Champagne all around!

We are now the proud owners of only one house!!!! Woo Hoo!!! We paid off two loans this afternoon and still have a sizable chunk of change left over. We've got lots and lots of plans but for tonight- we're having some of the last T-bone steaks from our grass fed cow and spiced fried potatoes (fried potatoes with cayenne pepper and onions) and later, we're breaking out a bottle of champagne (not even the cheap stuff!). If you're in the area, stop in! I've been walking around all afternoon with a silly grin on my face which I'm sure will be made much worse by some alcohol.

V did have his appointment with the sinus docs this morning and that was a bit frustrating. We did get to see the CT scan and the inside of his head. They did the fiber optic camera up the nose which was pretty cool to see. Unfortunately, while he does have some cysts in both maxillary sinuses, they are small and don't account for the symptoms he is having. So... he now has an appointment with a neurologist in two weeks and is scheduled for another head CT in May to follow up on the cysts they found to make sure they haven't enlarged. Bottom line- still no answers and he continues to have episodes of blinding pain in the left side of his face and intermittent vision changes in his left eye. We're really hoping that it is just nerve compression caused by the swollen tissue in his sinuses.
In other news, I did start some seeds last night. We don't have the cabinet completed yet but I figured I had a day or two to get the lights set up before they sprout. V and I plan to work on it this weekend.

Now to go fry some potatoes and throw some steaks on the grill! Oh, and I've got to bake a birthday cake.
