I tried to get a straight answer this morning as to when we would be closing escrow. Angela is still pushing for Friday it seems. The escrow officer was trying to tell me the 15th, but the loan people want to push it through by the 7th and that was all she would say. I’m kind of hoping that if we push hard enough to close this week that maybe we can actually close mid next week. If we closed Wednesday, it could actually be nice, giving me Thursday to get appliances in and the long weekend to move. I probably won’t be that lucky, although it is only really two business days ahead of the day we need to close the loan by, the 7th.
Other than that it was pretty much just the typical work day. Toman came by and got the weather station server up and running again – the hard drive had failed. I did stop by and measure the washer for the house. I think I’m just going to go with the top of the Whirlpool that probably has more features and is bigger than I will ever need, but is rated the highest. I think I’m going to call of go back to Pacific Sales tomorrow to order the refrigerator, washer and dryer and see what I can work out as well as delivery at a yet unknown date and time. I also returned my Time Warner DVR, so I am HDTV less until I decide to cough up the money at the new house.
P.S. I seriously enjoyed the cooler weather today. I really need to invest in a ceiling fan for the office. I just can’t figure out how to do it…
Ryan and I went for a bikeride this morning for the first time since October or November. It actually felt quite good and I’m glad we were finally able to make it happen. We’ve been full of excuses lately, but it has generally been quite easy with the rain or something going on Saturday mornings. I’m thinking I need to find a standard day to go riding during the week as well and get back on track.
After our ride, and blowing off the driveway (which I also haven’t done in weeks) I spent the rest of the morning clearing off my desk. Rather, I was just getting through the mail that had been stacked up on my desk waiting for some attention. Maybe someday I’ll get to the piles of things that have been sitting under or around my desk at home for months and do something with them.
I went to the office this afternoon to install more RAM in our server and get some other minor things done. Batch and Bouse came by and we talked for a while. Before I knew it, I had been there five hours and it was definitely time to get out.
I think I’ve gone the entire week without going inside Costco as hard as that may be to believe. I was there Monday or Tuesday for gas, but that doesn’t really count. I got my rebate in the mail today, so I’ll have to go shopping sometime soon.
I was hoping to get some relaxing in this evening watching a movie or something along those lines, but by the time I got home and made dinner, it was after nine and I didn’t get to reading the lesson for priesthood tomorrow until after ten. I’m hoping after reading it now twice it will all make more sense in the morning and I can get a lesson plan together. I also need to figure out what in the world I’m going to talk about or we’re going to discuss at teacher development next weekend. I just hope I’m not supposed to have anything together for our meetings this week.
