Not a whole lot to write this morning... the week is going better. I spoke briefly with my father yesterday to see if they had planned their route yet (he hasn't), soo... I know he's planning on taking backroads and avoiding the interstates, despite the fact that I told him that taking the interstate would be much faster due to all the redlights. Of course Dad never listens to me. What do I know about cross country travel? So I need to email him basic directions from the highway he's intending on coming north on. Joy. I have yet to get a father's day card for him, I think I'm just going to make one this year. It's not like it'll make a difference in being homemade or purchased. It'll still be late, and his precious feelings will be hurt. Bleh. My father gets way too uptight over imagined slights sometimes... and then he accuses my mother and myself of being too emotional. Right.

I've noticed several things that need to be done over the next week and a half, and yet... here I sit, peacefully enjoying my morning. Next week, probably Thursday morning (to put it off as long as possible) I'm going to go ahead and dismantle my computer and pull all my junk off the kitchen table so we can use it for its intended purpose while my folks are visiting. Fun fun joy joy... means I'll have to clean the table. It's kind of... grimy...

I am really looking forward to seeing my folks... It's been almost two years since I saw my mother, and a year since my father packed me up to send me off to Michigan. None of us anticipated where I'd end up. All I can say is it's been an interesting two years. :p

Sitting here musing... I've decided that I'm going to go ahead and pay off the truck as soon as humanly possible. Its age and my poor credit gave me a 26% APR, which means that out of my monthly payments, only $100 or so is going towards principal, the other $200 towards interest. This is unaccaptable. I should be able to start throwing serious chunks of money at the debt in November... aiming to throw $700 a month, but that figure will probably be adjusted once I find out how much my share of rent and so forth at the new place is going to be. Once the truck is paid off, and I have about $6-7k in savings, trading the truck in for a new car. I think I've decided on the Honda Civic... but we'll see what looks good when I have a nice nestegg. One thing is for certain. The new car will have *damned* good gas milage. And a manual transmission. Those two items are priority. Spending $20 a week on gas when I live 13 miles from my office is unacceptable.

Bleh. I need to head to the grocery store either tonight after I get off from work or tomorrow morning. We're out of Skinny Cows, and I need more tortillas for my daily lunch treat. We did find the weight watchers version of skinny cows at Sams, which we were quite excited about.. only problem was that they only had vanilla. Oh well.. beggars can't be choosers.

I think now I am going to get off my rump and get some work done on the commission I was given... the faster I get it done, the faster I get paid. And right now, I need all the cash I can get. :p Unfortunately my

Bleh. I need to head to the grocery store either tonight after I get off from work or tomorrow morning. We're out of <a href="http://www.skinnycow.com/">Skinny Cows</a>, and I need more tortillas for my daily lunch treat. We did find the weight watchers version of skinny cows at Sams, which we were quite excited about.. only problem was that they only had vanilla. Oh well.. beggars can't be choosers.

And right now, I need all the cash I can get. :p Unfortunately my <a href="http://www.furbid.ws/cgi-bin/auction.pl?alluser&Kestral>auctions</a> on furbid are doing absolutely nothing, which seems par for the course. Lately all my offerings have been duds, which is why I was so surprised that someone bought my commission.

Furry fans are too damned fickle, says I. I wish I knew what would sell and sell well. ;) Although when I really think about it... if people like <a href="http://www.stardancer.org">Micah</a> have trouble selling, what makes me think I should have it easy? :P

Oh well. Time to get to work.. until later..

I suppose I'm not surprised by this.
