Masasa: The blogger. Also the reason for the move. Really appreciates art and design, but can't do much of either. Likes things very clean and organized and is too much of a perfectionist to even try to meet her own standards. Not handy. Likes adventure.
Manina: The blogger's wife. Dreads the move. Isn't as focused on art and design, but can do a little of both. Likes things clean but doesn't mind "lived in," and will take whatever she can accomplish. Semi-handy. Wishes things would stay the same more often.
Sweet Boy: Five year old son of blogger and blogger's wife. Dreads the move. Loves art and design, and likes clean houses. A little handy, for a five year old. Wishes things would stay the same as they are now, only cleaner.
Sweet Girl: Four year old daughter of blogger and blogger's wife. Both dreads and looks forward to the move. Could go either way on art and design, and has a tendency toward making chaos. Tries to be handy and sometimes is quite successful. Has a love-hate relationship with adventure.
In case you have been wondering: Masasa and Manina's handles both come from Sweet Boy and Sweet Girl, who made them up.
