Weekend Update

With both weekend days free from work, it was inevitable that I would start to get a sore throat Thursday night, and have a raging case of swine flu cold by Saturday morning, thereby ruining my grand plans of mega productivity this weekend. Boo hiss. Instead of tackling many a household project, I did a good deal of lounging, reading, tv-ing, and drinking fluids. (Which, if I didn't feel so crusty, would have been a superb weekend.)

Alas, NavyGuy and I did get a few things done around the house. We're up to four pictures hung on the walls in the house, and some laundry was done. We also got free tickets to the Skagit area home tour, where local builders showcase fabulous homes they've built. We toured a beautiful two story home in Anacortes, a home originally built in 1896 that was being remodeled, and a beach house on the southern end of Whidbey Island. The remodel was interesting to see how they restored features in the home while combining modern conveniences; the beach house was cool because it was a 4500 square foot house built on a lot that was only 50 feet wide! The house was super long and narrow (see floor plans here), but the windows made the place feel really spacious (and living smack dab on the water, with sand twelve feet from your back door is sort of worth an unusual home layout). I was afraid that touring other homes would feel like cheating on our new house, or worse, that we'd suffer from buyer's remorse. But luckily, we simply picked up a few decorating ideas - no house envy here.

Back to the grind tomorrow - the literal coffee grind - with a full day of work. But I'm looking forward to Stamp Club starting up again this week, and I'm reading a really good book that will probably keep me up all night... :)

P.S. Anyone know a way to make their husband stop yelling at the football game on TV?

I think those same words were uttered in my house.

A few more expletives though...followed by a very loud 'YES!' that assured me the game was almost over.

Send them both to FdL on Sundays! Love to have company, yelling at the tv. (Sorry, guys, not sure why my football watching was not carried on in the gene pool.)

Send him to Iraq :-). I have to admit that him not being here during football season is quite the blessing.

Have a baby! (right Momma H?)

Then you can yell in a whisper down the stairs saying "Would you shut up???!!?? The baby is SLEEPING!!!"

Even though you witnessed some crazy moments with young children last night on the phone, they can come in handy.......

It's worth a thought. :)

Wow - that may be the ONLY incentive for Sister to reproduce... football silence!
