I'm not liking my job so much anymore. It is the same crap every day. Customer is mad, customer yells, i help customer, customer is not grateful at all and hangs up on me. We finally did hire some newbies though. The OM did use the schedule I made with a few minor changes. That made me a little happy.
At home...we're still looking for a house to buy. We've been driving by some of them and peeking in the windows (if no one lives there). some are good, and some not so much. I really liked one we saw the other day. It had a really big bright kitchen. That is pretty much my only requirement in a house. I'll let Bob figure out the rest of it.
I found out the other day that we actually get our taxes back! Hooray! We were a little worried for a while that they would be automatically applied to Bob's student loans, but they aren't going to be! Yay for us! That just means we'll have more money to go on my birthday trip! Maybe I can get some new clothes before that too.
I've been working on the same afghan since i guess just before Christmas. I had to pull out two rows on Tuesday because I missed a stitch on both of them (same stitch just didn't catch it on the second row) That was very frustrating because I had started a new roll of yarn and I had to wrap it all back up. Maybe one of these days I will finish it. I've also been trying to decide what to do with it when I'm done. It started out as a birthday present for my niece, but her birthday passed and I SO wasn't done with it. Bob said he really likes the colours and that I should make it big enough for us. I don't know how much yarn that would take, but it will probably take me forever to make it that big. It's only 28 inches right now. I wonder how big it would have to be for us to use it. I'm thinking for Bob that it would have to be at least 5 feet. If that's the case then i only have 32 more inches to go! If I keep going at the pace I've been going it will take me the rest of the year to finish it. So much for Christmas presents! Speaking of which, I need to find out what everyone wants.
I wish our scanner worked, I have some pictures and stuff that I'd like to put on here. I don't know why it doesn't work, but it's very frustrating.
I've done a lot of housework today. I like having a clean house, but I hate cleaning. I wish I didn't have to spend my whole day off cleaning my dumb house. I suppose I could just get paper plates and napkins and cups, but then I'd have to take the trash out way more often and that can't be good for the environment, landfills, etc. I hope our next house has a dishwasher.
Tonight is date night and I have no idea what we are going to do. We were talking about seeing a movie but I can't remember which one and I don't like that to be our date because there's no interation. Maybe if it stops raining we can go play mini golf or something.
I don't guess I have anything exciting to report, so I'm done here.
