Mar 23rd -- that was the last posting... *sigh*

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bigfundrew for the nudge a couple days ago... that nudge combined with [livejournal.com profile] philabearjoe's recent picture of me, and inspired by the fact that [livejournal.com profile] obsessing7 is still posting... has finally got me to come in to LJ and visit for a spell.

Since March I've poked my head in a couple times and tried to keep up with a few LJ friends... but never got around to making an entry. Sad part is, I know there's been a couple of events in my life when I thought in my head "I should make an LJ entry about this"...

The truth is that I used to journal while at work... but earlier this year, I had an intense project that took away my surfing/journaling time... now, I'm just out of the habit.

So without further ado...
16 Notable Events in the Past 16 Weeks )

Kind of amazing that there was at least one important thing each week... makes me feel good to reflect on them a bit and record them. I'll have to share some pictures of them too -- once I find/upload the pics.

So now we're caught-up to today... I'm sitting at camp right now, recovering from a night of fun "Bear Weekend" partying. Barry and I are on vacation this entire week... we're going to P-Town for Bear Week. I'm excited about going to P-Town for the first time ever... and excited about having a "fire and picnic on the beach" -- something I've always wanted to do. Really looking forward to a fun and relaxing (and "sexy" with all the eye-candy there will be) week!

(Hugs)

Let's see... where was I?... goodness, last post was a week ago... what to share, what to share...

This past weekend at camp was full of preparations for the show this weekend. Really pulled together a lot of the loose ends and the show has taken shape. I'm really excited about it and hopefully it will come-off as good as we hope. I'll post more about the show after this weekend... for now I'm just too busy getting ready for it to post anything about it.

Saturday, Barry and I took a little break from camp and met Kim in Scranton to see Kathy Griffin. Holy cow she's funny! I used to love her on "Suddenly Susan" and now that she has her own show ("D-List") I caught that and love her humor. It's kind of sarcastic and blunt, and I love how when she is humorous around other people they never seem to "get it"... Anyway, her stand-up in-person was great -- and she kept us laughing for almost two hours! There was some stuff that went over my head -- she loves talking gossip on the stars, and some of the names she dropped I had no clue who she was talking about... but even then, she generally got her humor across even if you didn't know who she was talking about. She makes me want to be a star and know all the star gossip and hang out with her. :)

Well... that's about it... been crazy-hectic getting things ready for camp. We FINALLY went through all the boxes stacked in our guest-room (aka storage room) from when we moved in here 6-months ago... we haven't unpacked them, but at least went through them to check on the stuff and realize that we just don't have the room for most of it... but that I just can't get rid of it... seriously... I can't... someday we'll get through it... everything has it's place, just right now that place is in a box or we're just lazy and can't be bothered to sort it all. Anyway... the point I was getting at is that we're still looking for our Walkie-Talkies for camp and even after all those boxes they are still missing! ARGH! Wish me luck... I'm working from home again today and will try to tackle the downstairs storage room. *EEK!*

At least downstairs will be cool... the heat-pump in this condo just sucks when it gets too hot outside. It really doesn't work all that well... I've been wrestling with it for the last two/three weeks... I think we may need to get a window A/C unit in the bedroom to help the house... sad part is, we would only really need it for when it's really hot (over 85, like it has been)... and it's hardly ever THAT hot for extended periods of time... this past couple days has really been quite the heat-wave and rain-fest. *ugh*
savage25: (Christmas)
Christmas Eve was spent wrapping gifts all day... Barry worked on putting the Bowflex together. (or "Blowfex" as we call it now because of how hard it was to put together. I could hear cursing and banging coming from the room... so I stayed far out of Barry's way while he worked on it.) I ran and did a tiny bit of last-minute shopping too... but not much.

Christmas Eve evening we went to Barry's mom's house for a gathering there. Ken and Don went with us... met some more of Barry's family (aunts/uncles) that I had never met before and everyone ate, drank, and was merry. It was very nice... she had a big buffet spread of all kinds of foods and we drank and played liar's dice late into the evening. I even got a gift from his mom... I didn't expect anything... it was very sweet of her. It was a very different "Christmas Eve" dinner than I'm used too... I grew up with a traditional Polish / Catholic dinner at Grandmom's (no meat: fish, potatoes, & pierogies) followed by midnight mass. Quite different, eh? LOL!

