Paint Party!!!

I know you all are super pumped for the awesome paint part that will be taking place MAY 12TH!!! do not miss out! we will have an exciting round of "tape off the trim" followed by a short break, and then we'll roll it all on. Then we'll buy everyone pizza.

Sound too good to be true? well it's not. I swear it's for real.

Seriously, though, any help you can muster up would be appreciated. we're gonna be painting our entire house (inside, not outside) and pretty much just have the one weekend to do it all in, so we'll need LOTS of friend power.

disclaimer: this party will not be taking place if for any reason the sale of the house falls through

Grass and Hail

or is it Hale... probably Hale, but now that it says Grass and Hail, i think that could be something symbolic and meaningful, so I can't go change it now. heh...

so it haled and snowed last night, and now it's raining. So weird... i don't mind it, b/c i know it'll all be melted in a few days. It reminds me of colorado snow, when colorado snows in march. It's pretty much gone already, so hopefully it'll be sunshiney tomorrow or the next day.

Also, we dug up some dead yellow grass that duke killed and replaced it with seed. there were a lot of places that had to be replaced. hopefully duke stops peeing soon so we don't have to replace any more grass before we leave. probably not gonna happen. It's a lot of work to replace grass. You have to dig out all the dead grass, loosen up the top 2-3 inches of soil, and then spread the seed and water it about 2x a day for 2 weeks. suck... oh well.

other than that, I just can't wait to close on the house... i can't believe we've got another full month before we get to start moving. once I get a free minute or two, we should really start packing up our stuff and getting it ready to move over.

Other than that, I had a paper on this book called, "No contest" due today. It's an interesting book. the main point is that americans compete too much and that if we eliminated that sense of competition, we would be a better society. it's very idealistic, and more than slightly socialistic... but interesting none the less. We apparently have a created scarcity in our society. We are always trying to be the best, when we really can just concentrate on being good. It's hard to explain, but before i read the book, i thought it would be interesting and have a lot of good points... i guess i thought I would be in favor of what is presented in the book... but after reading it and how poorly the auther supports his views, I feel more republican than ever. No more taxes!!! (heh...ahem...)

Maybe this post really is about grass and hail...

Promises, Promises...

Ok, so every week may be a bit too ambitious for me, especially since i don't really have anything interesting to write about....

I've been planning Meryl's baby shower for the past little while now. Sent out invitations and all. The thing is, the RSVP number I put on the invitation is my home number, which we have disconnected, so I hope everyone is coming... heh... oh well. Other than that, we've got everything ready. I've got food and... food... and games and it'll be pretty fun. Tomorrow (Saturday) at 1 at my house, for those of you who don't know.

So... I'm still at work. I did a bunch of homework today. that was good. It's always a good feeling when you catch up or actually stay ahead of all the work that there is to do.

Other than that, i really have nothing to say. I apologize for being so boring. Maybe I'll write a little about the shower tomorrow. :)
