Not much blogging going on here.

Sorry so quiet! I've been:
  • Driving kids to summer day camp and back, which ended last Friday
  • Following the Tour de France on my other blog and Twitter, which ended last Sunday
  • Doing some training but (of course) never quite enough (as you can see in the sidebar)
  • Breaking in my new Adamo saddle, which I like but which is taking a long time to get accustomed to
  • NOT racing, haven't done any races since a slow half marathon in April (they tend to take too much time out of my training anyway)
  • Trying to figure out how to get in my training at all now that the kids are not in camp until school starts August 25th
  • Getting the new house ready to move into (STILL remodeling, will post some photos when there's something actually completed to show. Today's excitement was starting the new garbage pickup service over there)
  • Getting the old house ready to move out of (YES, we have a great offer on the table, but have to finish up all the final details of fixing up the old house)
  • Putting up random links and interesting things on Facebook lately instead of here on the blog like I used to
That's all for now!

My husband took this cell phone photo late this afternoon of all the boats moored out in the nearby Miles River in anticipation of tonight's firework display.

Our new countertops were installed today - sand-colored laminate. We'll probably replace them with stone in five years or so but for right now it saved us several thousand dollars that we're spending on other things! I think it looks great, anyway. We're hoping the whole job will be finished within a couple more weeks. However, I just gave the contractor another job today - installing marble flooring in our half bath and a couple new toilets. It's always something!
