As you may have guessed from the lack of update, the seller accepted a different offer - Laura and I did not get the house.  Now we're kind of back at square one.  It's tough, because houses generally fall into two categories.  There are houses we can afford, but they're in bad shape.  And there are nice houses, but we can't afford them.  This house we made an offer on was nice AND affordable, which is why we were so excited.  We offered $8000 more than the asking price but apparently that wasn't enough.  :(

So, a little bummed.  It's tough to go from already planning on having your own place to being back to living at home, no end in sight.  Ah well.

I've spent pretty much every weekend the past month writing, and it did actually pay off - I finished the second draft of my vampire screenplay in 30 days, which is pretty awesome.  I wasn't sure I was going to be able to juggle writing with a full-time job.  I did, though I couldn't really juggle, like, free time or watching TV or anything like that in the bargain, too.  But I should be in good shape for submissions here coming up, and then I can take a breather for a bit.  That'll be nice.

Haven't posted much here lately.  I'd kind of divided up my posting into fandom=LJ, real life=blogspot.  Except I feel like there isn't much going on in my real life nowadays.  Laura and I are looking at houses, because it would be cheaper - not to mention a better return on our investment - to buy a house than to rent.  Besides, the rental properties in our part of KC are dismal.  We've found a great one that we'd really like to be able to make an offer on, but I'm not holding my breath; nothing else has worked out for us.

Just don't have enough hours in the day.  I still enjoy work, but I wish I had more time to write, let alone read/watch TV/movies/work on Latin/get outside and be active.  If only I had an hour lunch instead of just a half-hour, I would get so much more done.
