Please forgive my lack of blogging. I have been a busy girl! And I'm about to get even busier!
Had a great weekend... didn't take pictures, shame on me. I watched the fireworks from the foot of the Washington Monument - I got one picture of fireworks that wasn't too bad - but it's difficult with a point & shoot digital camera to get a good photo of fireworks, ya know? Add that to my list of reasons I really, really wish I had a Digital SLR. One can only dream...
If I would have taken pictures this weekend, here are a couple of things I would have taken pictures of:
1. Jessi!!! It was so great to see this girl, and two days in a row!?! What a treat.
2. The steak & shrimp at Wes & Maggie's cookout. Divine!
3. My little patriotic creation I took to the cookout. Graham crackers, topped with cheesecake filling with blueberries & strawberries on top - cute and a huge hit!
I **may** be moving next weekend. Jury's still out on that. I need prayer, my friends. The tenant is moving out of the house that I own in Chesapeake - and if I don't secure someone new to rent the house to by the end of the week... my little apartment upgrade will be nixed! If you know anyone who wants to rent a little house with 2+ bedrooms, stainless steel appliances and a fenced in back yard within the next oh, week - LET ME KNOW! I could supply you with pictures - it's an adorable place and looking back at pictures this weekend made me actually miss my little home.
I was moving furniture around in my shoebox of an apartment this weekend and decided to re-arrange. (The only person who will not think I'm a lunatic for doing this will be my MOTHER because she would totally do the same thing) I found a set-up that allows me to watch TV from my bed (didn't realize how much I miss this) but a lot of sunlight comes in my face (can be difficult sleeping during the day). Not a bad back-up plan... but...
I BROKE MY TELEVISION!
Yep. Incredible Hulk here pulled the entire cable outlet OUT OF THE TV. Uh huh. Don't mess with me! Long story short - here are my options:
Hope the cable guy can fix it (stretch/a week away).
Get my other TV that is currently being stored (and used) from my Mom's house. (but it is smaller and that's a two week wait)
-Also, that would defeat my master plan of watching TV in bed because then I would only have one TV and it would end up in the living room!
SO BASICALLY RIGHT NOW I'M A TELEVISION NEWS PRODUCER WITHOUT A TELEVISION.
I pretty much feel like a poser. Like I'm disconnected from the world. Weird!! I don't even watch that much TV - just news, really. I won't be missing things like The Bachelor or worrying about people winning big on that show with bald Howie Mandel. Don't really care about all of that - BUT I am used to watching all 3 network newscasts each night and re-plays of GMA, Today and re-runs of Gilmore Girls when I get home in the mornings.
Sigh. At least I have all of the seasons of GG's on DVD. Ironically, they helped me get through the silence and lack of television when I moved into my little house - for the week or so until that cable guy came.
