In the continuing comitragedy of errors that is my real life, I am back in real estate hell, this time with the inlaws. The timeline for their move up closer to us is now the end of May - last weekend they accepted an offer on their old house, had their offer on a new house accepted, and inspections are this week.
Since the in laws are also going to be out of the country for a great deal of the time between now and closing, I have NO idea what our travel plans are going to be. We may not have to travel at all. We may have to show up at their old house on a moment's notice. This continual state of uncertainty is not good for my stomach lining.
Not just figuratively, either. The antacid makers love me right now.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I've been arguing with my state's online payment system. We ended up owing a little to the state, and I wanted to pay it the fastest and most convenient way. Unfortunately, for this state, that's still mailing them a check. Their online system is labyrinthine and designed by chimps that have been hit upside the head one too many times. Or, in short, the 80s called. They want their banking system back.
So, as it's been for most of the last year, my time for Gaia comes and goes. The really frustrating thing about all this is that it's a lot of "hurry up and wait". While I'm waiting, I can play around on Gaia. But when the hurry up comes, everything else has to wait. It means if I have to do something for myself, it gets done NOW, because I might not have the bandwidth later.
Yeah, it's kind of dull, isn't it?
