5 minute update

Right now, I am enjoying the calm before the storm (quite literally). Here are the highlights of our life for the last month:
1. I made it safe and sound to Minnesota and back. It felt really good to be home, and see everyone on a (not-so-hectic) weekend. I was able to make it to Kristen's shower, see the house where Kristen and Todd will be living after their wedding in mid-July, and help celebrate Jaedon's 2nd birthday. Thank you to all who help make the weekend at home memorable!
2. Pete made it back from the fishing tourney in Ill. He did not come back empty handed either! :) We have about 21 dinners of salmon sitting in the freezer waiting to be eaten! Evidently their boat placed well in the fishing tourney, and he really enjoyed the visits with his extended family!
3. Memorial day weekend was spent working outside. I even got tan ~ which is rare for me as I am usually fairly religious about applying sunblock! We bought a log splitter and so far have about 1 winter of wood cut up and stacked in the garage. It's amazing how quickly a large log can be made into burnable pieces with the aid of a machine!
4. We spent last weekend in Luddington with our friends camping. Although, the weather did not cooperate (cold and rainy), it was still a good time. I forgot the digital camera, so no pictures.
5. I now have 2 kittens -- Nala and Halo. The kittens are getting used to their new surroundings, and are starting to warm up to Pete, Hondo, and myself. They are really cute. I have yet to take a photo of our new kittens, but... once I do, I will certainly post! They have lasted ~1 week in the garage, so hopefully this is a good sign of things to come! :)
6. Pete is travelling once again. We pulled out his passport yesterday, and... he has been a lot of places. He is now in Mexico, and should come home next Wednesday. We are both hoping that this project sticks to its original timelines.
7. Pete and I will not be moving to South Korea. He is now taking some class for a different project. This class will take about 1 year.
8. I am now working 4 -10 hour days for the summer. It is really nice to have a 3 day weekend... every weekend.
9. Detroit lost the Stanley Cup.
10. I have a really clean house right now... it feels awesome! :) I even hung up some pictures around the house... its amazing how much decorations can make a house feel more like a home.

Have a good weekend!

Just curious how you knew on Monday that Detroit was going to lose? Can you predict the future? :) Annu

That's good to hear you won't be moving to Korea! Sounds like you guys are always on the move! Or at least Pete. Hope you're holding up by yourself in that big old house!