After we all had plenty of Christmas "cheer" (aka Barry was in no shape to drive), Ken, Don, Barry, and I went to Diamonz on our way home to toast to Christmas. We got there at 11:55 and they closed at Midnight... luckily Barry knew the bartender and sweet-talked him into letting us get one round. (I tipped him well... :) Then we came home and all exchanged gifts. It was fun... unwrapped each other too -- a little teasing / flirting going on -- nothing "happened", just fun. Finally all passed out into bed around 2 or so. (New icon is from a picture we took that night... "me as drunk santa" I think I'll call it.)

Christmas morning I awoke at 7:30ish eager to get to my sister's to open presents. Barry wasn't moving though and was grumpy... I tried to be very gentle (figuring he had a hangover) but he wouldn't budge. I was afraid Christmas was going to be cancelled... but he finally started moving when my sister called at 8:45 to see where we were. We finally made it over at about 10:30... my poor sister and mom -- I'm sure it was just eating them up that they had to wait so long to open gifts. *giggle* *sigh*

Gift exchange with my family was great -- lots and lots of presents all around. We have a tradition of going around one gift at a time, youngest to oldest. It takes a lot of time, but lets everyone enjoy the gifts. I don't remember all the gifts... the first few that come to mind: a power-hand-sander, omaha steaks, phaltzgraff dishes, and madonna's new CD. I think Barry was a little shocked at how many gifts he had... I had warned him that my mom and dad make sure that everyone has an equal amount of gifts (so no one gets jealous). :)

After the gift exchange, we sat around and played with our new toys... including setting up my mom's portable printer that we got her. Then we watched a movie and almost fell asleep on the couch when Chris' parents arrived and there was another round of gifts, then my Aunt Maureen arrived and there was another round of gifts. Then we all ate huge dinner of lasagna, ham, mac-and-cheese, potatoes, etc. Yum! Followed by desert. Barry and I barely were able to roll out the door after all that... but managed to make our way home to collapse.

Quite a holiday it was! And although the major holiday stuff is over, there still seems to be a lot to do -- mainly getting the house ready now that we will be able to concentrate on it. Monday, Barry spent the entire day with the Blowfex and almost got it all together. I went shopping with Ken to find a "pantry" for our kitchen so that Barry and I can get food... we also got some shelves for the closet and other things for the house... I think that within the next two weeks we are really going to be able to concentrate on getting this house "unpacked"... Which we really need to do, since the 14th is the big party. A quick glance at the calendar shows nothing for the next two weeks -- so that's a good thing... Barry and I need to calm down a bit and really spend some time on "us".

This morning, Chubby arrived and started work on the basement bathroom. He's down there now banging and sawing away. I can't wait for that to be done... Don't know what we're going to do with all the stuff in the house... but things are getting there slowly. It'll be great once the bathroom is finished so we have one less thing to worry about... at least we don't have to actually do any "work" to build the bathroom.
savage25: (Drunk Girl)
Friday evening Barry and I went to a holiday party at friend's (Chris & Jennie) place... it was really nice, enjoyable party. Chris has a beautiful house... something that Barry and I would really like I think... two story, in-ground pool, hot-tub, two-floor ceiling in the living room, fireplace, out in the middle of nowhere, etc.

We both got a bit drunk, but not excessively... Had a good time hanging out with everyone.

So have you seen Drunk Girl... it's a skit from SNL that Amy introduced me too. Hilarious! She said when I'm drunk she has actually heard and seen me do things almost exactly like "Drunk Girl". LOL! Too funny... we were chatting about it at the party... I just had to make a new icon for use when posting about my drunken debauchery. :)

Yesterday (Saturday), Barry and I borrowed a truck from "Pops" while he changed my car's oil and got an inspection. We did a bunch of running around: got the "curtain rods" for the 17ft span that I want in our bedroom, got our grill from the old rental, and other misc stuff. Turned out to be a very long afternoon and very tiring... Barry was not feeling very well (hung over and stuff) and we were tired after all that running around... He fell asleep watching TV, so I "canceled" our evening out at Pat's party... It was hard for me to do, but knew that we couldn't make it and enjoy ourselves.

It seems like nothing is getting accomplished around this house. I keep trying to start projects and finalize rooms, but there's just more boxes and more bags every time I turn around. It's so frustrating...

Do you wanna know what I think I should do? Do you wanna know? Doyawannaknow? Doyawano? Dyawno? ... I think I should just go get drunk.

OK... quick catch-up on the madness that is my life...
Since the last posting, which was just before our trip to Ohio for Thanksgiving...

