Things went about as badly as they possibly could have yesterday. All of my fears were realized and and at least one more was introduced. Yippee!!! As if there weren’t nearly enough things wrong with my life! I never thought the decision I made to purchase this house ten years ago would haunt me so. I’ve passed my wit’s end. I don’t think rationally any longer.
I’m not trying to be a downer, but let’s just say that yesterday will never make my list of “Best Days Ever!”
Cut And Run?
That’s the decision I’ll be making in the near future. What is “important” in my life? I plan to work a lot more because I love to code. I plan to spend time at home getting rid of “things.” I plan to make decisions which will radically alter the days that exist from now until I pass.
I’ve learned a lot — like I’m not sure that I ever want to own another house, or at least I’ve learned many things which will be “deal breakers” if the time to buy another house ever arises again.
If there is a positive in all of this, I’m not upside-down on my loan. I could possibly sell it and make a few bucks (not much, mind you), but at the moment I see no living alternative that I think is fiscally responsible for me.
Looks like it’s a life of eating out and laundromats for Paulie for the foreseeable future.
And now for something better, even if it began because of a bad thing…
If You Are A Cyclist Who Wants A Ride Tonight For A Good Cause
Tonight is the annual Ride Of Silence which is a slow-paced ride to make awareness of cyclists who have been killed or seriously injured while riding on public roads.
This year’s Atlanta group will be riding from Piedmont Park at 7pm and is being organized by my friend Maigh (where she finds the time to do everything that she does I’ll never figure out).
If things were different in my life right now I’d be there tonight. However, I plan on putting in a few extra hours of work tonight to start making up for yesterday.
