Mainly, The House

I know this blog revolves mostly around me and my thoughts and actions of going to school, with a smattering of other stuff for good measures.  This blog has been great help for me in figuring out what I want to do with my future as it may be.   I have wanted to do a blog for years, started one on livejournal  years ago, but let it go by the wayside.  Started one somewhere else too, but hated the format, can’t remember where it was.  Oh well, I like WordPress and will continue to use hectic.blog for the foreseeable future.  Just wish I could get rid of the WGU widget on the side over =======> but I can’t replace or delete it for some reason and I am too lazy to contact WordPress support.  Oh well.

Today was a great day.  I slept in.  I spent almost all day with Teresa.  We closed on the house, so it belongs to my mother-in-law now and by default its ours, ours I say.

I got my head shaved to #2 again.  I like keeping it short now, go figure.  I totally hated short hair as a kid and now I have them using a razor to shave it.  Since I think I am gonna keep having my head shaved to #2, Teresa has decided she can do the job, so we ordered a razor from smile.amazon.com to do the shaving.

We also decided, since our first house payment isn’t due til July 1, that we are going to buy a new stove, as the old one here is dying a slow painful death.  There is an issue though, we don’t feel comfortable hooking up the electric cord which for some reason comes separate from the electric stove.  So we have a call out to my construction friend (the guy who built our cool new deck) to see if he can recommend a handyman.  Would rather use someone who is recommended than some random person on Angie’s List or online elsewhere.

The next big purchases for this house will be a new washer and new dryer.  Yep, the stacking unit that the landlord bought to replace the old stacking unit sounds like it isn’t gonna last too long either.  And now, its our responsibility.  A responsibility we happily take on.

Also on the list of things we want to do to the house is paint the master bedroom.  Turns out that neither of us likes the colors.  So, said aforementioned handyman might have more than 1 job from us.

There is actually a lot I would like to do to this house.  Hopefully we will be able to it all over time.  Nothing on my wish list is outlandish, just stuff to make it nicer and update it which it desperately needs.

OK, enough about the house.

School starts in 18 days.  Book buying is in 10 days.  I have gotten over them cancelling my refresher English class.  Just hoping nothing else gets cancelled, cuz that would truly suck.  Just getting tired of waiting.  Not anxious, not excited, just bored waiting.
