Today has been pretty awesome.
Except for our softswitch flipping out for about 20 minutes or so. I'll have to figure out what the hell caused that.
After today's installment of "Two strong dudes and a large truck", it looks like our old house may in fact be ready to have the keys handed over by the 1st. If not, I may be able to talk a few days out of the landlord for a "almost as good as you gave it to me" shape, as it's beneficial to all parties that way. Either way, this following week will be the last time I need to go there, and while I liked the place when I had it, I'm glad to be in my new place and not have to deal with the constraints of the old one anymore.
Plus side: We took half a fucking moving truck packed solid worth of shit, and I lost no usable living space in my house after the move was complete. None. Almost 100% of it went to the garage to be cleaned and sorted, or was packed into the room I had set aside for storing items in the basement. I was quite pleased.
I wanted to do a max paynesque post where I start with the end, and then go back to the beginning describing how things got to this point, but i don't have the desire.
We showed up for Adam's surprise birthday party last weekend.
Becky did *huge* amounts of work in the last week preparing us for the moving people this weekend. Yay!
My foot (see post about xrays about 2-3 weeks ago) hasn't been feeling any better than it was the day it happened almost 2 months ago. I may need a second opinion on what damage has been done to it. My back hurts badly too, but I think that overdoing it on this move has been a primary factor. I'll leave it alone for a couple of weeks and see if taking it easy will make it better.
I've been sleeping well at nights for the past couple. Yay?
I got a respectable raise and a very generous bonus this month too. Paying my first mortgage payment should be even easier than anticipated, which pleases me greatly as I've been sorta stretched tight by paying utilities at two places, etc. Once everything settles down it will be a non issue, but when I'm going out and buying refrigerators and crap it messes up the budget a tiny bit in the short term, and this easily nullifies that.
I'm tired but happy. In 20 days I'll have been married a year. I can't believe that. But it's been a great year thus far, and things are only looking better. Where did the time go?
