they came, my mother and sister, bringing more food in the process. we briefly stopped off at an open house on arlington street (in the heart of porter square, an unit in oxford court), about the same square feet as my place, but $60k more expensive. the real estate agent was somebody i'd seen before back in the days when i was in heavy open house viewing rotation. we were just curious to see what features it had that would warrant such a higher selling price (besides the location). ground floor level (actually partially below ground), two good sized bedrooms, small living room and kitchen and bathroom, a working fireplace, no parking. we also went to crate & barrel on mass ave to see if i could find a good living room rug, but no luck.
back in belmont, i took a two hour nap before waking up to hear my parents arguing with my sister in the living room. we ordered pizza for dinner, afterwards i did some work, before taking the suv back to cambridge (i have to go to rhode island tomorrow morning). sunday night all the parking spaces in front of my house were filled up, i have to drive around two streets down before i found a spot. it's my first time that i wasn't able to find parking right away.
