Finally... A Good Day.

Today was a good day finally.

Went to check out HHH's job prospect. He still hadn't gotten a yes or no yet about it, but being optimists we went to look at the apartments. They're frickin HUGE! Then, as we were looking at the apartments, HHH got the call that his Pee test came back ok and he was a go to start on Monday!! WHOO FUCKING HOO!  We are getting a 5 bedroom, 5 bath apartment for free. Yes, you read right... FREE. (So I have a guest room should any of you northern folks need a place to crash when visiting my fine state!!) Also free electric, free cable, fully furnished, and only $45 for water, sewer, trash disposal. Holy FUCK! HHH starts Monday, but the kids and I are staying in Valrico because FCATS are coming up. We'll be packing up while HHH is working. Then it will be off to New Port Ritchey!!

After picking out a place to call our own, (3rd floor, end building) we drove back to Tampa to take the kids to IKEA. Eldest was highly incensed we went with out her last time. You'd have thought we brought them to Disney World again. They went nuts seeing all the stuff, picking out towels, sheets, light fixtures, art, etc.... We didn't buy yet because I'm not buying any more crap till we move. No sense making it harder, right? But they got an idea of what they might want and seeing as how they will each have their own rooms, I may just indulge them. We spent the afternoon there, then came home.

Also... THIS happened!
Please excuse the cleavage shot.

Went to The Rack for Let's Eat Tampa and finally got to meet Anissa! Totally amazing person extraordinare!  She actually knew who I was even though we had never met in person before!! We chatted a bit, I sat down at at table and ordered a drink to take the edge off my nervousness, then after the crowds died down I went back and asked for a photo, to which Anissa said "Sure. $5.50 per shot!" and I busted out laughing!!!! I'd pay twice that and then some. I have never met such a positive person in my life and that said life is better for knowing her. Alas, the night wore on, some of the folks I had hoped to see weren't able to make it, and a 2 dude live band started playing. It was REALLY time to leave when a group of drunky 20 somethings started asking the two guys to do Backstreet Boys covers. So I went home knowing that Good Friday was actually going to live up to it's name! I guess passing the Jesus guy carrying the cross was lucky for us today!

I'm not surprised at all. Winners always come out on top eventually. The trick is to keep believing that when the chips are down.

So happy for you - you look so pretty in your photo! Too bad you didn't have pink or red hair to go with Anissa's blue!
