Whining

I’d like to take this time to apologize for my incessant whining. It’s unnecessary. Feels good, I’ll admit. Hope you’ll all still read me even though I’m being cranky.

The Last Time We Moved

Share

August of 2004
UHaul that didn’t want to idle. Means: you can’t move it without jamming on the gas and if you stop, it dies. Good luck backing up to the house. Give up and leave it hanging a bit but think it will be okay.
Loading things: we did it one piece at a time, through […]

Little Meeces?

Share

It didn’t mean as much to me when my boss had her baby last week as when my girlfriends had theirs (so jealous!) but then I had to put up with her craziness & repeat over and over to myself every day “she’s pregnant, it’s the hormones” and ignore a lot of idiosyncrasies that would […]

CR, IA Bound?!?

Share

Hi all,
Just wondered if you had any “calm down” advice for me. After an interview with another company on Friday, I think Mr. Mouse is going to accept a job in CR. The only problems I see with this are #1 we don’t currently have 2 reliable long-distance vehicles and #2 CR is a big […]

Mr. and Mrs. Mouse’s new house?

Share

Hmmm. May be moving in a different direction than we thought. Mr. Mouse has been contacted several times from a company out of Iowa and they want him to go visit and see if he wants a job with them. They know he doesn’t have experience and they’re okay with that. What?!? Anyway, I have […]

Two left feet

Share

I feel like I have 2 left feet this morning. I’m up waaay too early, but I had a procedure done on my left foot yesterday, and when you sleep on the right side of the bed, it’s hard to keep your left foot out of harms way. I have to walk across campus today […]

Interview

Share

KtJrdn asked me the following questions:
1. If money were no object, would you have a job? What would you do?

I would probably have a part time job, or volunteer in the community. I can’t do enough of that now because we’re so wrapped up in what we have going on at the present moment. I […]

Biding Time

Share

Hi all my loyal readers! Sorry I’ve been so late in getting another post up, basically I’ve been biding time. Mr. Mouse DID get into grad school, YEAH! Good for him. For now I’m stuck working, which I guess it could be worse. Now, though, I’m going to push for an upgrade and a big […]
