Update 1: Lighting
Well, after having chronicled the demise of a set of blinds in our bedroom, I set out yesterday to remedy the situation. Let’s just say, that after purchasing 3 sets of blinds (on 3 separate trips, mind you), conversations with 4 Lowes employees, 1 taped up towel as a mock curtain for the night and 30 seconds of actual work to install the right blinds, I was able to replace the window covering. All is well. Moving on.
Update 2: Dang, it’s windy.

Update 3: Real Estate
Shameless appeal to all current residents of NW Austin: can you please sell your house to me?! I don’t ask for much, really. Just find another part of town that you want to live in, and only alert me (or my kick-a$$ real estate agent) that you are planning to move. DO NOT LIST IT ON MLS. Do not tell your friends. Do not tell your neighbors or your family. Just quietly send us a quick note and we’ll come to an agreement. Promise. We can’t have anyone else swooping in to check your house out until after you’ve signed our offer. That’s all I ask.
Update 4: Math
We found out last night that: taco night + toddler - bib = guac and sour cream on most surfaces between the dining room and the bathtub.
