Thank god it's Thursday. Today is the day I breathe, don't go to campus, and try to get everything done (blogging included). The semester is nearing an end so that means things are getting really busy and as much as I'm looking forward to being home for the holidays, I want time to slow down a little so I can survive my first semester of finals here.
Besides school, teaching, and work here, we've got the matter of The House. Our closing date was mysteriously changed from November 21 to November 24, no big deal but I may be late to class. We're getting quotes on movers so we can get that date finalized and I can spam everyone with the new address so we can get Xmas cards.
We're also doing really grown up things like shopping for appliances; we need a washer, dryer, and fridge which is also a factor in the move date. I am really excited to have in-home laundry again. I do that task on Thursdays and walk a block to the "Clothing Care Center" at our complex. It's not the most convenient way to get the job done but at least I don't have to drive to a laundrymat.
Today is a special day for Austin- the new World of Warcraft expansion pack comes out today and he's waiting for the sound of a delivery truck. For those who don't know, WoW is an online game and highly addictive, it's also Austin's preferred passtime and stress-buster. I'm having a hard time finishing this post because he's like a kid waiting for Santa and keeps popping out of his office to say something about it. :-)
All in all, we're busy and a little stressed but really happy (and will be moreso when FedEx shows up).
