Last One, I Promise

Oh hey, long time no see!  It seems as though I found the energy to post two days in a row, and then it wiped me out.  However, it’s finally Friday after what has seemed like the longest week in the history of the world and I’ve found some time to ramble.

Did you know it’s going to be hot this weekend? I’m sure you did, it’s all anyone is talking about.  Today in Arlington we’re expected to hit 104 degrees.  104.  What does one do/wear when it’s that hot out?  Sit in front of their window air conditioner and a bra and underpants?  Good, because that’s what I plan on doing all weekend.  Sorry to my roommate’s boyfriend ahead of time.

In all seriousness though, I really have no plans to go outside at all this weekend.  Unless you live under a rock (or not in the US) you know the US Olympic Trials started last week, and all of my TV viewing has been taken over by them.  My most favorite of favorite competitions started yesterday (gymnastics) and continues until Sunday night, so I have grand plans to hang out with some orange vodka in the AC and cheer on my favorites.  I’m also planning on tackling some craft projects for the new house, so we’ll see how that goes.

It occurred to me the other day, that I never actually showed you all any pics of our awesome giant backyard, and since I hate a pictureless post you’re getting them today.  The house is in a sweet neighborhood with lots of houses and kids and families, and we were fortunate enough to luck out with a lot that backs up to cornfields.  Do you know how nice it is to go outside and NOT hear screaming children.  It’s fantastic, although I’m slightly scared of our yard once it’s dark out.  There’s a lot of wildlife out there.  During our BBQ I saw not only chipmunks and rabbits, but also a giant fucking deer came strolling through.  And you know what live in cornfields?  Snakes.  Snakes live in cornfields. I shudder just thinking about it.  Anyway, here ya go.

Ok that’s the last of the house pictures until August.  I promise.  Well, unless something really cool happens.  Happy Friday!

  1. “neighbors to make friends with” haha YUP!

  2. That is the wilderness! So pretty.

  3. I have yet to watch any of the trials yet. I think I may skip it and save all my sports time for the actual olympics. Last time, I watched it practically every night…

  4. Ha ha ha- that picture is hilarious! I’m sure if you show up offering a case of Old Style they will welcome you into their pool with open arms 🙂

  5. I agree that this weather is killing me! UGH!

    I am not going to lie in that I love having close neighbors. I am such a weenie and I love having other people very close by. Before Keith and I bought our house we rented a condo that backed up a green belt. Of course Keith loved it and all I could ever think about what was who was out there. It was not ideal for me. Keith always laughs that people pay big bucks in Austin to back up to green betls and that is a major turn off for me.

  6. It’s insane how hot it has been in VA. Like what is the deal?! I’m planning on hanging out at the river all summer!
