Ever since I wrote a nine (9) page persuasive essay for Geoff about why we needed a dog, (and why we'd be really good at being dog parents), we've been trying to pull some strings. As in, Geoff made some calls to the ole landlord, and got rejected. We decided we weren't going to take that, and started eagerly looking for houses of our own.
We found one darling gilbert home, (well, kelli & dan did- thanks!) and put an offer on it almost immediately. we are now anxiously waiting for the bank to call back, but since then we've visited ikea, american home, anthropologie, home depot, and much much more. not to mention the meetings we've had with tile ripper-outers, wood-floor layers, great painters (Lang Painting!), etc.
This is becoming quite the expensive puppy..
