Happy April Fools Day!

This weekend was busy but not too busy. On Friday night and Saturday night I went to a cropping party at my Creative Memories consultant’s house. I had a good time and made great progress on my scrapbooks. I am now currently putting together my Mexico summer pictures. So I am almost caught up. The only bad thing about working on my albums so hard is that I haven’t been making any greeting cards lately. There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. Maybe I should cut back on how many hours I work during the week. But then I wouldn’t have enough money to satisfy my craft needs.

I woke up around 3:30 am on Monday morning because I was having a bad dream. Major was stretched out and hogging a lot of my bed space, the husband was snoring away in the middle of the bed, and when I tried to move my leg, Monkey growled at me. For some reason, I was disappointed that it wasn’t morning yet. Like I was excited to go to work. Maybe it was all a dream.

Last night we had our second playoff game for indoor. We lost. We played the first place team and they were good. They won the division so they are moving up a division. And since we didn’t lose every game, we stay in the same division. That’s fine because playing against good teams will make us better. Although the team we played against last night was good, they didn’t have good sportsmanship. At one point in time, on of their girls got nailed in the face with the ball and she went down. Some of her guy teammates started yelling at her to get up because she was wasting time. They were already up 5-0. I wouldn’t want to play for their team. Our next season starts next week and the husband said he would give it a try. He’ll be playing indoor with me!! I’m hella excited!!!

I found a cool website: www.zillow.com. You just type in your zipcode or address and it tells you what houses are for sale in the area and the estimated value of those houses that are not for sale. Our neighborhood has mostly flat-lined, and maybe gone down a bit. My parents’ neighborhood in Southern California has gone down significantly – about 20%. They should have sold two years ago.

We are moving at the beginning of May to the other side of town. Supposedly that’s the better side of town and right now we live in the gang area. But it’s still perfectly safe. Although I have heard police sirens a lot more often in the past few months.

Our new place is a duplex and we’ll have a bigger kitchen, washer/dryer hookups, and we’ll share a 2-car garage (not attached). We are very sad to leave our place but it’s exciting to move up in the renters’ world. I am starting to look at washers/dryers and the ones I want are very expensive. Hopefully I can convince the husband. He did just get a pretty sweet laptop.

Congrats on the move!

I very much enjoyed my Calypso wash-motion washer. I miss it!

Sumana, I am excited to get a new washer/dryer. We'll hopefully get the most water and energy efficient machines we can afford. The ACEEE has good information on appliances. Although I'm not sure how accurate it is since some of the info they have doesn't correspond with what the manufacturers of those appliances say. I wonder who's right?

Pablo, maybe my mind was playing an April Fool's Day joke on me. Scarry! Or maybe I have a new outlook. This week has been pretty good and work hasn't sucked that much. :)
