Let Jesus Make You Breakfast

I deliberately did not post last night because I have lately started to fall into a maudlin depression come evening, and I didn't want to whine unnecessarily. However, after sleeping like the dead (and I don't think I moved all night), I feel much better. I'm world-class at feeling sorry for myself when there's nothing to feel sorry for myself about - it's very weird.

I have/had two reviews due this week, and I haven't even listened to one of them (I was the only one willing to try out Bon Jovi's new country/Americana album. Go fig). I finished the other last night, but writing reviews of Merle Haggard is staggeringly easy, even when half the album's old material re-recorded.

Our loan has been approved! We may actually get a contractor here shortly and have a Real House at last! *squeeee!*

I wanted to go back to the Farmer's Market this weekend, but I have to work Saturday morning. Our new systems will be uploaded tonight so we have to have everything done today by three so the system can be cleaned out and ready to change over, then we test it tomorrow. It all seems very easy and straightforward, but I worry because many of my coworkers seem to have trouble shifting grooves. ("No, that can be done this way, ALSO. No, you can't send documents of varying lengths to the mid-speed scanner. No, that doesn't need an exception sheet with it just because it went to the mid-speed scanner. Yes, of course that's a demand package. See? It says "demand" right there. No, attorneys do not always use the correct date of loss - but all the rest of the information is correct, so obviously that's the right claim number!" With all respect to Geico, this job is so easy a cave man could do it... ) Anyway, we shall see how it goes.

Yikes, is it that late already? My, the mornings do rush on...

Hurrah for the loan approval!!

I just have to go and fill out all the forms and settle the interest levels/payments - I'm excited! It's the first such I've ever done (not counting the car, of course); when we bought the house, Mom did all the actual work...

Yay! Congrats!! What are you going to have done to the house?

We're going to close in the carport, which will enlarge the kitchen and give us a DINING ROOM!!! (Wheee!) A major plumbing overhaul is also in line (full copper re-pipe, less whee, but more necessary), and floors (probably painting, as well). Then, depending on what's left, we want to see if we can have them poke a hole in the wall of our bedroom into the attached shed and turn that into a real walk-in closet.

The kitchen and dining room are what I most look forward to, although a closet would be mighty fine. *g*

Re: Ah, the smell of Home Improvement in the morning...
Yep, it's been at least a decade since the last major home improvement, and that's ready to be re-done, as well (the painting!). We need to make a list of all the things we want to show a contractor and see how much it'll add up to... and I can't wait!!! Squee! :-)

Congrats on the loan approval! What's on the agenda for the house? And I'll be curious what you think of the Bon Jovi CD. I wonder if this is a sincere musical thing or a marketing move?

Thanks!!! We have a nice full list - closing in the carport to make our dining room/enlarge the kitchen, kitchen redesign, full copper re-pipe, close in the back porch, and the floors. Then if we can, remodel of the bathrooms and a walk-in closet for our bedroom. Depending on what contractors are willing to do the work for (and with the housing boom in a bust, we might be able to do it well), we'll see what all we can get done!

Re: Bon Jovi. It's a good disc, but it's every bit as country as, oh, Slippery When Wet was. *g* So my guess is that sending it to country music websites is a marketing move. But if you liked old Bon Jovi, then you might like this one. I did. Just as much as I liked Wanted Dead or Alive. *g*
