It's almost 6 p.m. as I write this and the sun is still shining beautifully! I didn't realize it was evening until Ben mentioned dinner. I love daylight savings time!
It was a low-key weekend in Bloomington. ISU played in the Missouri Valley Conference championship game and lost to Drake again (apparently losing to them twice this season wasn't enough). So now we wait and see if the Redbirds will go to The Big Dance for the first time in 10 years.
We browsed through a Home Show yesterday, but didn't see anything we were particularly interested in. Ben's excited to start landscaping, and I'm looking forward to working on our enclosed front porch. It has an ugly, peeling gray-ish floor right now and zero furniture so we have our work cut out for us. It'll be great to essentially have an extra room in the house during the warmer months though.
We watched the Assassination of Jesse James and it was w-a-y too long. Nearly three hours! Casey Affleck is as good as everyone's been saying, and Brad Pitt is good too.
I gotta wrap this up and do some preliminary packing for Wednesday's trip.
Have a good week!
