I came home and immediately started a nap because ughhffhhhh.
Shortly after Chuck got home, a guy knocked on our door and thankfully he answered it rather than me because I have a history in getting in sticky situations after answering the door.
Anyway: this guy wanted to know if there was a really nice microwave in our basement because he had lent his really nice microwave to his brother-in-law who used to live here and really wanted it back. (who borrows a microwave?)
No microwaves at all in this house…Chuck was like “lol, nope” and he eventually left.
I get that he wanted his really nice microwave back and all, but honestly, we just bought the house and all its contents- even if we did have the microwave, it wouldn’t be his place to ask for it back….soo now I feel like he was casing the house and the whole thing is pretty weird.
The house is FAR from done, but here’s some before and after fun with the front of the house as of today. Notable accomplishments: screen removal, transition from a post mount to wall mount mailbox, front door color, and LOTS of plants/flowers.
I pulled out the good camera and snapped a few photos of goings on around the house today.
You go glen coco if you noticed little Morgan face in the window before I pointed it out!
Some misc house photos of my favorite spaces. :)
Fluff ball shots of the day
My mom’s neighbor. I used to petsit for them.
A few years ago they purchased 2 Great Pyrenees puppies- got bored with them and promptly threw them in their extremely tiny backyard where they turned brown from mud and lay depressed on the deck in all weather. Eventually gave one away(lucky dog) . The other died of a combination of starvation/broken heart/Iack of vet care. Horrible.
They also have cats.
Today I learned that they purchased “second generation golden doodle” puppy. F U shitty breeder supporters. Horrible. Because people who can barely take care of cats definitely need a dog with high grooming requirements.
ICING ON THE CAKE
They asked my mom what vet we use because…wait for it…. THEY WANT TO HAVE ALL 3 THREE 3 OF THEIR CATS EUTHANIZED ASAP. and none of them have ever had any vet care, so they didn’t know where to go.
GOOD FUCKING LUCK finding a vet who is horrible enough to euthanize all your pets because they’re old and boring now.
GODDDD. I hate people so much.
Dutchess finally lets me trim her nails without having to have 1 person hold her down while I trim.
I guess a year long clean record of not hitting the quick earned me such rewards.
Guys, my boss is going to council tonight to ask them to allow him to make my position permanent.
This morning he asked me to create a bullet point list of everything I regularly do for our organization to help him prepare.
I’m so nervous they’ll tell him no. I know he really wants to keep me- and I want to keep working for him.
All the nerves. One of the many hurdles we’re going to have to go over to make me permanent.
Let me share a peek into our current situation
Just bought a house(bye 75% of our savings, hello debt)
Chuck is seeking new employment(current employer sucks assssss)
Chuck’s transmission blew this morning, repair cost $3500, on a $2000 truck. Lol no.
So we’re looking for a new vehicle for him.
His current employer wants him to have a truck(more convenient for them, jerks)
But he will need a fuel efficient car for future employment
And good trucks are more expensive than good cars.
He doesn’t want to jeopardize his current job…but he doesn’t want another truck.
Our house needs attention ASAP
And my job is far from permanent to top it all off.
We have some savings but FuuuuU universe and timing.
Lol brb life is scary and hard.
Little bunny foo foo hopping through the water.
Did I mention that my entire department is currently in temporary digs in a retired court room and that my office is the witness stand?
Tiniest office ever award goes to me. Would not recccomend lol
