I'm surprised I'm up and blogging right now. Chris and I had a fun but long and exhausting day! We spent the whole morning and afternoon at one of moms houses she just sold in Villa Park. Chris was the repair man and I was the house cleaner. It's such an awesome side job. Chris loves to fix things and I love to clean. Works out great.

Now I have no excuse to have a fat butt and chunky legs. Chris is starting to get our little home gym up and running in the garage. His project while I'm away is insulating and drywalling the garage. I'm excited! We will be fit again! We had Bible study tonight which was awesome...we love it and love our friends in the group. We have the best friends in the whole world and have much to be thankful for. Good night world!

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
