The State of the Sink, Etc.

CheneyDaily Grind2 Comments

This has been quite a strange week filled with bad luck and good. There was a full moon and I hear something is up with Mercury that could be making it so, but any rate I am just looking forward to getting out of work tonight and putting a cap on this, the first week of February.

I decided to postpone Elise’s birthday which was supposed to be on Saturday because we are supposed to get more snow – and because so few people RSVPed.

Apparently replying promptly to invitations is not something that people do very much anymore.

I received my first Netflix DVD in the mail and it was cracked into two pieces. (ER, Season 4 disc 1, because I have the first 3 seasons and have been wanting to watch all the rest again for years).

Two out of four days I worked this week I made less than $50 in tips, which is not conducive to living the lifestyle I’ve become accustomed to. I enjoy being poor, not poverty stricken.

I have THIS to deal with:

37-15But some things are on the up and up – for now.

I got approved for a 5.9% interest rate on the Jeep that I am planning on buying.

The Jeep that I’m planning on buying is STILL AVAILABLE even though I’ve been waiting a month to purchase it.

I took it for a test drive today and it’s AMAZING. A Jeep Liberty, limited edition. Sexy and black with a tan leather interior. LOVE.

And, maybe the best thing? I can trade in my old car, and not only will they give me a few hundred dollars for the privilege of letting them crush it, but I DON’T HAVE TO CLEAN ALL THE GARBAGE AND CRAP OUT OF IT BEFORE I LEAVE IT THERE FOREVER.

Which is a gift in and of itself, if you hadn’t guessed that by the state of my kitchen sink.

  1. Throw those dirty dishes and cups into the back seat of your old car just before trading it in, Cheney. Talk the Jeep salesman into adding a four-piece setting or no deal! Problem solved!
