Remodeling

There’s so much going on in my house right now that I almost forgot about the Move 2008 update. We’re having new windows installed in what will be our library/guest room and a patio door installed in the dining room.

It sure is noisy work.

We had a lovely weekend with our sons, their significant others, and our granddaughter. On Saturday we took Emma and her parents to the playground for a little while and Emma got to play in the puddles. It rained off and on for most of the day so we were lucky to find a space of time when it wasn’t raining.

(Princess Emma playing in the puddles.)

M the Younger graduated from college (finally!) and we had a celebration brunch for him on Sunday at Piatto Novo. The food was yummy, and I’ve decided that M the Elder and I should make a monthly habit of having Sunday brunch there.

M the Younger and his fiance are in Colorado this week looking at apartments and job hunting. They decided this is their big chance to get out of the Bogs (that if they don’t do it now, they’ll probably end up here forever). I just spoke with M the Younger on the phone a little while ago and he sounded like he’s enjoying the trip now that they’ve made it to Colorado. They had car trouble in Kansas that resulted in them leaving his car in Kansas to be repaired and renting a car to continue their trip. I can’t help but think they’re better off in the rental.

Time for that Move 2008 Week 20 update:

  • Walking mileage for this week: 21.22 miles
  • Total for 2008: 424.67
  • Strength training: x 2
  • Yoga: x 5

Not a bad week, all in all.

I’m off to a slow start this week. I hope to pick up the pace as soon as the window and door project is finished.
