Catching up

Finally got my nails done today. Much quieter while typing now and I don't hit the wrong keys because of them.

I'm dying to get a new computer. I think I have John talked into it...maybe. Why do I need a new computer? Well...because I can't install/run The Sims Online very well on this one. Not only am I almost out of damn space, my CPU is finally becoming "too slow, too shitty, upgrade now dummy!" I've been pricing some systems at various places. Though the military store we can purchase a stock system with no OS at all installed. Fine with me, I've got all that stuff already. I just need something bigger and faster!

Still no word on any of the jobs. Since I've been working so many extra shifts I haven't had much time to worry about it. I'm still checking the papers and such every day but nothing is really jumping out at me. I suppose that after the holidays I'll hit the temp places and see if they can place me in at least a long term position that works with my teaching hours. John and I are really trying to become debt-free this year (minus the car payments of course) and getting an extra job would do wonders for our bank accounts. By this time next year I would like to be at least seriously looking if not IN a house of our own. I want to put down roots...feel like someplace is home and not just "the place we're living for the next few years."

Other than that, not a whole hell of a lot going on here. The weather sucks, the military is about ready to put a new roof on our house (Oh joy, no sleeping past 7am!) and we haven't even begun to think about Christmas presents for this year.
