This is one:
This is the Nintendo Wii, and it has me in its evil grasp. I am totally addicted to Zelda. The Wii sits... in the entertainment center... calling my name. I am powerless to resist its siren~song.
Okay, that's a lame excuse... I'll give you that. The real reason I haven't been knitting much is that I've been exhausted by the end of most days. We've had a bit of a home improvement project. Long days of physical labor, added to the stress of living in a house that looks like a bomb went off in it have left a completely exhausted me at the end of each day.
So, you wanna see what I'm blabbing about? Okay... here it is.
This is what we started with:
This is a floating floor. It's manufactured flooring... we considered real hardwood, but decided that with LilMan and two insane dogs, it wouldn't survive. This is the stuff that the salesman runs his keys across and sets on fire when he's selling it to you.
It has made a HUGE difference in our house. We put the new floor in the hallway, living room and dining room. It has completely opened the house up; it feels bigger.
But, of course, it was difficult for a few weeks to go through the daily routine with the entire first floor of our house in chaos. I'm happy to report that order has been restored. And I love it!
I just have one more bit of news to report today.
LilMan started T-Ball this morning! We signed him up for the instructional class before having him try the League. This is his first organized-sport experience, so we weren't sure how he'd do. I'm happy to report that he had a blast. He did a pretty good job of listening and paying attention to "Coach Alex," and got to practice his throwing, grounding and hitting off a Tee (which he had never done before). He loved it and can't wait to go back again next week!
Well, thanks for stopping by the new blog. I feel completely inept at using the features on it, but at least this one works consistently. The Blog-Sucky-City site was not working again today. I'm going to play work on making this blog everything I want it to be so I can DUMP Blog-Sucky-City.
Does anybody know how to get gutters on this thing? Personalize my colors so I don't have to use a template? Post my own banner at the top? Ugh... so many new things to learn...I'm sure I'll be wrestling with this for weeks to come.
