With each move comes pros and cons, so you learn to count the pros and ignore the cons as best as you can. Despite the cold and snow, the base housing is a lot larger in North Dakota. Therefore, we have acquired a few new "family members" along the way.
My kitchen is much larger. However, I have linoleum...BUT my kitchen is larger. I now have a gas stove as well, so linoleum is a small sacrafice to pay. The Hub has finally put up my pot rack as well and I must say he did an exquisite job.
There was a random room next to my kitchen that was too big to be a closet, not big enough to be a room, so what was the natural choice? The Hub bought me some nice shelving and made a walk in pantry, OF COURSE! I am very thrilled with this and I think my food is happier as well.
In that room is also enough space for my cookbooks. So, they are shelved nicely and happily with my food. I actually have slowed down on my buying...which is good because I don't know if we would have space for another shelf. However, I do have a birthday and have already my eye on a few.
And lastly, this little guy followed us from California. How could I say no? There he was looking at me so I had no choice but to adopt him! I am very happy with him too. He has been a great addition to this family already contributing so much to our family in this negative 15º weather.
