It’s been a pretty interesting couple of months. It started with a very unexpected and last minute move out of the house I’ve been renting for the last 12 years. It was something that we had been planning on doing within the next 6 months because we’re trying to buy a house. But we were planning on doing it on our own terms, not to be pushed into it so suddenly. We had to pack an entire house up, try to find somewhere to move that was pet friendly, and actually move in 30 days. Thankfully, my brother came through with a place to live, and Shereens mom has been looking after our dogs since there’s already 5 cats here. Now we’re just trying to get our mortgage situation re-situated because I went and quit Papa John’s not knowing that they have to have a two year period of employment somewhere to be considered for the loan. So now we’re hoping that Shereen’s credit is good enough to be approved, albeit for probably a smaller amount.Continue reading “And now, a word from our feelings!”
Today is thanksgiving. There are many things I’m thankful for. But i find myself lonelier that normal this year. Perhaps because I was looking forward to Mikayla being with me, and that didn’t actually happen due to some family being in town that she’s never met before. I’m not really upset about it to be honest, because I get to have her on Christmas so it all evens out. Other than that I’m not really sure why. Well, I’m lying i suppose. Perhaps because of the reasons posted in my private blogs… Muuhahaha.
So today my brother and I went to spend the day with my parents. My mom made a delicious thanksgiving meal. Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, biscuits, and stuffing. Of course some pie too. Weeeee!
After the meal we finished watching the lions play a pretty interesting game, and headed up to the hospital to see my grandpa. He’s been ill with pneumonia for several days now, nay a week or so, if not more. It was rather interesting because my grandma (his first wife) died on thanksgiving several years ago. As we were leaving, we ran into a couple of my uncles, my aunt, and my cousin who were all coming to visit him as well. We had a little mini family get together outside his room down by the elevators… Lol
After that we headed back to my parents house and had Pie. I had a slice of apple and pumpkin. Of course with a pleantiful heaping of Cool whip… 🙂 After we ate pie and watched some TV we decided it was time to head back into town.
Once we got into town I stopped at the store to make sure it hadn’t burned down or anything like that. After that we decided to check out the Black Friday lines at the big box stores. Target and Best Buy were both by far the biggest that we saw, although there were a BUNCH of cars at Toys R Us as well. Best buy had people wrapped around the side AND around the back. And this was at like 9pm! CRAZY YO!
After that we headed home, and I rearranged my desk a bit and switched my fish tank to the other side, and put the LCD monitor that my dad wasn’t using anymore on the other side. I had two monitors before but now with this other LCD i don’t have this humongous monitor on my desk anymore, just 2 nice flat screens 🙂
Anyways, I work in the morning so i’m off to bed. TTFN!
