Doing Our Part. . .

to keep the economy going. We decided to take advantage of Obama's stimulus package and ordered some new windows for our house. We are only replacing five for now - the ones that need it the worst, and those that should match those for aesthetic reasons.

We are replacing both windows in Kendra's room, and the casement windows from our office and bedroom. We're also doing the one at the top of the stairs because it currently isn't designed to open, and we'd like it to to help with air flow in the house.

We went to the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival this past weekend. The festival wasn't bad, but the transportation issues were so bad we won't go back. There was no parking at the festival, so they had shuttles to run you from designated parking areas. We waited for about an hour to catch it the first time, and we had arrived in time to catch the first one of the day. It took over 30 minutes to get back. In the sun, with no shade and no water. And the shuttle was a school bus - which made getting our stroller on rather interesting. It definitely put a damper on the day.

Otherwise things have been fairly quiet here. We're working on household stuff - boring things that come with owning a home. Hopefully we can make some real progress on the wall this weekend...
