We're Back!

Sorry for the long absence - it looks like I'm a good once a month blogger! It's been on my to-do list since MLK Day...but I'm just now getting to it. That's ok - I'm pretty sure that everyone who reads this blog already knows what is going on with us anyway!

First, Mark is done with Practice Court! I don't think that I realized how much of a difference it would be - he doesn't have to read until 2 am every night and he's in such a better mood. I guess it really was a good thing that I didn't know any different since the entire time we've been married he's been in practice court.

Another thing you might have missed is Mark's cast!

We thought he might have broken his hand, but he actually ruptured the sheath around his tendon. He did this while trying to change my tire from one of my flats (I've had about 5 or 6 in the past year - I like to say that it's better to have a flat than a wreck!!). My Lexus has wheel locks on it which means that you have to use a key to get the tire off of the wheel - but since I have had so many flats, the key was stripped and it was impossible to remove the tire. Stubborn Mark tried for more than 2 hours to get that flat tire of my car - he never succeeded. BUT, he was vindicated when the tow truck driver using his air gun, and Discount Tire couldn't remove the tire with their machine. They ended up having to break the wheel lock to remove the tire. Mark was a great husband in fixing my tire and working with the AAA Tow Truck man! My tire is now fixed, and he warned me that the next time I get a flat tire, I have to deal with it. Luckily, the Reitmeier's continued our AAA coverage!!

In other news, the plywood on our wall is gone! We are waiting for the wall to be textured and painted - but unpainted drywall is much better than plywood!

Coming from my New York City weekend!
