Comcast just upped my bill almost $10.  Reason for the increase?  They increased the modem rental charge.  Well, finally that was enough to push me to just buy my own cable modem.  I’ve been meaning to do so for a long long time but never have.  Bought one last night.  Now i just need to get a router as I was using the Comcast Business Gateway as my router before.

Been a while since I’ve posted.  Basically haven’t since I started my new job so I thought I’d post this morning.

Still love my new job.  It’s everything I’ve wanted and I look forward to the future with this job.  Money hasn’t ended up as much as I thought so that kinda sucks but I’ll give it time to see if that changes.

My kitchen is in the middle of being remodeled.  For those that don’t know, I bought a house a couple years ago.  It was built in 1940.  It has a good size kitchen but the layout was terrible.  Tons of wasted space.  It felt small.  Plus it was old and ugly.  Basically tore it out completely.  Knocked down walls, putting in new flooring new walls, new cabinets, etc.  Excited to see it when it’s done.  Huge job and we’ve been without a kitchen for a couple of weeks so that’s no fun but it’s coming along.  Home to at least have a usable kitchen somewhat later this week.  My buddy, Jeremiah, has been working hard on it.

Jean’s new car suddenly decided to die on the road.  Long story short, it’ll cost $1500 to fix.  Fun fun.  My car needs some work done as well, although it’s at least drivable still.

The city was doing some sort of construction at night on/under the road right in front of our house and as soon as they started that, we’ve basically had clogged drains in our house.  So another fun thing to have to deal with.

So financially it’s a big struggle right now.  Thank goodness for savings but that’s quickly dwindling.  Hope things turn around soon.

On a lighter note, can someone tell me why anybody wants or has ever has any of the XBox consoles?  I have still yet to understand this.  XBox has always had very few exclusive games.  Halo?  Gears of War?  I think that’s all I can think of and I’m, personally, not a fan of either.  Playstation has always had way more exclusive games and they are great.  I also seem to be one of the few that has never liked the XBox controllers but loves the Playstation controllers.  Anyways, the PS4 looks awesome.  I could care less about the XBox One.  I won’t be upgrading anytime soon.  Can’t afford it, plus I still have PLENTY of games to play on the PS3.

Anyways, that’s it for me that I can think of for now.  I hate this time of year for the weather but holidays are always enjoyable, besides the constant eating of junk lol.
