Weekend fun!

What’s new you ask? Irises that were once crammed together in our front yard are now replanted with plenty of room around them to grow (great job honey!). Our basement moved one step closer to being finished with the acquisition of some cool tiles for the fireplace and the first coat of wall paint applied. And on Sunday we attended a baseball game in the DC Councilmember’s box that brought us great joy for two reasons. First of all, the Nationals won 6-1 on a gorgeous fall day. And secondly we got to sit three seats down from our Ward 5 council member Vincent Orange, who in his mayoral race declared he was the only person morally fit to be mayor of DC since he alone opposed gay marriage. It was really fun to hold hands and whisper sweet nothings in each others ears, much we hope to his mortification/chagrin! (Oh, and we got free food and beverages—an overall fantastic afternoon.)

Su had a very mysterious bug bite incident this weekend though that I’m afraid I wasn’t very sympathetic to until I saw all the welts. We still don’t know what happened. Bugs just love my Susi those bas$*&@ards!

We are excited to get together with our other “Mamas” from our Maybe Baby class and watch a football game at M & Ks next weekend, and then plan our camping trip (we’ll bring a lot of bug spray!) By the time camping rolls around, Su and I should have some idea as to whether our second try at letting our “adopted” sperm show its stuff was successful. It’s all good.

My thought for the day today has to do with paint rollers. Have you ever tried to wash out a paint roller? It’s darn near impossible to ever get the paint out. No matter how long you rinse it, and no matter how clean it looks, one more squeeze results in only one thing. More paint flowing out. There has got to be a way to use technology to apply this concept to food. Just think! We could feed all the hungry! Wouldn’t that be awesome! Okay, onward and upward! -Monica

P.S. Hey M, best of luck with the new job possibility. That would be AWESOME!

Seriously funny, girls!!! The funniest part is that just last weekend K was trying to wash out a paint roller and finally decided that buying a new one was worth the extra $4 as opposed to spending a half hour to get the paint out.

We got a seriously good laugh at your story!!!

Looking forward to seeing you, ladies!
