Friday Free-For-All – 01/19/18

Our house closing has been delayed, booooo. We sort of knew it would be a long shot to stay on schedule for closing yesterday (the seller’s lawyer is, to put it mildly, “difficult”), but we were hoping that things would work out anyway. Sadly, that was not the case, and our closing has been pushed back to next Wednesday afternoon. This is not ideal for several reasons, not the least of which is that Ben and I will both be out of town Thursday – Monday next week right after closing and therefore won’t be able to do any moving for almost a week. But I’m trying to focus on the positive, in that we ARE still scheduled to close. Which means…

it’s time to start packing. Ugh. Packing is the worst. Thankfully, most of our stuff is already packed up in our storage unit, but we do have a surprising amount of stuff spread out ALL OVER my in-law’s house. It should be quite a process collecting and packing it all. I may start in this weekend just to feel like I’m getting a jump on stuff.

Even though we didn’t close on the house, I kept my vacation day yesterday. In the morning, I had a commercial audition, went to yoga class, and ran errands. In the afternoon, my friends Krissy, Aimee and I had a shopping and coffee date. All in all, it was a delightful day, and I’m SO glad I didn’t go to work.

One week to Broadway Con! Technically, it’s less than a week until I leave, but the first day of the actual con is next Friday, and I couldn’t possibly be more excited. My friend Sarah and I are taking the Amtrak Vermonter from Essex Junction all the way to Penn station on Thursday next week, which should be an adventure. I can’t wait to see some shows and geek out about all things Broadway with a bunch of like-minded people. It also doesn’t hurt that next week is only a three-day work week, and the following week will be a four-day week. At that point I won’t have worked a full week for almost a month due to holidays and vacation days!

Do you have any vacations or trips coming up that you’re excited about?

    Ugh yeah – packing sucks! Don’t have any desire anytime soon! We have so much stuff, even with an annual development yard sale!

    I took yesterday off as well to move Thing #2 back in to Ithaca college. Great day, not everything went smoothly – but so hopeful for a great rest of year for him!

    Good luck on the house!

    Sorry your house closing situation is complicated and that the other lawyer is being difficult 😦 That makes it fun for no one. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a smooth closing this time around! Good luck with packing… the worst part of moving for sure. There’s a picture of me somewhere with insane hair and a tea cozy on my head from when Drew and I were packing to leave our Watertown apartment, because I’d finally had it and snapped, hehe. Hopefully your experience goes better!

      The good news is that 80% or more of our stuff is already packed and in a storage unit, but we still have plenty to pack up at the house right now. It may not be pretty…

        80% already packed is definitely better than 80% not packed! Good luck with the rest… I feel for you!
