2008 year wrap up & temporary LOA ....

Happy Yule, merry xmas, happy holidays ... whatever you celebrated I hope it was better than mine.  Actually mine wasn't all that bad, just very somber & not has good as it could have been.  My cousin's wake was the Sunday before xmas (12/21), and the funeral was Monday (12/22).  Not exactly the happiest things to be doing right before the holidays.  So xmas was good ... <i>quiet</i> ... there was just a sad, incomplete air about it.  I will try to get the presents out to those expecting them as soon as I can.

We finally got the gas turned back on, and I am seriously PISSED OFF with the gas company.  Apparently the <i>huge</i> amount they were telling us we owed was <b>NOT</b> what we really owed.  Supposedly there was some kind of <i><b>large</i></b> deposit on the account from 2006?!?, that didn't come off until just a week or so ago.  <i><b>I AM LIVID!!!</i></b>  I'm calling first thing Friday to speak with a supervisor to find out 1) why was there a deposit on the account & what was it for, 2)why was it still on there from <i><b>2</i></b> years ago?!?, 3)what kind of compensation can I get for having my gas turned off for over 2 months when it shouldn't have been in the first place.  I would have asked this yesterday when I paid the (now) much smaller balance, but I was too much in shock & TOO ANGRY.  We now have hot water & the stove back, but still no furnace.  One of the furnace burners is dirty and has some rust on it.  We need to have it cleaned and  inspected before the gas company will OK it for use.  So we're still heating with space heaters until we can get that taken care of.  ~sighs~  At least I can cook & shower in my own house now ... no more creative microwave cooking or going elsewhere to wash my hair.

Happy New Year to everyone & their families.  I hope to gods 2009 is better than 2008.  2008 wasn't nearly as bad as some years, but it wasn't great either.  I have some definite plans for the coming year ... certain goals, projects, and tasks that I'm going to try my damnedest to see they get done/taken care of this year ... and I'm dead serious about them!!  I'm going to make some <i><b>SERIOUS</i></b> changes this coming year.  I'm focused, more so that I've been in the past, and I'm going to do everything in my power so see these things through. 

Oops!!  I almost forgot ... as of Monday (1/5/09) I might not be around or posting very much for about two weeks.  The next peak at the bank starts Monday.  I'll be working there from 4pm-midnight, then high-tailing it over to my other job and working there until 5-5:30am, then going home to SLEEP.  I'm going to try & get up to check things online, but I'm not going to promise anything or guarantee that I'll be around.  For the next two weeks I'm pretty much going to be working & sleeping, and not doing much of anything else.  I'll have more time on the weekend, maybe, I'll have to see how things go ... again, no promises.
