Everyone says that a smaller place is easier to keep clean. Yesterday, while preparing for Brianna's arrival, I vacuumed the whole apartment and the vac stayed plugged into the same outlet the whole time. And no, I didn't use an extension cord. I will post pictures soon so you can see how our whole apartment could easily be dropped into our living room in our house in Dallas.
I am NOT complaining. Not one bit. I like it here. It's a fun adventure. It's certainly sobering to see how much you can live without when you need to. I don't need 4 kinds of cereal and 3 of every kind of pot and pan. I don't need 3 sets of dishes - everyday, fancy, and Christmas. I don't need a month's supply of pasta. I have what I need - Paul, Hannah, and the Tivo. And they all fit nicely in this little place we call home.
