It's hot out. Michigan sports news is at a minimum. So might as well get this posbang party started. What's everyone drinking? Doing? Doing because they're drinking?
FINALLY! Seriously felt like the longest week ever. Or at least the longest since last week.
Thankfully this week seemed to go fast for me.
You have no idea. I'm in the process of buying my first house and I am ready to just sleep for 20 hours. 5 o'clock cannot get here soon enough.
I do have an idea. Congrats! Here's to a smooth closing process and the hopes that they don't sell your mortgage to Fannie Mae...
I can top that -
3.5 years ago, I got married, bought a house, and had a kid all within 5 months. Yes, for all you mathematicians, kind of a shotgun wedding. And yes, all you daytime talkshow hosts, the kid was with the same girl I married.
We bought HUD in a great neighborhood for raising kids. It took a LOT of work, but the sweat equity paid off and we are well above water on the house right now. Good luck, buying the house is the easy part...
I don't mind putting in the work on the house, but I just feel like I'm running in circles trying to get everything coordinated right now.
Wait until it is time to sell that house and buy a new one. You'll have to deal with the BS on both sides of the transaction.
Congrats on the new house!
At the moment, I am on an unreliable connection at an auto shop where they are, at this moment, doing the vacuum test on my wife's van's A/C system. Hopefully, it is just a recharge, but as the performance of the unit gradually declined over the course of 3-4 months, I imagine there is a leak. C'est la vie, I guess.
The rest of today will be spent prepping for my kids' birthday party tomorrow - their birthdays are only five weeks apart, so we meet them in the middle and have a joint party. Well, we will do that for as long as they allow us to do it anyway. This might be problematic by the time they reach their teens, if my experience with my sisters is any indication.
Depending on the damage at the shop, it could be anything from Boddington's to whiskey. I will likely know what I'll be drinking inside the next several hours.
Sounds like you needed to take a bottle with you. Good luck
I used to do the joint birthday party thing with my brother...and uncle...and father...and grandfather...and cousin...and neice...and jesus. december birthdays all around.
That's quite a doobie
We had a Dodge Caravan a couple years ago that had a leak problem with the A/C and they fixed it free because there was some type of recall. Check it out to see if that is the case.
Last weekday of AA Art Fair. So, like the rest of the week, avoiding much of the downtown area (except when I have to walk through it to get to work). Get done with the day and then go grab a beer.
sauna like today...Impossible to do much outside in this heat. I will be drinking a Hefe or two after work, and watching the Open Championship this weekend.
The family is flying in to Houston from Ann Arbor today for 12 days! Over joyed at work, is it 5 yet?
"You guys playing cards?"
Heading up to Ann Arbor to sweat my little fellas off with thousands of other art mavens.
The last few times I've been to Art Fair, my wife and I stroll around for a few hours trying to find something we like before we realize that there's no way in hell that we can afford any of the pieces that catch our eye. Then we just wind up sitting out in the garden area of Dominicks getting drunk on sangria.
Let me get this straight - You got credit for taking the Mrs to art fair, didn't have to shell out anything for "art," and spent the day drinking at Dominicks?
Well done sir. Well done indeed.
then being "forced" to go to a Country Concert at MIS. The things I do for love.
I haven't taken a day off yet this year. THIS IS HAPPENING.
I have taken some days off this year, but very little and not a full week yet. I am on vacation starting at 4:30 PM on August 2, which is a much needed week off from work.
It's very hot here in Cleveland. Also, I just got my electricity bill...it's $245. That kind of ruined my weekend, but I got a $275 bonus yesterday, so at least that will pay for the bill.
I was just in Cleveland last weekend. Mrs. 1989 UM Grad has family in the Beachwood and Solon areas. Enjoyed the Indians game last Saturday night. Disappointed not to make it to Corky & Lenny's however. Great deli!
I have lived in NE Ohio all my life and never heard of Corky & Lenny's.
Also, word up. I just fouund out that tomorrow I will be on a limo bus to be taken to various destinations. It's a friend's birthday and her husband rented a bad ass limo bus for us. Should be sweet.
Grinding through work...making the drive to Flint (via our newly bankrupt city) tonight to see The Sheepdogs
Machine Shop. Still my favorite place to see a concert in the area.
Just trying to recover from wisdom teeth surgery, Sadly no drinking this weekend probably =(
I seem to think people typically recover from that surgery BY drinking
This day is going to crawl by...absolutely crawl.
Working. MSRB1 is a sauna, going to spend a lot of time in the walk in freezer.
How long IS his hair?
HAHAHA, that had to hurt the dwarf. Is "dwarf" politically correct?
Thank Jeebus, I needed this. Bang away.
at work today, then it's off to the movies. I'll be seeing Pacific Rim this afternoon, can't wait. Have a good weekend everyone!
Looking forward to getting home from a few days of work on the road. Also, having my son fill me in on all the details of his time with the players this week at the Michigan basketball camp.
picking up a new 3 wood today, and playing Grand Haven GC. Then, getting shit straight for 10 glorious days in the mountains of NW Montana.
That will be my reward for a tough week!
I'm going to catch up on Mgoblog -
Lazy weekend. Stomping a sprint triathlon on Sunday.
It's been a good week but today is more hectic than normal. I need to work at a 1.5x production rate to leave on time.
Tonight, going out to dinner with my lovely wife and baby.
Driving to Chicago in a few hours. Tonight I will be eating at Fogo De Chao, and my stomach will likely rupture. But it will totally be worth it.
Week long vacation so I'm extremely hungover and deleting all my texts, tweets, calls ext ext from last night.
How do they taste?
Happy friday everyone! Building some PCs and doing some server maintenence today.. should be an easy day for me.
It's hot here in Florida, but it's supposed to be that way. I will go to work, come home, and try to sneak in a few beers. Then I'll wake up every couple hours because I have a 1 month old son haha.
Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday
Just looking forward to a relaxing weekend after the work week ends. Need to get through work first though...