* Trip out to Ohio was snowy and slow... thankfully stopped at my uncle's in Pittsburgh for the night.

* Was a nice family Thanksgiving in Wooster. Barry saved Thanksgiving... seriously... the bird wasn't cooked when it was taken out at 4pm... and my aunt and uncle panicked a little... but Barry stepped in, calmed them down, and told them what to do. We served up the wine to everyone and everyone got a little tipsy... then no one realized that we ate dinner almost 2 hours behind schedule. Yay for wine! Yay for Barry!

* As we were leaving, my aunt pulled me to the side and said, "I really like Barry... he's so nice". It was really nice of her.

* Spent two days hanging with my brother, his family, and my parents in Columbus. It was nice. We were too beat to go out to the bars like we had planned.

* Over the past two weeks we've been packing our rental house up and getting ready for the move. Packing was tough... (but not nearly as we're finding unpacking though, more about that later) I think amidst packing we've also been going out every night to eat and/or to visit friends. Holidays are NOT the time to move... Let it be known that if not for the money savings I would be very upset with this whole moving-over-the-holidays thing. (But money savings be damned... more about that later.)

* Wine Tasting party at Bill & Jerry's was fun... surprised me to find out that I work with Bill now. (Jerry is Barry's coworker and our reason for being invited.) I saw Bill at the party and realized "Holy Crap, THAT'S how I know him!!" Met several of my coworkers at the party and was suddenly faced with the fact that I guess I'm out now... not that I purposely hide at work... but never bring it up... I have a feeling these coworkers know now. :)

* Game Night at Marea & Chris' house was nice... their house is all decorated so nicely for the holidays. *sigh*

* Got a first estimate for building a new bathroom downstairs for "the boys" (Ken & Don)... $18,000! Holy crap!! Yeah, right!?! Ummm... no. The second contractor, "Chubby", came and seemed like a really nice guy who really wanted to do it. He even said that estimate was very high... (He was recommended as a friend of one of Barry's coworkers.) He gave us an estimate two days ago of $9,600... still more than I expected to pay, but I'm taking an equity loan and we're going for it. Having him do all the work, and finishing within about 2 weeks, and saving us the stress of doing it is TOTALLY worth the money. I hope it goes well... and it will be nice for the boys to have their own bathroom. The only thing I'm a little "jealous" of is that they will have a larger and better bathroom than me. *pout*

* Other holiday dinners and gatherings going on have been nice. Everyone is asking about "Winterfest 2006"... I'm looking forward to hosting it... but very worried the house will not be ready... even though we are totally planning for it to be.

* Rented a 24ft truck on Saturday and had lots of friends/family help to move. It went so quickly... started at 10:30am, finished (dropped the truck off) at 2:30pm. WOW! Glad it went so very smoothly... Now... there are floor to ceiling boxes in almost every room. *ACKK!* Talk about overwhelmed...

* Got Dish Network satellite TV installed yesterday. Yay DVR!! and on-screen guide!! We have been so lost without them the past couple days. AND we can start recording our shows again... yay!

* We cleaned the rental and left the keys... we're totally moved out... kind of sad... but never really got attached to the place. (Heck, never even unpacked all my boxes!)

* Barry is feeling very stressed lately... it's upsetting... I wish there was something I could do... but right now I just feel like staying out of his way is the only thing that helps at all... I can't do anything right. But that just my take on things (my self-conscious, poor self-esteem), right?

* Finally... as I alluded to a little above... I'm feeling a crunch on my wallet... I got my Amex bill yesterday... and it was A LOT higher than I had expected... I don't know WHERE it all added up from... I mean, seriously, I knew we were spending a lot more money lately... but ouch... This may be the first time in 5 years that I'm going to have to let a balance roll over on my credit card... and I haven't even done much christmas shopping yet.

* To Do: Holiday Cards, Shopping, Unpack, Decorate, Party, Work... hmmm... guess that's about it... seems like a lot more is looming over me though... guess I need to start some check lists to help focus my attention and prevent this overwhelming feeling from overtaking me.
savage25: (Default)
OMG... I haven't LJ'd in like 9 days... Did a quick scan of all my friends' posts... Tried to catch up a bit. Things are so hectic, I have a feeling that posts are going to be at a minimum for a while... although perhaps while on vacation this weekend I'll be able to update a little.

