Snow in October? What?!?!?
Okay, the picture isn't from today but it parts of where I lived didn't look too differently from that this morning... Maybe not so much snow on the trees.
What's awesome on the first day of snow? Heat! Guess what we didn't have... Yup, heat! Thankfully, with the help of a YouTube video Michael was able to fix it. While I was freezing my butt off thoughts of having to write a large check to a heating guy haunted me. I'm thankful that's not the case but it's probably a good idea to call someone to do some maintenance work on the furnace and the water heater; I heard you're supposed to do that on a yearly basis. Man, having a house is expensive.
Well, I guess it's a good thing that I've been working all these extra over time (again!). I haven't had a day off in... approaching 12 days now I think... Yeah, I'm tired. I wish I could say that this has resulted in some hefty boost to our savings account but it hasn't really. This month, this month is when we're going to get our savings back on track. Never mind that I say that every month...
On the good news my laptop is back to functioning normally. This poses a problem... Should I not get a new laptop on Cyber Monday? But what if I pass up a good deal then, have my laptop die on me a month later, and be forced to pay more for a new laptop? I heard a new term on the radio yesterday, "SPP" which stands for Suburban People Problem.
