down in the basement (aka. the laundry room/gym)
The dining room. This is a first for us. We don’t even have any furniture for this room. Yet.
The upstairs bathroom is the second bathroom in the house. There is also a half bath off the kitchen
One of the two walk in closets in the master bedroom. This is also one of my favorite parts of the house. I love the exposed brick and the fact that RJ and I won’t have to share closet space anymore.
There will be more picture coming later this weekend. I plan to take Kwe over to see the place (well, the yard really) after his appointment at the groomers. We’re having it cleaned Sunday and then the move begins.
Lately, I’ve been pretty quiet about our house hunting just to be on the safe side. Last Friday we signed the papers for our new home on 22 N. Bosart Ave. The current owners are moving out Friday November 13th, so we have some time to start boxing things up and being the ritual of packing. I’m very excited to have a large kitchen, a beautiful yard (I’m already planning what to plant next spring) and my own closet. I’ll be posting pictures after we receive the key next Friday, but for now you can log onto www.zillow.com, type in the address (22 N. Bosart Ave Indianapolis, IN 46201), and look at pictures.
Here are two more videos from our house hunting adventure. These two homes are in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood. The house on 738 Orange Street is at the top of our list right now. The space was just incredible.
Here are two more houses from the Garfield Park area. Great name, eh?
This weekend was marked by a massage party, house hunting, and Harry Potter. The first sounds illicit but it wasn’t. A friend of mine organized brunch a three masseuses to come to her home and offer their services. It was a great way to begin my day.
House hunting was more productive this trip out and RJ took some video on his flip. I will be posting some of the video later tonight when I get home. We saw some great places and I’m feeling optimistic about the entire process.
Harry Potter was fun, as always. I’m glad we did not venture to the midnight showing this time. I like enthusiasm but I also like quiet, dark theaters. Watching the Half Blood Prince did prompt me to go home and pick up The Deathly Hallows which swallowed up most of my Sunday. But hey, it was raining.

“It was, of course, a miserable childhood: The happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.”

As of the end of the 2008 fiscal year, 753 farmers’ markets nationwide had accepted food stamp benefits, a 34 percent increase over the previous year, according to the federal Agriculture Department. Sales to customers using food stamps at the markets totaled $2.7 million in the 2008 fiscal year, the most recent period for which records are available.
Today marks the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong taking those historic first steps on the surface of the moon. On my way to school this morning, I was listening to an interview with Buzz Aldrin on NPR. He was talking about mostly the personal demons he faced after his trip to the moon, and the commentator said something that stuck with me, “So it was easier to map out complex missions into space then to map out one human life?”
I think there could be a poem there…
