Hello, welcome to Matt and Katie's Blog! We originally started this for our friends and families, and to help acclimate to the desert heat. It's taken on a life of its own, and we're now using it to share the best of what we see, point out our mistakes, and, with any luck, help others around us THRIVE. Enjoy!

How Can We Sleep When Our Beds Are Burning...er, Broken?
Remember those movers that I was so pleased with a few weeks back? Consider my endorsement removed. As it turns out, they cut a few corners that didn't manifest themselves until we least expected. Ever wonder what happens when you balance the bed on it supports, instead of screwing them in?
Well, now we know - and know is the half the battle. Unfortunately, the other half of the battle is going to Ace Hardware, buying lumber and heavy-duty brackets, and performing orthopedic surgery on our poor bed.
Fortunately, I have a sterile OR prepped for just these types of jobs. Notice the dining room table that I'm working around. In the end, I was pretty proud of my handiwork.
To all of you moving out there, be warned: if your movers end up with extra parts, get your money back!
