inochinoakari and I spent 1/2 the day yesterday running errands. We got her car fixed (made it stop squeaking) and got her some manga she wanted.
I signed the papers for my personal loan! I got it! I should get the check Monday or Tuesday and then I can pay off my credit card with the February payment. All my credit cards should be payed off by April and at that point I'll only have the one card. This is a wonderful thing indeed. Since my finances will be in much better order, I can put the order payment on the Prius on my birthday. This will be the first time my credit cards have been completely paid since 1992. I'm quite excited.
inochinoakari and I also stopped and purchased a new firewall router. We got a Linksys cabled and wireless router. Now if anyone visits and they bring a computer, they can access our network and the internet! We're all about the hospitality here. It works quite nicely and we'll retire the 6 year-old Belkin router. Anyone want it? It isn't wireless, but it does have a built-in firewall. If no-one does, it goes in the garage sale.
After that purchase, inochinoakari went back to our place to host a gaming party. I went to visit kaisilverwolf where she was dogsitting. We went to a good mexican resturant that I'm looking forward to trying again. She showed me the house of the people she's dogsitting for and while the outside is large and impressive, the inside is divided into too many rooms and they're laid out awkwardly. I loved the kitchen, except for the cabinet fronts on the refridgerator and dishwasher. I'm a sucker for islands in a kitchen.
Other than that, kaisilverwolf and I hung out and chatted. The dog was sweet. She's an Akita, 14 years old. She's mostly blind, mostly deaf and losing her fur on her hindquarters, but as I said, sweet. She's also not as deaf as she pretends. At one point kaisilverwolf was telling a story about some kids she was sitting for and said in a slightly louder voice "What's that odd noise"? and the dog picked it's head up and looked around for what it could be.
I got home at 12:30 or so, checked the computer, checked the new network, greeted all the people playing games and went to bed around 2:30. This negated any motivation I might have had to go to the recycling dump today, so it'll have to wait for next weekend.
So how's your weekend been so far?
