At a concert in Burnaby Canada right now. Weezer and Panic at the Disco. I hate vancouver.

Hopefully this time will be the charm, Dagg.  Yeesh, can't catch a break. 

You know, in looking at all the crap that's been dumped on me in my life lately and several others, it's like... our lives are already shattered and we're trying to pick up the pieces and as we're picking up the pieces something else gets destroyed leaving more pieces to pick up and it's like Sisyphus endlessly pushing a rock up a hill.  Like, throw us a bone here, ya know? 

Thanks! We actually found one today. We are signing the papers tomorrow to make it ours contingent on financing. We won't close until end of September or start of October because I need to have a few paychecks to show and they haven't finished the house yet. So..that was easier than expected.

Now that I have a job lined up it's time to start house searching again. Blech

Got a job offer today. It doesn't start until the 8th of August. I am making less than my previous job.. But I was at my previous job for nearly 8 years. I will just have to climb that corporate ladder again.

Congrats, man! I hope you end up liking it at least as much as your previous job, or if not that you get a chance to quickly move on to something else you DO enjoy as much.

Thanks. It's what I did with my old company when I started there. It's the same industry ad well and they use the same software. So I don't see it going terribly. I should be able to move up in a year.

My wife, son, and I have been playing a lot. We can't seem to figure out one thing though...we go to a gym....battle...get the opposing pokemon down to nothing and then...it freezes. We can't seem to move onto the next pokemon at the gym, or take over the gym.

I caught a meowth and jigglypuff while shopping at Costco.

Finding a job after nearly 8 years at the same place is hard. I have sent my resume to quite a few places. Haven't heard back from more than 2. Yay for unemployment at least... Sigh

So it was announced...and actually came out. I have been playing this game for a week now and I am really really enjoying it. If I had one gripe it would be leveling a new character or troop after your main team is 20+ is a bit cumbersome.

Having a job you love is pretty rare.

Yeah. I absolutely loved my job. I honestly wanted to do it for another 20 years and retire. I didn't make amazing money but I loved what I did.

Thanks folks. It is...rough...at the moment. I am already redoing my resume and sending it out to jobs. It puts our house on hold but in a few months we can look again if I can find a job. Luckily I did get a sweet severance package. They are also paying me until the end of the month, plus I have about 80 hours of paid time off that will be added. We aren't in the immediate threat of losing everything, but it will eat into our savings a bit.

Good news everyone! You don't have to read about me buying a house anymore and being annoyingly excited for it....




because I was just let go from my job because they reorganized my department.

Still waiting for the bank to send back the paperwork. They had 48 hours to respond. It has been 96. Our recourse is to not buy the house. And that isn't happening so they have all the leverage. Our realtor is confident that we will hear tomorrow.


Our first purchase as husband and wife was to get a king size memory foam mattress. It is amazing. By the way... Two full. Sized beds equals a king

I am sure you looked but 8-1&keywords=breath+of+fire+dragon+quarter $17 is probably about as good as it gets.

I have gotten back into DDO and I am playing on Sarlona. Does anyone else play? It's free... Sorta. Chunks of the game are behind a pay wall. Overall it's a  lot of fun though.

Offer was accepted for the house. Now we start the process of the mortgage
