Chillin out at the hotel on R&R from this fire watching it explode because there’s a Santa Ana wind pushing it. 22 separate fires in CA and plenty of new starts today alone. Looks like home is going to be the engine for the foreseeable future.
At least you will be able to pay off your truck with all that OT

Well, that was a disappointing psychiatry appointment. I guess I've reached the chronic illness stage of knowing more about my treatment options than my doctor.

Well our offer on a house was accepted. Both terrified and excited at the same time.

Enjoy. It’s an experience for sure. Even after the offer there is still more to go. Get a good inspection and quick. Don’t want to lose earnest money with a slow report that shows expensive issues.

Yeah. Going to get all those balls rolling tomorrow. I know it has had one inspection from a previous buyer. Apparently that deal fell through because the buyer disappeared right before final closing. But lots to figure out and do.

Make sure there are no deep freezers left in the garage or suspicious holes in the backyard...

Previous inspection doesn’t matter you don’t know who the inspector was or what they may have missed. Make sure all the big ticket items are inspected such as roof, foundation, air conditioning unit.

Sorry, unfortunately it is like that all throughout healthcare.

I was asked to to consider the director role for our ED about a year ago. I’d end up taking a pay cut by giving up all of my specialty differentials and going from hourly to salary. No thanks.
