Curtains, Doors and Forts

Today, while we've been working, our contractor has been putting new doors in our house!  I am very excited about it.  Elinore though, I don't think she's going to be excited about it.

You see, as of last night, we had an 8' foot wide, old, inefficient, hard to open, often frozen shut sliding glass door with plain, boring brown drapes covering it.  The drapes helped slightly to keep the cool air out of our family room, when they weren't frozen to the door anyway.  Elinore loved to play in the drapes.  The were big and flowing.  When someone would to go close them, she would run to stand in front of it, so they would have to close around her. 

Other times, she's go sit behind them and play.  Keith said yesterday after school, she and Caden built a fort between the curtain and the window and were playing in it together. 

Our new doo, which I haven't seen yet, is only 6' wide, and is supposed to have blinds between the panes of glass.  So one, I can't wait to get home from work to see how it looks, and two, no more drapes!
