Still alive!

I got this picture in an e-mail the other day from a guy Phil and I play DAoC with. The e-mail mentioned that if you see something like this, that it's often a sign that it's going to be a bad day.

I got a kick out of it.

So Thursday, our loan guy comes over so we can sign papers for our loan. I'm quite excited to have that all over and done with, so I can concentrate on the bigger stuff. Like packing and cleaning and throwing things out that we're not going to need.

It seems like such a long ways off, I just want to skip over the months and have it be here already. I have a tentative leave date in mind of June 20th, and I suppose that could change depending on what goes on. I would love to leave earlier but the school district calendar shows the last day of school as the 15th, and I think we have a couple of snow days to add on to that. I don't really want to have to take Seb out of school until it's over if I can help it, but we'll see.

As far as the new place goes, we had the inspection done, and we've sent over an inspection notice to the seller in hopes that she will be willing to repair or help us out with some of the things in the place that need some love. A few windows need to be replaced. The hot water tank is almost as old as dirt and I would like to have it replaced so I don't have to worry about it...the roof could use some love, etc.

Not sure what she will think about all of the stuff but I guess we'll see. Hopefully she doesn't come back with a "screw you guys" because although I really want some of these things taken care of, I don't want her taking her ball and going home either. It's a pretty fine line, I guess.

I was able to track down Annie, who is my partner in crime from high school. Turns out, they're looking to move to the same area we are, at pretty much the same exact time. When I found that out, the hair on my arms stood straight up, hehe.

This means we'll be within blocks of one another so we can get together and knit. To be honest, it seemed that all either of us really gave a shit about was that we would be a block away from an espresso stand. With the two of us, give us coffee and everything else will just fall into place.

Our kids will be able to play together. I think about this and I realize that this could be a good thing or a very bad thing. lol.

So I've tracked down Andrea and Annie so far. Haven't found Bill or Herbie yet, but I figure that they'll show up eventually. They always manage to, somehow.

I'm recovering from a bit of a cold. Think I might actually have a sinus infection. I'm not too terribly concerned because I'm too busy being happy about the fact that this is the first cold in like, 15 years, that didn't go to my chest first thing. In fact, it never hit my chest at all. Amazing what happens when you quit smoking!

Well, I'm outta here. I have some mental packing to do (packing boxes aren't here, yet) and Seb has a dentist appt tonight.

Catch ya later!!

Look! I got a blogger account, finally!

You're right, once there's coffee, everything else just works itself out. I can't wait to hang out with you again!
