Good News, Bad News

I talked to my brother yesterday on the phone. First time in months, may have been before Thanksgiving when I talked to him last. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was shortly after I started back to work. Anyway, he went out and bought himself a Xbox with his fantasy football winnings. Which is great news, now if I can just convince him to spend the cash to get a cable connection for his PC and a subscription to Xbox Live we can hang out online and play some games. Also, another of the guys from work has picked up his copy of Xbox Live and is just minutes away from being online. This is all great because now my chances of finding someone I know to play games with has increased yet again. I was walking around the house yesterday and I realized that in order to sell the place we would have to do more than just fix the floor in the kitchen, redo the bathroom, and replace some closet doors. The upstairs carpet is shot, and the downstairs isn't much better. If we're really going to s

So Far, So Good

Things are going well with the New Years Resolutions. I got a little bit of a late start and didn't really get into the flow of things until around the sixth or seventh, but I've got the writing and the exercise down now. I feel good, walking the stairs at work and the morning workout have got me a little more energized. I'm writing steadily, it's only taking me about forty-five minutes to get my 1500 words down each day, which means my typing is improving. I get paid on Friday and I can't imagine a reason that I won't be able to take some money and put it away. The only thing that I think I'm slipping on is the diet. I keep eating the fast food and I know that it is killing me. For some reason lately that I can't figure out I'm craving McDonald's. I went so long without eating that garbage...
