Where'd August go?

Seriously ... I woke up yesterday and it was September, but August was a blur. Absolutely crazy.

Lots of stuff going on. Finally got rid of the last of the old furniture, which the Salvation Army didn't take. We also called Vietnam Veterans of America but they never returned our call or left a message, so we were pretty much forced to purple sticker 'em and put them out on the curb. Last of the furniture left today. Now Julie can park in the garage again :)

Epic yardwork took place last weekend. We trimmed the crabapple tree in the backyard. I swear, if I could turn a profit from that thing I wouldn't have done that, because the amount of crabapples that damn tree produced was astounding. The entire patio was carpeted in crabapples when the day was out. Literally, carpeted. We swept them up and used the snow shovel to load 'em into a yard waste bag. When you're moving crabapples by the shovelful, you know there's a lot.

US Waterproofing fixed the water problem we had with the basement. Doesn't look like any water came in this time. I need to see more storms to see if it's truly fixed, though -- the rain wasn't nearly as epic as it was that one day I ended up toting it up in buckets for 7 hours straight.

Anyway ... not long 'til the baby comes now. Due date is October 2nd. I've got some furniture to build :)
