As of July 1st, J and I are proud owners of a 100 year old house on a small piece of land in Melrose, MA. Yes, we are officially members of the middle class. As countless people have said to me over the past 2 days, there's nothing like it. It's the damn truth.
We've got a looooooooong road before we can settle in and call it a home. Lots of work to be done this weekend before the big move on Friday, 7/9. But the end of the road is in sight, and Booch blessed our choice today by taking his first of what promise to be many, many backyard pinchings.
"All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire"
