I could have used a glass of wine yesterday. Red came to mind. I thought of the gentle warmth of the wine taking over me. I like the texture better than the taste. But alas I don't drink wine or really any alcohol. Even when alcohol is offered I only take a few sips. And it has to be girly drinks. Don't like beer or hard liquor. Oddly enough I did like the rum my mother in law brought back from Puerto Rico. Anyway, the thought of wine appeals more to me than the taste does. I am amazed at wine connoisseurs. Wine seems so chic.

It was a crazy work day and I got out late and all I wanted to do was plop on the couch. I just worked straight through without eating lunch. Now we all know that is a bad thing. I am constantly thinking about food. The only movement would be my fingers on the remote controller. And if Niel could do that for me it would great. All my after work activities flew out the window. Cooking, cleaning up, and crafting. Those took a back seat. Tired Ani took over.

Update: Grrrrrr. Life just got even better. Our rent is going up. I like the apartment. It has hard wood floors, it's large, fairly easy commute, and close to our old neighborhoods. We feel settled. But we also have crazy neighbors downstairs, plus two neighbors on our block doing construction meaning it gets loud at times, plus the occasional yucky brown water, and did I mention the crazy neighbors. They are constantly having a leak and of course its our fault. Cause you know we're having a water party upstairs!!! Don't they know we have a pool and go in for dips! I mean come on. Plus they aren't friendly. I guess because of the leak that we cause with our water parties. They aren't clean and don't know how to throw out the trash. We can complain for a lot of things too. But we do not. One of our AC's does not work, in the summer we get ants and in the winter mice. But do we complain! DO WE?!!!! Nope. So I want to move. I've wanted to move for a while. I now just have to convince Niel. We're settle and it would be a pain to have to deal with sleazy realtors and pack up our stuff and get resettled. I really did not want to move till we purchased a house. But I don't know how much I can deal with this. Where's that cheese with my whine. And yes I meant it as a double ha ha. Or at least I tried to.

Yeah I used to think people who drank wine were sophisticated too, then I saw the movie Sideways, and that all changed. That and I found out my boss goes to wine tastings hehe

I haven't seen it yet. I want to though.

I totally know what you mean about plopping on the couch! I'm sorry about your neighbors.

foodiechickie said...

Thank you Jessica:)

Mike said...

Hey there are a few houses up for sale in my neighborhood :-). The neighbor your speaking of downstairs. Is that the one who's always outside smoking?

foodiechickie said...

How much!? Bach no publishing in D.C. Niel won't leave. Waaaah.
Yes that is the one. He smokes cigaretts that remind me of my uncle's.

I love wine. Except Chardonnay. Can't develop a taste for it. Like most sweet drinks too: mint juleps, sidecars, margaritas, daqueries, amaretto stone sours .. lotsa great stuff out there. I hardly ever drink to excess, but I do like al-ki-hal.

I say move! You should totally think about buying a place. Interest rates are still low! :) When we lived in our apartment, the neighbor upstairs left the water running ALL NIGHT in his LOFT and it came down two stories to get to us!!! They never did fix our celing tiles. Probably has mold now. :P We paid way too much for that place and they were total asses when we left ... charged us for FIVE hours of cleaning because there was dust on the top of the doors and I forgot to wipe out the oven. :P

Interest rates are low but real estate is still very high. Doh.

I have a feeling this landlord will try to stiff us on our deposit too. Grr.

Moving is a pain, I totally agree. Isn't it amazing how much stuff we accumulate? Good luck with the new search...at least you're motivated to leave!

foodiechickie said...

Thanks and you sure are right about the accumliation. LOL. Not good. I've been motivated for a while. A bit of my problem is wherever I go some where I always love that place and want to move there.

My whole week has been like that! I can sooooo relate. I don't really drink wine, though, otherwise I could sure use some right now. Good luck with moving. Such a hassle. Ugh.

Thanks Yvett. We're in the early stages. :) Have a good weekend and I hope you feel better!
