Moving twice in 2 weeks sucks

Share

Yes, i know, everything seems to suck these days, but moving 2 times in 2 weeks is definitely one of them. We just got everything put down, the bed put together, etc. and we’re working on getting all of our services hooked up. right now we’re connected via someone’s wireless somehow, but we are getting […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, moving didn’t suck quite as bad this time. We did finalize our temporary move on my birthday (June 2). I worked up until almost quitting time on June 1 and then we headed out. We got here, even further into the midwest, around 8 pm. We got in, our bed set up, and got […]

I HATE MOVING

I guess there’s not much point in thinking if I say something I’ll jinx it, I’m already jinxed. My brain is completely shut down right about now. Not even sure why, it’s the middle of the afternoon and I had plenty of sleep plus a nap this morning.

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 […]
