Yep It’s Monday!

Hey Everybody!

To be very honest, I did nothing all weekend long. My goal was to lounge and do nothing only on Saturday. This was achieved, no problem. Sunday I was supposed to have two softball games, these would be my first in 3 weeks due to my vacation. That got scratched real quick when I woke up to rain, rain, and more rain. ALl of the games were canceled by 9am and I was left with no reason to do anything. Again. haha. πŸ˜€

We all stayed home for the most part. We did focus on trying to get Everett back into his better eating habits. We tried introducing a few more foods and in different ways. He responded fairly well to getting back at it. His fever has finally broke and he is feeling much better.

My boss is off on vacation this week. He is going to help his daughter build a deck or something, and wanted to work on his own house. While we are still at work and expected to work, it just feels a bit more lax. I am ok with that. I ran into a snafu with the printers from the UPS program I was to use for the shipping upgrades, and am now dealing with the fallout. I am basically CC’d on all of the emails being sent from our Purchasing Manager, the Sales rep. I used (and shouldn’t have), and the UPS Rep. I’m just sitting here twiddling my thumbs while the argue about who is going to pay for what and how I did it all wrong haha. Whoops. At the end of the day it isn’t the worst thing in the world. If we have to buy the printers I still have a use for them. If we don’t…then great. It is just very awkward to be a spectator.

I would have had a movie review for you but, it may have been the worst movie I have seen in a long time and I didn’t want to go through the hassle of tearing it down on a Monday haha. It was Singularity if you were wondering. To be short, “Don’t bother!”

I did start watching Community over the weekend and was able to squeeze in about 40 episodes haha. I told you I didn’t do anything! πŸ˜€

I hope you are all having a less awkward Monday than I am haha. I hope to see you back again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€



Moving Forward!

Hey Everyone!

This weekend we went back, yet again to my wife’s grandparent’s house. She had a photo shoot late in the day, so we came up and made a day of it. I made a cost breakdown sheet of the floor plans we were looking at and contacted the sales rep to verify pricing, and time frames. This information was presented to her grandfather, so that we could all be on the same page as to what we were looking for and how much we were willing to potentially spend, or buy.

We are a little uneasy with what comes next. He wants to see if we would be able to get approved for the amount needed on our own, which is what we wanted to avoid if at all possible. Only because we don’t want some unforeseen, bad thing to happen and leave us with two mortgage payments.Β  We would not be able to pay both. The idea is that he is going to deed us the land, gift us $25,000, and he will pay the mortgage if there is any over lap between selling our house and that one being complete. This is all great in theory, I just hope it plays out that way. I’m not a fan of uncertainty, at least not on this scale. We have worked hard to have what we do, and if we were to get stuck with two payments for whatever reason that would ruin us for a while.

On the other hand, if we are unable to get the loan even with all the help he would then resort to putting it down himself and letting us buy it from him. We still would rather this method, but if he wants us to try the other way first we really can’t argue. So it seems like things are moving in the direction that we want them to. I’m not sure of any time frames, but we were told not to wait if we wanted it all to be complete by next winter.

So it begins.

Like I said before, my wife met with her client around sundown for better lighting, and she took some nice engagement photos. We came home right after that and relaxed the rest of the evening.

Sunday was a day of house chores, mainly laundry. I sat down, while folding laundry and watched the Netflix series “Everything Sucks” It was really good! I went in to it not knowing what to expect. I thought that I would turn it off after one episode, instead I watched the whole season haha. There are no super famous actors, which I love, and it tackles some tough issues, that highschoolers are facing today. If you have a chance I would recommend watching it.

Today is the first day back at work since the time change….and it sucks. I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon, but blah for now.

I hope you all had a great weekend, and I’ll see you tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

I’ve Got Nothing.

Hey Everyone!

I really don’t have anything for your entertainment today. 😦

Everett is still sick and has his follow up tonight.

Work is slow.

The weather is better.

Pay day is tomorrow.

I’m leading a boring life today haha.

I hope all are having a great Tuesday and that is it lol.

See ya all again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


Welp, That Happened Again!

Hey Everyone,

I won’t make you guess, I got another sinus infection! I can’t believe it. I really think it is from taking our son to daycare, that is the only thing that has changed in our lives in the past few months. I get sick once or twice every five years, not twice in two months! What the hell? I’m hoping this doesn’t become a regular thing, not only do I have limited time off, it straight up sucks!

That all being said I missedΒ  Monday’s weekend round up , so I ‘ll muddle through it today. I am still feeling like crap and covering for a co-worker so its an early day for me today and tomorrow. Go figure I get sick when the most amount of responsibility is on my shoulders.Β  Well lets start on Friday night. We went to bed and that was the most exciting thing, until about 2 am Saturday morning, you know the day we are taking wedding pictures. I woke up not able to breathe through my nose and with a terrible sore throat, as well as a nice pounding headache. I made sure to try and finish getting some rest, but that didn’t go too well. We finally got the family up and had to get our son ready to go to his grandparents house all day and into the evening. We also had to finish pack up up our photography equipment and get our itineraries straight. To keep it short we were gone on assignment from 10 am until 7 pm. That is a nine hour work day, on a weekend, while sick, no thank you.

