What a blah day

Tags: , ,
This was just a fantastic day off. It began with an oh so delightfully fun doctor's appointment this morning. Everything seems to be in working order ;)

After leaving the doctor's, I went shopping for a new bed since I'm moving from a furnished apartment to an unfurnished one in a few weeks. I am currently short on ready cash thanks to things like rent, buying a motorcycle, paying for medical insurance for the next five months, etc. but the mattress store had a deal with 12 months, same as cash (no interest, etc) with approved financing. When they submitted my little application, I was denied. This sent me into a mental panic since I have no outstanding credit card debt, car payments, or anything that would cause them to deny me and I had the issues with the identity theft this past fall. I spent like an hour sitting around the mattress store while the salesman tried to get someone with the credit company to explain why it was denied. Turns out they entered my social wrong and were determined I didn't exist. Once they figured out how to type information off the form into their computers, I was approved no problem.

Once all that was settled, I finally got to go grocery shopping. By the time I finished with that, it was storming and I had a headache. I'd wanted to stop by B&N to ask about DH release plans, but instead I went home and took a nice long bath which helped considerably with the headache. Afterwards, I was still kind of mopey, so I wrote a mopey ficlet (c. 600 words) for the metamorfic_moon Last Chance Showdown. *shameless plug* You can read it here if you are so inclined */shameless plug*

The other positive thing, assuming you like the fic and count me writing it as a positive, about today is that I had HBP with me during my wait at the mattress store and in my long bath and got some serious reading done. Looks like I really will be able to reread all six books in the last few weeks before DH. I'm not 100% certain I'll have time to post all my thoughts and questions since books 3-6 are still on notebook paper and need to be typed, but at least I'll get through with all the reading.

That's all for now. I have two classes tomorrow for which I've not yet prepared so I should probably pretend I'm going to work on that.
