D and I are working on the house again. This time, we're decorating the front room, which I guess would be called the living and dining rooms. This area, though it takes up about 1/3 of the space in our entire house, is almost never used. I think the reason is that a.) there is no decor in there and b.) there's nothing interesting to do or see in there. Thus far, it's just been an area where we stuff the stuff that doesn't have a place. So we're trying to change that by re-painting and adding new curtains, a bookcase, and a rug. D and I disagree on whether or not to add a TV. I think it would make a nice place where the girls could go to watch something else when the guys are sitting in the living room watching baseball or something. D says that three TVs in one house is excessive. I kindof agree with him, but my solution to that is to take the one out of the bedroom. When we first moved in, I was against having a TV in the bedroom. But we had two TVs, so we had to put the other one somewhere. Now I think trying to take it out would be like trying to ween ourselves off of caffeine - painful.
We've seen some good shows this summer. We saw Pete Yorn last Friday at Center Stage. He was excellent! I need to put him on my ipod. Also, we saw Michael McDonald a few weeks ago, and we're going to see Steely Dan next month. D saw Personal and the Pizzas last night at the Earl. I feel like a bum for not seeing my friends, but I just couldn't make it on a Monday night. I'm old like that. They are so awesome, though!
My sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces are coming to Atlanta this weekend for a mini-vacay. I'm so excited! They're also bringing their 10-week-old puppy, Daisy. We're going to have so much fun. D, C, and I are taking the girls to the water park on Saturday while Oz keeps Daisy occupied. Can't wait!

D and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on Wednesday! We ate here:
It was good, and I had a really good wine: Caparzo Sangiovese. For once I wrote it down for future ordering attempts!
Also, I went for my first run in just about a year yesterday. I am so excited! I only went ONE MILE (and I still had to walk up the hill). I am so out of shape. I don't care, though, because my knees seem to be okay today! I hope this is the beginning of being able to get back into it. Fingers crossed!

Has been sitting in our freezer since Christmas! After five months of trying to fit things into the freezer by balancing them on the hump of a ham lump, we're finally going to have a good use for it. We're heading up to a cabin in Ellijay tomorrow for a weekend of birthday fun with some friends. Should be great. Plus, we're going to watch the Derby and eat some Honey Baked! (Well, everyone except the vegetarians, that is...)

Well, in the knees actually. I have been dealing with pain in both my knees since last summer. Granted, it's not really BAD pain or anything. It's just that it won't go away. I have now been to see my regular doctor, an orthopaedic doctor, a "gait analysis" guy, and two physical therapists. The trouble is that they aren't getting any better. I picked up my new, hand-made orthopaedic inserts on Thursday and today my right knee hurts worse than ever. There's this disturbing popping sound coming from it. I never thought I would miss running and working out so much. I feel like an old woman! If this goes on past my 30th birthday then I'll REALLY be depressed!

Would anyone believe that something this cute could be so naughty? He ATE A SOCK on Friday night and we had to take him to the emergency vet for some emergency vomiting.
I'm happy to report that he is absolutely fine. I am unhappy to report that it cost $170. Bad dog!
