Our offer was accepted, so now all we have to do is wait for inspections, appraisals, the mortgage, and the closing. I hope all goes well, but so far it has been relatively painless (no rubber gloves or face masks). I am already planning the house warming: a keg of Guinness, a keg of Blue Moon Ale, red velvet cake from Concannon’s since it will be near my birthday, and possibly some QL’s since we will live right down the road. Oh, yeah. I love it. Two blocks to Concannon’s, five or six to the Heorot, and about half a mile to QL’s. What else could a fat kid ask for?
Becky is supposed to hear from Medical Consultants in Muncie about a job. They are supposed to call either today or tomorrow. Think happy thoughts for her. I am sure they will call tomorrow and tell her she has a job, but I am a little biased. I just want her to be happy in her work and confident in herself. And I know she wants to hurry up and finish her degree. Look for a party in Spring of 2009!
I am on my way to work again. Tonight is floor-set. I work from midnight to 2AM. When you go to SBUX in the morning, there will be entirely new, yet still unnecessary, commodities for your perusal. And hopefully you will purchase something so that I can keep working! By the way, there will be some new coffee. Check out the Black Apron. Mmmmmmm, good. And it’s not even Campbell’s soup!
My assistantship starts tomorrow, and I am working at the mission in the afternoon. I plan to have my entire Ph.D. application turned in by Friday. That way I can begin working bit by bit on this paper that I keep putting off! Augh! How I hate to write research papers! 😉 I love the research; it is the writing that will kill a person. All this and a new house.
I’ll keep you posted.
