New Year

Where to start? New Years Eve morning arrived with a water feature in our basement. So now imagine the next 5 days with turbo fans running. I never really noticed how loud they were until I turned one off then it was like torture to turn it back on. So long story short we need to replace half of our kitchen floor and refinish the floors in the rest of the house. The hardwood is continuous throughout the upstairs and it wouldn't be possible to only do part. So now we are trying to find a floor specialist or company or something.

I really shouldn't complain I don't have 72 inches of snow.

I am discovering that the "terrible twos" were nothing compared to the Terrific Threes. Maddy has been expressing her opinions and thoughts with vigor lately. Right now our battles are over getting dressed and combing her hair and how many times a day she watches Toy Story.

I really shouldn't complain I don't have 72 inches of snow.

I have also decided to try the South Beach Diet. Although I don't like the word diet so I am calling it a new way of eating. I started on Monday and I have lost 5 pounds already and I don't really feel like I am missing anything. We had some of the Wamu gang over last night and I bought a cheesecake for dessert. I had about 6 bites and I was done.

Here are a few pics for those of you who don't like to read and only want to look at pictures. :o)

Oh no! That's terrible! Did it flood, or water heater burst? Yuck! I hope you can get it all fixed up soon! And yes, 3 is FAR worse than 2, hands down!!!

Uh, I thought it was the Robertson's job to host winter holiday flooding. What happened???? Sounds miserable. At least you don't have 72 inches of snow... :-) Nice job on the 5 lbs!
