    My day started at 4am when my 8 year old came to my bedroom with a fever. It brightened considerably when I walked into the garage a few hours later with his brother to do the morning school run and I realized that there were only 2 of us today. It just so happens I have a 2 seat car that I like to drive and usually can't because I have too many passengers. My kindergartener got dropped off at school in the Ferrari.

    My oldest has strep though.

    This thread will stop right now if this looks like a gary green thread.

    I just thought it would polite to ask how everyones day went like a true Fcar family should. But if this looks like a GG thread (screw that sob) then no one type past this post.

    It's been a sh_tty day, through and through; started at 8-something this morning and has been a solid sh_tty since... Yesterday was sh_tty, too, so i guess today sorta compliments yesterday... Tomorrow is looking pretty sh_tty too, so that will probably round out the week... Nice thread...

    My day has been a pisser too (No pun intended Bruce).

    Starts off with my wife calling me at work to tell me that the ear specialist that my daughter saw to see if she needs tubes put it because of ear infections told her that she can't do the surgery for 3 weeks because she is too busy and this is after her normal Dr told us to get her in there ASAP. What's with some of these DR's (No offese to any F-chat DR's)

    Pretty good day for me.

    This week has been finals week...the last week of my first semester in school. Woke up at 7:20 today...left for school at 7:35...I guess you could say I was a bit lazy this morning :) Last day of school for me and one last final to go: my chemistry final. Luckily my studying paid off and I believe I did really well! More than enough to keep my straight As. So tonight, I am going to sit back, relax, and do nothing...Feels great to be done!

    The new semester starts on Tuesday.

    Well it was slow until I went to this bar in Key West, see.

    They were having a wet T shirt contest, and this blonde figured she could win at least $5, if she ..............

    I suspect some Tequila shots were involved.

    Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings! TTFN

    Nothing special today, more good than bad.

    1) Real estate agent calls and thinks Jennie and I can put the land/house on the market earlier than we thought. Also is optimistic we can make some money on the deal.

    2) Called mortgage company and the financing looks really good. We can afford a more expensive house than I originally thought, mainly because I didn't realize interest rates were low as 5% for 15 year and 5.35% for 30 year.

    3) Had a good one on one with my new boss this morning. It's a new org, so while the VP's try to figure out what our new group is all about I'm catching up on things and spending more time on FC.

    4) After 3 workout days in a row (including a two a day yesterday) I have today off!

    5) My $100 has almost made it into my www.pokerroom.com account so I can play for real money!

    6) Found out there's a HHH this Saturday. Don't ask if you don't know, but I'm really happy about that! Nothing like running miles around private property drunk with women flashing everywhere. I ain't lying. :)

    7) Sprint stock (FON & PCS) has had a great run the past few weeks. My 401k is up 40-50%. Yesterday I decided not to have 100% of my retirement tied up in one company that tried to off shore my ass to India and as of today my retirement is a little better diversified.

    ---

    Bad news is I'm bored to death and I'm not looking forward to getting up tomorrow at 5am for swim practice.

    Why buy a more expensive house merely because you can afford it...? Not sure if that's what you'll do, but if it is, why...? If i'm being too personal, let me know, but i'm just wondering... It seems that a lot of people do this... Buy more than they need merely because they can get the loan...

    We're still going to get a much less expensive house than the bank thinks we can afford. Just nice knowing we can, even if we don't use it. Jennie and I are pretty set exactly what we want, but another $25k can get a much nicer what we want. :)

    i see... i know once you're approved for something and payments are being made and blah blah blah, then you can always sell the house, pay off the remainder of the loan and use the money for whatever, but i wonder about people who QUALIFY for a loan for buy, let's say, a 1/4 million dollar home, do that whole mortgage thing, then are in dire need of money and want to sell the house, but real estate might suck at the time or in that area, then they're screwed...

    Hey, good luck with finding a house, by the way... You work hard, you deserve at least a garage... (you know, something completely enclosed, with a door)... Your new place might even have tape-less and card board-less windows...! (Ok, ok, let's not get ahead of ourselves here...:D)

    I waited a while to reply to this one but here is my small summary. It took three alarms to drag me out of bed today instead of the typical two. Fifty minute drive was pretty uneventful except for passing a dead skunk with the windows down. That sure will wake you up. Got to work wit plans to party later on tonight but found out inventory is scheduled for 5 and I'll be getting out late. Cancelled party plans and began pouting about the inventory which consist of several hours of nothing but monotonous number keying. However around 3 I recieved an email stating inventory is rescheduled for February and I'm off the hook. Plans are back on which include potential enormous amounts of tequila and intoxicated woman at the bars. So far so good but if you ask me this question tomorrow I might not even be able to reply due to headache.

    Well, the big one can always be found lurking within striking distance of Jennie. :D

    Considering the 1.5 acres, 100 trees, old shed, and all the mice I'm willing to bet our snake population may be up in the dozens. They can stay where they are.

    Let's see, spent 135 min at the doctor (and yes, we had an appointment!) with my 8 year old son - his first ever visit to the doctor for an illness and now I remember why we never bothered before. What a waste of time!

    This was followed by the cancellation of a meeting with a firm that wants to buy my dad's accounting firm (he passed away last week at age 58 from brain cancer) but it's of questional legality for me to sell anything right now anyway... though it's hard to determine what exactly I'd be selling since he was operating as a sole proprietorship and I guess we'd be selling the right to contact all his clients and ask them to move their business which of course they are under no obligation to do so but it's almost tax season and they'll need to go somewhere. Basically, it's an asset that only has value for about another month: by then all the clients will have fled to get their taxes done elsewhere, so if we're going to sell it needs to happen now, not once we're in probate proceedings and I have my letters. In other words, I need to spend time on the phone with some lawyers. Gee, ain't this fun.

    Somewhere along the line I took about two dozen phone calls planning and informing people about the memorial services for a 38 year old friend of 23 years who died at his san francisco house over the weekend.

    Man, the last two weeks have just sucked!
