Hey guys! So today was big trivia day. We started out with a near perfect score in the first half. Then everything went wrong. First, the place where the tournament was held, had no air conditioning and there were about 60 people in this small room together. It was also very hot outside so before we were even halfway done I felt like I was going to either throw up or pass out, it was bad. At that point we were missing more questions as well. To give a little background this was a statewide tournament and they were asking the same questions to teams in two other cities in out state. To make a long story short, we did not place in the money. The good news is, two of the teams from our town placed! One got first and the other got third so that was pretty awesome. Then a couple hours after that, we went to the Bahnhof to have dinner with one of our friends who is moving out of town. That was very fun. They had a new honey custard cake dessert that was fabulous. Then after that we just cruised around for a bit and then took a walk through the park since it was still really warm outside. We talked about a few things that have been bothering me like the whole house issue, and the whole where is my life going thing that I feel like I will always struggle with. I have a general idea of what I want out of my life, but how I’m going to balance all of those things together in reality is what continues to puzzle me. I’ve written about this before, but my thoughts always get deep like this when my period is about to start lol. It’s like a reminder, hey, time is not standing still, you have to figure this shit out! It’s really sobering and at times very depressing. I think the depression is also its own period symptom I deal with though. It’s hard enough for me to think straight right now as it is, but its like there’s a negative spin on everything that comes to mind. It sucks. Other than that, it was a wonderful night. We stopped a few times to talk to some of his friends we saw along the way. We also saw one of his friends that’s been a friend of my family’s for a while now and it was nice to catch up with him. We just got back to the house a few minutes ago. We have work in the morning, but we don’t go in until 11 so its not a big deal to go to bed a bit late. I’ve also realized that I really have to remember to choose my battles when it comes to what I let stress me out. If I end up tired in the morning, it does not matter because I will be tired in the morning no matter how much sleep I get lol its just my personality. I’ve learned that it helps a lot to be able to let some things go. On that note, I have to get some things done before bed, so I will be back tomorrow. Bye Guys!
Hey guys! So today I am a little all over the place. First of all, its getting to be that time of the month where my emotions start spiraling out of whack before my period comes crashing in, so there’s that. Then, we heard back from the loan agent today. It was not the news we were hoping for, it was not good news at all actually. We were hoping that, best case scenario, they would give us enough to get the new house. Worst case scenario, they would give us just enough to pay off and do some repairs to this house. As I should have expected, we cannot afford the new house. They will not give us a loan that’s even big enough to pay off and repair this house. We qualify for just enough to pay off the house with about 10 grand leftover, so yes it would be payed for, but it would also remain in crap shape. I jokingly suggested to Tommy that we pay off the house and use the leftover money to take a trip to Tokyo. He thought I was joking, but seriously, I would love to do that lol. I would love to get something fun out of all this stress. So we’re not sure what to do about the house as of yet. Also, my health issue that’s recently came about is persisting and possibly getting worse. On top of everything, people were just jerks on the phone today. That’s never fun. So all in all today really took the wind right out of me. I felt literally deflated as I was leaving work today. Like a sad balloon. I didn’t mean to bring you guys down lol that’s just where I’m at today. So tomorrow is big money trivia, and I’m really excited but also nervous. Well guys I will get back with you tomorrow. Bye!
Hey guys! So today we looked at the house again. I love it. He really likes it, but he’s still torn just because of his sentimental ties to this house. We actually took the next step and spoke to someone at a bank about what kind of loan we could get and an estimate of what our monthly payments would look like. We don’t have any solid numbers yet, she has to get back to us. Basically we have decided that based on what she says, if we can afford it, we’ll do it, if not we’ll just basically fix everything in this house lol. I really hope we can afford the new house though, just because we can fix the house all we want, but we can’t fix the neighborhood. Either way its left us pretty stressed out lol. It also does not help that I have had a possible health issue recently. I won’t go into details but I definitely have to see a doctor which is also stressful. We have work tomorrow and then we have the big trivia tournament Saturday. That is actually being held in town which is great because while we love an out of town trip, we definitely need to save money which is impossible if we go out of town lol. Its a lot less stress too. We did not end up going to trivia today just because our friends were busy and we’re better as a team so we just decided to skip it. We still had a good evening though. We are officially caught up on the Ash Vs. Evil Dead on Starz. Its a great show. Well guys its gotten pretty late here, so I’m headed to bed. I’ll keep you updated on the house situation. Bye!
