Tomorrow the appraiser comes to well appraise the house. Another step in this seemingly endless house closing. He is going to be here at 8:30am. Way too early by my standards, but since we are crunched for time, I agreed to it. Termite inspector on Friday isn’t coming til 10. Much more reasonable in my opinion.
It is looking more and more like we will NOT be closing on time. Which sucks big time. I’ve mentioned this before, but somehow they lost our abstract. Now, without getting all real estatey, the abstract is similar to the title in every other state. But the abstract tracks every owner of a piece of real property since its creation. So literally it could be 100s of pages long. Luckily our home has had 2 owners prior to us. So a special type of lawyer has to sit down and write up a new abstract. It should be able to be done by a brain dead flatliner, but no we have to get a lawyer to do it. Insert me bitching about more money being spent here.
I made an appointment for a tour of DMACC-Ankeny campus. She said they would show me around the campus in general and point out the buildings I have classes in specifically. I am cool with that. It’s not University size (if you counted all the empty space around the campus, you might rival some Universities in size) but it is a fairly large campus. Plus I have to go up there to buy my English book, so its all good, next week Wednesday I will be back at DMACC. Proof that I wasn’t ready to go before, I never even considered doing the Returning to School thing, or taking the tour.
Tomorrow will be a long day. Getting up for the appraiser and then staying up to register for classes FINALLY. Yup, midnight is getting harder and harder to stay up for. Today I actually was up at 8. I am gonna be ready for those 6am wake ups that start in 21 days (doh, that is 3 weeks from today, eek but just a tiny eek). 2 weeks of 6am wake ups, I can do it. I’ve done it before.
Anxiety is still kinda low. My therapist says I need better anxiety coping skills. LOL. Better infers I have some to improve. I don’t think I have any anxiety coping skills. She recommended getting some “thinking clay” and playing with that. Nah. I am good once the thing starts, its getting to the thing that causes me all the anxiety. And really my anxiety is not much, certainly not enough to have to apply coping skills to.
The cold that Teresa brought back from New York did a number on me (and her too). I’m not sure I am totally over it, but I can’t “be sick” any longer. Got things to do, places to go, people to see. Any way you look at it, I shouldn’t be contagious any more.
I put in the order for school supplies from Amazon today. They will be here in 2 days, except for the folders, which will be here on the 26th I think. Anyhow, plenty ahead of time. That way if I forgot something I absolutely need, I have time to order it still. Look at me, planning ahead. Heh, either I am thinking smartly or I have done this too many times before, probably a bit of both.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is on the list of charities.
