All things electronic are about to be banned from this house! A few weeks ago my ipod broke and died for no reason..... a week ago Nathans laptop broke and died for no reason (he treats it so well and has taken such good care of it) and then today.... my phone broke and died for no reason. I feel so lost i can't communicate with ANYONE! I know its sad that i am this attached to a cell phone but really i feel like i am running around with my head chopped off. So we are no longer allowed to buy electronics. This house has to learn to live without.

Okay, really quickly i just need to put in a plug for PRICELINE! So we are headed to Washington D.C. in less than two weeks! My family rented a house to stay in for the week but we are arriving two days before the family does so we are homeless for two nights. So being on a budget i wasn't exactly sure what to do. I had used the "name your price" gadget on priceline once before and it worked out well but i thought you had to name your price the day of your stay. Well yesterday i found out you can name your price in advance... sweet music to my ears. So today i named my price and wala i got a 31/2 star hotel... a marriott residence inn for $50 bucks a night! It has a free shuttle, a pool, hot tub, a kitchen, living room, and dinning room, a free hot breakfast (not the cheap kind where they put out some muffins and juice, this is the real deal with a chef that makes omelets!), a tennis court, free light dinners (whatever that means), internet services, 2 TVs in the suite, and so much more and all this in Washington D.C.! I was pretty excited about the good deal and then to top it all off i looked up how much it would be to book this hotel through the Marriott website and they are charging $256 for the same room we just got via priceline for $50. I have most certainly been won over by Priceline... i will never use anything else to book hotels!
