Since there are certain people who keep whining about updates...here's a quick one to let you know I'm still alive.
We closed on the house...but now there seems to be some sort of mixup on what was required for the loan offer that was made. So, in addition to various other issues, it's adding ever so much joyous drama.
Cox was by today so my house now has phone, cable and Internet. My new number is supposed to be unlisted...so give me your e-mail address if you want it, and maybe I'll give it to you.
I have a new bed, a latex foam matress on a fairly nice (I think) bedframe. I have yet to sleep on it, as 99.9% of my stuff is at the old house. That may change on Super Sunday...don't know yet.
Snow storm put off any moving, and things really aren't cleaned up from my brother, so it'll be a while yet until I get things moved I'm sure.
That's the Reader's digest version...talk to you later!

Really don't know what to say, which nothing short of a miracle as I usually can't be made to shut up.
The house stuff I guess is some sort of coming together. Closing should be sometime by the end of the week. Wee.
Work is getting better...we interviewed a bunch of people for a position today, my first stint on the other side of the table. Very interesting experience...and I think I hit another life stage in doing it. There was a young man who interviewed who was almost exactly like me when I was trying to get a job. Isn't that a life milestone when you're sitting there going "you know...he reminds me of me when I was younger..."? It's like, bleh...I'm not THAT old...I should be like, the age of certain bear-shaped reader before I start whizzing by these things.
Yeah...I think that's all the more I'll make you suffer through for now.

Day 9 of the 2004 experiment and things are going as badly as anticipated, possibly worse.
As that's what I can type without feeling awful...that is all.

Boy, predictions come true! 2004 is off to a royal sucking.
As anyone who still reads this (and I can't think of who would anymore) probably already knows, Ally has decided that she no longer wants to talk to me. I can't even describe how much this sucks but, at the same time, if it's what she feels she has to do...guess there's nothing I can really do about it. The only thing I'm mad about is her continual insistance that I knew what was going on the whole time...and I didn't and still don't. That's really the only thing that pisses me off as most everything else is my fault, though she obviously doesn't care what I say anymore and she still wouldn't believe it even if she did read it...she's formed her opinion and nothing will ever change it. I'll miss her, because she's one of the greatest people I've known...just wasn't meant to be I suppose. Kind of ironic how she always said that she'd never hurt me like some people have and then goes and hurts me this badly...not that she isn't perhaps justisfied, but it's still ironic. Like I said, I'm not mad at her, since she's doing what's best for her in her judgement, but it does suck because I did care about her a lot (whether she believes it or not...which she never seemed to).
This also brings into question how long I'll keep the website going. Ally was heavily involved with this website and I don't know if I can keep it up without the memories hurting. Since I doubt she'll read it anymore and most of the others who come here were friends of hers, they'll probably stop coming too. Seems like a lot of work for a website nobody's going to read.
I was going to type up about all the stuff that went on with the house today, but realizing that probably nobody will read it, why bother? Can barely see the screen at this point anyway. Leave comments if you want.

Yep...it's that time of year again...the beginning.
So, what's 2004 look like? A bunch of junk. I've ceased being optimistic about anything, as it always ends up blowing up in my face. When I have things right in front of me, I'll believe it.
The house is slowly coming along...in the process of getting new applicances now. While the things there work (with the exception of the stove...which really does work but won't clean), I do believe they all came with the house and so haven't been replaced in 14 years. Just seems like you're asking for trouble there. I already have a new washer/dryer (Whirlpool Gold Ultimate II) and today I do believe we're going for a new Maytag stove with ceramic range. While my mother is concerned that if I take the cat, he'll burn himself on the top...I do believe that is a mistake that he would only make once or twice. I was looking at a very nice Kenmore Elite refridgerator, but I don't know if I should really be spending that much. Of course, so far my mom has bought this stuff, so I don't know why I'm saying "I should be spending"...
On the actual house itself, Bank of America has approved my credit (which I hear is the big step in that process) but now I need to get all the forms filled out and get everything ready. The closing date is supposed to be the 13th of January, I don't know.
Eventually, I'm going to have to move my stuff over there, and that's going to suck. On the surface, my room isn't that big...maybe 18'x12' with a lot of it being the bed and walkway space to get to the closet...but it's very layered. I don't think it's going to be all that easy to move most of it. The only thing that I have going for me is that outside of maybe a few shelves and the mattress and such, I don't have that much in the way of big furniture that needs to be moved. Of course, there is the added labor of getting all my brother's stuff out of the way. With the carpet and painters, it's generally consolidated in the middle of rooms, but it still needs to go somewhere.
I have the feeling that I'm being very stupid, but for the past month and a half, that's been my general feeling throughout. I've been extremely moody lately, prone to fits of anger and depression...wish I could get all that worked out as I don't know how much more my stuff can take. Already missing a button on this keyboard as well (two are missing on my old keyboard) and one of my Xbox controllers is starting to come apart (from being bashed into the floor). Everything just seems so overwhelming at the moment that I don't know what to do.
Oh yes...I hate holidays, they always suck and this one was no exception. Hope your holidays went better...because I doubt you'd be reading this if they went much worse.
