Running: Shea is up to four miles. I'm at three and a handful. But it feels sooooo good, and now we fall asleep at 9 p.m.
Adventures in butternut sqaush: I found a recipe for butternut squash pasta sauce from none other than convicted felon Martha Stewart. I thought we would hate it, mostly because when it goes through the food processer it resembles pumpkin puke. Instead it was quite tasty. This corn chowder recipe was also a winner.
Dog park: We found a dog park we can walk to. Unfortunately Mac is still timid from getting nipped by a large dog in Minneapolis so he wanders around like a anti-social toddler. The dogs in KC seem much more well behaved so hopefully he'll make friends in time. It probably doesn't help his self-confidence though, when we spend the hour pointing out dogs we would rather own.
Car insurance: We got car insurance, and our six-month premium is $200 less than Minnesota with the same coverage. However we didn't get full coverage on Shea's missing-door-handle-and-hubcaps beauty. Instead we're hoping that if it dies, we can buy another Toyota at half-price. Sticky gas pedals be damned.
