The Stress!

I have been sadly absent from writing. Its a shame, because writing is one of those things that calms me. Its been a very stressful few weeks. The end of the semester meant a huge influx of assignments and studying. My orientation into the respiratory therapy program...

And Your Change is $6.66…

The minute I heard the words "And, your change is $6.66." I knew it was going to be a rough day. I'm not normally an overly superstitious person, but I just had a feeling it would be one of those days. I was supposed to take an exam in A&P today, but I left after...

Packing Up

Image Source I was up later last night than I had planned on. I finally found a good boost of energy and managed to get a lot of the spare room cleared out. I packed about three boxes and threw out about six bags of stuff. It feels good to purge yourself of things. By...

Crazy Days & an iPod

The last few weeks have been insane. I'm finishing up on fall semester at school, Ross and I are moving in together in less than a month, Mom is moving in with Mark before the end of the month, Angel just moved to a new place a few weeks ago, and there has been baby...

How do you tell someone they are a pain in the ass?

Image Source I'm so fricken' bored! I had another scheduling issue with Mom and had to get dropped off at school at 8:30 in the morning. The school is having a high school "knowledge bowl" and the place is crawling with teens. I've abandoned the idea of trying to get...

The Home Inspection & Alienware

Image Source Today was the house inspection. The only issue we have to worry about is the furnace. It appears to the inspector that it just needs a good cleaning, but he is concerned about a large "rust bubble" that he couldn't get a good look at inside. We are having...

We Have a Home!

Image Source Our offer was accepted. We've found the house! Its a nice bi-level with huge rooms and a well-landscaped yard. The yard even has a grill and smokehouse all ready to go. I can't wait to get moved and start enjoying home...

More on the House Hunt

Ross and I will be continuing the house hunt this weekend. He has a long weekend for the holiday, so we are taking advantage of it. We are looking at three houses each on Friday and Saturday. Many of the houses have some nice features, but I'm still pretty sold on the...

The House Viewing Begins

Ross and I looked at our first property Sunday. Its a bit out in the country, which is nice but will be bad for driving to work and school. The house appeared small from the front, but once we walked in and started looking around we realized how large it really is....

Finding Ourselves a Home

Ross got pre-approved today for the house loan. I told him he would be surprised how much they would approve him for, but even I was surprised how high they approved him for... about twice what I expected. Of course, we're still keeping our cost low and not pushing...

Late Night Homework, Moving My Sister & Mom’s Health

Image Source I was up late last night working on assignments. They aren't due for a month, but part of the assignments includes a comprehensive paper on what kind of opinions a specific foreign culture has about the United States. It will require a lot of research, so...

Apology & Stuff

I apologize for the early morning rant. I was a bit cranky, I guess. I just have certain members of the family that can get pretty frustrating. The weather is finally warming up here and I've had the windows open for a few hours every day. I'm wearing sweatshirts and...

Stinky Cigars & Cat Piss

Wow. I really haven't written in a long time. Its not that I've been too busy. I'm not any busier than usual. I just haven't felt like writing. I've been studying, enjoying the warmer weather, house-hunting with Ross, and just keeping occupied. Nothing really exciting...

My Sister’s New Place

I got to see my sister's new house this weekend. Its a very cool quad-level arrangement. You enter at the kitchen. If you go up a few steps you're in the living room. Up a few more and you're in the master suite. If you're back at the kitchen/ dining level and go down...

February Family Poker Night

Image Source We had our February family Poker party last night. It was also our friend Carol's 69th birthday, so we got to enjoy a very tasty collection of cakes and met some of the residents in her building. I played and ate responsibly, so I kept my money and weight...
