spent the entire overcast afternoon at the lake..most of that time spent on the Thackston's boat...which means i unknowingly got sunburned a little bit..but its pink, rather than red..and its not a large portion ot the becca having been burnt...and it will go back to a nice whiteness sooner than you would think possible.

tonight i will sleep very well..because days of water have that effect

tomorrow i'll see the new door to the new room in the store..i hope its not messy in the morning..and i hope it wont be long till we finish the floors in there

tomorrow i get to go swing dancing again (as previously excited enough to post it twice)

and tomorrow i get to have an old friend move into town...i think this is the most fun news in this entry

1. my car had worse problems than just a hose broken..but not nearly as bad as an entire far, anyhow.
it was a broken transmission *fluid hose*...caused by a short somewhere which was also fixed...and a stuck accelerator cable--which could have been a much worse issue... my brother had the exact same problem on his '76 oldsmobile when we lived in new orleans..but it made his car want to go faster and faster..where mine made the car barely want to go at all.
--at any will now the THURSDAY before i see my car again,...bwahh! i miss driving my own car!
1.b. im in the market to sell her and get something new(er)...pobably another honda, though :)

2. speaking of thursdays....its swing dance night with first pres :)

3. tomorrow we're closing the store early and having a work party at the lake! horray! i cant believe its almost july and i havent YET gone to the lake this year. its the saddest circumstance in which to find myself.

4. i WILL get to tybee island to see jason and jennifer in july. i WILL. somehow it will fit into the schedule, and i will get there. oooo..and its the beach, too!

5. im not feeling real comfortable with going to the eisley concert this weekend. im thinking its because of the craziness at work..with people swapping and switching and leaving and comming and walls comming down and computers being strange..yeah..i just dont feel like i should go to this one. it doesnt matter how much i love the seeing the unimportance far outweigh its importance this go-round.

6. my roommate is getting married next saturday. she's packing up all of her things now and will probably move out of the house this weekend...move her stuff into their new apatment and move herself into her parents house for a week.

7. my other roommate is going to the dominican republic for two weeks..leaving this friday.

8. i think i'll start packing things up, for myself..too. even though i haven't yet selected a house for which to purchase...

it *may* just have been a fluid hose
which would be awesome

it will take a couple of days and a little over a hundered dollars for my uncle's shop to get the part and put it on...and then we'll see if that's the only problem.

i'll probably still keep my eyes open for a prevent me from being completely carless and looking. its hard to find a car when you cant drive anywhere to look at them. its just getting rides to work for a couple of days

i was a baby here

because i was hounded to update

i cant remember anymore what i've said in case i havent said it yet considering buying a place in which to live!

ive looked at probably a dozen or so places in person..and every time we look, i find things i hate or things i love..and it helps narrow down what i'm willing to invest in. its realy quite funny how much my scope has narrowed since the first trip out to view houses. at first i was so excited that everything looked amazing to my newly glazed over with wishes eyes...i'm becomming much more objective now, as the novelty wears off and reality becomes me.

i sat down yesterday afternoon with my mom and she helped me figure out how much money i can comfortably spare in this. she mentioned things to figure into my budget that hadnt realy crossed my figuring in the medical insurance that i do not have yet...and counting concerts and trips in as part of my alloted usable money (because i shouldnt have a nice place to live in and never the money to enjoy doing things i like outside of the house)

so now im having fun playing with numbers in my corel sure the novelty of that will wear off, too..before long.

it was a greatly needed reality check, for certain.
it brought down my price cap a good deal...but i was already aware that the cap the mortgage lady had given me when i first met with her to discus my options was a bit higher than what i in reality could do.

i havent given up hope, though...because i know of a girl living in a 2 bedroom 2 bath townhouse in the area i realy want to move into...and i know for a fact that she got her's within my budget. its just a mater of finding those as soon as they are available.
pray if you do...donate money, if you dont!

(there ya go, tom..happy now? i updated)
