Eesh, A Month!

Felix was getting ready to go back inside, hence his elevated state of alertness.
I should really try to be more alert (short of Beth's periodic reminder of how long it's been since my last post) about posting here, but things have been terribly busy, much to the dismay of the flocking audience here.

For starters, today is our 6th anniversary. It doesn't really seem all that possible when I think about it, and I suppose that's a good thing. :) We've not done anything special yet, but it fell on a Sunday and so we'll have to figure something out for later on. Ma and Dad came up for the day, and that was cool.

I've spent the last month or so really working on the basement (mostly on weekends when I have a little more time). As of tonight (or more appropriately Saturday evening), roughly three-quarters of the exterior basement walls have been painted (on the inside). I have a second coat to apply on one section before it's finished (and officially three-quarters complete), but that's just roller work and should go quickly.

My goal is to get the remainder of the exterior basement walls painted (with the exception of the root cellar area) by the end of next weekend. It's a bit of a lofty goal, but I think I could be pretty close to getting that done. The root cellar area is another story (since I need to get the shelves down and possibly remove the doorway), but I need to get those walls done so I can get to the floor treatment and move on with life. :)

Things have been moving along in other ways. I've been keeping busy with a few side projects that have seemingly rotating deadlines or pressure spots. So that's really what's been keeping me busy in the evenings after my daily routine of hanging around with Kirstin and taking pictures.

Another birthday passed since my last post, which was another reason for the long time. Do I feel older? No. That's probably a good thing. :)

I started out writing this (or thinking about it over the last few days) with all sorts of good ideas about stuff to ramble about, but I'm not recalling them off hand, so I'll have to leave this post at that and call it good. For now.

And hopefully not wait another month until the next one. That's just plain pathetic! :)

So until next time...
