One of my students needed to record an audition tonight, so I took my microphone and Macbook over there so we could record. 4 hours later, and I’m finally home. Amount they paid me for my time: $0.
Facebook, You Suck!– Me, lamenting the fact that Facebook is running crazy slow today.
We have to be at the model house in 2 hours, and honestly, I haven’t been this nervous since the day I proposed to Jamie.
- Take the dog to get a haircut (the reason I’m up so early - the dog’s appointment is at 8am). - Sign paperwork to build a house. - Write largest check I’ve ever written. - Take picture where our new home will be. - Teach clarinet lesson - Celebrate the excitingness by either playing mini-golf (free) or going to the Indians game (not free).
Grr to Lesson Students
I teach private clarinet lessons. I hate it when I drive to one of my students’ houses, and they say “Oh my mom didn’t call you? We need to cancel today.” I still charge people for these lessons. If I drive over there and you can’t have a lesson, you still pay. It’s wasting my time.
The builder accepted our offer for the house. We will be going in to sign papers in the next couple of days! Very excited right now.
Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him...– Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (via harrypotterismylife) (via jhesset-hime)
A Revised Offer
I sent a scathing email to our realtor for him to use in our next offer to our builder, dispelling all their arguments for why they have no room to negotiate. My favorite was: “The reduction in base prices by nearly $25-30k was again a direct reflection of the market, reduction in material costs and a reduction in labor through our employed subcontractors. We are at cost on the base prices...
Wicked : A New Musical TN Perf Arts Ctr Andrew Jackson Hall, Nashville, TN...– Beth & I have pushed off seeing anything at TPAC since we moved. Both of us have wanted to see Wicked for a long time and decided that even though money is tight now, we wouldn’t have the option to buy the tickets when September rolls around. Now or never… (via neuski) You will love it! One of...
fmylife: Today, was my music recital. I was playing and sneezed really loud into my saxophone which made the mouthpiece blurt out of my mouth. I have a neck strap and as the saxophone came back towards me the mouthpiece hit me in the head. I knocked myself out in front of the audience. FML
The builder did not accept our offer, and didn’t even budge at all on price. Time to play hardball.
fmylife: Today, my mother came up to me a swim meet and shouted to me in the bleachers “If you have to go potty, go now because there is a long line!”. I’m seventeen. FML Something my mom would have done when I was 17.
We’ve got a trip to Cedar Point with our photographers to do our engagment photos. We really may actually get married. It’s crazy.
It’s the kind of shot that makes you forget about that Jordan fella…– -Sportscenter Anchor. I strongly disagree. Jordan made tons of these types of shots. LeBron didn’t even make his first game-winner until this season. Yes, last night’s shot was awesome. But it does not surpass Jordan.
junior02157: The Starlight Experience on the Frontier Trail makes about as much sense as the plot to Disaster Transport. Way too many Christmas lights strewn through the trees, a few Peanuts floats shoved in the middle of the midway, and a Yanni soundtrack playing in the background. What were they thinking? The barn and the cabins look nice with their red, white, and blue lights. The trees...
1st Step Complete
We got pre-approved.
I am very distracted at work today. I am waiting to hear back from our builder if they accepted our offer, and am also waiting to hear back from the bank for pre-approval, but that shouldn’t be a problem, hopefully. To top it off, I am ready for a three day weekend and engagement photos @ CP on Monday!
jamiea: Our realtor sent in an offer last night to the builder’s agent to begin negotiations for our house. He heard back today - she didn’t remember the last quote she sent us. Our realtor had to provide it to her. She didn’t say anything about the offer, lot, or requests. Is this good or bad? I still can’t believe she didn’t remember the last quote or have it on file (she sent it to us as...
For me, it’s not really about what happens tonight. It’s about tomorrow.– Adam Lambert watch out, Kris Allen… (via jhesset-hime)
Best. Idol. Ever.
KISS, Queen, Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, etc. The only thing that would have made it better is if Adam would have won. Oh well - he doesn’t have to release the terrible Kara song now. Adam FTW.
Finally got through
Voted with my phone and Jamie’s at the same time. I was a voting machine. One that doesn’t have hanging chads.
We Cannot Complete Your Call...
I still haven't gotten through for Adam.
I need to vote.
I would say that Hussein Obama supporters are going to Hell, but most of them...– -Status of a friend on Facebook. Not even sure what to say about that.
Life is Good
- Jamie and I are both working and making money. - We are about to put an offer in for building a house. - The weather is nice outside. - Cedar Point opens today. Life is good.
Some seriously funny Barack Obama commentary.
