Almost there...

Wednesday, January 30, 2002

I'm playing hookie today. Well, that's not entirely true. I started Tigger on her insulin last night and she was so lethargic that I wanted to make sure the morning dose didn't slow her down to the point of coma. That, and I had a wicked sore throat brewing last night that 11 hours of sleep seems to have more or less killed off thankfully. Still, I didn't want to spend all day on the phone when I was already fighting a sore throat. So I stayed home. It's been really nice to have a day away to think about things outside of work, but then I foolishly decided to log on to check my mail. Turns out Jo-Ann decided to stay home sick too. I guess they're going to find out what it's like without us there. Between the two of us, we answer 85% of the tech support questions for PeopleSoft HRMS and ReportMart. I expect tomorrow to be rather overwhelming, especially considering I have 2 big long meetings which cover roughly from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. Yep. Going to be tricky to get to dance class this week again. I wonder if Jocelyn will want to kick me off the team. That might almost be a relief.

So the thing I spent my day musing about was moving. Rick and I have determined that he needs his own home office because sharing the space with me (and the cat, and any guests) just doesn't work for the way he wants to have his computer stuff spread out. Our current landlord has been kind of lame, and we're finding the rent increase that took place last September to be rather offensive in light of current rental prices in the area. So we're looking at 3 bedroom places. The quirk is that we looking at both rentals and homes for sale in the Fremont/Newark/Union City area surrounding the Dumbarton Bridge. I can commute over it, and Rick can find a street (Fremont Blvd. for example) to get down to Milpitas on. For $1375-$1550 we can fairly easily find a rental. For $260k-$320k we can pretty easily purchase. The question is do we want to purchase in an area we're not familiar with? I'm not sure, but I'm starting to poke at the question more seriously.

Anyway, it's been a nice day. I'm really really burned out at work right now and I need to get away. For right now though, I'm just going to do laundry.
