Just the Highlights

I lost internet access for about 24 hours, starting yesterday afternoon, and it's thrown me off my stride.

~~~

Speaking of strides, this morning I participated in the 20th annual MS Walk in Narragansett, RI.  A 6.2 mile walk.  The weather was gorgeous.  I've got 3 friends who have MS.  I walked with one of them, and parts of her huge family, friends, my sister – and that was just our team.  Lots of people were out, either walking or biking it.  Good day.

Still have a ton of pictures from yesterday's Opening Day of T-Ball to post.  I'll get there.

Our nephew, Ray, will be running in the Boston Marathon on Monday.  He and The Girl are staying with us this weekend.  Last night there were 8 of us for dinner – me, Bill and the kids, Ray and The Girl, and Joe and Emily.  Bill cooked ribs.  'Nuff said.

Joe is helping us split one bedroom (Bill's & mine) into two smaller rooms, which will become the kids' bedrooms, and Bill and I will move into the one they currently share.  He (Joe) and Bill put up the framing for the dividing wall this morning while I was on the MS Walk.  There's some business going on with electrical wires now.  Lots of running up and down the stairs.  Possible drilling through the floors may be involved.  Our room is sawdusty.  Next weekend will be the MAIN weekend of this project.  I'll be glad when it's done.  The kids are excited, and seem to have actually reached an amicable decision regarding who will get which of the two new rooms.  No fights.  I recognize that this is a miracle, and I am thankful for it.  I am also incredibly thankful to  Joe for helping us out with this project.

I think Julia has eaten 4 popsicles in the past 3 hours.  It's that kind of a day.

That's it for the moment.  Time to check the seedlings and water any that have dried out.

Normal (or close to it) posting should resume tomorrow.
