and we’re off!

Got the pickup truck packed, our car packed and we’re bringing a ton o’ stuff to the house! Wheee!

keys tonight!

I swear I had planned to write a big long thing today… but then the day just slipped away from me. I have been packing up all our DVDs, books and videogames. Once Shawn gets home from work tonight, we’re filling the car with boxes and then driving off into the sunset to go pick up the keys for our new house. This weekend will be spent cleaning and bringing more boxes and clothes over. All the big stuff should be moved next Friday – we just have to remember to book the truck. Oops.

I am covered in dust and grime from the piles of things we stacked up last year at this time and then never looked at again. But boy do we have a lot of crap around for having spent a year in a basement with 99% of our possessions in storage!

I’m going to need to start a new category for this house thing, since it’s technically not House Hunting any more. Hmm, not sure what to call it.

So, I’m off to get a few more things together for tonight and I will also be bringing my camera with me so that this entire weekend shall be documented!

Sorry for the lack of updates….

one year

One year ago today was the fire.

So much has happened since then.

We were pushed down but we got back up.

And on Friday? WE GET OUR HOUSE!

So, that long rambling post I was thinking about writing all week to express all the despair I was feeling about the fire and the rat bastard landlord? Well, it’s not needed, but I find that I am NOT in despair. I’m actually quite content with the way things turned out.

downloading updates: 43.70 MB of 90.90 MB

Good god. I have this shiny new computer now at work, complete with lovely flat screen monitor, new mouse, new keyboard… and no updates. First the set up took like, 2 hours (due to all this network crap) and now I am downloading all the bloody missing updates. My computer still thinks it’s 1:03 when it’s really 2:03 and it’s throwing me off, yo! Forget about taking lunch.. bah!

Also, even though I managed to put all desktop stuff on my USB key, I didn’t think about the EMAIL ARCHIVES which are all still on my old machine and therefore I HAVE NOTHING THAT I NEED RIGHT NOW! GAH!

I was going to update more than this, but now I am in a worse mood than I was. So there.

because what i needed is another time waster

I just recently joined Facebook, slave to peer pressure that I am. It’s a glorious waste of time and right now it is a novelty and so I care. I am sure in a week’s time I won’t care as much. But it’s been neat finding people that I haven’t seen or heard from in years.

Next Friday is my first day off in a looooong time. The two weeks following that are also time off. I will hopefully be 100% moved into that house by Easter, yo. I can’t wait.

I have nothing else to write. What a bore I am. 😉
