SWMBO is beside herself.

We don't know if we have a new home or not.

I emailed the realtor today and asked her.  She has not responded.

Then we went to our Credit Union to apply for a small loan to cover our moving expenses.  We have not heard yet.

Judy (SWMBO) is having the dreads.  I try to keep reminding her that we are doing this in the midst of the holidays.  People (even realtors and money loaners) have other things on their mind.  Just wait until Thursday (I say) when it will be a New Year and the bloodsuckers will be hungry for new meat.

Oh, that's unkind of me.  I apologize.  (Heh-heh-heh)

So, basically, I have nothing to report to you, dear readers.

Except . . . it is December 30th.  In a little over an hour, the mighty Arizona State University Sun Devils will begin their domination of the Texas Tech Red Raiders in this year's Holiday Bowl telecast on ESPN.  I will be pleased.  

SWMBO will be closeted somewhere else.

Tomorrow will take care of itself.

All is well.

I do hope this move works out for you and all the pieces fall into place. Moving can be so stressful, as I'm sure you know. Take care and Happy New Year.

As a Texas Tech alum it pains me to say this, but I fear your bowl prediction is spot on. :(

Good luck with the leeches.

Good luck as you sail on this sea of uncertainty and change. It is always difficult and can be a challenge. Very little gets done this time of year and that is probably a factor. Wising you the best in this change so your new year will be Happy.

As we say in Germany, "Guten Rutsch" into the new year.

I just try to keep my cool. Happy New Year, Stephen.

Franklin Bruce Taylor said...

Woe is I. Serves me right for being so cocky.

Franklin Bruce Taylor said...

Yes, the holidays are definitely not the time to get anything done. Happy New Year to you and yours.

Franklin Bruce Taylor said...

Happy New Year to you, amigo.

Thérèse said...

We keep our fingers crossed for you. And a lot of zen for the new move ahead.

The Geezers said...

I hope the move works itself out; most life events do, eventually.

Um, sorry about the Sun Devils.

Franklin Bruce Taylor said...

Nothing like good zen! Thanks, Therese, and Happy New Year to you and yours.

Franklin Bruce Taylor said...

Yes, the credit union thing worked out today so now all we have to do is hear on the house.

Your sympathy fits in well today but Arizona is handling Boston College so far. Happy New Year to you and all the Geezers.
