Going to Aspen for the Snowmass balloon festival.

Maddie and I are getting excited to go to Aspen for the Snowmass balloon festival this coming Saturday. First, we are going to celebrate Jarod's birthday at Cinzitti's restaurant with some friends. Then, head to Aspen after. We are about 11 people including kids. It's really going to be fun. We rented a 3 bedroom and a loft condo and so we might just cook in their. Maddie can't stop talking about her friend coming with us. She is really excited. Have a good afternoon guys.

We recently moved from Chicago to Atlanta. I feel like I am in another country. I don’t know many people here and have been exhausting Angie’s list trying to find the best handymen. In Chicago, we were set. We used home security Chicago for our alarm system and the staff was very helpful. I had gotten a recommendation from a friend who used them before. Unfortunately in Atlanta, I know no one and don’t have anyone to give me recommendations. I also found a great gas company when we were in Chicago. This week, I have already gotten quotes from four different painters. The quotes were so expensive! I don’t know if the prices they gave were the going rate or if they were trying to nickel and dime an unsuspecting Midwestern transplant. Until I get everything settled, I am going to devote all my time and energy to tying up loose ends around the house. Hopefully it won’t take too much longer. It would just be so much easier if we were back in Chicago!
