This whole thing where I don't sleep between 3 am and 5 am is not really working for me. I took a benadryl and even that wasn't enough to combat the itching for a while. Why do we need mosquitoes again?
On the plus side, I already had the high key "I'm going to be homeless come October 1!" freakout to L and she talked me down (...so I might catastrophize a little. I've actually gotten much better at not doing it over the years, but this whole thing really trips my anxiety wires), so I didn't freak out too much last night when I transferred $$$ to my checking account in order to cover the check for 10% of the down payment when I go to sign the contract tomorrow.
It's still a tentative appointment at the moment (I will be confirming shortly), but yesterday afternoon I got a call from the mortgage broker, who was like, "Mike just told me you had an accepted offer. You didn't call and tell me!" (Mike is my lawyer. He works in the office next door to the mortgage broker.) and I said the realtor had told me not to until I had the signed contract, and she was like, "I like to get ahead of the game so you don't have to come in to sign stuff twice!" Especially since I have to take the LIRR to get there (the pitfalls of using people recced by family members who live on Long Island), which means leaving work at like 12:30 tomorrow. Eep!
Keep your fingers crossed, folks. This could be one step closer!
And since it's Wednesday, we've got books!What I've just finishedThick as Thieves
by Megan Whelan Turner. I meant to reread the whole series before this but didn't get to it. I didn't really need to either, as it wasn't heavily dependent on previous books (...though I guess the Attolian's identity was? Though who else could it have been?). There was a lot more ersatz Assyrian poetry than I was expecting, ( spoilers )
So I definitely recommend it if you've enjoyed the series so far, and if you haven't read the whole series, I highly recommend it. The second book especially is AMAZING.What I'm reading nowAftermath: Empire's End
by Chuck Wendig, since it came from the library. It's fine, I guess. It's mostly the events leading up to the battle of Jakku. We finally get more Mon Mothma POV and ( spoilers )What I'm reading next
