Updates all Around

Let's all keep our fingers crossed that we get a good offer this week. We've had more people look at our house in the past three days than we ever had. We had two appointments on Friday, four on Saturday and over a dozen people/families come by at the open house today. The realtor said that two of the families have their children in the private Christian school around the corner and they live far away and want to move closer to the school since they go for drop offs/pickups around three times a day. Sounds very promising. The only competition we really have is the neighbors next door's house that's on the market too, but it seems people like our house better, which is good, as we're asking a little more than them.

We had the QA walkthrough at the new house on Thursday. It went well. Identified a bunch of dings in the walls I want them to spackle/repaint and some scratched up cabinet doors. Real minor things. You really had to look for them. I'm good at that. My detail oriented skills got a good workout.

Work was really rough on Friday. Disk space allocation issues. We were at 99-100% allocated for the better part of the day. We had some files manually pushed off to HSM, but I'm not sure why auto-migration didn't pick them up automatically. I have some server reports to analyze tonight to figure that out. Sorry for the work-speak. I had to get it out of my system.

All that has been keeping my mind somewhat off the two-week wait. It's almost up. Half a week more to go. I can test on Wednesday. I'm really happy I haven't seen any back pain I usually get with PMS yet. I'm hoping if I get it or not, that the back pain part stays away. I've been fighting with that since I had Phoebe. And considering that I've been reading that some childbirths can really take away a lot of a woman's qi, that that was the culprit of a lot of my problems: the back pain, sciatica, low sex drive, PMS, bad periods, etc. I've gotten rid of most of these symptoms with TCM, yoga, diet, and supplements, but the back pain one has really stuck in there.

Oh, I almost forgot, I finished reading a book today that my friend K let me borrow, "Lady Chatterley's Lover." I liked it. It was kind of slow in the beginning, but really good.

Keeping my fingers crossed about selling the house and the upcoming test.
You deserve a break - I hope it comes to you this month. I've got everything crossed. :)
