So I'm getting fed up with crap at work. I so need to relax more, I'm starting to say things I realize afterwards that I shouldn't. It's just that theres a certain level of stupidity going on that just gets under my skin. Between my back bothering me, trying to get out of driving while they have several casuals who could do it but arn't being allowed to, and just stuff outside of work like the wedding and house hunt, I have just gotten to be in a bad mood every time I go in to work.
I know they arn't going to fire me, people have done a lot worse and are still there, but I don't like being one of those folks. I just seem to say things before I think about it.
Maybe I just need a vacation.

So we have enough money to pay off the wedding. Now we just need a downpayment for a place.
Seems like everything we like is out of our price range, which really sucks. The problem is that neither Jackie or I are that great at home improvement and most of whats in our range are fix-er uppers. Add in that with our scheduals we can only go look on the weekend and this is becoming a real challenge. The person whos helping us is also looking for a place, which sometimes limits our time to search even more, and of course all the stuff we need to do for the wedding has to be done on weekends as well.... get the picture.

So we're supposed to go to dance class tonight, but it's also supposed to snow so I don't know if either are happening. I'm not thrilled with the whole dance thing, I'm large, awkward, and stiff - not major dancing material. Jackie loves stepping on my feet which is why she wants to learn to dance. But I have a feeling it's going to be yet another thing we have to pack into our busy weekeends because I just can't go late night before work and miss sleep when I have to drive that night for 8 hours, dead tired and riving don't mix well.
Oh well, whatever she wants right?

Here Again

It's been over a year since I walked away from this blog. Yet here I stand again.
This is the year I get married. In fact it's less than 6 months away. The good news is that we have enough money to pay for the whole wedding.
The bad news is we have no money to put as a down payment on a place. We've been trying to get a house or cndo and so far no luck. I have to be out of here by Mid-April so time grows short.
Back in Nov I threw my back out bad, ruptured disc. I was laid up for over 5 weeks in bed. It took a cortozone shot directly into the spine to get me back moving again.
Also I'm dealing right now with a stubborn Upper Respritory Infection that has lasted over a month despite several differant medicines they've tried. But it does seem to be slowly leaving, finally.
Work goes ok. I'm trying to get them to take me out of driving, 8 hours in a car each night bothers my back, but theres no positions open yet so I keep waiting for someone to retire. I'm trying to not make too much of a stink about it since the economy is so bad that even Yale is talking about cut backs, I waited almost 2 years to be full time and don't want to risk losing it.
Other than all that everything else remains just life. I don't get to see my friends as much as I'd like, just too busy right now. Jackie and I don't get as much cuddle time as I'd like, too busy and also the back and coughing problems.
I will pot when I can,a nd try and find time to chec up on those who I used to keep in touch with here. Hope all are good.
