Conscious Catholicism

I’ve been up since 4 this morning. I had prep work done last Wednesday for my bridge. I also had my crown put in. My teeth and gums are very sore, I’ve been taking vicoden since. I’m glad that this is almost over as it is the “big” work I’ll have to have done. I only have 2 cavities in my upper teeth, which will be quick work and much less expensive than the work I’m having done now. A couple of other notes to make. I got a call last week with an offer of permanent work for Bank of America doing tech support. This is a good thing. The only downside is that they are offering 5 dollars less and hour than I’m currently getting at ATT. Granted, the ATT is a contract and therefore doesn’t come with benefits, which the B of A job has (in spades). The work schedule at my current gig has changed a bit. I’m now working 9-8. I like it a bit more as I can stay up much later and not have to get up at the butt crack of dawn. The only exception to this is Sunday when i work 7-6, which I really like as all my shows are on and I get home earlier than during the 3 week days I work. Other than work I’ve been meeting some new friends and old acquaintances online which is always nice. The powerbook is back home, from Christine’s, and I have been using it more than my PC. I’m just loving having it, I feel so much more productive. The only program that I use regularly on the PC now is MS Money 2003. I really like that program, I’ve been using it consistently now for 2 years and it has definitely helped with keeping all of the finances in a better than healthy state. I wish that Microsoft would come out with a version for the MAC. I don’t imagine that they will but it would be nice. I’ve tried a few other Money like programs on the Mac, Quicken and a few others but they aren’t nearly as good. I’m compiling GNUCash right now and we’ll see how that one goes. Ideally what I’m looking for is something that will download my transactions from my banks website and plug them in without me having to import or type them by hand. Supposedly GnuCash will do this. Well, I should start getting dressed I have to leave for work in 15 mins or so.
