We woke up happy this morning and decided to take a ride to Newport. It was snappin' cold and the Del's Frozen Lemonade truck was no where to be found but it was still a great time. We ate at the Blue Plate Diner.

This week I watched Downton Abbey on netflix. Gorgeous. Those dresses. I nearly melted. I read Heartsick by Chelsea Cain. I worked. I talked to my Mama often because she's depressed and frequently miffed with me. She's also acting as my house liaison so I'm depending on her to tell me if there's water damage or lack of insulation and to count electrical outlets. She drives me to Valium like it's her job.

This morning our mortgage broker called at 9am and woke me up which is all right-on because I told him to, however I didn't expect 9am to come so early so I had to stumble around naked looking for a pen and paper, clearing my sleep-paralyzed throat and trying not to sound like I'd been chaining Pall Malls. John and I brought a couple of cakes/breads over to the new neighbors and he bought some sort of alarm clock/iphone port thing at Bed Bath and Beyond. We watched The Kids Are All Right. I didn't like it as much as I wanted to. Halfway through it I was like, "Hey, they were in that other really good movie together!". Meaning Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo were in Blindness which we watched and thoroughly enjoyed probably a year ago. And can I just say, how stankin' pretty is Mark Ruffalo? Almost as pretty as Julianne Moore and her awesome freckled self.

Last Saturday John and I saw The King's Speech which was really good. But I was so tired I actually fell asleep about three quarters of the way through it. Lately I've just been house-hunting and mortgage fretting. Looking up terms like "short sale" and "escrow" and wondering how the hell people can sneer at the proposed damage pets do to a home despite the fact that there are magic marker scrawls and blue shag carpeting in their children's bedrooms.

My latest tattoo. Mama and Daddy's anniversary and a little acorn. Because from tiny acorns grow strongly rooted trees.
