This whole living in the ghetto thing...

So I find myself forgetting sometimes that I live in such a "humble home"... I have some cute pillows, rugs, bedding, etc. so I find myself thinking more and more that this place isn't so bad and try to ignore the nasty nasty carpet or the grossness that has built up over the years under the refrigerator... If you live somewhere for less than a year you are allowed to ignore things like that.
Well anyway, lately the humbleness has been pretty hard to ignore. I'm sick and tired of my toilet breaking. I'M SICK OF IT! I cant live like this... I have a ridiculously small bladder and have also recently become addicted to diet coke. You do the math.
And...my oven. It tends to reach 50 million degrees no matter what temperature i set it to. So, this results in the following. A) burned goodies and B) the fire alarm blaring every single time i open the stinking (Craig vetoed my more dramatic word choice)oven... which i still don't understand because I took the batteries out last time I tried to bake.
Those things in my life are very annoying... but if those are my biggest problems in life then I guess life is pretty great.
I am very excited to go home for Christmas. I am very excited to see my family. and I am very excited to sleep in a comfortable bed and have a working toilet over the holidays.
We wish you all a Happy Holiday Season... PS I have loved every one's Christmas cards thus far. Don't expect a card from us until we have children... I'm not keen on the whole taking pictures thing.

you have a problem with photos. I'm taking my wedding present back and buying you therapy instead. speaking of... have you taken pictures of your ghetto? your kids will enjoy hearing the stories of "the good ole days" a lot more if there are photos of mom baking and the fire alarm going off. please!
We can't wait to see you!

Taylor, I love that you are married to Craig and addicted to Diet Coke. And you can always come use our toilets if you need one that won't break!

You are so cute. You'll look back on the days of fire alarms and poopy toilets with a smile. I was exactly like you. Hated my 2x4 rat hole of an apartment but now I think back and love it! It will help you appreciate your first real place that much more!! Merry Christmas Cannons!

This is really from Mom: " Diet Coke?! Taylor Ainge(do I have to say Cannon?) YOU ARE NOT MY DAUGHTER!"

This is from me:
You shouldn't have a problem with the toilets here, unless you go in the hall. And Cason might wake you up at 6 am yelling, "I'm Done!" So you can tell Craig to bring his wipes.
