It pretty much made my day, week, month. I wish I could say that we went out and celebrated, but we're broke so we just rented some movies and had a pizza, but I might have to go buy a lottery ticket in the morning.

Last weekend was mainly dedicated to the yard. Nick turned the pile of dirt next to the retaining wall into a proper ramp, allowing us to easily navigate the lawnmower and wheelbarrow to the lower half of the yard. I had ambitions to reclaim some of the flowerbeds around the gazebo. After floundering around for about 30 min I conceded defeat to the belly, luckily Nick took pity on me and did a little digging. I've reigned in my gardening plans to filling the front bed along the house and reclaiming and planting the bed around the gazebo. Moira was only to happy to help with digging in the mud and getting dirty.

In Feb. I helped my mom put on her annual women's boating seminar. This was the 11th year. It's a big event with several speakers and around 100 participants. As soon as that was done I decided to try making a new web page for my frisbee dog club. I'm in charge of soliciting donations and well was just plain embarrassed to send to people to the old page. I think it turned out quite nicely, and the best part was that I didn't have to learn any programming. I found a microsoft program that just let me drag and drop everything in to place. Then I had Nick around to fix the tricky bits. You can check it out at www.woofd2.com .
We've had numerous projects at the house, and got a good start on the two flower beds that we are determined to reclaim this year. We have big plans to put a large bed along the street in front of the house, but that might have to wait until fall. Nick got the bathroom wall repaired and now we just have to get some money, figure out what we're going to do, and put the rest of it back together.
