I knew today was going to be a good day because I managed to sleep in until almost 8:00. The woodpecker didn't wake me up, and the neighbor's dogs weren't barking and baroo-ing.

Today was a scheduled rest day. I wasn't sure how my body was going to feel after doing six miles on Saturday (I haven't done 6 miles in over two years!) but it felt great! Knees are happy, hips are happy, calves are happy... I can't tell you how good it feels to finally feel like I can push my mileage! Yay! On today's rest day I:

- finished mulching the front garden
- painted our downstairs bathroom
- talked to my dad about babysitting our piano while the new carpeting goes in and we try to sell the house

Yes, I did type "sell the house." Most of you have read that from me so many times it's probably getting to be like the boy who cried wolf. Up until now, we haven't really had a real reason to move... I mean, we both want to live in a city, but we were doing well up here, so no real rush.

But that all changed when I got laid off. There are just about NO positions in education where we are right now - this means that right now it would be about impossible for me to find a job around here. We wrote up a list of things we need to do, and we're doing them! Painting the bathrooms, getting new carpeting, talking to our realtor... I think that the silver lining around my furloughing is that it is the kick in the butt we needed to really deal with this house.

Sigh... so much to do! Tomorrow is another day.

    Sounds like a good plan. Any ideas about where you want to go from here as far as a job goes?

    Wow.... it sounds like you are going to make lemonade from lemons. I really do hope that this leads to you living where you want to live.
