Cracks in the wall!

My apartment seems to be falling down around me. I'm hoping there was maintenance work going on above me that caused the loud noise and cracks in the wall, but who knows. Maybe they are just heavy walkers! I have notified the front office and have yet to receive a response. I will not be paying for this when I leave!!

Washington Nationals

I was quite the baseball groupie this summer! But, I would like to say for the record I was a Nats fan when they were losing so I did not jump on the bandwagon when they started winning, but I'm glad people are realizing what a fun experience Nats park is! I could do without the metro ride into DC, but it's all worth the experience!!

The Nats won the National League East Division Championship and I was there to see it all go down! It was so exciting and there were fireworks!

 ...and lots and lots of champaign!

I know this is an old picture, but even Nick Lachey loves the Nats!

This could be my letter ...

I'm pretty sure this was written by the old resident of my apartment and I inherited the loud neighbor! All of the below is totally true for the residents upstairs! and I'm super jealous of the mini pony they have living with them.

The Gym

I don't even know where to start.

Quick backstory: There is a guy, Ron, I went to high school who lives pretty close to me in Fairfax. It's kind of strange that we both ended up here so over the last few months I have seen him a lot of him. At our 10 year reunion (4 years ago!!) he was married so when he facebook messaged me to get togheter for coffee and "relive our high school years" I didn't think much of it. I figured he was (still) married. We went for coffee and he brought me chocolate which was a little awkward and there was no wedding ring, but whatever. Over the last few months, he has messaged me and invited me to events. There has been no mention of the wife. A few weeks ago we realized we go to the same gym and I mentioned that I go to a cycling class on Thursday nights (I go other nights, but luckily he only comes to the Thursday night one). He has been at every Thursday night cycling class since I mentioned it to him.

Well tonight it went down in cycling class!

Class stated at 7pm, so we get in, set up our bikes and start warming up and make small talk. The class isn't very full tonight, only a few brave souls in class. About 30 minutes into class the door to the classroom swings open and in walks this lady in jeans and a polo shirt. The door shuts and locks behind her and she walks over to Ron, picks up his towel off his bike handle and throws it in his face, makes a hand jester that he is cut off, stares him down and then turns and walks out of the classroom and stands outside the door. However, the door is glass so we can all see she is standing there. He does not move from his bike. She makes some more jesters and he keeps pedaling. She then opens the door, walks in, stands at the door and makes more jesters that he has got to go. I turn to him, turn back to her, back to him, to the teacher. Everyone is just pedaling away, not sure what is going on. He finally gets off his bike, leaves his towel and walks out of class.

The teacher then says ... I'm not even going to ask.

Embarrassing for me because the teacher knows that I know him, so I am now responsible for bringing the crazy to class.

So, is it is disgruntled wife? I have no idea. I'm hoping for a Facebook message. I will check-in in a few days and make sure he is still alive! I will keep you posted on his (and her) whereabouts!

Bachelorette ...

I love this season. Love.Love.Love.


I love it so much that I am not reading the spoiliers. So, if you are, don't spoil it!! K?

My final four: Arie, Sean, Jef, and ?!? The 4th one is hard!!! Travis? I have a bad feeling it's Ryan, but I don't want to believe it.

"Winner": Arie.

Together: 1 year!

PS. I love Travis ... the egg boy. Is Alejandro really a "mushroom" farmer from San Francisco? I cannot. Why is Ryan such a creep. Down to 8!

working my charm

It's nice to know I haven't lost my charm. I got a note saying that maintenance was coming around to change the filters, check smoke detectors, etc. Since it was Thursday, I knew I would be home and was hoping to talk to them about my dryer. Basically:  My dryer is LOUD!

So, the maintenance guys rolls in around 4:30 and Freddy starts changing the filter for the air conditioning. I begin to explain about the dryer making the loudest noise ever and Freddy sends Javier in to check it out. Javier takes one look at it and says, oh let's just get you a new dryer ... and we will replace the washer too!

YES! Thanks Freddy and Javi!!! Nice to know maintenance guys still love me!!!
