Alright, so I’ve made it through my first mortgage payment without the need to go out and sell blood or give hand jobs in the alley, so I think I’m doing pretty well. I’ve been in the house since August 1st so I’m almost two months in. Like a dumbass I decided to sign up for another class this fall. That’s smart to do when you move into a new place you have some major plans for. Of course I didn’t take some lame ass let’s just fill in the answers and be done with it class, I had to take a technical writing class. Even more reason I don’t feel like writing blog entries.
What else have I been doing? Oh yeah, I completely ripped the kitchen out of my house. Currently I do not have anything in my kitchen but a table and my fridge. Everything must go, well except the table, I’ll keep that. I started last weekend with a friend coming up and we ripped out the majority of the cabinets that were in the kitchen, leaving only the set that held the sink in. did I ever mention the sink? It was a single tub white porcelain covered cast iron model with the molded in foot long dish strainers on each side. Well I pulled the rest of everything out on Friday night after work, because that’s what I wanted to do after working all day long. Now I’m faced with a kitchen that needs a paint job, an electrician (coming Monday) and cabinets, countertops and appliances (all in the garage). I probably won’t be back on here for a while now. The only saving grace is that when I’m down it will look a lot better, and I’ll have something new to add to my photos section on my website.
So to recap, I am very tired, very stressed and very sore, not to mention slightly overwhelmed by the amount of things to do. The part I’m looking most forward to is getting the kitchen done, which will be started next weekend around inventory at work. I didn’t mention that, I’ll be at work late Friday and probably a good chunk of Saturday too. I plan on getting as much done Saturday night and Sunday as I can though. The part that overwhelms me is the homework, not sure why my dumbass didn’t wait until the spring semester to sign up for another class. Well, what’s done is done, hopefully I complete and pass the class; oh yeah, then I’m done taking classes unless I decide I want to get another degree. That isn’t happening anytime soon. Now I must go, the couch is calling and I need some more sleep.
