I’m Glad We Waited

Last night Randy and I watched the movie, “The Ruins”, that we’d recorded on the DVR. I had no clue what it was about a year or so ago when Randy was reading the book, and I had no clue what it was last night when I noticed Randy had recorded it on the DVR. […]

She Doesn’t Solve Everything

About a year ago Randy and I started using a maid. Despite the fact that Randy’s job no longer had him traveling and despite the fact that my job gets me home at a reasonable hour each day, we still weren’t managing to clean the place as regularly as we should. And when it came […]

Wait! Don’t Tell Me!

Recently I became addicted to RuPaul’s Drag Race on LoGo. It’s a combination of Project Runway (they create their own fashions) and America’s Next Top Model (they¬†participate in photo shoots and runway scenes). However, the big catch is that the contestants are drag queens. And it’s wonderful. I mean, these gals have talent. Them bitches […]

Our House, is a Very, Very, Very Fine House

How is it Monday already? We had a near identical weekend as the previous one: game night on Friday, friends/dinner and more games on Saturday, the house hunting and the gym on Sunday. This time around we intended to scope out 4 or 5 open houses I found online. But this being the first official […]

A House is Not a Home

Well, THAT house will not be OUR home. After much deliberation, Randy and I decided against purchasing that home in Arlington. Shockingly, we came ‘thisclose’ to putting in an offer. After visiting it twice during the open house on Monday, then returning again Monday night, we continuously went back and forth. At times Randy was […]

The One That Got Away?

Sigh. So Randy and I returned to that home in Arlington again last night (our third visit in two days). We were surprised that after the crowds attending Sunday’s open house nobody made an offer. We looked at a property last week that went under agreement just hours after we toured it. Anyway, we both […]


We had a pretty good weekend. Saturday night was game night (nothing unusual there…or was there?) with Chris and Pete. Good times, always. On Saturday, Randy and I went about running errands in the gorgeous spring-like (finally)¬†weather. He even managed to get me to go to the gym (the weather really must have put me […]

Wishin’ and Hopin’, and Thinkin’ and Prayin’

What a bizarre day yesterday was. Everything seemed normal while at work. Then Randy and I headed out to check out some local condos that are for sale. In case I’ve not mentioned it, we’re thinking of finding a new place. Even before I moved into his condo, we discussed eventually buying a place of […]

Happy…Because They Told Me So!

I read an Associated Press article this morning about a nationwide survey that took place in January that determined the happiest states in the country and the least happy states. Results were somewhat surprising in that Utah came in as the happiest state, with Hawaii coming in second. At the other end of the spectrum, […]

Mexico, Part III (my friend)

It’s Monday, it’s snowing, I’m in the office. But the trip was great. I can’t recall exactly where I left off, but after the busy first few days of driving to the ruins and exploring them (Chichen Itza and Coba) we arrived in Playa del Carmen for the rest of the trip. Our intention was […]