Hey guys! So its K-pop day! Today I will posting a song from a girl group called brave Girls. They are managed by the entertainment company Brave Entertainment. They started out in 2011 with 5 members and has since changed out a few members and is at 7 currently. They have a few songs I really like. This one is my favorite, its called Rollin’ . Here is a pic of the group and the video. Enjoy!
Hey guys! So today was the first day of our weekend. It was alright but things have been really stressful around the house lately with the possible moving issue and everything that comes with that. It was still a pretty good day though. We did place third in trivia which is nice. I don’t have too much to talk about today, but as promised here are the pics I took from the festival. Enjoy!
Hey guys! So first I wanted to apologize, I did not post yesterday. I was going to at first, but then I just lost the energy lol. I’ll explain further in a bit. So, I just wanted to give a big shout out because I reached 20 followers today! I am so happy and so grateful to you guys for caring enough to read my daily ramblings lol. Thank you guys so much! To explain why I did not post yesterday, I’ll start from the beginning. We woke up super excited because it was the day of the beer and tater tots festival. Then we realized there were signs all along our street saying the streets were going to be swept and we had to move our cars. So at the risk of being late to the festival, we had to find a spot for all 3 of our cars, because we were riding with our friends. It normally would not have been a big deal, but our old 80’s Volkswagen does not have the best battery and we had to jump him from the jeep to get it going enough to move it to the side street. Then we rode up to Columbus. I always love the car ride up there. It’s almost 3 hours 1 way. I just love long car rides in general lol. Plus it was a gorgeous day, super sunny and very hot. It also always reminds me how beautiful all the Ohio farmland is. Miles and miles of crops and animals, always takes my breath away. So when we got there the city was beautiful as usual. The festival was at a park in the middle of town. It was really fun. I had several different varieties of tater tots, and I also had a hard cider from one of the beer vendors that was very good. Over all it was just fun to be out in the sun in the big city. I loved it. I took a couple photos. I’ll be posting those tomorrow. So we got home, and Tommy and I had a very long discussion regarding the house situation. In which I basically told him we told him we don’t have to move, but if we don’t move, we have to get the very best security system humanly possible. It was not up for debate. So after that discussion I was just very mentally exhausted and that is why I did not post anything. Although I think based on his thoughts today, he is ready to move. We have set up a second appointment for the particular house we have really liked. I’m excited but I’m not getting my hopes up in case he backs out, or we make an offer and they don’t take it, really anything could go wrong, so I’m mentally preparing myself. Today was pretty hectic as well. So it is super late here, so I’m going to head to bed, I’ll be back tomorrow. Bye Guys!
Hey guys! So today was a pretty average day at work. So in between calls Tommy and I spent some time discussing the new house thing. He keeps going back to how much cheaper and easier it would be to not move, and I realize this, but no matter how many repairs we do to the house, we can’t fix the neighborhood. The whole reason we are moving is that we cannot trust the neighborhood anymore. He just has a connection with the house and keeps clinging to it. He says we can pay this house off in five years and then move, but in my opinion it’s pointless to throw down another 50 grand on a house you won’t be staying in long term. I also just don’t want to wait five years to start a family, or make bigger plans. I understand sentimental value, but I also know how heartbroken he would be if some junkie broke into the house and stole one of his guitars. I’m not trying to dog my BF, I’m just frustrated about the whole situation lol. So for now we are in the same stalemate about the house thing. In other more positive news, tomorrow is the beer and tater tots festival! I don’t care about the beer, but I love tater tots with a passion. I also love any excuse to go to Columbus. (I also will take any chance to get off work lol) Well guys I have to be up early because its a pretty long drive, so I’m headed to bed, but I’ll catch up with you guys tomorrow. Bye!
