Motivation...

current mood: bitchy

Some interesting news for those that didn't know, I'm in the final stages of purchasing my first home. Of course this hasn't been without it's own little pains but in the end I'm sure it will be worth it. I've also purchased another vehicle to motor around in while I'm still on Oahu. I'll do up some pictures soon of both but right now I'm a tad overwhelmed.

Just managed to provide myself with basic needs at my apartment, (Yay, inflatable bed!). Water and electricity has been sorted out, transportation needs met and with the upcoming purchase back home I put in for some well deserved leave time to get the house up and running before the winter. Small problem with all this, I'm either in school or underway any other time I turn around. Add to this fact that I'm in the first stages of getting prepared to get my Lasik eye surgery done and the calendar just doesn't have enough days on it.

The house was a rental property so you can imagine the condition. I put in for two weeks so that I could tend to some of the more urgent repairs. A few of them being replacement of the water heater, insulating the roof, and looking at the shingles on the roof to see if any problems are present. At the front of the house there is an addition enclosing the front door that was pretty much just thrown together, this is my primary concern as the water leakage from that addition could be penetrating into the main house and cause me all sorts of headaches down the road. 

Moving into the property isn't going to be too much of a problem, the majority of my household goods are already packed and my girlfriend doesn't have too much stuff so I expect no more then two to three days at the most getting everything set up. Repairs are going to take up most of the rest of my leave time and I love what they are trying to pull on me for when I have to return to Hawaii.

I have to go to another school after I return; the cool thing about this is that I will be in the states for it. It is always good to be able to enjoy myself on the weekends even if the school itself will be fairly demanding during the week. The stupid thing is that it will not only cut two days from my leave but I have to fly all the way from Montana to Hawaii then back to the states. This wastes not only my money but the navy's as well. I hate flying...

Right now I have to search for another house. After the inspection the bank decided they wouldn't finance the home. A little bit off of my back but it still means I have to search during my leave time. Hope you are well!

Good to hear, I hope sometime in the near future I'm able to bring Jen up there and maybe pay a visit sometime.

I'd love to meet the both of you! Let me know what you'd both like to do and I'll see what I can do to accommodate!

You're on Oahu? I have a friend who moved their with her BF who's in the Airforce. (She met him while he was out here at the Defense Language Institute learning Chinese.)

Which brings up the next point, more school! Good luck. Of course you'll do well with your darn good attitude. XD

And congrats on the house? Is it in CA?

I am, I hope your friend is having a blast. I barely get to the beach and I've been there for three years. I need to schedule a trip to the Missouri and Arizona, passed by both and we are docked right a crossed from them but never visited yet.

I usually have fun that the schools, this one is in San Diego so I will have a grand time visiting the attractions there.

As for the house I need to find another right now but rest assured I will do my best to get a permanent home by the end of the year.

Hope things are going well for you and yours!
