And that's putting it mildly. My mom & I spent the day cleaning my room. A total of 28 bags of stuff went to Goodwill. About 5 bags of recycling (mostly paper) went out. 3 bags of garbage. Of the 28 bags that went to Goodwill, 15 of them were books. I probably should have taken the time to pack them all up & cart them to Powell's or something, but in all honesty...I didn't feel like it.
We have a realtor coming to look at the house tomorrow. She specializes in older homes that are sold "as is." Our house was built in 1912 and though it's got good bones needs a lot of TLC. Unfortunately with my dad working more than full time and my mom watching the grandboys 5 days a week; well, it just hasn't been kept up as it should have been. We're hoping she can figure out a decent price to sell it at. There are a lot of yuppy/hippy couples out there who salivate at the thought of rehabbing old houses like this one, so we're pretty optimistic. *crossing fingers*
Tomorrow was supposed to be a vacation day, but it worked out that if I gave up one of my vacation days, my insurance would be good thru the end of next month. Since I'm not an idiot, I said I'd work tomorrow. My last day of work is on Thursday. There are a lot of unknowns, but I KNOW I can't work while we're packing up and stuff. My brain just doesn't work that way. We're stressed out enough as it is. :(
Two my friends gave birth this weekend. I'm so happy for them and admittedly so glad it's not me. I like kids, but never enough to have any. lol. They exhaust me and I so do not have the patience to deal with them. Thank you, but no. :)
I got Netflix on my PS3. Why I waited so long to do it, I'll never know. I've been watching a ridiculous amount of Bollywood movies. I blame Nalini Singh and the Youtube videos she's played. They caught my attention & when I found them on Netflix, I had to watch them. Some of 'em are awful, but there are some that are amazing! I already watch TV with close-captioning on, so I'm used to reading as I'm watching. It's very surreal to be reading the subtitles and then all of a sudden being able to understand full sentences. They throw full English sentences into the dialog. It's very random and immediately switches back to Hindi or Punjabi, but still! lol
I've got an apple pie candle burning. It smells amazing & is making me VERY hungry. :)
Yesterday was...hmm...an exercise in chaos? Yeah, I think that's the best way to describe it. lol. But, I got money which will go in handy. I found this super, amazing, adorable purse that I'm salivating over, but I don't know if I can justify spending that much money. I get 25% off, but that'd still make it about $160 bucks. *sigh* If I'm being practical, I should just put it into savings. *sigh* I don't wanna be practical! *sniffle*
Only four more days of work. I can't quite get my head wrapped around that. It's crazy. I admit, I can't wait to get out of there. The job was stagnating to the point of ridiculous and I just need something new. I was given a questionnaire by HR to fill out. They say it can be anonymous, so I plan on being pretty blunt. Yes, there were good aspects to the job, but in all honesty there were some things that so weren't. So, we'll see what happens.
Have you ever tried to hide "toys" from your mother? Ha! Yeah, that was interesting. lol. Oy.
And with that, I'm off. I went to bed at 7:15 last night and woke up at 8 this morning. I was SO tired. Work last week wasn't very fun. The boys were crazy hyper yesterday. All in all, I just needed the sleep. I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ciao!
