Well, the wood burning stove is coming along. We have the t.v. in front of it or I would post a picture. Hopefully, it will be finished in the next week. My house is VERY dusty, but I can't wait to have a fire.
We are having a lazy weekend. We went garage saling this morning and then had lunch at the boathouse. It was a pretty day. My friend Lisa and I are training for a halfmarathon and we did a seven mile run tonight. All I can say about this is HOLY COW! I can't believe we ran that far. It was pretty awesome.
In other news, the kids are finally going to sleep in the same room with little trouble. We switched Lillian to the top bunk and Grayson to the bottom. All of the sudden, we could get them to go to sleep in the same room. I am truly stunned at how painless it has been.
I attended a belt buckle party last night with several moms from the kid's school. It was a super fun girl event and I'll be sporting a new belt and buckle, too. Giddy Up! I think it will be fun. I had a buckle that Peter bought me months ago, so I finally have a belt to put it on. I picked up another buckle just for kicks.
We enjoyed all of the debate festivities. It was at Washington University where I got my Master's degreee. So cool and we live so close that we had people parking around our house. Our friends, Jeremy and Rachel, suggested a themed dinner featuring Alaskian fair and Irish to represent Palin and Biden. We had salmon rolls, Irish stew, Irish soda bread, Irish beer and Moose Tracks ice cream. It really made the debate much better. So, it was all very fun and we had some good discussions and a lot of laughs.
So, that is the skinny here.
