Back Home

What a great weekend with Kristin, Tim & Jaelyn! I got a lot of quality "holding time" in and so did Steve. She is such a sweet baby. When she smiles, it's like a full body smile. We all went out to eat Saturday night & she slept through it like a good girl. That is their first time out to eat as a family. We rented "Up in the Air" with George Clooney after dinner. Have you seen it? What did you think?
I am sitting on the couch with the other baby (no, not Steve) Mia. She has a new pet sitter now. Our neighbor Michelle has her own business and it worked out great. She sits with her for a 1/2 hour or more twice a day so Mia has company. Nice!
We are now getting out the calendar to see when we will have time to plant the garden this spring. We have a lot of things coming up. Two wedding showers, two weddings, three wedding receptions and a stay in April at Kristin's while Tim is in Germany for work. I think I will be going to the farm during the week when it gets closer to planting time to get things ready. No starting my own plants this year due to selling (and hopefully showing) the house. Things have changed on that front. We don't have it on the market right now due to refinancing our loan in case it doesn't sell. We have a loan currently that would reset in 2012. So if we end up having to rent it out, we want a fixed rate. We close in the next week or two and then we will try to sell by owner. It will give us more leeway on price due to not paying a realtor commision on the sale. I did find a great website that tells you what houses have sold for in your area & how many days & pricing info. They also have the current listing info on there too. It is redfin.com. Since there are so many houses for sale in our area, putting up our own sign with a blog about our townhome might work. I hope so.
This next weekend is Amy's shower. Steve will probably head to the farm to get more drywall done. I think the weekends are open for farm time after that until mid-April.

I'm sure all the snow is gone now. It was 63 degrees today up there.

Looks like you had some great family time!

Hope we can all get out there and plant soon...I'm itching for dirt!

It´ll take a long time until we can plant anything outside over here. There´s still around 2 feet of snow everywhere here. Nights are still freezung cold here, so the few hours of heat from the sun doesn´t make much difference.

Take care!
Christer.

Oh the weather is beautiful here to...You do have a very busy schedule..do what you can and everything will fall into place.. I didn't do seeds this year either and I think it is because of all the snow...Now I regret it..will plant seeds in the ground and also buy plants from local nurseries..now I have to decide what I want to plant...You have a wonderful day.

She is so cute and just so tiny. Glad you and Steve got to see her again. I did see "Up In The Air" last night and on the scale of 1-10 will give it about a 6-7...George is nice to look at, but the story line was very repetative and not much of a plot. I'm not sure how it got nominated for Best Picture...and he didn't do anything so great that he should have been nominated for Best Actor, other than looking sexy....lol...debbie
