Back Again

I must admit that I feel a bit guilty by my absence, but I feel more isolated from all of the friends I have made online-I miss you all. Our Internet, DSL thank goodness, is up and running so hopefully.....

Well, for the quick update, I'm still working in the micro lab testing for nasty little critters. The job is going well and I should be getting a pay increase and my benefits December first. I also switched my hours from 6:30 to 3:00, which is why my blogging has been on hold. KIA doesn't go to sleep until 9:30-10:00 and by then I'm ready for bed. I haven't even had time to read much lately (I've been stuck on the same book for almost a month). Weekends are of course filled with yard and housework. The busy life isn't what it's cracked up to be.

The other news is we found a hose in town to rent. It's an older 2 bedroom with a fenced in yard for the dogs and a wonderful garage. It's fairly close to everything in town so biking and walking has become a daily event. It's a good thing too, because our Subaru's transmission went out, so we're just down to the VW with no intention of getting a second car. I have even been biking to work most of the time. It's almost 3 miles one way, but there is a great bike path that starts 2 blocks from my house and goes all the way to where I work. I have a nice commuter bike with a built in headlight that runs on a generator from my wheel for those dark mornings. I miss listening to NPR, but the crisp morning air has been nice.

The family has been all been doing well. KIA is growing up every day. She's crawling everywhere including up the stairs, but hasn't taken that first step yet (although she does stand by her self for several seconds). She's been eating a bigger variety of food, but with no teeth, we haven't given her too much finger foods.

Well I guess this has been a quick update, I'm eager to visit some other sites. Bye for now.
