I signed my life away yesterday for the new house. Normally when you sign you also get the keys, or at least that is how I remember it. Since this house was a foreclosed government owned home, I won’t get keys for another 3-4 business days. The great news is, I wasn’t really expecting keys until mid-February, so this is early!
I move really slow, so by the time I get all the repairs done, and finally move everything in, it might be late March.
First things first, I need to schedule the furnace and hot water heater people to come out and explain the crazy setup. I want to at least get an estimate from the alarm company to upgrade and activate the alarm system, not sure if I will actually activate the system.
Appliance shopping is early on the list as well.
But I don’t want to even make a phone call until I get the signed paperwork and the keys in my hand.
A friend of mine is trying to hold private Spanish language lessons in his front room. The first class was last night. Out of 6 people, I was the only one that didn’t already have conversational Spanish. Me llamo Isherwood Wildwalker ¿Y tú?
I don’t know if I will continue the classes, but it was kinda fun. I don’t have any passion for learning it though, I really only went to be supportive of my friend’s desire to teach it to us.
Going to another gig with my friend’s ukulele band Friday night. This is their first paying gig with an actual cover charge!
And another 40th birthday party Saturday night. This could be an interesting party. I might only know a couple of people. This will be a good test to see if I can talk to single women without automatically putting up a wall. I know it sounds cliché, but I should try to actually work to get a phone number of someone I feel interested in.
Since I’ve started dating again after my wife died, my latest M.O. is not to engage women that I find interesting, but rather sit and wait until women find ME interesting enough to pursue. That needs to change. I need to make the effort to seek out interesting people.
