My weekend, on a scale from 1 – 10

Well, out of respect for Nomar, I really should give it a 5 however, trying to be the optimist that I like to be, I’m going to give it an 8 (hmmm, that’s his new number with the Cubs!)!

On Saturday morning, as we continued to work on the criss crosses on the windows, getting ready for painting, I was suddenly stung by a bee on my hand. Having no experience with bee stings, I had no idea what to expect. Within just a short period, my left hand began to swell up as though I had just punched a wall! I called the Winchester Hospital to be sure this was normal and they said that swelling is to be expected, I should keep plenty of ice on it, and watch for signs of an allergic reaction (rash, closing of throat, etc). Good news…. no allergic reaction and my hand was back to normal in just a few days!

Later that day, I heard the sad news that my favorite Red Sox player, Nomar Garciaparra, was traded to the Chicago Cubs. This didn’t come as a total surprise, as there’s been talk of a trade since before the season even started. However, the reality of seeing him in a Cubs uniform on Sunday was very depressing – there’s just something not right about that!!!!! Oh, well, life goes on! I still love ya, Nomar!

On Sunday, we managed to finish up the bulk of the preperation of the windows (what a relief – what will we do with all our time now???) and it couldn’t have been more timely as that night, the painters came by and did a walk around of the house and we gave him the info on the paint colors, etc! He’d said they’d start either Monday or, more likely, Tuesday. They didn’t show up yesterday so now the anticipation of seeing what my house is going to look like when I get home is killing me! Soooo exciting!

So all in all, it was a pretty good weekend! Stay tuned for updates on the house!
