July Update

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!
