A Blast from the Past

Lots going on in these parts. Obviously the house reno takes up loads of our time. We're slowly going room by room, but it's finally starting to come together. The house wasn't in disrepair by any means, but definitely had a strong 70s vibe and way too much nasty, old carpet for our taste. The upstairs is done and we finally made out way downstiars. If you're interested in seeing some of our improvements, I created a collection in my flickr account.

The other big time sucker is that I'm running the NYC Marathon again!! This year, I'm running with a charity group that supports research for Crohn's disease (among others), a condition my husband suffers from. It will be nice to run with a greater purpose in mind this year. I'm training with a group this year, which I think will be immensely helpful (and I'll get to meet new people). And I won't have to run any 20 milers alone. I enjoy my alone time as much as anyone, but I think I'll appreciate …

Finished Cirque Socks!

Yikes, I knew it's been awhile, but I didn't realize it's been this long! Moving will do that to you, I guess. I'm in awe of all you bloggers who find time to keep up with the blogging schedule during big life events.
We're all moved in finally! It's truly amazing how much time, energy (and money - I should just hand my paychecks directly to the bank and Home Depot). We're still painting and updating, but the house is beginning to feel more and more like home. I'm sure it will feel even more homey when we have furniture! Sleeping on the floor is getting old, especially when you're sleeping face to face with a black lab with dog breath. Oh, and guess what? We have two (two!) peony bushes (plants?)! I'm working on a before / after slideshow thingy in flickr for all you hgtv-types.
anyway, knitting! I finished these socks a good while ago, but have been behind on posting.
