Somebody take me away? Calgon? Anybody?

Well, I sure hope that all this good activity buzzing around means something good is actually going to happen sooner rather than later, because this job is about to run me right up the wall. I. HATE. IT. Phone calls and proactives and asking for money and bills and whiny people and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH!!!!!!!!! No, nothing specifically bad happened, it's just a build-up of lots of little shit that's making me crazy.

On the bright side, I checked on realtor.com just for grins. Remember that groovy little townhouse for sale in my old neighborhood? It's still there, and the asking price has come down $8000! How sweet would it be if I could move, buy a new house free and clear, and have NO house payment and NO car payment? That would be outstanding! I know I'm not there yet, but it sure is fun to think about. There are two other properties for sale there, too, one of the larger townhouses (a little more expensive but still within the acceptable price range) and one of the houses (probably too expensive, but still nice to think about). If Baylor works out, I will absolutely FAINT, I'll be so excited. Then we'll just have to send Brian good vibes for a permanent teaching gig at Baylor.

Oh, and Waco has a Montessori school! If I could manage to have no house payment and no car payment, that might be an option for J. Faint. I would absolutely, positively faint with excitement.

Sending happy thoughts for all the things you want to have happen. My daughter is a nanny for a couple of kids that go to a Montessori school and she is really impressed with them. (the school... not the kids... lol)

House sounds great! I hope it works out for you. Believe me, it's nice not having a house payment. I inherited my house from my grandfather. It's an old house, and needs a lot of work but it's mine... We are doing the work and paying for them as we go... I have pics posted in my archives.

Lisa how great!!! I will keep my fingers crossed for you on all fronts... There was a Montessori school in Tucson where I used to live and I never heard anything but raves about it. Also I will be sending you some mental calgon vibes :)
