It seems we are in a gigantic holding pattern all the way around. Maybe more me than Seth, but in any case, nothing is happening with anything at the moment.
We had our second open house this weekend. This time we tried Saturday from 1-4pm and escaped our house for a few hours to go house hunting. It's really frustrating to house hunt while your own house hasn't sold. It's hard not to get wrapped up in trying to decide which house to go for b/c as soon as you head down that road, you remember you can't do jack until that house is sold. Poo.
We left around 12:15 and around 12:30 or so we got a call from the centralized showing service letting us know someone wanted a SECOND showing from 1-3pm! So we're thinking a 2 hour second showing is GOOD news, but so far, we've heard nothing from it. Usually, the agent that shows it to their clients leave us feedback but even that didn't happen. We got the report this morning after checking our email like crazy yesterday saying "No comments were left." ARGH! So we have no idea if that person has ruled our our place or if they are working on making an offer. We're totally in the dark on this and just have to wait.
Secondly, I've not heard anything about the job I applied for over a month ago. Just last week (this tells you how NOT in a hurry they are) I got the card from the agency acknowledging that they received my application, but that's just a courtesy they do to let you know your application was processed. I have no idea what the person doing the hiring is doing/thinking. Is he on vacation? Is he looking over apps? Perhaps he's already interviewed and I didn't get one. Who knows? Again, I'm completely in the dark on this and just have to wait it out. I'll either get offered an interview or I'll get a letter in several weeks rejecting me and then I'll know it's over.
Lastly, I can't wait until I'm done with school. I swear I'm never going back after this. It's too much to have 3.5 hours of class 3 nights a week. All I want to do is go to work and come home and be a normal person. I long for that so bad that sometimes it hurts. I don't want to wish time away, but I can't wait for May 7th! I want to be done so bad I don't think I'm going to go to the "graduation" ceremony - it's a week after we're done with classes and at this point, I just don't care to go. It's also in the middle of a work day and I can imagine there will be other students who can't even get off of work. I had wanted to take a mini-vacay the week after to celebrate being done.
Until then, I'll just hurry up and wait.
