Mon County has a ReStore!

I just found out that Mon County has a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  Very cool.  It's about time the area had a place to donate as well as a place to look for recycled building materials.  I wish they would have had it when we still had the farm.  There was a lot they could have come out and picked up there. 
Oh well! 

At any rate, I'm looking forward to checking the place out.  Maybe they have a set of used french doors!

George Carlin's Last Interview

I was checking in on the RSS feeds I subscribe to and Gawker had a post about a Psychology Today interview with George Carlin posted today. The interview is only a week or so old. The journalist was apparently so enthused that what was supposed to be only 350 word turned into 14,000. It's a good read.

Previously on Sarah's Blog...

Since I started updating using Twitter, I've been even more lax in making time to post here. I never thought I would really get into using Twitter and it is doubtful that anyone gives a crap what I am doing throughout the day. Regardless, it is kind of fun. A year ago I'd have been horrified at the thought of letting everyone know what I am doing, but when I started using Facebook and the status feature more frequently it became habit. So for now, I'm having fun with it.

Anyway...what's new? Well we have a bunch of projects around the house we're trying complete, which is a trick with two little ones. Steve's been working hard to build a better fence around part of the yard and that has taken up much of the precious weekend moments for him. I'll be much happier when it is finished though because our dogs are miserable right now. SOOO Bored. Poor things. I am not sure that the fence will hold Kira in, but it'll slow her down at least. She knows better than to go to the road, though, so that's good.

I'm working on extending our flower beds in the front of the house. We'll also be putting in a sidewalk to the front door.

We need to have someone look at the masonry on our chimney. It is letting in water and seeping down through the plaster around the chimney upstairs. I just hope that won't cost too much. Patching we can probably afford - A new roof we cannot.

Piper is sleeping through the night and is generally a really laid back, easy to deal with baby. She's also got a great sense of humor and has been smiling up a storm.

I'm working on various web projects in my free time as well as at work. All of them involving WordPress and WordPress MU. I'm really quite taken with the platform. It's so elegant and easy to use. I've learned a lot over the last year that I've been using it and in the last few months I've learned even more. It has really changed how I view web design and has made me a better designer.

speaking of...I'm going to get back to work. ;)
