Notes from suburbia

I've been incommunicado for a few weeks because it took us forever to get Internet access at the house.  It involved three different Comcast guys (and three different days with my sweetie at home for no reason--OK, at least the last day there was a reason).  The last guy arrived on a Sunday and was the only competent guy we saw.  Clearly he works on Sundays dealing with the customers who have been driven to the breaking point during the week.  Anyway, here are some notes from the intervening weeks.

Here we are in front of the new house, wearing our WaMu "Whoohoo!" shirts.  At the time we took this picture, it was already a little sarcastic.  At this point it's just sad.  If you're wondering, my sweetie still has a job, and we still have the house.  We shall see how long this lasts.  Marriage has been a very interesting journey so far.

My second baby surprise jacket.  I love the little fish buttons!  The second time around, this pattern still has not lost its charm.  It's fun to knit, and it's so cute!

Our brand new living room chair, which I love.  I love the cool almost mod pattern!  I love the cool pastel-yet-bright colors!  I got this chair by spending two hours in the store with my sweetie, after which he said, "OK, whatever fabric you want.  As long as we can leave."

And, finally, our new couch!!  I love this couch, and it has a great story behind it, too, which I will share in another post.

That's enough catchup for now!

What's up with the weird label tag, chickie?

And d'ya wanna trade your WaMu shirt for my Arthur Andersen shirt? ;-P

I don't know! On my editing screen, it isn't there, so I don't know where it came from. Stupid Blogger.

I cannot compete with your collection of failed company paraphrenalia, so I won't even try.

I love this sweater! I suppose I said that in the Thak YOu note, but I show this sweater to anyone who has the remotest insterest. I love it!

Speaking of failed companies, can I interest you in some Nationwide Cellular stuff? MRC? Derlan? QVC Publishing? No? I guess Readers Digest is just lucky I'm leaving. They may escape my curse.

Beautiful house, sweater, chair and couch. Home-owners are not so bad either. LQ