* My last post was just before Barry and I put on our tuxes and went to my mom's banquet. Barry and I looked so hot in our tuxes! (Good god it was all I could do to keep myself off him all night.)

* The award banquet was preceded by several cocktail receptions. It was really great being there for my mom. And I could really tell she was happy that we could all be there.

* I managed to not get drunk and be able to take some good pictures at the banquet.

* Barry and I went out to meet [livejournal.com profile] thepup and [livejournal.com profile] cactusbear later that night. We met them at a different bar: I forget the name of it now... darn... but anyway... it was really nice place. Scary on the outside (we both were wondering "what are we getting into here") but really cool on the inside. We gave them Barry's rented tux so that he could return it for us (thanks Scott!) then we all sat and chatted and got slightly intoxicated and had a really good time. It was a really fun evening.

* "Scary stalker out-of-town business guy" showed up at the bar that evening (he was at the Padlock a few nights before hitting on Barry and I)... we all tried to avoid eye contact... ugh... He was so skeevey.

* Barry and I were hit-on by this really cute guy that was there. We played pool with him and he really wanted to spend the night with us. If it wasn't the last night of our trip, things might have worked out differently. (I'm just say'n)

* Return trip from AZ went smoothly. It was sad to go...

* Pictures from Arizona are on my PC and ready to be uploaded... hopefully soon. Really, I mean it.

* Last week and weekend was pretty un-eventful... Barry and I are just trying to keep on top of everything that needs to get done. Moving during the holidays is not a smart idea... but we'll manage.

* Had issues with getting Lee to pick up his stuff from the condo. It was really in the way and really starting to put us behind schedule. Ken & Don were constantly bugging me about getting it out of there and I was really getting stressed about it. Friday he finally came and I helped him move it all (in two trips, using two vehicles each trip).

* Keg party on Saturday for Sarah's 30th was a lot of fun. The "jungle juice" was so sweet and yummy... I paid for it the following day though. :) The birthday girl had fun too I think... even got her to do a keg stand... LOL! "Survivor Flip Cup" came down to me vs her... I let her win. ;) Barry was enjoying the beer pong game... his opponents (straight guys) were grabbing their crotches trying to distract him...

* Barry and I picked out paint colors for all the rooms in the condo. I'm SO SO SO excited and can't wait to see what the rooms will look like once they are finished. Ken & Don are going to paint the rooms for us... it's so nice of them (I'm giving them discount on their rent for doing it). Summary of rooms: Bedroom is dark red and dark blue; office is light blue and yellow; guest room is dark brown, tan, and orange; bathroom is light green; living room is light purple and light blue (almost white). I don't remember all the color names off-hand, but I'll have to do a post about them. (It was really fun picking out colors using the Behr color computer and previewing the colors in a picture on the computer.) For the bedroom, I'm planning to do a curtain along one of the walls (floor-to-ceiling)... we picked up that fabric this weekend too.

* Getting ready for our trip to Ohio (Aunt's house in Wooster) for Thanksgiving. Should be a nice trip.

That's all I can remember at this point... Feel a little better now that this is done... I feel like it's one more thing off my to-do list.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Eeek... it's been over a week since I posted... so much is going on it's running me crazy and starting to feel that "all too familiar" overwhelmed feeling. Jeez...

Halloween Closing weekend at camp went really well. It was a fun evening helping out in the "Haunted Pavilion" for the camp... I sat in a room and was "forced" to watch straight porn all night (the theme of the scary-walk was "Homo Treatment Center" where they tried to de-gay people in scary ways, including cutting it out of their brains, and [in my case] forcing them to watch titties [blech!])... LOL! Barry scared people walking around the lake... Everyone had a good time. Costume party was full of a lot of amazing costumes. My costume: I wore a black witch's hat and doctor's scrubs... I was a witch doctor... get it?? LOL... no one else really got it either until I explained it... I guess I go for the more "cerebral" costumes... LOL... I hope someone emails me pictures cause I didn't have my camera.

Move Things are still kinda crazy with the move... so many plans and nothing being done... Lee has not moved his stuff out of the condo yet... I'd say about half his stuff is still there... and it's a mess... If not out soon I think the boys (Ken & Don) are going to just throw it out on the lawn... they are itching to paint and move in... I don't blame them... and I don't feel that we owe anything to Lee since he wasn't keeping up with his rent.

