Facation!Posted: November 30, 2012
I’m going on a trip next week! But, Hipster Hausfrau, you cry, you’re on bedrest! You can’t go anywhere!
But we’re finally having heat installed in our home next week. Wait, I never told you that we’ve been living on space heaters since our furnace failed to kick on this year? Well, we have. Just an added layer of excitement in the HH household. But don’t worry: space heaters are more effective and less terrifying than when they burned you as a child and/or started a fire in your home (and I’m not kidding, sadly. I know people who suffered each of these horrors).
Our heat is a major project–one we’ve known was coming since we bought the house–because they have to install duct work to the second floor. The previous owners raised four children in a house with no heat on the second floor. Insane-o. But we’re happily converting from oil to gas, adding central air, and getting whole house humidification. Woo hoo! (Wow. If this is what gets me excited these days, I may need to get out more. F-ing bedrest.)
All of this means the HH family will be decamping to Chez Hausfrau, aka the abode of the incomparable La Gigi and El Papa. So I’ll be growing into their lovely couch starting on Sunday and extending through next week. Hooray!
For now, I’m enjoying one of my last nights in my own bed (by which I of course mean my pull out couch), eating a truly divine kale salad and tomato corn casserole provided by Miss Mom (who is not my mom, but ESA’s mom). Deelish! Thank you!
Tomorrow it’s December, and I think we can count that as another milestone. Also, we can count it as the time when I get to start eating my chocolate advent calendar. Thanks, Herr Husband!
Sweet dreams, sweet ballerinas, everyone!
