Procrastination Station

I know I’m really late in posting Cooper’s 32 month letter, and I only have 12 days until it’s time for his 33 month letter, but there is good reason…

First of all, our house sold after 3.5 weeks on the market, yay!  We are set to close on Aug. 25th.  We will be moving into an apartment next weekend, boo!  Our new house should be ready before Christmas, knock on wood!  Have we packed, yet?  No.  Do we have a moving truck reserved?  No.  Why are we procrastinating so bad?  I don’t know.  I think, subconsciously, that it’s because we are not at all excited about having to live in an apartment for 4 months. 

Secondly, the photographer I work for has had some major personal issues going on which caused her to get way behind, which in turn, caused me to get way behind after a couple of weeks of having nothing to work on.  I have been slammed with a ton of work for the last three weeks, most of which was past due.  I’m finally starting to get caught up, though, so that’s good.

Thirdly, P90X is very time consuming.  You work out everyday for atleast an hour.  Most workouts end up being an hour and a half long after you add the ab workout to the routine.  I’m sticking with it, though, because I’m starting to see results.  Each workout is getting easier, I’m adding weight and reps and I’m able to keep up with the ab workout, which I couldn’t even do some of the exercises the first time around.

Lastly, MOPS is starting soon.  We had our Steering Retreat last weekend and it was amazing!  We got the entire year planned and I’m super excited about it.  Jeff purchased the rights to gcnmops.org for us and set it up so I could administer the site.  Didn’t know I was web savvy, did you?  Neither did I!  Actually, we’re using some free software (Joomla) to administer the site and it’s super easy, with lots of tutorials.  Jeff thinks I’m addicted now, but I just want the site to look the way I want it to look, so I’ve spent a lot of time working on it.

Once we get into the apartment, I’m hoping to have some time to sort through all the photos and get Cooper’s letters written.  That is, if we ever get into the apartment.  We got a call from the complex this morning and they said they made a data entry error.  The apartment that we are supposed to be renting (2 bedroom, 2 bath, den and attached garage) was supposed to be vacated this weekend.  Was it?  No.  Apparently they entered the move-out date into the computer incorrectly.  So, we can’t move into that apartment next weekend and they don’t have any others like the floorplan we were wanting available until September.  Did I mention we close on August 25th?  We told the sellers we would be out next weekend so they could do a final walk-through before closing.  The apartment complex is awaiting a response from their regional office to see if they can lease a three bedroom apartment to us for the same price.  We’ll see what happens.

UPDATE:  The guy from the apartment complex just called.  We’re getting the 3 bedroom for the same price, yay!  The downside to all of this is there is no attached garage, and they don’t have any unattached garages available, either.  We were going to use that for storing our appliances, extra furniture, etc.  The upside?  He said he would have ‘his guys’ help us move all our stuff up (it’s a second floor apartment) to the third bedroom for us.   Hopefully, it will all work out.
