The Concussion Conundrum

This title sounds like a Nancy Drew mystery, doesn't it?

So if you read my last post, you know that I've had a concussion since Wednesday evening. At first, I was all "woohoo! long weekend! I can do mini stuff for 4 days straight!"

Unfortunately, I had no idea what a concussion actually entailed.

Triathlon Training and Emergency Rooms - My Public Service Announcement

It's been a while since my last update, but I have had quite a bit happening.

I went to a mini-retreat last weekend, and we worked on a Tuscan room box. We stayed up late, giggled, drank lots of wine, and generally had a fabulous time. In spite of working on it 4 days straight, I still have a lot of work to do so I'll post pictures later.

This week marks 14 weeks before my big Half-Ironman training event. Since I've been sporadically training (i.e., not at all), it's crunch time... not a moment more to procrastinate!

I went out Wednesday for what was supposed to be a 20 mile ride. It was hot, but I had on my cute sleeveless jersey, bike shorts, and two ice-cold bottles of water. I was having fun, and looking forward to pushing myself to see how quickly I could get the mileage in and get home.

Dura-Craft Newberg - Rehab Project

I have done it again. This officially makes house/kit number seven! I think the most fascinating thing about this house is it's history.

I found it on Craigslist (of course) and when I arrived to pick it up, I asked the seller what its story was. She said she used to own a bar and one day it just showed up there. She asked around but no one knew where it came from or who had dropped it off. A mystery house!

I just can't help myself. There's just something about a cute little dilapidated house that I can't turn my back on.

Whitebrush Manor - Railings and Balcony Floor Trim are Complete

It has been a while since my last post, but there hasn't been much going on in the land of my dollhouse. I was out of town over the July 4th weekend visiting my daughter, and other than that I've just been steadily plugging away at my painting job.

Speaking of which....
