what has been going on lately? well, last week, i found out that i had to travel to the east coast for work. things have been nuts at work, so i’m trying to wrap up so that i can fly out. tickets are purchased, hotels are reserved, and i’m all set to go.
i get out to the east coast for what was supposed to be a two day trip (1 day travel, do the meeting and fly back that night). what ends up happening though is that the meeting gets postponed and we miss our flight back. so we book for the next day and i swear, i don’t know why, but after leaving the hotel a little before 8AM, i don’t set foot back into my apartment until 6PM. flying back to the west coast isn’t supposed to take this long!
the trip went well, the east coast is ridiculously cold. it snowed while i was there. brrrrr. cold. what possesses people to live in that kind of a climate, i just don’t know. seriously. what is the deal? i know, i know, i’m a big wimp, but i’ve been spoiled with california weather. i take it for granted sometimes, but it is trips like this that really make me appreciate what i have.
speaking of things that i have, what i don’t have anymore is money. yeah, christi and i made an offer to buy a house and with that offer, we put 3% down. i wrote the check for the 3% down and let me tell you. that is the biggest check i’ve ever written in my life.
i told christi that it was only after having met her have i ever written checks in the five digits before. she is an expensive girl! heh, i jest. i’m not sure what’s going to happen with the offer, but i’m hoping for good things!
we’ve finished up our marriage prep for the church so i think we’re all squared away there.
so let’s see, job, house, wedding…what else is there to talk about? oh yeah, i’ve caught up on all the tv that i’ve been missing and i now have nothing to watch. isn’t that amazing? nothing to watch at all. that’s just dreadful. i’ve even gone as far as to start watching BRITISH tv shows. that just goes to show you my level of desperation for some tv content.
so after being so busy for so long, i still have another business trip coming up at the end of the month. sheesh. all this hard word better pay off! i’m starting to get tired.
