How To Spend Sunday (and Thursday Night and Monday Night)

So, the “He Said” part of this dance card already has his plan for Sunday, and Thursday night and Monday night for the next few months.  A lifelong fan for the NFL, my beautiful bride looks at me in bewilderment as I confidently log my plans onto to our joint Google calendar.  If you are an outsider looking in at an NFL fan, we appear irrational, boring, beer drinking, salty snack loving creatures.  You would be correct.
“She Said” frequently asks throughout a Sunday “when is the game over” and I kindly respond “it’s almost over, but….”  meaning there is another game following that one.  So what’s in it for her?  Free time to spend with Mom…isn’t that a great gift?
See you Sunday (and Thursday night and Monday Night).  Go Seahawks.
 
Monday Night Football came to Gillette Stadium...
 
PS.  Don’t even get me started on my first attempt at Fantasy Football….

Making the Case for Stairs

I don’t know about any of you, but I like tight buns. I like having them too, which is why I love living in a three-story house.
We have many clients who love stairs. They feel as if they’re on top of the world when their homes are up high. I remember shortly after moving in to our home, I sat in the hot tub located on the lower deck of my home with my mom. It was dark outside and the house was lit from within. I looked up at the three levels of my home and said, “Mom, I feel rich.”
I’ve also had dreams of living in a home with many levels and the higher up I climbed, the less “stuff” each space had. I’ve also had dreams of a vast “basement”-type area with what appeared to be hordes of space and so much potential for improvement.
Although I sometimes get winded going up the stairs when hauling up the laundry, I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. I know that walking up stairs helps me to keep my muscles strong and adds to my overall health.
So, how about a nice home with a built-in opportunity for a healthy daily work-out?
