cleaning house and monopoly

So, it's Saturday here once again. Marco worked until mid afternoon today, so i found myself with plenty of time to get the house in order. I took down the Christmas decorations and packed them up for another year. did laundry, which seems like a never ending task, cleaned bathrooms, vacuumed.... you know the regular Saturday chores. I opened the windows and got a nice fresh breeze going thru.... it was probably in the 60's, very pleasant.

Last night Marco and I had some friends over for dinner and games. It was fun! We broke out the juicer and had some fresh juice.... and played Monopoly. Now, I haven't played monopoly in YEARS, and when i did play... when i was like 9 years old, we didn't play by the real rules.... i don't think that before last night i ever made it thru an entire game, and i certainly never used the houses or the hotels. Well, I lost, and it was pretty pathetic. I had negative $92, and the other girl won with $10,000+ dollars. I guess this just means that I'm going to have to practice so that I don't suck so horribly bad next time!!

no, i'm not pregnant....

but i do have exciting news!! Marco and I got an offer on the house!! If everything goes smoothly we'll be closing Jan 22nd. We're looking forward to being in Washington, and most especailly being close to the family again. We've missed them so much! We'll keep you all posted as things progress. Happy Holidays!

I am Legend

So I'm not one for scary movies.... not that i get nightmares or anything bad. but sometimes i let my imagination run wild... especially when i'm at home alone and it's night.... i think too much. but anyway. Marco and I went and saw I am Legend last night. a little scary, but good. not as scary as i thought it was going to be. not saying that i didn't jump multiple times (half of those times because marco poked me)

i'd rather be.... suntanning!!

seriously. we had record breaking weather today (at least according to a guy i work with... but i didn't verify it) apparently the previous high was 74degrees, but today, December 11, 2007, when it should be hat and scarf weather, it's swim suit weather at a whopping 80degrees!! it almost makes me want to break out the grill and have watermelon, but that's just wrong. we should be having stew and hot chocolate. it's like a washington summer. I got a text from TJ (my brother, who happens to live in the " 'burg") and he said it was -3 degrees!!

a little somethin'-somethin'

So, nothing really exciting is happening right now, but i haven't posted in 2 weeks, so i figure i should drop a little somethin'-somethin' even if it really isn't much of anything.

The past couple weeks have been pretty uneventful. Marco and I have been Christmas shopping. Marco washed the car (yesterday, the weather was in the 70's once again!!) I started going to the gym across the street from my office. I go to a pilates class every thursday after work. We've both been a little sick the past few days. I'm making sugar cookies this afternoon. I cleaned up the green room, and I think i'm going to turn it into my "studio". Set up all my painting stuff and start painting again. Maybe i'll take a pic of that when i get finished.

Well i'm kind of grasping at straws..... happy holidays!
