Hi There. Remember Me?

I totally understand if you don’t. Remember me, that is.

I’ve neglected you — not just writing here, but reading and commenting, too. Like everyone, especially this time of year, I’ve got a ton going on.

But, you know what, I’m going to try and commit to this blog at least four times a week through December and see where it gets me. Where that is, I can only imagine, but I have to try.

And, what a better way to start then to show you who came by our yard the other day.

Do you think they came to see the new car? (More on that later this week!)

Seriously, we get deer in our yard on a regular basis, but these past couple days, they’ve been out in the middle of the day. I got a horrible picture, but a picture nonetheless.

Again, I think they are pissed at me for hitting their cousin, and that they decided to come and check me out firsthand. The eating the grass thing is just cover.

So what else? I got nothin’. At least not now. But stay tuned for many more updates this month (if I can do it!). But, for you, I will try. I have neglected you.


Noah’s Ark

So this is what Noah felt like?

Ugh. The basement water issue is back.

The crazy Nor’easter blew through over the last 36 hours. Nothing in the basement until 11:30 last night when it started seeping in. That’s the kiss of death. We don’t get a huge flood, we get constant seepage.

As in the type that requires using the shop vac, oh, I don’t know, every 15 minutes. It’s horrible.

It’s also more than $7,000 to fix. Needless to say, I’m pretty good with the shop vac. We get water when nobody else seems to. Very strange. It’s been on and off since we’ve been in the house.

But, I’m also home from work in order to do it. Can’t really have a wife who is seven months pregnant doing the work.

So, even though the rain has stopped (for now), the water continues.

What else? I got nothin’.
