THANKS for the recommendations for the smokers. I was looking at Traeger (totally out of my budget but still considering it).
I walk into work and two employees are near the front door. One informs me that the other has been in contact with someone who just tested positive so he’s leaving. I sanitized everything and never have contact with this employee so I’m not worried about it… but still.
Another employee tested positive. He was out on vacation since 10/22. He said he started feeling symptoms on the 25th. He just got his results yesterday that said positive. APPRENTLY according to the CDC, he’s allowed back to work on Monday; 10 days after the start of symptoms which he’d be way over. I don’t have ANY contact with this employee. He’s disgusting (and he NEVER washes his hands even after being told multiple times…). But still. I don’t like that he can return already.
Andy’s ex is late on mortgage payments. (Andy bought a condo with ex. When they broke up, she stayed and he moved. She still lives there.) This always annoys me because I don’t think it’s late to the point of it being on his credit but IT COULD BE. And if it affects his credit, it affects our future. The thing that REALLY annoys me about it is… the girl just went to Chicago last week. She went to the zoo. She buys shit nonstop. Yet she can’t pay her $360 mortgage? I asked Andy what her excuse was this time. “My mom is dying.” which..... is legit. She is. But girl still goes to work all the time and her mom dying doesn’t have anything to do with her paying bills. Andy pays over $500 a month towards this place still. (Taxes and condo fees). I AM SO READY FOR IT TO BE SOLDDDDDDDDDD. Which brings up this. She said she’d move out in Summer. I told Andy I want it sold by Spring, at the latest. She just told Andy that she’s hoping to move in with her new boyfriend the SECOND WEEK OF JANUARY. PRAISE EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE PRAISED. Happiest news ever. Then Andy will only have ties to this girl regarding his daughter and will not have any real estate or financial ties to her. I am HAPPY.
I thought booking our venue for 9/10/2022 was being ahead of the game but I saw a post in a wedding FB page I’m on that told me different. A lot of brides getting married around the same time, have so much more booked. The two I’m working on right now is DJ and photographer. I’m pretty excited actually. I think they’ll be less than I originally though (DJs are only like $900-$1,200). We only need a part time photog for this. (We’re also hiring another photog for MT which is sooner so I feel like I’d need to book that first… but that’s harder to do. We still need to pick a date for THAT). My sister has a photo session with the girl who has done the babies’ pictures since newborns. She also helps her friend out with wedding pics so I’m going on Saturday with my sister and I’ll ask if she still does weddings. Their package for 6 hours (which is what I’d want) is $1,500 which is perfect. So our engagement photos are only like $250, Montana photographer will be closer to $2,000 I think (even though we don’t need them a few hours too), and at home around $1,500. Not bad? I think MT could be cheaper too… I just need to do more research.
