I just recently looked at the date of my last post and realized that I completely and totally missed February. How does a person miss a whole month??? I realize that it was a really short month, but still.
I then realized that I haven't been able to read the blogs that I usually read because, yet again....life got in the way. I hate it when that happens so I am making it a point to go through my reader and catch up on everything that I have missed while I have been "living".
Life got a little complicated there for awhile but I finally think that I have things together and hopefully get back to doing the fun things in life. Like Thursday Thirteen...I really miss it, although I have thought of a bunch of different things to do my list on...I just never got around to it.
Anyway....some of the things that have been keeping me busy lately.......
*I started playing World of Warcraft so that I could spend some quality time with Mad Hatter and decided that I actually liked it (go figure). Unfortunately, even that has suffered lately as I have maybe logged in three times in the past two weeks.
*Mad Hatter and his friend have decided to go into business for themselves. Now, this is actually a good thing because the way he is working now is costing us a small fortune in taxes. Please do not ask me how much we owe this year in taxes as this will cause me to start twitching again and I just recently stopped. Anyway, my role in their business partnership is basically secretary, shopper, planner, and all around gopher. Can I just say that they do not pay me near what I am worth?
*I am still working part time for four different companies but one of the companies that I work for has slipped precariously close to full time as I am getting at least 30 hours a week. This has made for some interesting juggling of work and home life.
*The company that I work the most hours for decided to have a three day business meeting this week in Dallas. I flew in Tuesday morning and didn't get back until Thursday night so this week was pretty much a bust for getting things done. However, they paid me for the week and also fed me so much that I had trouble buttoning my pants on Friday when I was dressing. Also, the beauty of email made it possible for me to keep up on doing estimates and printing out invoices in the evenings so I was able to keep up on that stuff and not get behind.
*I realized that the poor dog was behind on his shots and about the same time he started chewing the pads on his front paw. So taking him in to the vet for his allergy shots, regular shots, and antibiotics topped out the bill around $250.
*My car decided, since I spoke in it's presence about not wanting to have a car payment to confuse my poor checkbook at this time, that it should start falling apart on me just for a laugh, not once, not twice, but three different times. Now, on one hand the total for all of these things has not exceeded $400 and I have had use of the "company" car during his "sick" moments (which incidentally, I absolutely love and have decided that I want to keep it and pet it daily) however, it's really a pain in the butt and I am tired of dealing with taking it back and forth to the mechanics.
*This time of year there is alot of different Boy Scout events going on and damned if I can keep track of them all, even with my day planner and my lists. So many camping events and then there is the Scout show at the end of the month which we have been trying to prepare for in our spare time.
*Did I mention that I have become a property manager? Yeah, probably cause I am trying my best to forget about it myself. I did manage to find a lease template online and have modified it to serve my purposes so that was helpful. Thank you internet!!!
*This gets it's own line just cause I wanna complain about renters who trash places and leave it filled with all of their belongings and then move out. And then have the nerve to call and want their stuff back. My response? Pay for the damages, the past due rent, and my sanity...it's all yours. Until then......bite me.
*Date nights. Those are my saving grace. Mad Hatter and I decided a few weeks ago that once a week we need "us" time. And so, once a week we do something with just the two of us. I love date nights.
Okay, that is enough for this month's post. (Kidding!)
