As if we weren't doing enough these days (and hence the long media blackout at mashaandjeremy.blogspot.com), we decided to buy a house. We needed some excitement after our recent vacation to a war zone. DC can be a bit of a let-down -- people look at you funny if you wear a flak jacket, and none of the Land Cruisers in Dupont Circle are armored (well, that we know of). And I miss seeing all the M-16s.
We've been looking for the last couple of weeks and finally got an offer accepted on a townhouse in a cute little neighborhood in suburban VA. We'll close on March 26 and then Masha can start decorating, or at least knit a few new area rugs.
