September 13

After mowing the yard and working outside early this morning, I helped Jennie clean the house (dusting, vacuuming, hauling trash to the dump, etc). Funny how we tend to rest up during the work week, and wear ourselves out on the weekend, eh? Nearing 36 years of age, I am really starting to feel old. These days whenever I mow the yard, the only way to soothe these old bones is a handful of Ibuprofen and a one-hour power nap.

Daphne ate three meals today! We weighed her this morning and unfortunately she is still 15.0 pounds (same as last week). Hmmm, she does feel heavier with each passing day. At her last check up, the doctor told Jennie not to worry about Daphne's weight -- Daphne will let us know when she is full, so feed her generous portions of baby food, rice cereal, and breast milk.

Tomorrow, I hope to rest my aching body in between trimming the shrubs and weeding the mulch beds. Time permitting, Jennie, Daphne, and I need to agree on a tile color for our guest bathroom. Before the weather gets too cold, I would like to lay some tile (~55 square feet). Finally, our laundry room will be the only non-carpeted room needing tile. Oh well, as a friend of mine once said, "you can only polish a turd so much..." hehehe

Have a wonderful weekend!

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.

Your house is beautiful! You've put in a lot of hard work and done a lot of nice things to it. The "turd" advice is wise, but it hardly applies to your home. :)

Don't work too hard, and have a nice relaxing Sunday!
