It’s been a few months since our last post. We had an almost month long visit back to Minnesota where we got to see lots of family and friends. Boy was it great to be back in the land of 10,000 lakes! However, after 3.5 weeks of being on the road with a baby and a dog, we were ready to come home. It’s weird to think of here as home, but here we are!

Ally is 10 months old and crawling around and getting into all kinds of things. She hasn’t quite figured out how to open things, but she finds the TINIEST little bits in the carpet and then eats them. So it’s great incentive to vacuum regularly. **Sigh**

Maggie just went through her own trial. I think I’ll make that a second post soon. Poor little puppy dog. She’s OK now though, all safe and sound!

We are knee deep into our table building project. Yes, Nick and I decided to build a table. Nick actually is doing the building and sanding and then I’ll do the painting and staining. So far, it looks WONDERFUL. All for $150. The DIY posts of “build a table for under $50” are lies. But, $150 is definitely better than the $1,000 price tag that was on the table I had my eye on.

Nick will probably want to build all kinds of things, so watch out world, here he comes with his Kreg jig in tow!

I’m still organizing, cleaning, re-organizing, re-cleaning and trying to get us truly settled. It’s difficult because every time I clear an area, it seems that another project just pops up. So far, we’ve build a fence, re-insulated the attic and crawlspace, had a window replaced and we’ve owned this house for 5 months. Yuck. Hopefully the projects will be done soon!
