So.

We just got back yesterday from 4 days at Disney. Never again in July. The crowds are too massive and it's way too hot. Disney itself was great. We stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside and it was gorgeous even in the muggy nastiness. We hung out with Steve and Jessica one evening and my mom came and stayed the night before Katelyn's birthday. I was really frustrated with Brendon and his electric scooter. It was a pain in the ass to deal with. Loading it on the buses takes forever and I feel like he's using it as a crutch. He's supposed to be getting more exercise and trying to get stronger and he would even use it when he had to go out to the car or to the food court at the hotel. We did have fun though, so I guess it all evens out.

I'm trying to turn over a new leaf. I'm employing UFYH as my cleaning strategy and I'm going to clean or do chores for at least 20 minutes a day no matter what. I didn't make my bed this morning but I'll do it tomorrow. Today I scrubbed in the bathroom, we cleaned out the fridge and I did dishes, and I did some laundry (which I need to put away but don't tell UFYH lady). I'm also going to make a budget and stick to it, at least savingswise. I want to buy a house. And I want to take Katelyn to Europe when she graduates. So I need to get my credit rating up so I can take advantage of the first time homebuyer programs.

I got accepted into the BSN program. BUT I have to lay out a chunk of cash for the background checks, fingerprinting, physical, immunization screening, and malpractice insurance. Yay. Oh, and Cynthia got in too so this is going to be fun. Bleah. Hopefully I can do the online component so I don't have to see her stupid face.

I don't know why your credit rating is how it is (or even what it is obviously lol) but when my mom and Yo were buying the house in California they both needed to improve their ratings. One of the things the guy helping suggested was that for any companies that showed you'd been delinquent they write them a letter explaining what had happened and ask they remove that from their rating. It didn't work with every company but enough did it to improve their ratings.
