Well, that’s it.  It looks like I’ve totally stopped blogging.  Which is a bit sad because it did provide a nice journal of what the family has been doing.

Since I last updated here, we’ve driven to Arkansas for a funeral (and got to see a lot of people we hadn’t seen in awhile), visited Evan a couple of times, he’s visited us a couple of times, we’ve completed the redecoration of Evan’s room and also Erin’s room.  I can’t remember if I ever wrote about how we’ve redone the hallway ceiling or redecorated the guest bathroom. We have only the ceilings of the master bedroom area and living room to do and I think I’m going to hire out the living room since the ceilings are so high.

And then I’ve gotten a good start on the queen-sized bed project.

Easter was fun since Mel hosted her entire extended family and (Evan excepted) everyone showed up.  So life has been perking along nicely.

Evan and Cassie experienced a hiccup with their wedding plans when the venue that they had decided upon abruptly sold the property and so they’ve had to revert to one of their other plans.

And finally, while in Arkansas, I was given Andy’s old black powder rifle.  I spent some time scrubbing the rust off of it and cleaning it up in general and am now ready to fire it.  I have had to acquire a number of things to support that and still need to buy some stuff but I’m almost ready to head to a range and shoot it.
