Boo! I remember visiting the Cyclorama on a field trip in grade school. It's not exactly the coolest example of modernist architecture but I'm kind of sad to see it go.

We have what I like to call a "Poor Man's Butler's Pantry" between the kitchen and basement entryway. A narrow space with a countertop, drawers and cabinets...it's become a dumping ground for randomness- things that need to be taken into deep storage in the basement, dirty dish towels and bibs that need to go the laundry, food magazines that I keep thinking I'll cook from, etc...there's so much stuff piled around the floor in the narrow space that it's nearly impossible to open the lower drawers/cabinets.

Ah...finally, the appropriate place for the food processor that has broken a key part. And the grad school text books that are too old to sell but still on my living room shelf--ugly, unread, unnecessary. Yay for the Outbox!

We're in Denver--the most expensive place we've ever lived--and have the prospect of moving again in the next year dependent on the hubby's job. He's an architect...which is tough; there are a limited number of cities where architecture is really progressive, and yet architects are one of the lowest paying jobs relative to the high cultural regard. So we're constantly faced with the challenge of working in progressive cities that we can barely afford to exist in. We rent a great house in town right now, but our kids are sharing a room and space is getting very tight. I shudder at the thought of moving to San Fran, Seattle or Boston and trying to move up to a 3 bedroom. Our egos get in the way, too...there's some incongruity in being a "Sustainable Design Professional" who commutes to work from some ticky-tacky far flung suburb!
