Catching Up

Tuesday, August 5th, 2003 · 2 Comments

Starting to feel better today. More on top of stuff. Returned my camera phone since the AT&T service was horrible. If you can help it, don’t get service with them. Picked up quite a bit around the house. It’s looking and feeling much better, but still not totally there. Got rid of all the boxes and packing material, so at least we can walk through the apartment now.

Still taking in all the wedding stuff. All these photos. I was just browsing through some of what we have on Ofoto and realized that we haven’t even looked through everything yet. In fact, there are still two 128MB memory cards of Hawaii photos yet to be transferred to computer and uploaded. So much to do, so little time.

So many projects. My wife (it’s great to be able to say that) tallied up what each of us spent personally on wedding-related expenses. Not even counting what went on our shared credit card, it’s pretty intense. Glad those expenditures are over for now.

Yesterday we gave the dogs baths. I think I forgot to mention that when I wrote yesterday. So now they’re mostly clean.

Slowly getting caught up at work, so that’s good, I guess.

Feeling hot tonight. Legs are sweaty. I hate that.

We’re still finding mold and stinky smells in our closet. I talked to our landlord today. His solution for everything: Paint. He suspects the water heater in the basement (who knew we had one of those in this building?) may be leaking. He’s supposed to look at that. And maybe bring us some of us this mold-fighting paint. I also told him we wanted to pay less rent, given that there’s a 2-bedroom directly across the street that’s going for $1,500. We have a 1 bedroom, albeit with a private yard, and we pay more than that. He said he’d get back to me. Apparently “everyone” has been asking him to lower rents, too. It would be nice to save some bucks.

We did one load of many on the laundry front tonight, but still lots more to go there.

This is quite the week. We have a dinner party to attend with a bunch of friends this Saturday — a joint birthday affair for Katie, Jeanine, Tiffany — that I’m looking forward to. That should be lots of fun.

Weekend after this one we have at least a couple events lined up already, too — a party for Jen’s coworker’s wife and a wine tasting party at Jane and Sarah’s; those are always good.

The fun never ends. Hopefully I’ll feel more on top of things before long. Have a couple lunches this week with friends — tomorrow and Thursday. Good breaks from the office. Up in Marin, I usually do my own thing for lunch.

Caught up on this past weekend’s Sex and the City and Real Time with Bill Maher tonight — in between all the clean-up activities.

    Hey man, don’t diss AT&T too much. It’s the only service that works at my dad’s house in Sacramento or my lovely vacation home up in Lakeport. Verizon and Sprint both have noooooo signal.

    I guess a cell phone service must match one’s personality and lifestyle. Sprint is the best for me. It works everywhere I need, including upstate NY. There was 0 signal there on the AT&T phone.
