Crammed Pack and Busy

The end of May snuck up on me before I realized it. I spent it down in my fiance’s neck of the woods, meeting family, friends, and doing all of the sight seeing. So, I got in Thursday evening and then Friday we hit Universal Studios in Orlando. It was amazing. We explored two of their park areas (not the waterpark, but that’s on the next set of choices in future trips). We did King Kong, Jurassic Park, and spent a ton of time in the Wizarding World and Diagon Alley. Diagon Alley was probably my favorite. read more

Hopes and Dreams

This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I’ve also taken a much needed four day weekend (because why would anyone go in after two days off, work one day, get the next day off, then work the rest of the week)… 4th of July lands on a Tuesday, and I honestly would rather have consecutive days off. So I took monday for myself. Now I’m just kind of doing random things and playing with creative things. read more

Day 19

So some disappointing news, the person who had planned to buy my townhome seems to have backed out. He may change his mind yet if he fails to prove he can’t get the financing and didn’t just get cold feet. Apparently, there was a bit of a snaffu with things and he got frustrated by the whole process. Part of the agreement was a $1000 in earnest money because he needed some skin in the game. He may have to forfeit that and that’s a lot of money to give up. read more

Day 1

For the month of December, I’m aiming to write something small every day. And there is quite a bit to write about with everything going on. Today, I’m super pleased to write that I finally got an offer on my home that’s down south that I’ve been trying to sell for the last two years. The offer came earlier this week, I countered, and then they accepted. We’ll close shortly after the new year, so the start to 2017 is going to be on a really good note. I’m looking forward to not being bound by financial obligations and finally making headway to freeing myself from debt I had to take on from financially irresponsible people. read more
