Well I had an interesting day. Woke up, drank water, poured coffee, started up my pc, smoked a cigarette, and started on school. Started work, kissed Snack Monkey goodbye for the day and then I had a very interesting work-related call. I can't go into the details and it's quite likely none of you would really want me to anyway but the short version is my new boss (yep, didn't see that coming!) wanted to come over and introduce himself. I went frantic changing out of my jammies, pulling my hair back, cleaning up the living room and my office as best I could, picking up the cigarette butts on the balcony that had bounced off the rim of the ashtray instead of going in like they're supposed to and just generally picking up the average daily clutter. It was a very long, informative meeting that I am feeling positive about but led to a MOUNTAIN of work that needs to be done to transition the company for new ownership and most, if not all, of it is falling on my shoulders. There was so much to be done that it was 3 pm before I knew it and I'd had NOTHING but coffee and water so I snarfed the leftover panini from last night, cold, with one hand while still working at my computer with the other and gulped down some water. No sooner did I finally wrap that up for the day (though I have some more things that need doing tomorrow) than the phone rang and it was my mortgage guy wanting to discuss how my savings account is looking and where we're at in that process; let me know what I'm pre-qualified for as well as what I could afford to pay for a home and still keep the payments where I want them. I'm qualified for 100,000 but I want lower monthly payments so he thinks I should stick to 90,000 or less. Snackers and I have been looking at houses that are 50,000 - 60,000 so that gives us lot's of wiggle room! YAY! I was waaaay too exhausted to cook so we went out and the meal was so much less good than so-so. Just not impressed at all but whatev, at least I'm not hungry and all I care about right now I crashing.
All in all it was a positive day but highly adrenalin filled and now that the adrenalin is wearing off I am completely and unbelievably exhausted ... and I still have more school work that I have to get done tonight. First I have to go through all my paperwork to find my student loan statements and fax them to my mortgage guy - then school. Then there is no way in hell I'm exercising tonight; I am going to take a nice cold bath because it's hot as hell in this apartment but I refuse to turn on the A/C and ruin the string of beautifully low power bill's I've had lately, and then I'm going to curl up with a book and fall asleep before I finish the first chapter.
