I've been outvoted. Looks like we're staying and I've wasted a week.

Crazy, but that's how it goes.

Just going to start this post by saying that it's freaking cold in here.  The hole in the wall is still not fixed, not looking like it'll get fixed for another month.

Did you hear it's gonna be 20f next week? (Though, that was just on the radio, the internet says 40's.) Yes, that's right. Below freezing.

Anyway. We found two apartments we like, and more or less chose one. It's a three bedroom, so I can have my business out of the home, and it's got an indoor pool. The only thing we didn't like about it was the pet policy. Oh, did I mention the indoor pool is less than 10ft away from the back door of the place we'd be getting? (Did I also mention that working out at a gym sucks for me and swimming is so much more healthy?)

We can sign the papers tomorrow, Move the bed and stuff in on Saturday (If my dear friend with a truck is free), and then Chad can go to work Monday thru Friday and I'll see if my dear friend (and her truck) are free all week to help me move boxes and such. (Dear Friend, I will pay you in tea, and booze, and pizza, and home cooked non-vegan food, and lots and lots of love. <3 )
 But Chad's being slow to decide. He's thinking we should wait a month, move in in January. But he wants out of this apartment. But he hates rushing, esp with all our finances. We can afford it easy.(Well, not easy, but still)

But here's my thought:

What do we lose by not buying now? "THE F*CKING SALE" "MY F*CKING MIND" are the two answers that come to mind.

I spent all of my time the last week looking up apartments in the area. I am the one that did all the homework, called all the places, got the headaches. I am the one that has to give up business growth in order to further personal and family growth.

But I see that staying until we hear from Nvidia might not be too bad. Other than the hole in the wall. And the crappy landlord.

Also, Why is it that my mother-in-law has to doubt everything I research?  In other news, lately my mother-in-law's voice has been giving me headaches. Not sure why...


That's my problems for the day.

Rock shows, Homeless people, and apartment hunting

Hey all. I know, it's been a while. Again.

So, I just want to say that I went to Lauren's (lalalalauren) solo show tonight, and it rocked. Yes, I'm a groupie, so I'm bias, but still, I felt it was a great show and a wonderful start to a solo career. I filmed 90% of it on her camera, so keep your eyes on her blog the next few days and you should see some awesome songs.

After the show, we were standing outside saying goodbye -We didn't know there was a cover to see the band Lauren opened for, and we didn't have any cash on us. I felt kinda bad, cause we bailed on the other band, but they didn't exactly advertise. I mean, if we had to buy $3-5 worth of drinks at the bar, that would be one thing, but still. - Anyway, we were outside and this really loud black (Yes, racist. I know. But my Uncles are black, so lay off me.) gentleman comes across the street toward us. The closer he got, the more I could smell booze, and smoke. He starts to walk past us, with a cheerful 'Hello', so I'm like, ok, this is just a harmless bum, lets move along. But then he turns and starts talking. And talking, and talking and talking. Chad is grinning, Lauren is all freaking out (you were, don't lie.), and Ryan has his "you're a freak but I pity you so here's a fake smile." look on his face. So the guy, who called himself 'Floyd', was pretty much picking on Ryan, since Ryan kept edging away from him. Lauren's trying to get back inside and bring Ryan with her, but then Floyd steps up toward Lauren, who takes three steps back.

Which causes Floyd to start in on Lauren. Go figure. But we get Lauren and Ryan inside. And then what does my Husband do?

He talks to the guy. And they talk and talk and talk and talk.

Finally we get away, but it was interesting to hear the drunk guy talk. Pretty intelligent, but he rambled like no other.

In other news, We're apartment shopping again. The hole in our wall is still there. They just got the insurance lady out to look at it, so hopefully they'll fix it soon. We're still going to move though. 1 bedroom just is not enough space for all our stuff.

So, we're looking at 2 bedrooms. Or 3 bedrooms, if I want to do massage out of our home. Which isn't a bad idea, I just don't foresee getting too many new clients that way. Would save a lot on gas and time though.

Oh, we got a car, for those following that aren't facebook friends. (Which is no one) 05 PT Cruiser.

So yes, busy with apartment shopping and trying to clean the current apartment.

I'll try and post sometime within the next few days. I have a few rants ready to be posted.

Later y'all.

Love ya.

Wow, it's been a while.

Hello my freaky darlings!

Ya, It's been a while. Sorry about that.

So, I'm trying this new program/web-thing called "Write or Die", which is supposed to prompt you to write using flashing red backgrounds and annoying music. The only problem? The first piece of music was "Banana phone", and I got distracted from the distraction while dancing...So far, the only song has been Banana phone....*sigh*

So, life. Ya, it goes. Took our van into the shop yesterday. The Head gasket, as well as everything else, is busted. Power steering, Transmission pan and cover, and a few other things as well. So, this weekend we get to go car shopping. <sarcasm> Yay. </sarcasm> So I get to pull everything out of the van into the living room. I'll keep you updated. Or I'll try.

Oh ya, and a car ran into our apartment last week. There's a nice hole in the wall now, so that part of the living/dining room can't be used right now, in case someone wants to come look at it. So, my messy living room is getting all the crap from the van piled onto it. Joy. My apartment looks like crap...

What else? Hum...Oh, the business is up and running. It's the shaky run of a newborn horse, but it's still a run. I've got enough to make rent, and that's what matters.

Screen's starting to turn pink again...hum...what to write...

Banana Phone...

Ya, ok, turned it off. I'm done for now. I'll try again tomorrow.
