for those of you who caught tonight's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, that was my neighborhood! i actually missed out on a opportunity to participate, which i am still kinda kicking myself for. the Washington chapter of the America Massage Therapy Association, of which i am a member, sent me an email to see if i wanted to volunteer as a massage therapist for the volunteer crew working on the house. however, my license being expired and the hours required during my current work schedule, i couldn't take advantage of it. too bad. it would've been fun to have a part, however small, in something like that. at least you got to see a little bit of my neighborhood!
