Well, its official! Due to the fact that finding a house to rent seems damn near impossible at the moment, we have decided to start the home buying process. There are tons of house for sale, and we only found one for rent… and that house will not allow pets, no exceptions, especially for a dude who is on the radio. haha. So Kinsey and I have decided to make our first huge investment! She tried to say Cason was a huge investment, but I am pretty sure he will never make us any net profit, unless he does end up being the next Tom Brady. Apparently, buying a house can’t be done in less than a week, but we are starting the loan application process, and we are going to check out some houses today. The good news is that, based on our calculations, our mortgage is going to be less than our rent. The bad news is that I am probably going to have to turn into some sort of super man and learn how to fix stuff when it breaks. My only rule with buying a house: no humongous trees. That should save us a lot of money because if there is no tree, there is no possibility of a tree causing thousands of dollars in damage.

We are officially one day away from the start of the Oprah taping. I am starting to get the idea that they are flying my mom, dad, and sister in town for this too… I don’t know how I feel about that. I don’t know if I am really ready to see them quite yet. I thought we were going to do on-camera interviews and “b-roll” for the show, and that I would meet with them later… and based on how slow this process has been, I figured I had another month to get ready for that. The problem is that I have so many emotions towards them right now, and I have not come to terms with how to handle those emotions because of having to deal with the house situation. It’s emotions piled on top of emotions. I just hope I stay calm and not let everything come out all at once… which is probably what they want for TV gold.

Speaking of TV gold, The Bachelorette was the complete opposite. What the hell were they thinking?!?! The Muppets?!?!?! Really? Just when you think a show can’t get any cheesier, it does. I would have changed the channel, but I think the hotel was playing a mean joke on me because ABC was the only channel that would come in clearly. Sorry, I have to go clean up the barf in my mouth from thinking about that episode again. Have a great day! 🙂
