After many phone calls (thank you SOO much, Amy!) and schelpping the defective gazebo back to WalMart, we arrived home with a new, intact "gazebo kit". It took Amy and I two days to assemble the thing (mostly because Christopher really wanted to HELP....), but I LOVE IT! I even bought a 6 ft mister hose and attached it under the awning of the gazebo for those really hot days when we want to be outside.
Here in Indiana we have had virtually NO rain in over a month. The yard is as brown as the desert and the dirt parched and cracked. Not good for my garden (although the rabbit and birds aren't helping much either), but great for sunnin' by the inflatable kiddie pool! I'm actually getting a little bit of a tan! :)
We had our GoenPalooza crew reunion/awards ceremony last night at Kroaker Heads in Anderson. Aaron and Sharon were there, of course, along with many of the "couldn't have done it without you" people involved in planning, organizing and implementing the Palooza. It was a great time and I am so honored to have been Paloozized! I plan to be healthy enough to attend the festivities again next year! SO THERE!
We are seriously looking for a house now. "Musts" are SINGLE story, minimum 3 br, 2 ba, minimum 1500 sq ft. Must be along the I-69 corridor somewhere between Lapel and Muncie, although first pick is Muncie since Sharyll lives there. Keep your eyes open and contact me if you see a house, especially a FSBO (for sale by owner) or lease-to-buy/contract.
I'm a tired girl tonight, but doing OK. Love, Claudia
