An update on my progress... or lack thereof

It's been a while since I've made an entry, so I thought that I would make one to say that I haven't done much of anything. My internet time became a little too involved in following the "Toddler on a Plane" story... I had to put up a good fight, of course!!

So I've been spending more time doing nothing and less time doing something.

But that's okay because classes start in less than 3 weeks and I will have no life after that. :( I'm taking 11 credits and am working full time. I must really be a glutton for punishment! One of the classes will be taken online, so at least I'll have a little bit of flexibility. That's also my test for how disciplined I can be.

Well, my 160 Gig hard drive is still sitting in it's factory packaging. It's an awfully expensive knick-knack, so I may have to think about doing something with it. My goal is to accomplish #4 this weekend. I swear. Brian will be home, so I'm hoping that we can both motivate each other to get our crap on there.

On the cleaning out Denton house (#12) topic, I have decided to hire professionals for the job. It's been two years since my dad died (2 years on August 5th), and I need to get my ass in gear. It's expensive, but they specialize in hoarders and big messes like that. I'm hoping that I have more success in selling it (the house, not the crap - but I'd like to sell as much as possible, since a lot of it is quality junk... my dad loved ebay!) than Crystal has had with her house in MI. I've been planning on using part of the funds from that for the downpayment for our house in PA.

Yes, in case you didn't know, Brian and I are moving to PA next year so that he can be closer to work. Commuting sucks, and it's taking a toll on both of us. Once he upgrades to Captain, he'll be back on reserve and our QOL will be nil. The good news is that my company has offices in PA, and my boss loves me. Of course, he's going to be pissed when I leave (he told me that I needed to give him 6 months notice), but said that he'll support me in whatever I want to do. He's a good guy. :)

Well, it's getting late and I am super tired. Guess I'm getting old. Thanks for reading!
