Impatiently waiting..

March 11th, 2009 at 06:34 pm

I am no good at waiting.

No good.

Next Friday is payday and I want my paycheck now.

BUT, if I were to get my paycheck today, it would not be as high as when I receive it on the 20th. Win some, lose some.

But what I am REALLY wanting to get done is the countertops. They called and they are coming on Friday to put in the new countertops. It's about freakin' time! I first noticed the leak on January 24th. A plumber came by later that week and on Feb. 1 they began the process of removing the mold. And our kitchen hasn't been the same since. We are going on SIX weeks without a proper kitchen.

But even though the countertops will be done Friday, we are probably not going to have a sink until Monday. Why? Because the plumber is coming by tomorrow to remove the sink so they can put in the countertops Friday, and knowing this company, they won't be by until Monday to put the sink back in.

The bright side is that we did not have to pay one penny for any of the work done. Because the leak was caused by the pipes not being put together properly (maybe it was all that soda they were drinking...), the HOA covered all of it.

I'm going to go read. This week the homework load has been really light because spring break starts Friday! Yay!

After I finish these two books I am debating on whether or not I should get another book. The book in question is Bringing Home the Birkin by Michael Tonello. I can buy it on half.com for $8 (hardcover, only version available right now), but if I wait until August I can buy the paper back version from Borders using my gift card. Decisions, decisions.

Oh, and I decided to get a PO box. I'll probably get one at the end of March, so after I receive my paycheck. Do I have to change my mailing address with the Post Office? How about the DMV? Or does it not really matter because I am not moving?

    Haha, same here! I'm waiting anxiously to see what happens to my paycheck now that I've moved to my new employer.

    Your license has your home address I think, but dmv has your mailing address on file.But I think you still have to change it with DMV still.

    That's what I thought. When I went in to the DMV a couple weeks ago to renew my license, on the change of address form there was a line for mailing address and street address.

    Get it NOW. the HC version has a nice color photo insert which the pb won't have.
    Then you can email me and we can do some interview or something fun.

    Well, Mr. Tonello, you sold me! I like looking at pictures. I'll probably get it in the next couple weeks.
