The randomly selected (DH, paper slips, and a tupperware) winners are: blogless Nicole, Julie, and Stacey! Congratulations and thank you everyone for your great suggestions. The redo of the studio is in the preliminary planning stages. That is code for we are waiting for the general contractor's bid and the check from the insurance company. I won't be able to avoid blogging about the basement re-do, so you will see, eventually, the final studio with all the suggestions taken to heart.
My 300th post finds me in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, and thankful for high-speed Internet access. All of Wisconsin is lovely and this area is no exception. It is so green here and the traffic is certainly much lighter than around the southern part of the state. So, even for a Monday after a week of vacation, I feel pretty good.
Thanks to everyone who reads this weblog and to all of you that comment. I've been blogging for about one and a half years and it has really enriched my life. I've found wonderful new friends through blogging and I've even gotten closer to members of my family that read the blog. Thanks for enriching my life, you guys.
