The painting at the condo is done! The place reeked of new paint, but it looks great. Tonight we will try to put stuff back where it belongs, before the big birthday weekend (yeah!), and I will spend part of Monday doing more stuff around the place so it can be shown and people can fall in love with it and buy it. As for me, I am tired of the place and am looking forward to the arduous task of moving cross country - as you may have guessed, I have a touch of a masochistic streak in me with a taste for suffering. But hey, the rewards in the end (of the move - get your mind out of the gutter) are worth it.

Did anyone watch 'ER' last night? All I can say is, "DAMN!" Watching aguy have his arm chopped off by the rotor blades of a helicopter sure gets you going... Especially if the arm belongs to an ass-puppet chief of staff asshole like Romano! (I know, I need a life... But I love 'ER' and am addicted)

I thought getting everything cleared out of the condo and having it painted were big, but last night we took our biggest step since getting married! Read more... )

We did it all... We actually had the place emptied of 95% of all clutter! I hauled out a ton of stuff we threw away. I dropped off about 7 huge garbage bags filled with clothes and shoes to Goodwill. (Love that Tax Deduction!) We boxed up almost all of the stuff we haven't used but want to keep, and I moved it all down to our garage. All of our furniture was moved into the center of their respective rooms, and the place looks BARE! I even managed to do four loads of laundry last night, and watch the season premiere of 'Smallville'. Not bad!

This morning when I met the painter he commented that he couldn't believe we got all that stuff done since he had come out for the estimate on Monday. I guess we are pretty motivated... After all, the idea of selling the condo, making a tidy profit, paying off all our bills (including my student loan), and the eventual moving to NC and buying of an actual house can make you do things in a hurry.

Well, my website is taking shape slowly. I had hoped to have most of it done by now, but I changed my mind a a few times about how to format it. I am opting to use frames, rather than layers and tables, to flesh out the basic design. My design program (Dreamweaver) keeps hanging, which means I might lose changes once in a while, so I am saving often so I don't lose all my work. So my temporary page is sitting there for the moment. But that is the least of my worries! Read more... )

I got to take a shower in my own bathroom this morning! (I know, it doesn't take much to get me happy) Read more... )

In other news - I just received confirmation that my domain should be online sometime tomorrow. Now I have to haul ass and finish some preliminary designs and get them uploaded. Anyone want to create some cool graphics I can use?

You would think that after having two days to finish my home improvement project I would have finished it - but no. Saturday morning and evening I grouted the tile - and took a break in between to attend the Angels versus Rangers game at Edison Field. The game was pretty entertaining and the Angels won 8 to 6. I even bought a hat! The hot dogs and nachos smelled tempting - but I am committed to my weight goals, so I passed. I did have a handful of peanuts though - no cracker jacks. Back to my tile work...
