Winding Down

My summer is quickly drawing to a close.  My last class for the summer semester is tomorrow, I start working at TS again on August 10th and the birth of my second child is becoming more imminent as each day passes.

I’ve been pre-ocupied with class and remodeling the nursery.  I don’t feel like the progress is coming along like I wanted it to with the nursery.

This is the first room that will be “complete” in the house.  While we have painted, installed doors, ect.  One thing we haven’t done is change our trim from stained to painted.  This room will be.  Once little one is born, we will take a remodeling break and then change the trim, each room at a time.

I’m very happy that I was able to take a break from work this summer and focus on my studies.  While I only have one grade posted thus far, I believe I’ll have 3 A’s and a C.  The C is due to some weird quizzes that had wrong answers!  The professor would sometimes throw a few points our way, but nothing that made up for the loss.  I now have a greater appreciation of what it’s like to be a college student.  If our finances could support it, I’d like to continue going full time until I complete my degree.

My computer’s power supply died again, at least it’s still under warranty.  I took it into PC Max, but it will probably be a couple of weeks before its return due to Antec’s slow warranty claim process.

We bought a new car, well new to us.  With the impending arrival of a new member of the family, we needed a more family friendly vehicle.  I didn’t want to trade in my truck, but I did due to it’s much higher trade-in value than the Kia.  We bought a 2007 Chevrolet HHR 1LT.  We’ve rented them on two occasions and love them!  It looks small, but has a lot more room than you would think it does.

Once I get some time to coordinate my thoughts, I’ll write something with more focus.  In the meantime, if you’re my friend on twitter or facebook – I’ll keep you updated.

    We also rented an HHR and liked it a lot. Thinking about such a switch ourselves. Let us know how you like it as an owner. And good luck with everything.
