I woke up this morning at 3:19am with some weird dreams.
and I owned a mobile home. Not the same one we owned in Bellingham, more of a single wide affair. The earlier part of the dream I can't remember very well, it had to do with my mom's sisters and my cousins. I do know in the dream I woke up from, I was sitting there chatting with gelf_girl andheresyoftruth was cooking something just behind us when someone started pounding on the window looking into our living room (it was at the front door as well). It was my aunt Ardis, I think it was supposed to be my aunt Ines, but she looked more like Ardis. Along with her was my father (of about 20 years ago, the more aggro version).
I laid in bed for a little while, drifted in and out of sleep, but I was up by 4:20 with anxiety about worry for my dad. He had his neck surgery on Tuesday, everything is going well, but all of a sudden I got worried about him.
Yesterday I came home and the wife and I went to Broadway Pad Thai. It isn't a bad little place, the food was great and it was awesome to eat out with the wife. We then went to Radio Shack and she got the necessary parts for "Project NO!! U!!!" I picked up 3 used Xbox 360 games (I had a buy 2 get one free coupon). I ended up with Assassin's Creed, Overlord, and The Darkness. I figured some used games will be good to tide me over until I can afford some of the biggre priced games, such as Dead Rising.
Other good news is we paid off one of our credit cards completely, we have managed to nick down about 4k in the last 2.5 months or so.Just two more cards to go and then we can focus on student loans and car payments. It also means more free money for us, that would be nice. We did splurge a little on the credit cards, but over 80%+ of the cards is comprised of my work/interview clothing and two different city moves (one was for fourty miles, one for 90, and an in town move, plus living on it for a month each time as we waited for first paychecks. Not bad on the debt or the paying back of it.
I am hoping if this works right we will get to go to Disneyland this spring and then maybe Australia this next fall. Heck, I think I would like to just have some extra money in our pockets.
Oh, and I am now trying to arrange to use some of my dentistry benefits before end of the year (where it refreshes). Get the teeth fixed up and maybe get some crowns or bridges if it works out.
Crap.. time to go to work.
