I am moving February 13, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — maurianne @ 12:15 am

From apartment 28 to apartment 25. I know BIG move. But I am really excited about it. They are giving me a good deal on it, and a short term lease. It is a nice place, and has everything I need. There is a problem about when I get the keys for the place though. If I move on March 1st, my rent will just be transferred to the new place. But, March 1st is in the middle of the work week. It’s not possible for me to move on a work day. If I get the keys any earlier, I have to pay for it….prorated rent. Sooooo, I am thinking of getting the keys on the 24th, and see if they will make me a deal. That way I can move on a weekend when I have the time off. *sigh* I wish I could just move this weekend. I have an extra couple of days off. But I’ll just use those days to sort, clean and pack. That way I’ll be totally ready to move when I have the keys. And once I am moved in, I will throw a party. It has been too long since I have had people over. This will be great fun.

 

interesting week February 10, 2007

It started out bad, real bad. I tried to do my taxes, and I owe quite a bit of money. That’s really discouraging. I also called my apartment manager about problems in the parking garage. I park underneath my apartment, and I noticed pieces of the roof breaking off. Well, it turns out there is a leak somewhere and now there is a big hole in the roof of the parking area. So somewhere in my apartment is a major leak. Sounds like major work to me. Bleh. I also talked to the manager about the rent. For some reason I was told different rent prices by different managers. For awhile there I was paying a much higher price. I was really bugged by the mix up. The manager promised to get back to me on it after she researched it a bit. She came back saying that they owed me money, but my rent would be going up. Ugh!! I have been praying about my living situation for ages. I have even gone looking at other places, and nothing ever seemed to work out. So with all of this happening, a strange thought came into my head. Why don’t I check and see if any 2 bedroom apartments are available. They are much nicer, have swamp coolers, and washer dryer hookups. The rent wouldn’t be too much more than what I am paying now. I went to the bountiful temple for a session and thought on it more, along with a few other issues. After the session, the manager offered me a good deal, and my choice of places. So this week I will be ironing out details, but I will be moving soon.Wohoo!

And now for the more shocking news. I applied with a traveling company. I may be taking a traveling assignment soon. One assignmet I am interested in will give me 4 days a week off. So I will be able to come home to Utah….I hope. I’m not exactly sure how this will all work out, but it is an avenue I must search out. I went St. Mark’s and dropped off a resume, but that didn’t go so well. I couldn’t even get past the front desk to talk to someone. So I’ve been bummed. I would really like to work there, but maybe it isn’t meant to be. Next I will be taking my resume to the U hospital. Maybe I will have better luck there. Who knows, but I am determined to be in a new job soon.

 

This day sucks February 7, 2007

I didn’t want to get out of bed. I seriously debated just curling up for the day. I almost feel as if I should have. My morning workout was a struggle. That in itself was frustrating. I should have just walked outside instead of going to the gym. The weather has been beautiful. After the gym I cleaned a bit and then made a phone call to my apartment manager about a few issues. And now it looks to have blown up in my face. It looks like my rent is going up again. So now I am at a loss as to what to do. I also stopped by St. Mark’s to drop off my resume and couldn’t even get past the front desk. That was very discouraging. I will try again though. I really want a job there. I am also sending my resume to a traveling agency, so we’ll see how that goes. I have had a few job offers, but nothing that has inspired me. Anyways, I also tried to do my taxes. Bleh. And it looks like I will owe money. My finances are so tight right now. I don’t see how I will be able to come up with the money to pay. This may be a door closing, and I am struggling to find a window to open.

 

Ok now February 5, 2007

I’ve come to a point in my life that surprises me. I’ve never been impatient or eager for marriage. I just figured when the time was right it would happen. Well, I am now to the point where I am throwing up my arms in frustration and saying, I’m ready…what do I need to do? I feel like it’s time. I feel ready for that adventure of life. I don’t get freaked out like I used to. But even though I feel ready, I have no prospects at all. I haven’t dated in ages. I just don’t even know where to start. They are all too young for me in my ward. On-line has been bad for me in the past. So I don’t see much of a chance in meeting the right guy for me. I don’t even know who that would be anymore. I had a list, but I don’t think everything still applies. And I also may have gone a tad bit overboard on the list. So how is it that everyone is getting married?  I can’t even commit to a hair color. Geesh.
