Mother's Day

I finally got my espresso machine.  It's been like my Christmas gift and B-day gift for a couple of years running now.  My problem is that I can't decide which one to get!  So, I procrastinated . . . and finally Andy just ordered me one (for Mother's Day).  I used it today for the first time -- this morning before heading off to church.  I had a Swiss machine a couple of years ago that was fantastic, but it broke, and I couldn't find a way to get it fixed (procrastinated); it prob would've cost almost as much to fix it as it would have to buy a new one, anyway.  But this new one, I don't think makes espresso as well and doesn't froth the milk as well, in my opinion.  But maybe I just need to give it some time and practice!

Today was Alix's last day at Valley Forge.  She spends 5 days w/ her roommate in Pittsburg, then flies home.  She'll have about 6 weeks until R-Day (entrance day into West Point).  I can't believe she's finished w/ her prep school -- time just flies.

Last night Andy and I went to Indulge -- a French restaurant in Denver -- for dinner w/ friends.  I don't know, I'm just not crazy about French food for some reason.  The red wine was good, tho, and then we went to a different place for dessert in Highlands.  That was fun.  But all day today, I've felt like I'm dragging.  Not sure if it was the moderately late night (a little after midnight), the 3 glasses of wine, or the 7 miles I ran yesterday, but I just can't seem to shake the fog out of my head!

Andy did yard work w/ the kids.  I went to Cherry Creek mall to get sheets and a duvet cover -- something I've been putting off for a while now.  And I took a walk w/ Anastasia; she needed to get some Mexican pastries for extra credit in Spanish class.  So, we walked to a local Mexican bakery about 1.5 miles from our house and bought them, then walked home.  It was a beautiful day -- sunny and warm.

Now, I'm going to clean the house -- or try to get some done.  I know it's not exactly the sexiest thing to do on Mother's Day, but I'll feel better about things if I get ahead on the work for the week.  I also have to do some picking of stuff out for our porch construction and etc.  I really hate making decisions, but having a deadline makes things easier!
