Update on Stress

He finally made the transfer. Nothing went awry.

I hate money stress. I work too hard, save too much to have it.

Can't wait to be uncomplicated.

Got a second "unofficial" interview today. Fingers crossed. joint birthday party. Should. Be. Fun.

This has been an amazing week.

I have a great weekend planned.

But right now I am about to climb the walls.

MX hasn't made his transfer for his share of the mortgage, gas or electric. The mortgage pays tomorrow.

We keep a minimal balance in the account. Unless he makes his transfer there won't be enough funds there.

I keep a minimal balance in my checking as the majority is kept in savings for the interest rate. Of course it takes 2 days to transfer.

He has until midnight.

If he doesn't do it, after countless emails and texts, I am not sure what happens. I have never had this issue before.

Technically the mortgage isn't due until Monday but its scheduled to pay on the 28th and because of that being a Sunday it pays tomorrow. Its too far along to cancel.

At a complete and total loss.

Please house, sell.

Random Musings

Its a good thing I am single. And to my 2 male may want to skip this one!

Tonight I am sitting in bed watching soaps with white toothpaste on a zit. Feeling one step closer to cat lady.

Last week I found my first gray, actually white hair.

Where did that come from? I am only a few short days from 29. Not 79. Oh...maybe the 3 great aunts who were all completely white before 30? Genetics are a bitch.

Speaking of 29...for the first time in years I am actually acknowledging my birthday. I am actually participating in a group party. Quite the change from how I spent my birthday last year. Reading back over this I notice that I fail to mention he moved out on my birthday. More than likely I was trying to subconsciously protect him, even then.

Lastly, a reader request from Just One Week. You can read about my 2010 vision here and here.

3 more days until Rascal Flatts & Darius Rucker, 4 more days until Vegas and 10 more days until I am back home for the weekend.

Why I Love Cheesy TV

Sometimes shows like One Tree Hill are cheesy.

I know it.

I embrace it.

Sometimes the lines speak to you. Like tonight...

People listen to songs that say the words they are too afraid to.

Well hey there Captain Obvious. You are so right.

Just. One. Thing.


I ask just one thing.

Please just let something go right. Let it go right for once.

Hire someone to come in and do some touch-up painting.

Turns out I don't have ceiling white ceilings. They are some tinted color. So total redo for those rooms that needed like 2 touch-ups.

Guest bedroom touch up on the cut-in...Paint doesn't match.

In the last year it seems like I just routinely deal with a series of failures.

And now? It just keeps going. I try and stay positive but I have an amazing house that won't sell, I want to move but haven't found a job. I want to be happy on my own but sometimes I am lonely.

I just want this chapter closed.

I want to move on.

I just want something to go right for once.

The Bounce Back

When I was in college I never had hangovers.


All night morning I was fine.

That ability has gone away, likely because I am not out all night drinking anymore.

Sometimes being an adult is just not as fun as you imagine during your youth.

But I can still bounce back. From illness.

Yesterdays fever came and went so today I started my 5k training plan.

I am back at it. In 12 weeks, or less if I am an overachiever, I will back to running for 30 minutes straight.

That makes me happy.

Once my Nike+ starts cooperating...or I buy a new one since the battery is basically dead I will start posting my runs.

Like I used to.

On the blog I had before.

Before I found out.

Before I knew the truth.

Because I am, as per usual, StartingOver.
