Yet another week has gone by where I repeatedly think about blogging but don’t actually get on the computer and blog. Oops.

Because I have gone so long without writing an actual post, I have a lot of random thoughts/news to share, so please bear with me through this extremely scattered post.

We have really gotten settled into the new place. We’re waiting on a few things and haven’t hung anything up yet, but it still feels like home. I promise I will post pictures as soon as we get things looking good and I can take a few snapshots.

Béni is doing well. With the exception of trying to eat our bathmat this morning and whining at us at 5 and 6 AM, he’s a sweetheart.

I have finished writing (but still need to edit) 2 of my 3 essays for my comprehensive exam. I have finished about half of the last question. I plan to finish on Saturday. Eek!

I have a midterm due for my last class on 30 June. I have to write a 4 page paper and do 5 more exercises from the book. My goal is to have this done by the end of the day today. It’s doable…

Work was crazy earlier this week. A site manager brought in 3 new hires on Tuesday for me to in process. Mind you, I had never done this before (neither had the site manager), and the only “training” I got for in processing employees was my own in processing experience on my first day a little over a month ago. Of course, it didn’t go very smoothly, but I tried my best! I was just told today, I have another employee to in process on Monday – I pushed it to Tuesday – people have to give me notice on these things!

I have decided my favorite phrase at work is “you need to discuss that with your supervisor.”

I brought small speakers to work so I can play music. It really helps brighten my day when no one else is in the office (which happens at least 50% of the time…no joke).
We are about to start paying down my student loans as I’m coming out of the deferment period in August. I can’t wait to see them start shrinking!

Our new washer smells like mildew. Our dryer smells like burning. Yes, burning. A repair man is coming out today.

The Culligan man is coming out today. We opted for delivery because we were having to buy 4-8 gallons/week from the commissary anyway, and the cost for delivery is roughly equivalent. I’m excited to have this luxury.

We dropped off a small rug at the dry cleaner on May 22nd. They told me it would take “awhile” without any indication of how long “awhile” is. We still hadn’t heard from them this week, so we gave them a call. After two days, we found out it had been sitting at the dry cleaner’s for awhile and no one bothered to call us because they didn’t take the time to unroll it and look at the claim check. They just counted it as unclaimed or something equally as lame.

Today is my sister and her husband’s 10th wedding anniversary. Awesome! Happy Anniversary, sis & D!

If I say “10 year,” it sounds like “tenure.”

That’s it for us this week. Oh, one more thing… It’s only 6 weeks until we visit the States!!!

      Eh I would…but I’m not going to 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by though! It took me awhile to figure out how to read your blog again. I forgot to login and kept thinking your last post was 4 years ago.

    If i’s a front loader, try wiping the gasket down with bleach diluted with water. Also,leave the door open all the time it’s not in use. Lastly, run a load of towels with white vinegar to get rid of the smell in the wash. Then you need to wash 1 or 2x w/o vinegar if yu smell vinegar:).

      Thanks! We ended up having to have a repair guy come out. I believe he repaired a piece in the back. Now we’re having our second round of problems with our dishwasher. Go figure! We have had problems with every appliance except the refrigerator since we moved in 3 weeks ago!!!
