Trying to keep up with a bunch of blogs and website can be a real hassle. Especially if there are important ones you really want to read (like family blogs) and can’t always remember the website.

The Garden

We finished off our garden today. It was pretty exciting. We put in a bunch of plants and finished off a few little things we were waiting to do, like repaint the fence.

Early morning vacuuming.

So I decided to get up early today and vacuum. It’s 7:15 and I’m 1/3 done vacuuming the downstairs. Actually, I’m not the one vacuuming – my new iRobot is. It’s simply amazing. This dinner plate sized robot turns itself on and will roll around downstairs vacuuming the house. Once it finishes, it will return … Continue reading
