|In case you saw the movie but didn't read the book, |
that's not where she got the mockingjay pin from!
I spent the drive home trying to not throw up. I thought it was maybe the camera angles in the movie that gave me motion sickness, but when I felt that way almost the entire weekend, I figured it was something else. As a result, again, no long run this weekend. I'm working from home tomorrow, so I'm going to try to get in an hour of running tomorrow and another day this week.
And now, on to the open house!
|Dining room...six chairs that all are different.|
|Stairs look like they're from a horror movie. More lighting|
|My first indication a single man lives here currently. So gross!|
|Master bedroom. I've never lived in a master bedroom! I'm going to be fancy.|
|Guest bathroom says "Hi, I need a makeover!"|
|Guest room closet. Go Red Sox!|
|Jeremy and I were going around opening all the shades. We're totally related.|
Oh, this is the guest room, for when you all come over to visit :)
|Dear Kitchen: Don't worry, I will make you pretty!|
Aside from the fact that most of the light fixtures need upgrades (and a few need to be added), and we'd need to install ceiling fans, along with all the painting that needs to be done, the house is in really decent shape. I was surprised at how clean all the carpets are and at all the yard space the house comes with. There are still a few questions that I've e-mailed to the Community Home Trust people, but I've asked to put a reserve on the house (since I'm the first one on the wait list and I don't want anyone to take it from me), so this may just be my future home!
|On a more random note, WTH is a "lilduval"?|
Saturday night I followed the home awesomeness with some hockey awesomeness. Nicole and Mike, whom I met in February at the Myrtle Beach marathon (through Alyssa), invited me to a Hurricanes game. It was a great time, although there weren't enough fights for my liking. Perhaps the best part was during the breaks, about 10 random mascots came out onto the ice and it was comedy gold. During the first break they played a very short hockey game, and during the second break it was musical chairs...with three chairs. Nothing is funnier than a bunch of people dressed in huge costumes falling all over the ice. I promise you.
|aaaand...cue hilarious laughter.|
The best comment of the night goes to Nicole, who wondered, "Do you think, at the end of the night, they all take their heads off and have a drink?"
I bet they do.
Sunday started off pretty lame, but then I realized...I need to start packing! And then I started panicking, which sounds almost the same, but it's not. I went to town on my closet and dresser, and the result?
|Goodwill is getting a ton of my amazing castaways, including a couple swimsuits|
from when I was on the swim team in high school. I'm so awesome.
|That's ten years of cell phone gold right there. Now, what to do with them?|
Have you saved "mementos" thinking you may want them someday? (No, that's not why I saved the phones. I just don't know how to clear them so some evil genius can't hack into them and steal my identity.
Have you ever dressed as a mascot? I want to know what it's like in there.
Do you know what a "lilduval" is?
