A quick note while I update my iPod. I finished the bathroom :-) It was a struggle and a learning experience, but I feel better for it. I have paint on my hands (and probably in my hair.). I'm so tired now, though that I'm going straight to bed as soon as I am done here.

It was a good day and a good weekend. I try not to think about the weekends where I used to just sit around and knit or read. They are a far distant memory and I don't think I will have one again anytime soon. We are going on vacation in a week, but that is different. I'm going to try to blog from there and post pictures - we'll see if the laptop will be willing to talk to the camera.

I was thinking this morning that it was a really nice, balanced weekend between family and working on the house. Today is Father's Day, so we had a nice family dinner at Mom and Dad's. We were going to eat outside, but it kept getting colder and threatening rain. I'm really grateful to have a wonderful family and my dad has been a big part of my life. In church this morning, we had to turn to our father's and say "You're my hero" and I had to fight back tears. I'm also grateful that my nephews have such a great Dad. So, here they are, the heroes of the day, Dad and Robb, looking happy and relaxed. It was a truly good day.
