Condo Update

My dad just told me I need to diversify my workouts. (By the way, my dad is super fit & athletic with 6% body fat - annoying, huh?)

At this point, I'm trying to just get anything in. So diversifying isn't really an issue.

I was hoping my condo would close today, but the stinkin' bank needs to sign ONE stinkin' piece of paper. We've been waiting for 3 days. I discovered the secret unknown 3-day rule in the escrow process. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING takes a minimum of 3 days. Even if it's just when someone has to fax something. 3 days. Email something. 3 days. I just don't understand how this process is so convoluted.

BUT I have to admit that this 2nd go-around is so so so so so much easier. Everything has just worked out, without much hassle or fuss. I'm not even scheduled to close until next Wed but we have everything done except this one signature needed thing.

So the plan is that I'm meeting with my painter tomorrow to get a quote. Hopefully can get it painted the day after I close. Then get the carpet guy and flooring guy (different people) to come the following weekend. THEN I can start moving in. I have been saving, saving, saving for so long that I can't wait to get to SHOP SHOP SHOP - I have so much to buy. Weeeeeeeeeeee

Workout plan is 6 or 7 mile run on Sat and Bikram on Sunday. NOt sure what I'm going to do tonight. I forgot to pack my workout clothes so I have to go all the way home. I might just go for a walk or something.

Wow! Your dad is really fit!! I can't imagine my parents being more fit than me, haha!

That's SO great about your condo. It sounds like you've worked hard to get to this point and obviously deserve it, so ENJOY the shopping process!! You'll have to post some pics of it once you're all moved in!

You've convinced me to do Bikram on a regular basis. I have only done it three times over the last 5 months, but every time I go I reap rewards.

Diversify, schmerify. That's what I say :)

Congrats again on the condo purchase. It's no fun going through and waiting for the final paperwork, but it'll feel so good once you sign those last papers and can pop a bottle of bubbly in your new place!
