Yesterday, I mailed the payoff check for our mortgage.  This is very exciting for us.  To be completely debt free (even of 'good' debt) and really truly own our house.  Sure, it helps to have a house that didn't cost very much to start with.  But we have been paying extra every month, and now there's enough in savings to pay off the balance.  Ten years and thousands of interest dollars early, yay!

We had a big bash, hosted by the Moores.  I invited all our Pittsburgh friends that I had valid email addresses for. (So if you missed it and are disappointed, send me your correct email address!) Total attendees: 45 (including babies.) (More)

I lost my planner just before Christmas (as far as I can deduce, in a shopping cart in the parking lot of Jo-Ann's on McKnight Rd - anybody seen it?  Please return it, you can keep the gift cards, I just want the information!)  It had several notes in it about cute things the boys did or said, and I'm sure many are lost, but I do remember a few.  Plus I did write down other things that have happened since. (More)

At the Shursave today, our favorite cashier, Robert, did a double take when he scanned the package of cheesecloth.

There is a lot of traffic, probably an accident ahead, so we decided to stop for a while, so it probably won't all that much difference.

We borrowed a cell phone and bluetooth adapter from work, so I have internet here.  I was hoping to find a traffic advisory to tell us how far away the accident is, but haven't found anything yet.  The traffic continues to trickle by, so I guess we should get going again.

Somehow the appliance spies informed our dryer that we were at Sears looking at a new dryer.  Heather wanted to get a new one, since this one doesn't have a low heat setting - but the dryer has worked fine for years. The next time we used our dryer, it refused to start a couple times, and then grudgingly gave in, but made more noise than it used to.  Jonathan and I took it apart on Saturday, cleaned out old gunk, oiled the bearings, put it back together, and it still sounded the same.  It just stopped working tonight.  I think it overheard the Sears salesperson call today to say that the dryer is ready for pickup.  The Calvettis are loaning us their mini-van on Sunday in order to bring it home.

Ah, it has been nearly a month since I posted anything. So here's a quick rundown. The boys and I went on vacation without Daddy. We drove to Philly, taking 7 hours, stopping every hour, once on the side of the road, once at a rest stop and three times at exits. If ever you need to stop on the turnpike, try really hard to make it a rest stop. You have never seen such long exit ramps as when you have a toddler in the car who needs to go to the bathroom. (More)

On Sunday, I went to a baby shower and Jon and Jonathan went out to lunch with our pastoral intern. Then they took me home so I could get a nap, and headed out to the annual Texas Independence Day party at the Regans'. (TID is really in March, but the party was delayed.) (More)
