Random News

In just a little bit, we are leaving to go to the airport to pick up C and then to the flooring store to hopefully pick out some oak for my dining room to match the rest of the house. I was going to just paint the subfloor under the carpet and wait on doing the hardwood, but then I realized that I would have to put my dining room back together only to have to tear it back down again sometime in the future. I have no interest in moving all those books again! So, we decided to just bite the bullet and get the oak. The place I am going has unfinished wood, so we can do the same linseed oil finish as the rest of the house, which I love. And the price is right! Here's to getting one room of the house 100% done! Yay! I'll show you what it looks like when we get it all done.

In other news, A has started a new ballet class, which I believe is going to be great. E spent the entire class time dancing in the waiting area and got lots of comments from the other parents about why she wasn't in the class. Sooooo, we signed her up, too! She told me she wanted to have A take the class and tell her if it was any good, before she would know if she wanted to do it. Little stinker, using her sister as a guinea pig! I am much happier with this place, over the last one. It is so much more about the enjoyment of dance, rather then performance and competition. That, and the parents were much cooler to hang out with! This seems to be the school that the hippies in Ithaca go to. My kind of folks!

So, I am going to be quiet here on the blog for a few days while C is home. Or maybe I won't! See you soon.

Oh, linseed oiled floors sounds divine! I've used a lot of the local Tried and True brand on furniture, but haven't had the opportunity to put it on floors. I really love how it smells and of course non-toxic.

Enjoy your time with C.
