I realized I posted this on my other blogs, but not here. We bought a 100 year old farmhouse (with over two acres of prime fenceable land!) back in December, and are slowly diy converting it to a habitable residence. Slow, diy house renovation doesn't leave much time for daydreaming about future dogs, so this blog is in a bit of a holding pattern until we actually live in our house, as opposed to just work there. I do still get notifications of comments, so if you got here from a comment I made somewhere, I'll still see your response.
If you're insatiably curious about how we're coming (hint: we thought we'd be moved in by February) you could check at my house blog, which I'm doing my darndest to update when I can.
