I'm stuck with workers at the house today and the internet access has been spotty at best. Not only did we put in new windows last summer, but we're finally getting insulation! W00t! The unfortunate problem is this is the 4th time they've been here - and this time they started at 7:30am. Everything had to get moved to the middle of the rooms, the dogs keep going nuts, the entire house is covered in plaster dust (we have asbestos siding so they had to do it from the inside), and, well, by this point I'm generally cranky.
But while it might be a pain in the butt, at least we won't have $450 gas bills each month. That makes me a lot less cranky - or it will! But if blog content is a little light today, it's because I'm cleaning up plaster dust like crazy. *grins*

Will Obama's increase tempt you into doing something? (Here's some tips on how to winterize your house.)
