    I've got a fun-filled day today. I currently have 2 loads of laundry in the dryer. Always exciting! Also, I have an appointment with my realtor to revisit 2 places I saw last weekend. Both are on the same block and are about the same size, but there's a roughly $10K difference in price.

    Cupid.
    His birthday is Feb. 9th and I already did something special for him this week. We decided early on in our relationship that 2 'events' in the same week wasn't necessary. I am taking him to the ballet with me tonight. I'm not sure he looks at it as a present though. To be fair, I only drag him with me once every 3 years or so (I'm a longtime subscriber to the Boston Ballet.)

    I watched 'Mamma Mia' last night. There's an Australian girl who plays one of the bridesmaids who spends the first half of the movie in a Duke t-shirt! It's an artfully ripped (Flashdance style) t-shirt, but still, great big grinning Blue Devil on her belly and DUKE clearly visible. It does make me wonder why.

    Cool! Was this the movie or the live version? I haven't seen either.

    I'm hoping that we watch the movie at the next Girls Night. The t-shirt is in the movie. I've seen the touring company twice. The second times was great - we actually had our own row of dancing queens* in front of us. At the end of the stage play, they come out and sing and the audience dances along. The row in front of us had all the moves down for Dancing Queen.

    *Can I say this?

    Swan Lake?

    Wang Center?

    The only ballet I've seen outside of the Nutcracker.

    Phenomenal performance in a fabulous theatre.

    Thanks! I'll be prepared this time: I have a tape measure to see if my living room furniture will fit in the appropriate space.

    Wang Center - yes, Swan Lake - no. He hates the story ballets. These are some shorter more recently choreographed pieces.

    These days, having a job is indeed a blessing. I keep repeating that to myself as I spend my weekend getting caught up on work! Hope your weekend isn't too busy, DD.

    I have found the place I'm going to make an offer on. It wasn't the place I liked the most last week. After looking again, I saw signs of water damage (bad for someone with mold allergies) and some other maintenance issues. The place I decided on is newly remodeled and has lots of closets. It also has a bonus room that can be used as an office. The only down side is a smallish kitchen, but it's still bigger than my current kitchen. Ironically, it was also the cheapest of my finalists! Now I just have to get the ball rolling - here's hoping I can get a good deal on a loan!
