Ridiculous Idea of The Day

I fully intended to post pictures of the girls in their Halloween outfits with their tiny pumpkins...and even have the pictures ready to upload...I just haven't gotten around to it yet. But I think I probably will, maybe. Hopefully sometime before Thanksgiving;-)

Let's see...Munchkin's last soccer game is tomorrow afternoon, so I am gonna try and take the girls to watch. Smoking Hot Roommate should come with, shouldn't she? Yea, see, everyone raised their hands, so it is unanimous...

Sometime within the last week, The Boy got it into his head that he really wants to build a house in the Virgin Islands. I have no idea where this came from, but I do know that it has evolved mightily within that week from "Hey, you can buy an oceanfront lot in St. Croix for like $125,000" into something substantially larger and more expensive. I suppose the good news is that the more expensive it gets, the more outrageous it gets, and therefore the less likely that I really legitimately have to talk him out of this.

Because, for real, it is a terrible idea, right? I can rattle off at least a dozen reasons why. But there is at least 2% of me that would have a hard time saying no to that;-)

Also...election day...anyone have any thoughts?

I don't know...I just saw a Househunters last night where the lady bought a waterfront condo on St. Thomas for like $250k and it looked like a pretty good idea to me!

My first day-after-election-day thought: no more commercials and phone calls!

My second day-after-election-day-thought: probably shouldn't have come home from the 'brary and went right to sleep. I have a lot to catch up on!

Dozen reasons why it's a bad idea or not...a house in the Virgin Islands is an awfully fun thing to dream about, at the very least!

You got married!!! I've been gone a looooooooooong time! I need to read and catch up on your life. I also need to start up a blog again. Congrats to you Mrs. Boy!!!

Jordan! Where have you been? Other than, of course, in Cindy's pictures...

Married, yes, but that is a pretty small change compared to the rest of the chaos around here:-)

My cousins just brought property in St. Thomas. Little did they know it was on a steep incline. They are still determined to build a house there someday!

Pinksundrops - Had your cousin ever been to St. Thomas? There isn't more than 10 square feet of flat ground on the whole island!!!! Everything is on a steep incline...the good news being that everything has spectacular views of the ocean and the islands:-)
