Sunday Summary: Showing

We had our first actual showing on our house Thursday afternoon. So, we spent most of that day making sure the house was cleaned up and in decent order. Which meant I fell a bit behind on my writing goals that day. But the people who looked at the house are apparently interested. Just waiting to hear more about that. Of course, we can’t finish applying for a mortgage to get the new house until my husband is back to work full time. Usually that would have happened earlier this month. Right now, they’re saying it might be the second week of May. He’s been looking at new jobs, so hopefully we won’t have to go through this unemployment mess every winter.

I did manage to catch up on my goals on Saturday. And I only have a little to finish up this month. Though there’s a couple things I just won’t get to. That’s okay. I’ll carry them over to next month.

  1. Inconsistency is a terrible thing to have in an employer. I mean, I understand that certain kinds of work are seasonal (or at least weather/life) dependent, but… I totally sympathize. Hopefully you all find a mix that works well long term for you.
