Today we write about: big news.
The north and south sides of the house are ready to be painted tomorrow, so here's hoping we actually manage to get a first coat on both.
Before I was out of bed for more than fifteen minutes, Kat and I received two pieces of big news this morning. The first came courtesy of her brother: as of 2:30 in the morning, we're now aunt and uncle to little baby Natalie. Mom and daughter are doing well, and we can't wait to meet her at Thanksgiving.
The other slice of news was of the less happy variety: most of Kat's high school in Oliver burned to the ground overnight. Obviously it's too soon for any decisions to be made about where all those kids will be going for classes, but it's going to be quite the ordeal, both emotionally and bureaucratically. I'm not sure how I'd respond to hearing my old school was essentially no more, but it's not hard to imagine how upsetting it would be - especially for current students.
Hopefully tomorrow proves to be a little less eventful.
