It's a thing!

But most people just call it "oxygen deprivation." I used to like to go up to the restaurant at the summit of Pike's Peak and watch the tourists pass out in their soup.
It always amuses me to go skiing and watch my dad spend 2 or 3 days gasping for air and buying the oxygen cans.

Holy shit. I got the email today. Guys... At 37 years old with a large family, I'm doing probably one of the scariest things I've ever done. I'm taking a year off work to go to college full time living solely off of savings (actually cashing out my retirement fund). I'm excited, I'm scared, and I hope I can do this. This will bring about a whole new future for me and my family and I'm so excited to see it start! Can't wait till January! I know last year this program had 80 applicants and only 24 got in, so while I've been super excited about the prospect of getting into this program I knew I had a small percentage chance to get in, but here I am, killing it!

Congratulations on signing up for the "Learn to Budget" immersion program!
Also that decision to multi-class is pretty cool, too.

Second bathroom. Yes, tile everywhere, even on the ceiling.

The back yard - I have no houses behind me, I back up right against green space (and mosquitoes).

Apparently, the guy who owned this house previously was, like, THE tile magnate of the Brazos Valley. Big tile store/distributor. Everything in this house is tile. Tile floors, tile baseboards/molding, all-tile surfaces in the kitchen. Breezeway and patio? Tile! Bathrooms? Tile all over. Even tile on the ceiling. Open up the cabinets? Tile. Look under the kitchen sink? TILE. No linoleum or carpet ANYWHERE. ONLY TILE.

And yeah, I don't expect to get much use out of that fireplace.
