Two very exciting things (dork edition)

Well, that may be overstating things a bit, but I cannot seem to contain my joy regarding the following:

1.  The weather forecast for Central Arkansas shows highs in the mid-70's for the next handful of days.  And rain.  Oh, the rain.  Perhaps we can now put the Summer of Hot fully behind us; and

2.  Our minor/major kitchen renovation is complete.  Minor, because it was only the installation of a new countertop, new sink/faucet/disposal, and a new diswasher.  Major, because my wife and I have been without a fully-functioning kitchen since August 8th*.  Literally, our stove resided on a piece of cardboard in our dining room during this time, waiting to be reinstalled.  It basically crapped up the entire house, which we are not used to, even with a 21-month old running things.  But now it is completed and it looks terrific.

Oh, and I almost forgot -- new TeeVee shows begin this week.  No more reading pesky books for..."entertainment" ;)

*  Due first to unreliable countertop contractors who either would not get back to us regarding an appointment or would delay in getting us the estimates themselves.  We ultimately went with a DIYish granite-tile installation by our general contractor.  But then the tile took 10 days to ship from Home Depot.  Ugh.  It was a frustrating mess.
