Slow week

No progress yet on getting hired anywhere. I've gotten encouraging words from my first choice of consulting companies, but until it turns into an actual offer, I'm not counting my chickens. I did go put in an application at Weigh-Tronix this morning. We'll see if that turns into anything.

In the meantime, we're refinancing the house note. I got a commitment today for a 15-year fixed rate mortgage at 4.875% with only 1/2 point origination fee. That's the best deal we got, and it's one hell of a deal. I don't remember my parents ever getting a mortgage that low, and more than a few a lot higher.

I spent too much money at the Madison hamfest, but did get several things that will be quite useful, and for much less than they normally sell for.

I got tired of getting catalogs from the spammers at TigerDirect.com, so today, after getting the third from them since calling them and asking to be removed from the mailing list, I took it to the post office with a completed Form 1500. Take that.

I dunno what else is happening...kinda lack the energy to do much at the moment.
