Home Sweet Home!

We just bought our first house at the end of March and have been most, if not all, of our free time fixing it up and making it ours! I've really enjoyed not having to worry about neighbors or a landlord. I can paint and hang pictures and not worry about the deposit. The cat has enjoyed this new found freedom as well... barfing many times on our new carpet. See... home ownership, fun for the whole family.
Our last apartment we lived next door to smokers and we could smell the cigarette smoke constantly. Somedays it would get so bad that before I realized that it was our neighbors, I actually thought that the people who lived in our apartment before us had been smokers and that it was coming through the paint or something. It was horrible! I'm very glad to not have to worry about waking the neighbors, bothering the neighbors or smelling the neighbors ever again! Hurray!
Last night I was watching the news and saw this story about a Colorado couple that is NOT ALLOWED to smoke in their town home any more because the neighbors could smell it. As silly as it may sound I can completely understand and respect the judges ruling!
