The weekend, briefly

We had oh so much work to get done this weekend, making sure our old apartment was in perfect shape before we hand over the keys. The downside of brightly colored walls is the number of coats of paint it takes to get them back to white.

We also met up with friends for a pretty intense three team game of Pictionary. Playing drawing games with architects is a bit scary.

And we made time for Sunday brunch in our new kitchen, just the two of us.

We're making progress settling in. We didn't coordinate everything very carefully so we spent the last week without phone service (and I lost my cell phone charger during the move, so I am completely unavailable - it's like being back in the 90s!) or television. It's been kind of relaxing but we're re-joining the rest of the world tomorrow, hopefully, if Verizon wills it.

  9. Wow - that paint roller makes me feel so lazy! I've been promising to paint for the longest time. I hope you get a chance to relax next weekend and start to enjoy the new place. When there's a long list of chores, it can be really hard to pause until it's done!

  11. Pictionary is my FAVORITE game!

    Random question: how did you organize the blogs you read on the right side of your blog? Did you add them one by one from the "following" list on your dashboard? Thanks! :)
