Long Time, No Post

Yep it has been a while since I posted. Let me sum up:
September I did the MS 150. I did 75 miles the first day and around 30 the second day. I now refer to it as the MS 105. While I didn't get all 150 miles done, I did raise $742.56, which I am pretty happy about.

Also in September, I went to Minnesota. I spent time in the North Shore area, which was beautiful. Also went to Minneapolis for a bit while my husband attended the national Holy Name Society convention.

After getting back to St. Louis, we spent the last week of September/first week of October getting our house ready to have the carpet throughout the entire first floor replaced with laminate flooring. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the week of October 6 were installation days. The rest of the week was spent cleaning and putting the house back together.

The week of the 13th, we had some exterior painting done. I also spent some time enlarging some of the photos I took in Minnesota and we hung them throughout the house -- they look pretty good.

The next major project is going to occur within a few weeks -- we are getting our patio extended in the back yard. We'll be extending it to the entire width of the house and about 30 feet deep. Looking forward to being able to hang out more in the back yard after we get that done.

Other than that, Gus the cat is still looking for a home.

I'll try to keep you up to date more often!
