Headed for the poor house...

...with the way I'm spending money. I guess there's so many things I've put off buying that now that I have money I'm spending it all up! Today I went to the eye doctor for the first time in about six years (or longer - I know it's been since I was married). I got new contacts and new glasses. (Picture for your viewing pleasure - notice the new hair cut as well... courtesy of about two weeks.)

I haven't had new glasses in about six years. My vision is still the same (pitifully bad in terms of things afar) but thankfully I'm not in line for bifocals. I have amazing near-sightedness. Then I went to Home Depot and Lowes to start pricing flooring. I've got to figure out how much it will cost to put in new floors. The HVAC guys are coming tomorrow to install the new heating and air. That means if I want to paint the closet where the heating unit will go, then I have to get started on it tonight. Nevermind the fact that I still haven't done my homework for grad school. I think after blogging, I'll head to Sonic and enjoy a cream slush while I read the article that I need to critique. (I get my best work done at Sonic it seems.)

I haven't updated in regards to eharmony in a while. My subscription is up in a few days and I won't renew. I'm conversing with a few guys but nothing major going on there. They all live pretty far away (Pensacola, FL; Anchorage, AK; Corpus Christi, TX; and Burlington, CO - that's the closest at 6 hours). One guy that I was matched with locally I've been talking to via facebook. He's been looking for a teaching job in the science field and it turns out there's an opening at my school. I mentioned it to him last week so he applied and now he has an interview next week. He called to tell me about it yesterday so I talked to him on the phone for the first time. I'm guessing he's not particularly interested in me in terms of dating, but I guess we'll be friends. We might carpool next year if he gets the job.

Well, I'm going to try to get myself a little bit focused and get some work done. I need to choose a paint color asap, but trying to make that mesh with the potential flooring that I haven't decided on is going to be tricky.
