Well, we’re having some friends over for dinner tonight. My husband is cooking as we speak. Cooking is one of those things that I see as a means to an end; my husband sees it as an art form. So, needless to say, he does the vast majority of the cooking.
Anyway, our friends are coming over to give me a much-needed html tables tutorial. One of my job duties is designing/building web pages, and tables are a necessary evil.
I never appreciated web design until I started doing it. I’ve basically taught myself everything I know, which isn’t really that much. But, I have done about 50 pages now, so I’m getting practice.
Back to the company again: these friends live in an impressive house in a nice neighborhood. I hope they don’t feel like they’re slumming coming to our apartment. We have Kool-Aid stains all over the carpet, messy handprints on the walls, and bent-up blinds from my curious little ones trying to peek outside.
But, hopefully, there is light at the end of the tunnel – our realtor has found 30 homes in our price range, and she’s bringing the print-outs to me tomorrow. For first-time homeowners on a limited budget, we’re incredibly picky. I don’t know if any of these homes will be up to snuff … we’ll see.
