I Actually Did Things!

You guys want to see something funny?  Not funny “haha”, but funny “just my luck”.

At least it will be nice the day we leave?  Seriously though, I think the weather is going to be better in DC this weekend.  Sigh, that’s typical.  You have 4 days to get your act together Vegas and act like a desert.  Do it.

Anyway, no news on the house yet, apparently the seller is now getting his own estimate to replace the roof in hopes that it will be less than the one we submitted.  Good luck dude, we didn’t even send you the highest bid we got, that one was about $2000 more.

This past weekend was a combination of relaxation and fun, with excessive amounts of champagne thrown in.  Friday night I stayed in and made some homemade chicken fried rice and banana chocolate chip bread.  Both things were delicious and I’m hoping they last me until at least Wednesday since I have no plans to grocery shop this week.

Saturday morning I was woken up bright and early by the sounds of a table saw and home construction.  There should be laws against that kind of thing happening during the 7:00 hour of a Saturday morning, just sayin.  Thanks to the home renovations on the street over, I was bored out of my mind by 12 pm, and had already painted both my fingers and toes an obnoxiously bright color.  Cue text from one of the roommates, “Do you want to drink with me?”

One bottle of champagne and a few mimosas later, I was feeling adventurous and decided to head out for the evening.  Nachos were consumed, a lot of Corona Lights imbibed (we were sitting outside it was necessary), and hours and hours past my bedtime later I face planted into my pillow for a solid 7 hours of sleep, only to begin the madness again at noon yesterday.

I crashed my other roommate’s Easter celebrations with her family, where more mimosas were enjoyed along with some wine.  I also ate a lot of delicious food over the course of the day at their house including french toast casserole, bacon, sausage, ham, potatoes, and crescent rolls the size of my face.  The drive back to Arlington last night was long (ok it was 45 minutes but it felt long), and I once again could not wait to face plant into bed.  That seemed to be the theme of the weekend.

Thank baby Jesus that my next three weeks of work are all 4 day weeks, because I don’t know if I’d make it otherwise.  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as well, now who’s in for a group detox?