Condo Improvements Current plans are to build a full bathroom downstairs for K&D... which is great... and will improve the condo value... and I found out that if we include a closet in the design then it will add a "bedroom" to the unit... making the current "3-BR, 1.5 Bath" into a "4-BR, 2.5 Bath"... I think that will increase the value big-time! Now, the only problem is... actually building it... How, who, when, where, how... I'm handy with tools and all, but there's no way I'm going to attempt something like this... Barry had a great idea this morning to look into local vo-tech schools to see if students want "practice" to do it?

Trip Only moderately excited about the trip this weekend... I don't think it has hit me yet... there's so much going on that I haven't had time to get excited about it. Plus I'm nervous because we are really "winging it" for the most part... which is nice, but I've never "winged it" on a trip with Barry before... actually, this will be our first vacation together alone... we traveled with my family before, but this one is just us. We have the hotel rooms and the car... so that's the big things I guess... how we fill the days is what is unknown... I guess I'm worried that it will be "wasted" or something... like if we don't see everything or something... which is crazy, I know... but for a planning person... it's not easy to let go and just "visit whatever we find along the way". I've traveled with Amy in Ireland that way and it was amazing... so I guess I need to just keep that in mind and enjoy the trip. And remember too that it's a trip... away from the stress and frustrations of work and the move. Yay!

That's the quick recap... Work is very busy... I have a lot to do... a lot to get done before I leave for a week... I'm stressed... I need to get into work now and stop dilly-dallying around here at the house... But I needed to update my journal... it was lacking updates for so long.

Moving...

Don't have time to explain too detailed... but wanted it posted: Barry and I are moving... it's official... Dec 31st is our last day here... we're moving back to my condo... Lee is out (as of Nov 1), Ken & Don are moving downstairs... Barry and I are moving in upstairs... I'm nervous about the whole thing ("change is good, change is good" is the mantra to have, right?)... I feel odd about how we broke our lease... I feel uneasy about the move... I wonder about the new living arrangements... I want permanence... I want a home... not a temporary dwelling... My intentions are that we are moving into the condo for the long-haul... no more temporary living... no more boxes left unpacked... no more renting... no more pussy-footing-around... At least that's how I feel now... I'm glad about the renewed energy, even if it is nervous energy. I want to paint and repair and update everything... I don't want anything to look the same as it did when I lived there. Nothing. I want to spend the money we would have spent in rent on making the condo "home"... "our home"...
savage25: (Contemplative)
11 days since I updated.
Ugh.

Too much to catch up on from friends' entries, so I'm starting pretty fresh... kind of like my new place... starting fresh... Barry and I officially moved in together this weekend. Our new place is nice. There's some problems (leaks, smells, etc), but there's a lot of pluses too (DVR, "our" place, quiet, nice). I don't know how long it will take to "complete" the move... as our 1-car garage is literally full of stuff that is packed in random boxes and bags. Mostly, it's my stuff... mostly, it's crap... but you know what, it's my stuff and I have had a reason for it... it needs to be respected just like I would respect anyone else's stuff. Barry and I had made a pact that nothing would stay unless we both agree upon it, and that we'll do a "clean sweep" of our lives... however... the move and all took longer than expected and in desperation we moved some stuff in (kitchen, clothing, bathroom, computer) that we didn't necessarily put through the purge process. I'm feeling like we're not off to a good, clean start... But the main reason (and feeling) is that we're overwhelmed. There is just too much to do and not enough time to do it. "one box at a time..." is what I need to keep telling myself. Just kills me that some stuff that I really want can't be found at the moment (like the screws to my computer desk)... Life is going to be hell for a few weeks... hell, but at least it will be "new" hell... at least there's something to be said for that.
God grant me serenity...
savage25: (Contemplative)
Barry and I went to check out another home last night to rent.

We really liked it... it's a little more expensive than we originally wanted... but it's a stand-alone house with a huge yard, 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1-car garage, big kitchen, fireplace, large basement (unfinished but usable), central air, oil heat.

After looking at it, we discussed it for a couple hours. Making a choice like this (moving) is a big step. It's one of those things (like buying a car, choosing a doctor, buying a house) that I always feel like I should be asking my parents, "Am I doing the right thing?" -- yet... I can't ask my parents anymore... I'm grown up... there's no one to really rely on except myself. But, Barry and I are doing this together... so we're in it together and it was nice sharing the decision with him.

It's a big step... a big change... but I feel confident. And I feel loved going into this... it's going to be so good!

