Wow. It’s been a really busy day. It’s also been kind of an annoying one. There is a seminar going on downstairs that, despite the fact they tried to muffle it by putting foam over the openings, is very loud and clear up here at my desk. The seminar is about credit scores and loans. I’m waiting to hear back about the appraisal on my house so I can get a second mortgage, so this is causing me no small amount of stress.
That and the speaker is really loud. Really, loud. The are comparing him to the D.I. from Full Metal Jacket over on the I.T. side of the floor.
Note to self : Switch from Skinning and Leatherworking to Mining and Blacksmithing the next time you play WoW. There is no reason to have two leatherworkers in the group you run with, and blacksmithing goes along with your archetype better.
I really want this second mortgage thing to be over with already. Now that I’ve got it on the table in front of me, I’m very anxious to get it over and done with. I want to see all of my unsecured debt gone. I want the cards that have been hanging over my head for years to be finally closed.
I want my new computer.
I’m also hoping I’ll be able to get enough to put some more money back into the house. There are still a few things that really need to be done, and if I can get them taken care of without running up any new lines of credit I’ll be really happy. My plan, as it currently stands, is to carry the second mortage for a few years and continue to make improvements on the house. Then I want to completely refinance and go to a 15 year mortgage instead of a 30. By the time I’m ready to do that a few years will have gone by and with the corresponding raises I’ll easily be able to afford it.
Whelp. My download is complete so it’s back to the trenches for me. Have a good one, kids.
