I really didn't go anywhere. I just didn't feel like blogging for a week. Not really because I have nothing to say, more because I was making a general protest of anything that even resembled work! I have spent this week reading and finishing Harry Potter, playing computer games, and e-mailing back and forth with my husband. It's been a good week! ;)
Let's see - last weekend we found the housing development, builder, and lot that we want to get. And last night we went to the mortgage people and found out today that we are approved so that is definitely a step in the right direction. Now just a matter of playing the numbers game until it's comfortable for us to make payments and insurance and taxes and all of that mess. And then for the fun stuff like picking out brick color and carpet and countertops and all of that. Yippee!! The good news is that it should be ready to go in February for our move-in to coincide with our lease running out so that will be some good stuff. No having to break our lease, no having to extend it other than possibly through the entire month of February just to give ourselves a little extra freedom in moving time.
I start my new job on Monday, and I couldn't be more excited. I am really looking forward to it and the temporarily short commute. :) I wish they would extend public transportation up into the Las Colinas area - hmm, maybe one day......Other than that, not a whole lot else to say. Just wanted to let you all know that I didn't have a heart attack from watching the window washers in their death-defying job nor blow away in the torrential downpours we have been having lately. All good things! LOL
I might write tomorrow about my last day. My guess is that it will be pretty uneventful so I may not, but I will definitely write sometime Monday with news of my first day at the new place. This weekend is going to be super low-key. Mostly just relaxing at home with the pets, running a few errands, and maybe a mini shopping spree to have a few new outfits for my new job. We'll see how the bank account looks after I pay the bills that are due soon! Hope you all have had a great week and have a great weekend if I don't talk to you before! :)
