Lazy Tuesday!

Hey Everyone!

Today has been very relaxed, this could be because Everett was up coughing most of the night. :/ That isn’t ideal. I have been taking it easy today, because I’m a bit tired. I find myself just zoning out haha. People probably walk past my office and think I’m losing it.

My mom signed Everett up for a mommy and me ‘swim’ class on Saturdays. He was on a wait list, but I guess we are off of it now and expected to go haha. I think it is a great idea. I loved swimming as a kid and now we can get him acclimated to the water at a young age. The kids can go with parents, grandparents, whoever really. If we can’t make it one week that is fine too, so there is no pressure to do anything that doesn’t work for us. There are a few people that do it, my sister in-law included, who do it. We will see how it goes this coming Saturday.

We have not yet heard anything about our pre-approval for the house. I would have expected to hear from them already, I might have to call the bank lady. We would like to know as soon as possible to start getting things in order. I’m pretty nervous and excited about all of it. The more I eventually know the better I will feel.

There isn’t anything else I can think of to update you all on, so I guess I’ll end this here. I don’t know if my brain is working at 100% today haha. You know what I mean.

I’ll see you all tomorrow! Have a great day. 😀 😀


Rough Start!

Hey Everyone!

It’s Tuesday and do I have a bad morning story for you today!

I awoke like a normal morning, tired and groggy from the recent time change. I took my shower, and while brushing my teeth, I missed and jammed it pretty hard into where my gums meet my lip. I didn’t look but I can feel that it is all bruised and cut up. Overall it doesn’t feel very good! I noticed when I was putting on my clothes that my heel, like around my Achilles Tendon, was in pain. I’m not sure what I did or when, but still to this moment it hurts to walk or bend my foot in anyway. So random heel pain, no bueno! I hobbled along the rest of the morning and made breakfast, like normal, as well as fed the pets and helped get Everett ready. Since it is snowing and crappy here I had to go outside and start my car to get it warmed up for Everett and to get the snow off the windshield. I took one step down the stairs and slipped on ice. I flew backwards, catching my arms on both railings and sliding down the rest of the stairs. OUCH! I have a couple bruises on my arms, but other than that I’m OK. I did instantly think about just calling off from work and calling it a day, but I persisted. I have tried to stay inactive at work, as far as physical labor is concerned, for good reason. That is my sob story for the day haha. I reallllllly hope you are having a better day than me today! 😀

My wife and I gathered all of the things we needed for the pre-approval process. We had to gather our W-2’s for the last two years as well as our last two pay stubs. This accompanying a form with basic information will be processed, in a few days and we will know if the bank will lend us enough money to get started on a house. It is all pretty nerve wracking. I’m not handling it very well. I get overwhelmed with multiple variables that I can’t control. It has me in bad moods and finding myself with a shorter fuse than normal. I am trying to cope with it and not outwardly attack anyone that doesn’t deserve it haha. Once I know more I’ll be more at ease with the whole thing.

The other thing I am handling today is Everett’s referral for tubes. His pediatrician said that we may as well start the process, and that if we chose not to do it we can at any time. Well, we found out that the person we were refereed to does not accept our insurance. I have canceled his first appointment and now have to see if they will refer him to another ear nose throat doctor. That is if this lady ever calls me back.

I hope you are having a great Tuesday, and I hope to see you all back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Server Update & Pre-approval

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

August has come and gone. We will soon be in the midst of the fall season. I can’t wait for hoodie weather. My server is what I would like to talk about for a moment. I had a break though in one of the two areas that have been holding me back. I was looking closely over the server properties configuration file, and noticed that there was inherently a spawn protection setting. I did a quick google search and found that it indeed would protect an area around spawn to the number that you set. It was, by default, at 16 but I changed it to 100. This means from the top to the bottom 100×100 blocks are now protected stemming from my set spawn point. I will happily check that off of my list of things to do. The last thing I have to work on is getting the domain routing correctly. I thought I also had that nailed down last night only to find that when I got to work this morning that I could not connect to it. 😦 I am not really sure why this is such a hard thing to do. I feel like people have done this a million times over again, but there is no clear documentation online about it. (At least not that I have seen) Anyway one step at a time and I will get it done. Soon. Soon. Soon. haha.

As far as the second half of my title, today is the real deal. Today my wife and I applied for a joint pre-approval for a house loan. I had applied myself two other times with just myself, to get a baseline. Well my wife is starting her career and was able to obtain a letter from the Human Resources department of her new employer. This letter states that she is a full time employee, her salary, and her start date. With this information we can proceed in the process of buying a home. We have lived with my parents for the last two years while she finished school and I got my feet under me. For this we are both grateful, but it is time to get out. We want/need a place of our own. We will be able to continue on to the next steps in life. We should be able to get approved for what we want and, with that amount we will be able to buy a house that we can live in for many years. Today is a good day, knowing we can get the ball rolling.

I hope you all have a great day and a great rest of the week. 😀 😀
