I guess I should be reserving space in the trunk for my toolbox next time we head to KC. Roy's going to be calling in some home improvement favors next time I'm up there. He's helped haul dirt. He and Judy have both helped plant lots of groundcover. This weekend he helped install a new screen door.

He's got a couple of projects waiting in the wings. An entertainment center that must be reassembled (that may be completed by the time we get up there next though). The bar and possible bathroom in the basement need tile installed. Better pack my knee pads :).


Well, Emily may have set a world record today. She went from 3:15 this morning until bedtime (7:30) without sleeping unattached from Alicia. So we called her hand at bedtime. She detached herself and was showing no interest in eating anymore, so I read her a book, sang her a song and laid her down. A bit of comotion arose after 15 minutes or so. Took about 30 minutes to get things back under control and she has now officially put herself to sleep on her own!!!!!!!!
