This weekend we did some organizing in the house. Still a long way to go, but it's getting there.

We also visited an open house in Gorham. It's a nice house, but it's not right for us. It's 3 small bedrooms and one bath. Very little storage in the basement due to the garage. Overall it's just not what we're looking for.

Here's a picture of the house. Nice, just not exactly what we need. Not to mention for just slightly more there are better houses out there. For now we're just planning on hitting up all the open houses in Gorham to really get a good feel for what's available in our price range.

Pat has his wisdom teeth out on Thursday. I need to take the day off to drive him and be home in case he needs anything. I hope everything goes well.

I am anxious/nervous about the election tomorrow. Pat and I decided we need to look for land in Canada if things don't go the way we're hoping.

Lazy Saturday

Just sitting home on a Saturday. Pat's working in Gorham and I'm relaxing. I've done a little cleaning, but it feels good to just relax. I have been so busy at work that my brain just really needs a break.

Two days before our wedding my company was purchased by a new start up company. Luckily I still have a job. Unluckily there was a ton of work that needed to be done quickly. I had to set up a whole new general ledger system and new processes for everything. It was great to have some interesting work to do again, but it was frustrating because I felt like I was so behind.

However, now I am basically caught up and it feels great. I am excited about the new company and about the new systems we've got in place. I have almost the full control over the day to day retail business (the Walmarts and Walgreens etc) so that's exciting as well. I really want to take the retail side and own it. Run it better than it has ever been run and really stay on top of things. I have this new drive to be a great employee.

The other piece of my "post wedding" life is that I need to focus on the CPA exam. This is something I'd like to have out of the way in the next two years or so. I need to get some study materials and get to work. It will be tough, but I will get it done.
