Without spending a fortune on home decor, you can really make your house pretty and inviting. Keep your house really clean (I know it' not always what we feel like doing), stay on top of problems that crop up and take care of them. If there's a leak or something breaks or gets chipped, if your carpet has stains or gets frayed, make sure that you stay on top of those problems. Keep the clutter to a minimum and don't fill every nook and cranny with stuff. Your house will be easier to clean and will seem brighter and more spacious.
Great game last night - Syracuse beat Notre Dame.
