Prompt 15: 5 Minutes

Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes.  Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.

Looking at houses.  Our feet freezing in the first one we looked at because the heat was turned off.  How huge the third house we looked at was and thinking about using all of that space.  Hanging out with Blaine.  Going in through the back door that happened to be open of the house we actually bought because Blaine could never get his key to work in the lockbox.  Sitting on the barstools in the kitchen talking about this house.  Moving in.  Feeling comfortable being in the house by myself, even when Andrew spent the weekend in Chicago.  Planting bushes and bulbs in the front yard.  Picking spots for trees in the back.  Learning to mow the lawn.  Deciding to actually look at puppies.  Driving to Muncie to look at the litter of puppies.  Schmoo coming up to us whenever we made eye contact with him.  Bringing him home in the car and how tiny he was.  Watching him clumsily climb up and down the stairs.  His first bath and then him peeing in the middle of our bed afterwards.  His first time in the snow and how he eats it.  Our housewarming party and how fun it was to have people over.
