I was surprised, after gagging on almost anything with texture, Henry actually likes Cheerios. Loves them, in fact.

Space Shuttle Launch March 15, 2009

I know I should be blogging about something substantial like our cross country train trip, visiting with Kyle, my birthday at Epcot…

Instead I want to share these photos. About 45 minutes ago the Space Shuttle Discovery launched from Cape Canaveral. Justin and I watched the launch from our driveway. Even though we’re about an hour away from Kennedy Space Center we had a clear view of the launch.
I can’t describe how amazing it is to watch a live shuttle launch. It’s inspiring and beautiful and your heart kind of skips a beat as it’s happening.
So we watched the huge fireball zoom through the sky until the shuttle was nothing but a bright white dot up in outer space.

So, we bought a house February 26, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — H. M. @ 10:31 pm

Things have been unbelievably insane this month. We ended up buying a house, a cute three bedroom-two bath house with a GINORMOUS kitchen.o4892324_101_12

We’ve already fixed some plumbing issues even though we don’t close until March 23. It was a bank owned property which meant we had to move mountains to get the paperwork done. As soon as we close the upgrades shall begin–drywall patches, fresh paint in each room, laminate in the kitchen and foyer, new carpet throughout, new doorknobs, new garage door and fire ant poison in the yard. Eventually we’d like to redo the stucco, paint the exterior, put a fence around the yard, redo the bathrooms, stuff like that.

In a few days we’ll be hitching a ride on the Empire Builder. It’s a train that starts in Chicago and runs parallel to the Canadian border till it turns south at Spokane and ends in Portland. I’ll get to see the only states I haven’t been to so I’m pretty psyched.

Hammy says he’s psyched, too!
