my blog, dinner with the fam, & ben’s house

So Ben & I discovered last night (well, Ben discovered) that google blogger is actually word press.. or a mighty close facsimile. Which is probably why this blog is so damn awesome :)

I’m still trying to figure out if there’s a way I can leave myself signed into google blogger permanently (or for a reasonably lengthy amount of time) so I won’t have to re-sign in every time I want to blog something. It just takes away from the immediate gratification.

We had dinner with my aunt & uncle last night in Folsom and Mimi’s. It was nice to go somewhere close to home (for Aunt & Uncle as well as Ben) because it meant we had more time to relax and chat, without an impending drive home to think about. We ended up sitting there for about 2 hours, discussing my Uncle’s computer problems with Ben, plans for Ben’s house, my Uncle’s accounting system, my Aunt’s preschool, etc. I think we covered everyone’s jobs in a solitary evening. It actually came down to Ben & my Uncle offering to trade labor (home improvement/fixing for computer improvement/fixing), which is completely sweet deal! Ben is awesomeness when it comes to computers, but he (and I) are still struggling with the home improvement side of things. It’ll be nice to have a resource around who we can call on when things are above our heads.

Ben’s house closes on April 1st, and he actually gets it on April 6th. We’re so excited. The house doesn’t really *need* work persay, but there are a ton of things that we want to do to it. First thing is ripping out the kid-influenced wall paper from the second bedroom. Ughh.. that’s going to be a project. We have grand plans of getting everything prepped (wallpaper down, walls trimmed w/ paint) before Saturday, and having people over on April 9th for a painting party. Hopefully it all works out.