We're putting the deposit in today and then moving in April 15th. After our trip next week it'll be a few weeks of packing hell for me (and him, but he has less stuff)... and then moving in... Very excited. Wish us luck.

Details on house-warming party to be determined once we're in. ;)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I woke up last night at 3am with insomnia... weird... I felt totally awake... I watched TV for two hours then went and curled back in bed with Barry. His alarm went off at 5:30 and he got up. I felt like I should just get up... but knew that I had a long evening coming tonight and should get some sleep... so I finally fell back asleep and slept until 9:30.

Barry kissed me farewell this morning. I miss him already. I'm sitting here at his PC and checking my email and procrastinating from continuing my day. So far a nice day off of work... but so far I haven't done anything either. I need to eat, mail my taxes, get a haircut (story below), pack for Vermont, and leave for Vermont. Not to mention all the other things that are just spinning around in my head -- like looking for an apartment with Barry, garbage issues at my place (shoot! I just realized that I needed to get home this morning to put out trash, because the people living there don't seem to "get it" that we need to compress the trash into as few bags as possible, stick a label on each bag, and put it out on the yard on Thursday morning... the trash has been building up there for several weeks and they are generating like two or three bags a week. Good god, eating at home produces a lot of garbage. Hence another reason I like eating out.)

So... I need a haircut... and my friends want me to go to American Hairlines (and they got me a gift cert) so that I can get a "real hair-styling". I'm lazy and nervous about going to such a nice (and expensive) place. I'm going to cop-out and go to SuperCuts and just get my $14 haircut. I don't like doing new things... especially when I have things to do and don't want to take the chance of screwing up my hair just before going on a long vacation with my family (cruise is next weekend!!).

I'm kind of sad that I'm not going to be going out for St Patty's Day tonight. I've gone out for the past 8+ years and always enjoy St Patty's day. (I usually always take the next day off and don't enjoy being hung-over.) It feels weird not celebrating. We'll be on the road to Vermont tonight... not leaving until 5pm... that puts us in the condo tonight around midnight... no time for party... *sigh* Oh well... "make the best of it, Paul."

OK... that's my entry for the day... and possibly for the weekend... I'll try to remember to post a voice posting sometime this weekend.
savage25: (Resting)
I spent the day at home, in bed, sick.
I woke up at 2:30am this morning and felt extremely dizzy... like I almost fell over getting out of bed, and couldn't walk down the hallway without holding the walls.
It scared me. I thought I was drunk at first (from the 3 beers I had that night with dinner)... but it definitely wasn't drunk.
I felt only slightly better this morning... drove myself home (without looking both ways at the intersections for fear of making myself queasy)... then took some medicine and worked until I got sleepy. Then slept the entire day.

I tried to make a doctor appt this morning... I called "my" doctor's office and the receptionist said I was no longer a patient there because I hadn't seen the doctor since 2001. And since the doctor was out of town for a week, she couldn't do anything for me (couldn't recommend a doctor or anything)... she suggested a walk-in clinic. I hate doctors and struggled with myself for literally a half-hour before finally convincing myself to call her... so there's no way I'll be going to a walk-in clinic unless I'm taken in on a dolly or wheelchair. So, at this point, it looks like I better get well on home remedies...

Woke up around 4:30, checked email, talked with my honey, then ate some dinner, and now I took some NyQuil and am making this entry before drifting off to sleep again. I hope that I'm feeling better tomorrow.

Barry and I have come to the decision that we will be moving in together in April. I have people staying at my place, and I think it will be a really good (and exciting) thing for Barry and I to move into a "place of our own", so I'm going to rent out my house. Barry and I will rent for a year and then consider buying a house of our own.
I was discussing with Ken and Don tonight the whole process and what I will be leaving and what I will be taking and what kind of lease I will be writing up and whether or not they can paint and smoke inside, etc, etc... It's really overwhelming me... This is a major change in my life... I haven't wanted to admit to myself how major a change this is... but it's major. I need to accept that and start working on getting things organized. Oh so often in life I sit back and let things happen... this is something that I need to work on and actually "take the reigns" shall we say. I'm scared.

And being sick is not helping, although, it was good in that it let me spend a day resting and thinking and discussing with Ken & Don. I need to discuss with Lee and then start putting things in motion. Hopefully I won't be sick, and hopefully things will go smoothly...

I miss not being with Barry this evening... and he told me that he missed me being there... That was the deciding factor that we both agree we want to live with each other officially -- share a common place to call "home".

Wish us luck...
