Windows 7

Actually we had 8 windows replaced... But my new and early Valentine's Day present runs Windows 7. I know it's a silly reference, but I'm really excited about it. I've had my laptop for almost four years and it's gotten slower and more troublesome over time.

When Tali was here over MLK day weekend, she brought along her new Netbook and Mark and I were all about it! -Let's not fail to mention the hype of the iPad in the last week or two... Anyhow, I convinced myself and Mark that a Netbook would be a win for the both of us and the world... It takes up less space in our house, I would blog more, and we could take it on vacations with us and barely make a dent in our carry on luggage...

So now we've got Windows 7 and Windows 8. Our new windows (the 8 variety) are a dream-come-true! We have been basking in the glory of our new windows for the past week.

Prior to the window overhaul not only did we rely heavily on our central heating, but more importantly, we prayed for outdoor silence, whether it be from our neighbors' playing children or barking dogs... -But this past Sunday, Mark ran inside from walking Lola around 8am, exclaiming, "look out the window!" I quickly did, only to discover about twenty boys between the ages of 9 and 13 gathered in the middle of the street, just yards away from our window. Now unless these children are students of the local mimery, they were likely talking and laughing, exchanges that would have typically led Mark and I to complete and utter insanity on any given Sunday morning... But not last Sunday! Thanks to our friend Mike and our newly installed windows, these paintballin' birthday celebratin' boys didn't as much as jostle us from our peaceful slumber. Amen!

In other news, you may have noticed the new layout. I know, I love it too... Thanks Tali!!! Head over to her blog and check out the completed baby bedding. She did an amazing job!

Feels great to have new windows, isn't it? It looks great with the scenery and it's better insulated, so you can save energy and don't get bothered by the noise outside.
