Didn't really do too much. Cable guy came right at noon and hooked up the main tv with digital and the 2nd tv with expanded basic. Very cool. He didn't have the DVR box, but will come by on Thursday with it.
Late afternoon I went out and saw "Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants". They changed a few things on it that I wish they hadn't, but overall it was very good. I was crying like a baby - almost as much as I was when I read the book a few months ago.
Then I went to Walgreens and got some junk food, and to Taco Bell and got some food. Way too much spending on unnecesary things.
Got an email from one of my Ebay customers telling me she'd received her package - unfortunately it was empty with the exception of a piece of wadded up newspaper. I offered to send her some other books I hadn't listed yet, or refund her money. I feel just awful that this happened.
I got some emails from Scott. He asked me to pick out my 8 main character traits from a list. One of the traits I listed was adventorus - he was really surprised by that one. One of the traits he picked for himself was reliable. The jury's still out on that one.
I signed up with eharmony for the 3 months for $49. Normally it's $49/month. Maybe I'll have better luck with it than the site where I met Todd and Scott, though I'm not holding my breath.
Cable: $33 (waived instalation fees - yay!)
Taco Bell: $4.73
=== way too much money -- ugh!
Dad got here this morning raring for a game plan. So we had breakfast, then went on a 30 minute walk. Then got most of the pictures/miorrs etc hung up, got stuff loaded in his truck to take to storage, and just basicaly got the place looking better.
Scott wrote me and told me that one of the older men in his single's group whom I had met a couple of times basically dropped dead after the Single's Potluck on Sabbath (Saturday). The thing that really stinks about it, is that that man had just recently become engaged. I didn't know him very well, but he seemed like a nice enough person. Scott is taking this pretty hard I think. He lost both his mom and one of his sisters 10 and 13 years ago, and I think this is just bringing it all back up to him.
I've been feeling so ucky all day today. It was all I could do to keep working on stuff with dad. I didn't want to complain, becuase its not exactly like I've been working ultra hard this last week or so. I did go through the Sunday paper's employment section and wrote down about 14 different places I want to check out. There are a lot of car places advertising gaurnteed training salary. It is somewhat tempting, but I don't think I'd be good at that at all - I can't tell a lie worth anything - that I think is one of the reasons I failed at my fire safety business - part of the sales pitch to prospective employees, I just couldn't say because I didn't believe it once I was "inside" the whole thing.
I hope I get an answer to a question soon. If not sooner, by Saturday at least.
Ok, I better get some shut eye so I can get started on my job hunt tomorrow.
Spending Log: NONE
