Yesterday I (Marianne) felt very motivated to do a little spring cleaning. I took the curtains off all of our windows and let some light in! It was great. I also cleaned out all the bugs and grossness of the windows. It's nice to actually be able to see outside from down here in the basement. I'm certainly not in a position to complain about our current living situation, but at an uncertain future time, I am definitely looking forward to being on ground level and being able to enjoy the outside sunshine.
