happy valentine's eve! [Feb. 13th, 2006|10:20 pm]
bradley
let's see, what have i done today...
i felted my first hat! it's made out of alpaca and it's for my mom. it's awesome! and furry! i've also got a few other projects in the works, one being to make more fine crocheted things, perhaps snowflakes or doilies, and another to complete a baby blanket. i'm crocheting it around and around with lacey-looking stitches worked in... if i actually finish it (aka, complete something at least sixteen inches across--right now it's about four, and ideally, it'll be at least three feet across), i'll post some pics.
joey and i went to the bank to give them some more recent pay stubs and w2s and such, since the last time we were there to get certified for our mortgage was about, oh, maybe a year ago. when the house was three weeks away from being finished... just like it is now. still, i've allowed myself to get more excited about the house, and its location: we are in a prime downtown area that is seeing a lot of new development, and we can walk right around the corner (literally!) to a bar featured on UZTV! love it like you should.
now tori is here, back from eating some broccoli with yaya, and perhaps is going to start typing. her favorite keys are the caps lock, the shift, the function and control keys, and the space bar if a dvd is playing and she can make it play and pause over and over again. and she's such a good walker! she's gone from walking three steps between welcoming arms to walking the length of the house unassisted in about a week! she seems a little tired, though--she's stumbling a bit. perhaps it's time for bath and bed.

lots of exciting stuff, indeed. the house is three weeks away---like it has been many times in the past. but hopefully this time it's for real! our contract addendum says on or before february 28th, but we don't believe that--but i think it could be before the end of march. they did some "landscaping" today--put down lots of pine straw around a few scrawny bushes and placed two dozen squares of dead-looking grass, and they cleaned up the palmetto (that i despise) a little bit.

mmmm. what'd you have? there's this buffet here in town now where we can get sushi that is a lot like yakuen (sp??) sushi--cheap sushi that you get on a conveyer belt for 100 yen a plate. (about a dollar). we would usually get six or seven plates... actually, if you watch joey's zombie movie, you can see one of those restaurants! the place here needs a conveyer belt, though--who wants to get up for their cheap sushi??

Hey! Good to see you as it were. I love Tori's favorite keys: she knows where the action is.

As for the house, at least it sounds worth the wait. I hope they get their act together and just finish the damn thing.

How's grad school going? Do you finish this semester or at the end of summer?

grad school--i'll finish after the summer. there was a slight problem with graduating after the spring, that problem being that i didn't realize they charged a flat tuition rate for taking between nine and fifteen hours... and i was only taking nine, so that rate was about four thousand dollars more than i would have to pay by credit hour. so, i split them--two for this spring, one for this summer.

Yikes. That's higher education for ya. I've always found the credit hour system confusing. VC just had units... 1 unit=1 class with the occasional .5 unit 1/2 class. Sounds like your plan is well worth drawing it out a couple more months though.
