Growing up.

I'm beginning to understand why there are so many mommy blogs of kids who are pre-school age and not so many once the kids get older. Things that are happening in the house are complicated to explain and stretch out for days/weeks at a time and pretty much just involves us talking/arguing/discussing things that need to be addressed/done in the next 5 minutes/scheduled (or we are just yelling at Maxi, the puppy). It's not very photogenic, nor is it really interesting to anyone else outside the family unit. Trust me, I've explained some of the things to friends at work and sometimes I get a shrug, sometimes I get a yawn, and sometimes I get the response, "I have no idea what you are talking about." Hmmm...

I'm not sure where this blog is going, but I'm still trying...

We got an energy audit done on the house because we were concerned about our high heating bills. It's sponsored by Pepco and was only $100 (and is probably going to reveal thousands of dollars of possible improvements to the house to recoup probably less than 10% of our heating bill for 3 months out of the year...)

They come and put this thing on your door, make sure all the windows are closed and suck air out of the house to see how leaky your house is. Pretty cool.

Jeremy and I also went out on a date to learn Adult, Child and Infant CPR. It was a 6 hour class taught by the Red Cross and I really had a nice time relearning CPR. I think the last time I was certified was in 1992 when I was training to be and actually passed the test to become an EMT.
