I was in Palm Springs last weekend; you can read about it here if you haven't already. The photo to the right is from the Parker Hotel.
I am actually kind of happy at this point to be not taking too many drugs, and I hope I don't have to take any more antibiotics in the near future. I started feeling on April first that my life was making a change to not feeling sick and coming down with a new bug every few weeks. I usually don't get hit hard by so many colds, particularly not after getting the flu shot this past year. According to everyone who has offered an opinion, this year has been a bad one for colds.
I don't know about a status report on my various projects and if there is really benefit in that, but I am making strides into eventual home/condo ownership. I went into a bank on Thursday and am working on getting a pre-approval for a home loan. I am not really sure what my credit rating is, and I have never had a bank loan for anything. I don't know if this is typical or atypical by my age. I bought both of my cars in cash, well, on my second one, my mom loaned me the money for half and I paid her back with interest. I now started realizing that this wasn't the best strategy for me because having had a car loan paid off would look good on my credit rating, I think. I also was a little concerned about having just paid my credit cards off last month, how that will affect things. We'll see. I think once I know how much of a loan I can get, it will affect my choices of home a little bit. I feel like I've not been doing much on finding a place, mostly because I was out of town last weekend and this weekend is Easter Sunday with very few open houses.
