      Ds is 11. There definitely is some inappropriate content for young kids.

      Update is 4.4 on the SC GA border. I've been in CA quakes. This is my first in the south!

      Hope everything's okay. We were quite rattled by a 5.4 here a few years ago. Took a few days to get over it. Our first one! :)

      All is fine here.

      And I've been on some tours of the houses in charleston showing after the huge quake there. If we had anything that large here again, there'd be a lot more devastation!

  7. Here comes the snow and ice.

      Ankle is a bit sore today. Probably need new shoes, but I did sleep well! Couch to 5k is a good program

  9. Last night after dinner, ds 10 was pondering Schrodinger's cat... "I wonder if someone else could look and would then know if the cat was alive or dead. Would that work? But wouldn't the cat know if it was alive or dead even if no one else looked?" :D This was completely out of the blue...complete non sequitur and no idea what the trigger might have been.
  10. Gaack...driving to pick up cousin at Charlotte and airport parking is under construction, so no hourly lots. Blech!!!

  11. Grump. Need new dishwasher. Ours apparently has been leaking!

      You might just need a new gasket. These guys are my new best friends: http://www.reliableparts.com/

      Well, that and YouTube. There are instructions for everything on YouTube.

      We had repair guy out today. We thought it was something minor. He said we need a new one... Water leaking through motor. Machine is 8 years old...think they should last longer....

      We've had our latest for four years. Just replaced the door handle/latch, and the spring is out in the door hinge so it won't stay open on its own (though this doesn't affect operation). Within the first year, three of the clips on the "removable" rack features had snapped. We're not rough people. :/

  12. Completed first 5k today. Trail run. I'm beat!

      Spending rest of day lying down and whining :). I'm still only halfway through the couch to 5k, but I've always done stuff out of order. Dh and ds both finished third for their age class and in the 20s. I was 81st...but I finished (and then almost passed out, thus the lying down the rest of the day!) will likely try running the whiole time at the next in Oct on a road race rather than these damned trails. The hills were TOUGH!
