Matt and I are moving on Saturday the 18th! We just moved four months ago into our current apartment, so it is a bit of a pain to be moving again so soon. But, we are moving into our house, so it is a lot more exciting of a move than moving into the apartment was.
I won't miss having to go up three flights of stairs everyday. I won't miss neighbors to share walls with. I won't miss lady who smokes in the stairwell or kids who play in the stairwell. Living in an apartment pretty much sucks all around. Houses are awesome!
So, we get to pack all week long and try to find places for the boxes that we pack. The apartment is a little full right now as we have Johnny and Sarah and all their stuff living with us. It really isn't so bad, it is just going to be very cluttery for the next week. I will take deep breaths though and try to get through it. Matt has been amazing; he was packing this weekend as I layed in bed sick. It is pretty much awesome having a proactive husband.
We close on Wednesday and will start moving boxes over in our cars on Thursday. Then, on Saturday, we will move all of the furniture. We will start around 9am for any and all those who want to pitch in and help us move. (hint hint to siblings in the area)
I've decided that I'm very excited for this move.

Boredom Continued

Here I am again, at work, with nothing to do. It really is not as much fun as one would think it would be. When I worked at Makau and had nothing to do, I played games online or watched all the strong bad emails or something. But, those sites are blocked at Dentrix, as is messenger. It is truly tragic.

I've decided to just write a style guide for all of our manuals here at Dentrix and that will occupy my time for a little while. Though it is not all the thrill that it sounds like, it is something to do so that I appear busy.

Yesterday, Baby came over and we got pizza and watched Freedom Writers and Bridge to Terabithia. I really enjoyed Freedom Writers though it was a typical "teacher makes dumb/messed up kids into smart kids with unique teaching methods" film.

I thought that Bridge to Terabithia was an interesting film, but Baby and Matt hated it. I know that it was based off of a book and probably made a lot more sense in the book. I found it to be an entertaining film with an interesting idea, but it took a weird turn 3/4 of the way through the movie and I didn't really like it after that.

Much like Bridge to Terabithia was Premonition. I had a fairly interesting premise and was going okay despite the inconsistencies and then, 3/4 of the way through, a new plot line was introduced and it was very confusing. It was like the film makers didn't know why she was having premonitions, so they just made something up at the last minute and then ended it. It was lame. Stupid Sandra Bullok.

Tomorrow Matt and I are going to see Borne Ultimatum. Hopefully, it is more awesomer than the movies we have seen recently.

Bored Now

Okay, so things are more than a little slow at work today. In fact, I really have nothing to do. I haven't really had work for two days, but I've been keeping it on the DL so that I don't get givem made up work. I've been trying to find work for myself to do, but it sometimes is really boring. For instance, yesterday I spent three hours looking at fonts and trying to decide what would be a good standard for the Dentrix manuals. As entertaining as fonts are, it is a true challenge of the underachiever to make that last for three hours.

I think that I will milk the font thing for at least half of the day today though because there really isn't much going on. Plus, Erin isn't here and my boss isn't here, so, that is a large majority of the team that is just gone.

Normally, in times like these, I would watch Homestarrunner or some tv on my computer, but alas that such things have been banned from the department. So, I thought that I might blog. But, unfortunately, I type too darn fast and this has only taken me like five minutes to write. Curse my excessive writing skills!

The truly ironic part, or maybe it is just the unfair part, is that Matt is super busy at work as of late. Especially today, today he has to stay at work until 8pm because it is a working night. This means that not only do I get to be bored at work, but after work I get to go home and be bored some more. Maybe I'll clean to ebb the boredom. Ha! Na, I'm not gonna clean.

These are the times that I miss messenger. When I had messenger at Makau (against rules) I was able to just chat with my friends during slow times. And, my computer wasn't facing a hallway, so it was a lot easier to get away with stuff. Now, both of my computers are visible from the very populated hallway and the HR staff here are often compared to natzis. They like to patrol the hallways to make sure that everyone is working. It is a little bit funny. And, it only occurs on the third floor in the east section because that is where they higher ups offices are. I think that it is truly lame that my department got stuck on this floor in this location. When we grow out of our cubicles, I'm hoping that they move us.

Well, I've got some serious non-working to do, so I ought to depart. Sigh.

Honeymoon... For Real This Time

So, Matt and I are going on our honeymoon, for real this time... hopefully. We are planning on going to Orlando, FL for a week at the end of August.

I realize that this news is not as exciting as Mike getting married or Marie finally getting doors in her house, but it is big for me. I'm all very excited to actually take a trip on an airplane and everything with my Matt-face for the first time. I think it will be buckets of fun without the parasital Mexicoyness.

Nothing much else going on right now. We are still in the process of buying our house. The inspection was yesterday and it went really well! We are hoping to get closed on this as soon as possible so that we can just be done and move in. I love realestate agents by the way. I would hate this process even more if I had to do all the calling back and forth and the paperwork myself. I think we would never buy a house if we had to do all the work ourselves. That is why we pay other people to do it for us!

Oh, and I miss Lisa. She should most likely ditch work and come see me.
