Things have been going so quickly. So, so quickly. I moved the majority of my stuff into the house this weekend with Cameron. We painted and put mud on the walls on Saturday, and then he left. Sunday I had a retreat with my new group of students and that went pretty well. It sucked having to work on the weekend, but that’s okay. I took Monday afternoon off / flexed from Sunday and finished painting the bedroom because I didn’t sleep well at all Sunday night.
Speaking of Sunday night, Ellie kept me up all night because she kept hearing things. At 3:30 a.m. there was a cat or something making some awful noise outside. Just lots of creepy things which helped me find motivation to finish my room on Monday.
Yesterday (Tuesday) I stayed home because my body hurt so much. Still pretty achey this morning, but I’m at work. I needed to finish a few things. I might go see a movie tonight.
Over the past week we have done quite a bit of work at the house.
Monday and Tuesday I started painting the living room. Wednesday I bought new drywall. Thursday my dad and Josh put in the drywall in the main room. Friday we put it in the other room. Saturday I sanded the floors with Cameron and then we stained them. Sunday we put polyurethane on it. Today I will put the second coat on it. Woo.
Work has finally started to settle down (I hope). We have certified results, which is stellar.
Money is tight, but I feel like it probably will be until July.
I spent this past weekend at the house tearing up carpet, nails, staples, and paneling. Tomorrow and Friday my dad and sister’s boyfriend will be taking out the walls and putting in new drywall. There was wallpaper in it, and they smoked so it was kind of gross old stuff anyhow. In a few weeks, or maybe May, I will get a dumpster.
The election stuff is still not over, unfortunately. Hopefully soon. I’m over them all. I cannot wait until the end of the semester.
Today is the day! I close on my house. I’m excited, nervous, but mainly happy. I went over there again yesterday with Sam to make sure furniture and stuff was out. It all was except the couch which I bet is hard to get out. lol. The furnace was also working which is exciting.
Election stuff is wrapping up, which I’m excited about. I feel like everything this year is going to be closely monitored because it’s a bunch of white kids running it. By closely monitored, I mean the students not the administration. Which is good, hold them accountable.
Over the past few days I’ve worked way more than I wanted to. I’m trying to find times where I can flex, but don’t see it in my foreseeable future. Maybe Friday. Maybe.
This week has been interesting. A corgi on campus is being written in for presidential candidate and is receiving far too many. Buzzfeed emailed us today about it which is entertaining but unfortunate for the students that are putting in lots of work to win.
Cam and I have been doing well. I’m a bit enamored I think. He’s just so stellar.
I close on my house on Tuesday which is super exciting!
I was so busy last week that I got sick, no joke. I was in Houston from Sunday through Wednesday for a conference. I met some cool folks – Coleman, Clark, Jeremy. It was neat and the weather was warm. The conference was okay, very gay friendly but beyond that I’m not sure how I felt about it. The sessions were okay, but nothing super great.
I got back Wednesday, had to go pick up Ellie after work on Thursday, and then felt like complete crap. I took Friday off because I was ill – I laid in bed most of the day. Then Cameron came over and we just hung out. Saturday we went bowling with Anna, then to see Love, Simon with Zach and Kris, and then they came over and we played Dungeons and Dragons, made dinner, and then watched Girls Night. It was a good day, but long since I wasn’t feeling 100.
This week is the election which should be interesting. I’m very curious to see who wins.
This weekend was a whirlwind. Friday didn’t include much, Cameron came over and we had some pretty incredible sex. That’s all. Saturday we went to Portland to visit my Nana and Grandma. We also went to the Wagon Wheel. It was nice. We came back and hung out for a bit and then Zach and Kris came over as well as Sam, his friend, and Chris. Chris and Sam were into each other but Chris still has a boyfriend so it was extra. Sunday I just went to the gym with Cam and then we went to Palm Palace. It was fantastic and I’m currently dining on it for dinner.
I’m currently watching Planet Earth and Komodo Dragons are fighting. It’s intense.
The saga of the house on Greenlawn continues. Oh my goodness, this whole debacle is really something else. The taxes were estimated quite low, and by quite low I mean $2000 lower than what they thought it would be. This translates to me having to come up with nearly $1200 more at closing. To avoid this, I am now considering the conventional loan. It would be a bit more in terms of principal in monthly costs, but insurance would be much smaller meaning an overall lower monthly payment. *shrug* I dunno, maaaan.
Work has been nice this week. The students are off which gives me time to brainstorm what I want to accomplish. Also, the bus thing is nearly over. Thank God.
I went to Aut with Anna and Rob today. I didn’t drink, but it was nice just to hang out. I also took Ellie for a walk at County Farm Park which was pretty nice. 🙂
What has happened since I last wrote? I feel like this year is flying by. We are almost a quarter way done with the year of 2018.
I celebrated Cameron’s birthday yesterday with him. To do so, we just went to his family’s and hung out there all day. We went to brunch with two of his friends today as well. One of them is a bugger, but that’s okay.
I got to show my mom and dad the house today so that’s exciting. They seemed to like it for the most part. Things to adjust but I’ve already been cognizant of it.
My stomach feels kinda weird.
Things happen so quickly! They accepted the offer and I applied for the mortgage. I am trying to set up the earnest money down. I set up the inspection. The appraisal is set up. Things might still fall apart and I’m prepared for that.
Matt keeps telling me to get a security system which is annoying. Like, I understand, but still annoying.
Work hasn’t been awful. I enjoy working with Laura.
