House Shading and Craigslist

23 Oct

This is not my house. It just plays one on TV.

The weekend is approaching, and I am just a big old ball of nerves.  What if my parents hate my house?  What if they shade me?  Will I be able to handle a second round of “All the Ways Your House Sucks?”  Will my dad refuse to come to my house again and stay holed up in the hotel?  Did I also mention that ALL of my flowers have died in my front yard?  To add to it my sister decided to tell him I needed help “fixing” my house and instructed him to bring his tools.  I appreciate this, but as I have documented here, my dad and I have a very bizarre relationship.   We rarely communicate with one another, it’s mostly through my mother or my sister.  I don’t really feel a particular way about it, I just wish people would stop trying to make this relationship “happen.”  I think my dad and I are in the place that we are in and it will be that way until one of us drops.  Whenever we try to have a conversation it just feels forced and awkward, and you know I don’t do awkward.

I did score a sweet IKEA couch from Craigslist today for the low price of twenty dollars.  It is the EXACT same couch I was about to since 200 dollars into on Friday.  This all worked out because as you may or may not know, I have an issue with what things cost.  I don’t know if this is some kind of legit disorder, but I think 200 dollars is a ridiculous amount to pay for a couch.  It is a couch.  For me, it is vehicle for me to watch endless episodes of Law and Order SVU, while filling my face with guacamole and chips.  Plus I have a preschooler, at some point something will get spilled on it and I don’t need that kind of frustration in my life.

This weekend I entered the world of application development with my shiny copy of Adobe Flex and so far it has been pretty easy to use.  For the past year I have been wanting to create a few mobile apps for things I feel would be useful.  I don’t know how much will come of it, but thanks to a friend I do know the process of getting them on to the Android and Apple market is not as hard as I thought.

Time to head off to Physical Therapy and run on the awesomeness that is the Alter-G treadmill!
