It’s been a busy last week or so.
Last Friday, Huyen hosted her first mom’s playgroup at our place. Lots of moms and kids converged and there was no baby drool to be found on the carpet by the time I got home. Amazing!
Then, my parents came in town for the weekend and family friends Rex and Kathy joined us on Saturday night as well. As usual, it was great to see everyone and gave me a chance to try out some new recipes on unsuspecting victims.
Dad, in his usual fit of helpfulness, dusted off the tools in our garage and helped finish off some lingering “to do” items around the house. After way too many weeks, my Ikea vinyl storage unit is finally built and anchored to the wall in the studio. I’ll post pictures after I’ve moved my records from the storage boxes into the unit. It’ll be oh-so-exciting, I promise.
And today we had a storm door installed. Getting the door purchased and installation scheduled was a bit of an ordeal, but it’s done and, reportedly, looks good.
Quick site news: the Veg Blog broke when I upgraded Movable Type, so I decided once and for all to ditch MT and move it to WordPress. It’s currently in templated-form, but I’ll be personalizing the layout a bit over the coming weeks. Also, politicalbumpers.org has been secured in preparation for next year’s festivities. All 2004 content has been moved there already.
February’s going to be another crazy month, with a full 31 days’ worth of activity packed into 28 short days.
