Settling in
The contractors came again this morning, and it sounds like things will start getting torn up next week. They seem to think it'll be fast. Whew. Of course, that'll be when tirinian's mom is here; when you have house guests isn't the ideal time to remove the bathroom, but I'm sure it will be an adventure.

It's not quite home yet, but it's close. The third floor doesn't really exist yet (we probably aren't going to bother unpacking until the work there is done), and the living room has the piano and desk but otherwise none of the right furniture. But the kitchen is a real kitchen now, and the computer room is a computer room, complete with newly installed three-prong outlets, thanks to mjperson (no sofa yet, so we can't all hang out there yet). And the guest room / library is definitely a library, if not yet a guest room.

It's like being back in Virgina (well, not that Virginia is there any more) - familiar but not home. Space that I recognize but don't fit perfectly in.

Give it another week, and I'll be used to it. It took me months to be used to being married. :)

not that you wanted to know this

My ISP needs better spam filters. How do I know this? Because apparently, these days, when I see the word "Virginia" on a computer screen, my brain promptly recognizes it as a misspelling of "viagra".

Where's Virginia?

Wait, Virginia isn't there anymore? Did I miss something?

Re: Where's Virginia?

As part of the upcoming electoral college reform, several states have been cancelled. Virginia and Kansas have been redistributed; North and South Dakota were merged.

Of course, this won't take effect until after the election, so that's why you don't hear so much about it.