I traveled with the groom and his party, while they golfed, and got ready. While I had some time I took a few drone fly overs. I’ll like just this one, but the quality is crappy because it came off of my phone compressed. It will be in HD when we get it ready for them.

There will later be music added with a couple other videos and picture from the weeding added in a nice video/slide show for the bride and groom. I tried to make it all night, and I did succeed, but I felt like death and my whole body hurt.

I spent the whole day Sunday on the couch, being about good for nothing. My amazing wife did everything she could for all of us. I’m not a very easy person to be around when I feel like that. She deals with me pretty well. πŸ˜€ I must have done something right though because I started feeling a bit better late in the day, but still not well enough to do anything. I made the decision to not go into work, not knowing if I was contagious. I, instead went to the clinic Monday morning, and got on an antibiotic. I also had a meeting with the plumber to tell me that to fix our main water line that is broken, that it will cost about $2100 that I don’t have. So that is fun.

That brings me to today. I came in early to cover a co-worker. I made sure to go to bed early and get some sleep. everything has been going OK thus far, but I’m still achy and not in any mood for crap haha. I will get out about an hour before the others so that is nice. I have my antibiotic for ten days then I should be well in the clear. I really hope I don’t get this crap again. I hate being sick.

As for the plumbing, I think it is one of those things we just have to do, and we are going to have to bite the bullet and go for it. We should still have enough come tax season to waterproof the basement so that should still be a go.

That is all for me today, I may or may not be able to post tomorrow, we will see. I hope you had a much better weekend than I did. and I’ll see ya! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Blah Tuesday…

Hey Everyone!

It has been a slow evening followed by a slow day, so far.

My wife went and picked our baby up from his first day at daycare a bit early. She was out of work so why not? Everything went well. He seemed to be good with it all, and the lady we take him to had nothing but good things to say.

Last night I was able to relax and play a few video games, which has become a rarity lately. I miss it but at the same time I don’t. It is hard to find time for them but I know my time is also needed elsewhere so it doesn’t bother me much. After that I sat down and practiced my Ukulele a bit. I want to brush up on it so I can take it to the reunion. My extended family is very musically inclined, which is awesome. I want to be able to have a little jam session at least once with a group of them, if I can. One of my cousins that is coming is going to make a short film I believe. So that would be cool. Anyway, I was trying to learn the next few riffs in the Bohemian Rhapsody song I have been trying to learn. It is hard when you only have a four stringed instrument haha.

Today at work I have designed a few wallpapers for desktops in my spare time. I have to run right after this and create a backup image of our badging PC. It was broken recently and we never had an image of it. Well, I fixed it and never want to have to do that again lol. The rest of the day will prove to be slow as well.

Our softball team somehow has 20 members on it. Last I heard we barley had enough to play. Shit we could have had two full teams… I’m going to HR and ‘pitch’ that idea soon. I wonder if its already to late to throw another team in?

That’s all from me today. I hope your Tuesday is calm and productive. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

End of Softball & Weekend

We made it to Friday yet again, a congratulations is in order.

I don’t have anything spectacular planned for this weekend but this one just feels deserved. Today after work I was asked by my co-worker to help him get drywall with my truck. His family is out of town for the day and he wants to take that opportunity to work on finishing his basement project. We will pick up six or so sheets of drywall to finish up his walls. It doesn’t hurt that he offered some beers as a thank you. I told him I’d help him, no problem. My wife is going this evening to meet up with our next bride to be, to go over schedules and check out the reception place. I think it may all be held in a somewhat local park.

Saturday, I have known for a while that I have a softball tournament. It is about 30 minutes away. It is all day Saturday, starting at 8:45am and going until it is over. Most times it is a one pitch tournament, meaning you start with a full count to speed up the games. This is because they only have one field and too many teams. It adds a different playing style when that happens. Our team won the whole thing last year. We played six games in one day! This is the last tournament for me this season. I’m kinda glad it is over because it has been a long year. But, to make it suck a little we have the first game….at 8:45am…..30 minutes away. I will have to leave my house tomorrow by 7am to get there and warmed up. That makes for an early morning, and potentially a long, long day.

Sunday i don’t have any real plans to do anything, but I feel like I should go do something fun for myself and possibly my wife. I’m thinking an Ingress trip up North. Maybe, we can stop at the mall up there to satisfy my wife a bit too haha. I’ll try working on the Minecraft server domain issues this weekend as well. Speaking of that I finished my tower and then found out my profile got all jacked up. I ended up blowing it away completely and re working it. I thought it was the Mob Spawner that was doing it but it wasn’t. As another side note I hope we get the pre-approval letter today that would make the weekend ten times better. If not we would most likely get it Monday, which would be a good start to the week.

I hope you all have a great rest of the day and a great weekend. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
