Moving on from Muppets!

All right. Now that you have wasted more than a reasonable amount of time watching vintage Muppets videos (yes, vintage! To call them old, would be like calling me old. I know you wouldn’t want to insinuate such things, right?), we can move on.

The past two weeks have been filled with all kinds of real, ordinary life. The kind of life that doesn’t translate well to fascinating, must-read blog posts, but is nonetheless life worth living.

We replaced the basketball hoop the neighbors’ friends knocked down 5 years ago. With the kids being little, we didn’t miss it much, but it’s nice to have again now that the little people are outgrowing the Fisher Price model.

The grownups of the family went to “The Shoe” for the opening Buckeye Game. In the 12 years since we graduated, we have never once gotten a decent game, or good seats for that matter. 12 YEARS! Ah well, the experience was great once again, we won, I realized I should have applied a bit more sunscreen, and we followed it up with a fabulous meal at Schmidts. Can’t beat it, even if the game was a gimme.

*An amusing note: As we were driving to Columbus, passing cars with window flags, bumper stickers, and license plate holders, all bearing the Buckeye scarlet and grey, we noticed that all the passengers in those cars seemed…well…vintage. The realization that these are now our peers was both humorous and disconcerting.

The last weeks were also spent with such captivating tasks as garage cleaning, tree trimming, doorknob replacing (see I told you it was fascinating!) and our annual visit to see Thomas the Train, which may become the blog post of another day. All in all, everyday life happening.

Hope your last couple weeks were also filled with life!

Until next time…
