The good and the bad

The good is that I sold my piano and my dishwasher. That's less to worry about when I move. The bad is that the loan that was approved for me was ripped out from under. The lender decided to make no more loans on mobile homes. Fortunately, the sales person hunted down another lender who thinks there will be no problem. I talked to the guy the other day and he did a preliminary approval. Now I just need to get the papers in the mail, fill them out, send them in. Should work.

The delays on the house just keep coming. One problem with this is that I have a tendency to do nothing else until an issue like this is resolved. Until I know the path (I don't know when I will have to be out of the house and away, for example), my mind is in flux and I don't like to take on other things in my life. "I'll wait until I'm in the new house," I tell myself. At this point, though, I think it would be well for me to tackle the other things.

The other bad. I dropped my external hard drive the other day. It went into impossible loud spin land. Destroyed. I offered it on freecycle and when I got a taker I asked him if he manages to recover the files would he make copies for me. It is full of photographs, nothing else, so there isn't any privacy issue. He said he'd be glad to do that if he succeeds in saving the drive. I know how very difficult it is to repair a hard drive, though. Of course if he does repair it, it's still his.

The other good. This slow move means that I am gradually sorting through things, getting rid of stuff, storing stuff, and contemplating how what's left will be arranged in my new house. I am rearranging what is left in my "office" area and trying it out. It's good for me to have this opportunity, this long-term "clean sweep".

    I suppose it is the curse of anyone who is musical to be unable to ignore music. I am plagued by the piped in music in stores and I choke when I hear…

    Yesterday I went downtown three times. The first time I passed by the pasty place and decided to stop and get one. The second time was to pick up a…
