House Weekend

lately, i have been growing exceedingly frustrated with leasing an ‘apartment’. not only are neighbors annoying, noisy, slobs, – but rent is expensive where i live. its not worth it to me to pay so much money and have absolutely no return on that investment. All that money could be going towards a house.

So, the process of home owning is now rolling. I qualify for up to 135 grand (although those mortgage payments would be less than affordable)… In reality im looking to spend 110 – 115 k. So i’m 99 % sure that i’m going to own a home before, perhaps way before; my lease ends in may. We have looked at one, and are scheduled to look at two more… If i find something i like for an affordable price, consider me homeownerberge. I dont even mind if it’s a bit of a fixer upper. Pretty much as long as it is not an apartment, and my stuff can fit into it, i would possibly be interested.

in addition to house shopping… i love every one of my friends. This was one of the better weekends of my entire life. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was especially nice to let loose after a fairly stressful week at work. My position is really evolving to a point where i am the go to guy for alot of different things. Blackberries, the SAN, pretty much anythin server related, etc. etc… Its very exciting. But, in cases where you have to be the one to administer a “Disaster recovery SAN failover test” – it can be a slight bit stressful.

At any rate – the D.R test was a success, im vanberge, payner can arrest me legally, vanlandw lost 10 knockout matches straight, vanbergs is my brother, flo throws up if he bowls, i suck at bowling, uccello’s has the best pizza ever, some day i’m eating “the legend”, and Gran Turismo 4 has gotten me back into it.
