After looking at three places, I may have settled on a new place to live. I'm meeting with the owner tonight to talk details and see if it's possible. I may still poke around at one or two other possibilities, but the pickings in my price range are slim, so I don't want to let a good opportunity slip through my fingers.
After doing a lot of research and meeting with a dealership on Friday, I was hopeful I'd have a new car by the end of this week, but I don't think that's going to happen. Still, the process is moving forward apace, so with a little more work I hope to have one by the end of the year.
Yesterday and today have been spent packing up my office at work, as we're getting new carpeting installed. Also, last night was the library holiday party. My mom's "Cha-Cha Chicken" was a hit as usual, but I may have had a little too much champagne. :) Lots to do still before I leave for break, though.
If all goes as planned I'll be home Christmas weekend spending it with family. Alas, because of the moving situation, I'm going to turn around and head right back and use my week off to pack, pack, and then pack some more. With luck I'll be able to make it out for New Year's Eve, but I'm not counting on it.
So, lots of puzzle pieces falling into place, even if I have to use a hammer to make 'em fit. :)
