most people hate when it rains on the weekend. i do too, most of the time. but this morning i woke up and was cheered to hear pitter pattering on the window. a rainy saturday means i have an excuse to sleep in, stay in my pajamas all day and not wash my hair. which is exactly what i did today. kpr got up and tried to convince me that we should go out for breakfast, but i wasn't going for it. he went off for coffee and i snuggled under the covers for a while longer, vaguely hearing him return, take a bath and then a shower, but mostly trying to soak up all that delicious sleep- mmmm there is nothing like sleeping in sleep- that feeling that you don't have to wake up for anything. kpr is an early riser and cannot understand my love of the sleeping in- he usually tries to talk me out of sleeping in by laying on top of me or pulling all the covers off, but i'll do anythign to take in another half hour or so under the covers in dreamland.
when i finally did wake up and went out into the living room i was pleasantly surprised by the fire going in the fireplace. we're lucky enough to have a working fireplace in our apartment and the first fire of the season is very exciting. its been so chilly recently that a duraflame makes all the difference.
i did some laundry and when i went back down to the basement to switch the loads, i discovered that they had finally replaced the old dryers we had, with two not-so-new, but-not-as-old dryers that work remarkably better. Whoever replaced the dryers also moved my load from the washer to the dryer and i got a free dry! score!
i cleaned all of champ's things and got his little sweatshirt, sweater and fleece ready for the cold weather. i also sat down and mended all those things that needed mending, something that i've been meaning to do for quite sometime. oh and two days ago i sent my grandparents some a pack of notecards in the mail with a little note, instead of sending them flowers- another thing i have been meaning to do for a while.
the rest of the day was spent searching for appliances online, which is hard- i think we really just need to go out and look at stuff and have out measurements and budget in mind and know what brands are best and go from there. kpr has his heart set on an aga or wolf stove, but i really don't think we need to spend that kind of money. i want something that is a good brand, will fit out space constraints, is energy star rated and won't break the bank. i talked to frank the cabinet man today and they are coming out to take measurements next saturday.
talked to dad on the phone today and we're all looking forward to going to vegas for thanksgiving. my folks got paul mccartney tix for the friday after thanksgiving for all of us to go together- my parents, my brother and his wife, the newlyweds, kpr and i, my sister and her bf. should be lots of fun and i'll be off my diet by then so hopefully i can eat whatever i want. it's thunder and lightning right now, we just watched the blockbuster 'air force one' and now i have 'close encounters of third kind' on in the background and i'm wondering how i'm going to convince champ to go outside in the rain (he's such a p*ssy about the rain). kpr is snoring away on the living room floor, which explains why he can get up at the butt crack of dawn with no problem- he falls asleep around 8pm each night.
