Of Tennis and Hamburger Helper

Played tennis against Cal again on Sunday. What was a dead heat at one win apiece is now decidely in my favor, as I won 6-6(9-7), 4-6, 6-1 to go ahead in the series. I am a tennis god, due in no uncertain terms to the new shirt that I bought at the store that very day.

Work has been rather stressful lately, but my new schedule of riding in with Erin on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 7am seems to be working out great. No one is in the office before 9am (which gives me a chance to write this), and I typically get a ton of work done. Then the rest of the day kinda wanders by, then everyone leaves and I get a lot of work done while waiting for Erin to pick me up between 6 and 7pm. Plus, when I play basketball on Tuesdays and Thursday for 2 hours at lunch I don’t feel like I have to stay extra late, because I was here extra early instead.

Big shout-outs to Henkel. If you need PHP help, you know where to find me.

Finally, for the first time ever last night, I had a bad serving of Beef Pasta Hamburger Helper. I didn’t think it was possible, what with the science humans possess these days, but apparently something went wrong at the plant. It wasn’t good. I would venture to say it was bad. We’ve got another box at home though, so we can try again later on this week.

Erin and I sat down and tried to figure out our budget so that we’ll be able to pay for the wedding. Short form of the results: we can’t. We need help. We’re gonna try to save about $1500 per month, which puts us at $13,500 at the time of the wedding, should is enough for the ceremony, reception, and all that stuff. But I think the wedding bands and the honeymoon are going to put us in the red. I’ll have to see, and stand by for my loan application Mom and Dad!
