Hello my friend.

Yes, I missed the internet. I welcome you back my wonderful friend.

A short update in pictures follows.

E and our new puppy, Zoe. Such cuties.

Our bathroom before.
Our bathroom now...well, a couple hours ago. Now it's grouted, too!

Oh, and we discovered a hole in the floor under the particleboard. Yay. Go figure.

So, so far we've done the following:
  • Installed a doggy door, yessss!
  • Put a ceiling fan in our bedroom, oh yeah. I am in love with ceiling fans.
  • Put a new light fixture in one of the guest bedrooms.
  • Cleaned the yard. That was some work.
  • Tiled/Grouted the bathroom counter.
  • Added another sink in previously mentioned bathroom.
  • Fixed light fixture so we can have a vanity light over each sink in said bathroom.
  • Half painted the bathroom (had to wait to fix the wall above the vanity to paint the rest)
  • Ripped up the really moldy particle board by the shower (and found the hole in the floor)
  • Umm...picked out paint colors for the kitchen, which I'm not gonna start working on until the bathroom's done.
  • Oh, and painted the previously ugly bathroom cabinets and put on new hardware.
Yay to fixing a house. I'm hoping we're done with our bathroom renovation by the 20th...can we make it? Seein that we'll be in Minneapolis all weekend, I'm wondering. But I'm hopeful!

Oh, and what am I reading lately? Nothing. ::Tear::

Holy Busy Schedule

So I've been bad. At blogging I mean. It's been really crazy busy lately, but only in a good way.

E and I are now homeowners. We are also proud dog owners (her name's Zoe and she's adorable!). I'm also a new(er) car owner. Um...and we've been moving. And if this counts, half my mouth is now numb from my dentist's appointment.

So, needless to say, I haven't had much time to update. That and the fact that we have no internet at our new house. Next Tuesday - one week from today - we'll be online. I have to travel about 30 minutes to use the internet now, but I'm okay with it, cause we have a house!

I'll be posting pictures soon. Of the dog, the house, and hey...maybe the car.

In the meantime I've read a couple great books: Hunger Games by Susanne Collins (I think) was A-mazing! Then I read The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne Duprau (the fourth book in the City of Ember series). It was good as well, but not as great as Hunger Games. Both books are for young adults, but I think almost anyone would like to read Collin's book. It's great. Besides that I've been reading Harry Potter books again. I don't think I'll ever get tired of them.

Well, I've gotta go register my car, paint some cabinets and the bathroom, and mow the lawn. I'll be better...I swear, once I have the internet.
