Open Houses

Today Ron and I are going to try to make it to 2 student open houses. It's hard to justify going to some and not to others, except for the fact that we have lives of our own. Sometimes students forget about that; they think that once school is out, teachers have nothing to do but start lesson plans for next fall, and scheme up ways to make teenagers' lives miserable. Someday we hope they grow up and aren't so shocked when they run into Ron at the grocery store (buying BEER! Oh NO!).

Next weekend we might actually be able to go to a few more, since we're having an open house of our own. We're supposed to get out of here for a few hours while complete strangers walk through and critique our paint colors, tiling jobs, DVD collection... We're going to have to be mindful of what is hidden in cupboards and drawers as well, since there is always a chance someone will peek to see what kind of space we have (and how organized we are... or aren't). We don't want one of our neighbors finding the penis-shaped bottle opener Ron's sister gave me for part of a wedding shower gift... not that it matters, since hopefully we'll be moving this summer. I guess I just worry too much about what others think! Ha ha... well, maybe not that much since I just advertised the fact on the Internet. Have a nice day.

the ones we went to were nice... but our open house is Saturday the 16th. that's also the day we're going to (later that afternoon) check out a couple houses we're interested in.

oooh i got confused! sorry! i got a lot of packing done this weekend. you guys want to have a garage sale sometime soon!?!?! (that we can tack our stuff onto?)

Mindy said...

we don't have much to warrant a garage sale, but you're welcome to use our driveway anytime (as long as we live here). i'm sure we could come up w/ a few odds and ends to sell... let me know if you're serious and we can throw something together for the next time you're up. what doesn't sell can be given to goodwill.
