Gotta grow up at some stage.

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 9, 2012, 3:53 AM


Ive got news

Well, it seems its time I grew up... Yes thats right :O lol
No really though, Ive been looking into buying a house. YES!! Would you believe it? Me? being all grown up and owning my own house. Lol.
I have been looking into it a LOT lately, there are a lot of pretty cheep houses on the market at the moment.
And the way I see it. Why pay rent, when the money I put into renting a house could go into a mortgage. In the long run, it would cost me less to buy a house and be paying it off, then to be paying rent.
I have looked at a few online, I just need to go have a look at the houses in person, and see what I think of them, and get a feel for them. See which I get a good or a bad vibe from.
Then get a builder to go check it out, and see whats what. :D
Cool aye? Debbie getting all grown up :lol:

Work

Man I have been so busy with work lately, sometimes I dont know if Im coming or going, or Arthur or Martha lol.  Good to stay busy though. Got a lot of shit going on here at the moment so keeping busy with work is a good thing.
I have been thinking of looking into the local High School and seeing if they have any jobs going in the special needs class. I know the lady who lives up the road, she works in that room, and this is her last year. As she wants to stay at home and be with her children more. Also two other teachers there have left too. So they may be looking for new teachers in that room for next year. It would be damn nice to have some normal hour work.
Ive also been asked by a fostering place three times now if I will be a foster parent. As they have been asking around about me ( feels like I was being stalked lol) and they have seen nothing but good things about me, and everyone they have asked, has had nothing but good things to say about me. According to the company I would be a perfect foster parent.  If I have a bit more normal hours, Id love to do that. It would be right up my ally alright.

Death

A close family friend died on the 25th of November.
We were out on a horse trek for the weekend. Out of nowhere, someone yelled out "Brians gone down" Brian was just two horses behind me. We had to go single file though this one part.
I turned around, and saw him on the ground. Jumped off my horse like bloody lighting I tell ya. Never moved so fast in my life. lol
Throw the rains at Dad, and yelled out for him to hold onto Cody ( my horse) Dad didnt even get a chance to catch the rains, and I was gone.
Ran over to Brian, someone else was there trying to put him into the recover position, but had no idea what they were doing. So I took over. he had a slight pulse, and breathing just. I had him in my arms, saying to him the ambos are on their way, and to just stay with us.
Then he took this huge gulp of air.
And it was all over :(
Turned him onto his back and did CPR on him. a nurse who was on the trek came over, and started to help me. But he was gone, :(
First time Id ever had to use my first aid skills on someone, and it bloody happened to be someone I knew personally, and the bugger had to die.
Guttered as :( I went into a bit of shock for a week or so there. I didnt know what to do with myself or anything. Kinda walked around on auto pilot, not knowing what I was doing or anything. That week went by in a big blur.
But he was 75 years old. And he died in no pain, and he died doing what he loved the most, and was around loved ones. his friends and horses. A perfect way out for him.
Just wish I didnt have to be there at the time :(

Sorry to hear about ur friend. Must have been horrific. I guess, when they're gone they're gone & no amount of CPR will bring them back. My Father-in-law went the same way.
I know what you mean about the house though. It's actually cheaper to put money into a mortgage than it is to rent. There's a house round my way that some friends were renting for 800. I'm paying 450 a month & after 25 years (14 more to go) the house is mine. & it's more than doubled in value already! :)
I say...go for it! :)
