Home Sick

Today I stayed home from work sick. For fear of getting my co-workers sick, I was told to stay home! Instead of getting them all sick (if I haven't already) I get to stay home and get Chelsea sick! jk....I hope. After spending 2 hours this morning "working from home" I was finally told by my manager (by phone) to rest. After that I pretty much did just that. I slept till like 2pm! After that I got really bored....After reading every article on ESPN and watching Sportcenter replay itself a few times I asked Chelsea if she wanted to play a board game. We decided to play monopoly.

We haven't played monopoly for quite some time. A few years back, right after we got married, we pulled the board game out. 15 minutes later I had all my properties mortgaged and Chelsea grinning ear to ear. She destroyed me. It was by far the fastest slaughter in history! For fear that this game could destroy the fragile roots of early newly wed life, we put the game aside. 3 years later I dared pull it out. Man I am glad I did! I think this photo sums it all up:

Chelsea got the dreaded "take a stroll on the boardwalk"

As you can see from the picture, there's a beautifully looking, very well constructed, hotel built by yours truly. What did it cost her? $2000.00 (the game). Redemption! We'll have to pull this game out more often!

Monopoly champions must run in the family -- I trample Blake every time we play.
