Randomly Collected

The new carpet is in. And wow. I'm amazed at what a difference it makes! It's something we've wanted to do for a long time; we are so thankful that the Lord provided a generous tax return for 2007. The carpets are already bringing us great delight, and we also know that they will be a worthwhile investment in our home.

Here are a few before and afters:
Yes, Phoebe's carpets were that gross. I told you we'd wanted carpets for a long time!

Much better, don't you think? I'm pooped, but the carpets look great!

Also, I found out about a great new home remedy for Phoebe's...upset tummy. I already knew about the BRAT diet, and we've been trying to follow that as best we can. But after talking to the nurse today, she informed me that Chick-fil-A waffle fries (or french fries in general) are also helpful in alleviating diarrhea. No really. I would seriously not make this up! We are so going through the drive-thru later today for some lemonade and fries.

And that, my friends, is about all I can muster for today. Impressive, no? A more exciting update to come tomorrow... it's my weekly visit with Dr. D!

The carpet looks FANTASTIC! On a sdI_

That was a brief PSA from Callahan.

On to what I was trying to say...we are ALWAYS looking for good excuses to go to Chick fil A! Who knew I would get a Dr.'s excuse?!?
