Two good things have happened so far this weekend: We put our apartment back together (after dismantling it for painting) and, more importantly, the Ohio State Buckeyes beat Michigan in the biggest game in college football. Happily, the two things came together to provide a wonderful opportunity for us to show off our apartment and the new paint job to some of our friends. Now, I have to say that although we put everything back together and it feels more like we are moved there are still a few things that need to be done as far as really being settled in the apartment goes (painting cabinets and doors, hanging pictures, making and hanging curtains) so we’re not going to show you all of the wonderful things we have done just yet, mostly because we still have a few wonderful things left to do. So, let’s get back to the business at hand:
WAY TO GO BUCKEYES!
Everyone pitched in a bit to make this the best football party that we have ever had. Micah and I cleaned and painted the apartment scarlet and gray. Seth and Amy brought their nice big TV. Leavin and Amanda brought pigs-in-blankets. Gina Smith brought all of her OSU decor, her “Best D*** Band in the Land” cd for after-touchdown celebrations, and a lot of her friends. Jim Tressel brought his classiness and genius to the sideline. Troy Smith, Antonio Pittman, and Anthony Gonzales brought their games. Really the only thing that went wrong was the OSU center brought his butterfingers, but something like that can’t keep a good Buckeye team down. We laughed, we cheered, we almost cried (you have to admit there were a few controversial calls there), and in the end we were happy with the results. The Buckeyes remain undefeated and ranked #1 and we have a clean, mostly painted apartment that we got to share with some of our friends.
