Three years ago, when we first moved in (2003):
Two years ago, when we were just beginning construction (2004):
Last year, when the inside still wasn't finished (2005):
This morning, as we await our newest addition (2006):
We've come a long, long way together...

So we've been doing a looooot of unpacking lately. Hence the lack of posts, because really, how interesting would that be? "Unpacked 5 more boxes yesterday...yup." But we can see progress being made slowly every day, and that's a wonderful feeling.
Just don't ask to see how many boxes labeled "Electronics" are stacked in our office closet — though technically, that counts as unpacked. The more I tell myself that, the more I believe it.
It's amazing how many boxes of computer books and accessories you can unpack onto wonderful, adjustable homemade bookshelves:
Ryan made these when were living in the condo, where our office was also red and our desks were similarly pushed together along one wall. Only now, they're under a big double window. It's so nice sitting at our desks with sunlight streaming in while looking out over the backyard...
...when the shades are up, of course.
At night, we miss the track lighting over our desks like Ryan installed in the condo, but I don't think running more wiring is something we'll be in the mood to do again until, um, never.
Flashback to two years ago:
P.S. We're looking for a pull-out sofa for this room, preferably no wider than 60". If anyone is looking to get rid of one, just let us know — have trailer, will travel.
