So our lease is up at the end of the month and we really want to move. We found a wonderful apartment in our area and found out there is one available right when we’d need it. Yeah! So we applied, hoping that I made enough money all by myself to afford it, and guess what? I do! Yeah! I make enough money to afford a 3 bedroom quasi-luxury apartment all by myself!!! However, I apparently have not held my job long enough, so we got denied anyway. Boo!!!

And so we’re staying put for the time being. Which sucks. I hate the complex we’re living in now. The apartment itself is nice and very
spacious, but the wall leaks when it rains, the ceiling leaks when the neighbor upstairs overflows his tub, and we can’t seem to keep the same manager or management company for longer than 3-4 months each. Stuff keeps getting stolen off our porch. Our neighbors or loud. But hey, it’s cheap and we don’t have to pack anything!

Because we aren’t moving, we have all this extra money we don’t need for deposits and stuff. We’ve decided it’s time to refurnish our current place a little.

A new shelf for our DVDs, a new desk to put in the living room for the family computer to get it out of Jacob’s room, and a new bed and
dresser for Jacob to help him organize his room. So far all we need to pick up is the bed. We were gonna pick that up yesterday, but it’s
kinda hard to carry it home in a small car in the rain. By the time we finally got a way to get it, we realized it cost a bit more than what
we had left. That’s okay though; I get paid on Wednesday so we can pick it up then.

Jacob’s room will be kick-ass by next week though, at least for a 10 year old’s room. Sure, we’re taking the computer out of there, but we’re putting in the PS2 and we’ll be setting up the stereo he got for Christmas. Not bad for a kid barely in his double digits. Hopefully his behavior will straighten out so we’ll give him the controllers to the PS2 as well as the console ;-) .

And school is off to a start. Not a great start,  not a bad start. Just a start. After the Photoshop class was canceled, the English and
Psychology classes were okay. I’m probably gonna hate English, but I think I’ll pass it. Psychology looks fun, and relatively easy. It’s a
three hour class once a week, on a Saturday, and I think I can handle that.

I hope I can handle that.
