Shower and Shopping

Last weekend I had the privilidge of going to Indianapolis, with Colleen, to our friend Gail's Baby shower. We had a great time and were glad to help welcome an extended member of the Wood Family.

We stayed with Erika and Shane and got to have Monical's Pizza!!! They have recently branched out into the Indianapolis market. Oh, how I missed it so!! I meant to get some dressing to take home, but forgot. We had breakfast with Sarah W. and Charlotte and it was nice to see them. I do believe that Charlotte is taller then Alex, despite being a bit younger. We watched the Colts' game with Nick, Beth, and Jillian. Not a football fan, but good to hangout with friends.

Sunday, we hit the outlet mall in Edinburgh with Scottie. I broke down and bought some new shoes from Bass, (my students would have been proud of me...they were heels!). We all found lots of good stuff to bring home, although some brought home a nasty case of food poisoning.

It's all kind of foggy... REALLY foggy. We have been dealing with fog since last Friday. We even had freezing fog at one point. It has been rainy, foggy, and just yucky here the last week and looks like it will continue into the weekend. It is supposed to be in the 50s on Saturday! YUCK!! I don't mind warmer weather, just not in January. It has been quiet here this week. I had a migraine on Monday, thanks to the fog and increased humidity. I did get a new video game. My copy of Wii Fit died, so Eric bought me the newer version. I am in LOVE with the new games on it!! I've had Wii fit for almost 11 months and I quite enjoy it. It is a nice compliment to my usual Curves workout. Highly recommend it to those thinking of purchasing it.

Eric is bringing home a Papa Murphy's Pizza tonight...we shall see how it is.

Stairy Stairy Night

stain your palette oak and lacquer

Okay, enough with the bad puns, and my apologies to Don McLean

Stairs are 95% finished and usable!! They need to be vacuumed and polished, but that will be done tomorrow. Here is a visual timeline of the stair remodel. It started in October of 08 and just finished January of 2010. It took so long because the money we had set aside for the project had to go towards a new car down payment in December of 08. They started with awful grey carpet and ended with beautiful oak. I cannot begin to convey the improvement hardwood stairs are, over the carpet and broken stairs there previously.

It really DID snow...

well whadaja know, it did snow. Not a bunch, just a few inches, but enough to mess things up. Now we are having the coldest temps in over 10 years and lots of wind. Today is the coldest day in 10 years and the furnace goes out. Eric is at home waiting for the repair man, and Alex and I are at folks trying to stay warm. Hopefully it will be a quick, inexpensive fix.

Snow (supposedly)

Supposedly we are getting lots of snow far here, nothing, so we shall see...

We survived the holidays. Now gearing up for two small trips later this month. Gail Baker Zwaska's Baby Shower in Indy and taking my Dad to the Oral Surgeon in Danville. I don't even want to think about how many miles that will put on my Saturn :) Other then that, the only other thing we have going is the stair project. Will have to make a seperate post just for that...they are now ready to be installed!!!

Alex and Stache(short for Mustache) running up and down the hall together. Both are upset all the doors were closed.
