Where’d I go?

First of, congratulations to my sister Kate and her new husband Kory! Kory, you know what happens if you screw up, so... don't. All good things come from God, not from your spouse, though God may use your spouse to deliver them. Don't get confused!

I spent the weekend up in Tennessee for the wedding, meeting extended family and so on. There was a lot of non-sleeping involved, but it worked out OK in the end. One of the downsides of having the wedding on Saturday was that we had to leave early Friday to make it to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. This meant I needed to take a day off from work, but work being how it is lately, that wasn't much of an option. I ended up working until the wee hours of Friday morning trying to finish up the day's work before the sun rose. It almost worked.

Speaking of work, and house buying, I'm going to stick with my current company for a few more weeks and hope that the funding issues clear up. Things are looking hopeful on that front, and if it comes together we'll be in a very good position corporately. If they don't come together soon, however, I'll have to find some other employment. A few companies have unofficially offered me jobs, and people I've talked to about them have asked me why I'd stay on with my current company in light of the other offers. It really boils down to the perks involved with a small company. I can work at 2am, come in to the office 2 days a week, and I never have to talk to clients on the phone. In fact, I've unplugged the phone on my desk. There are very few working environments that allow for that kind of weird behavior. Plus I hate wearing ties.

So, until my paychecks improve, I'm not really in a position to apply for a loan for a house. I've had several people suggest a short-term apartment rental while I'm waiting for things to come together (or fall apart), but I don't want to go through all that if I can help it. My parents are very understanding about things and are letting me continue to live at home. Here's hoping it gets figured out soon!
