1. The latest report from people in the know tells me that I may be closing on the house as early as February 4th. That’s next Friday. The Friday one week from today. Oh my god.

3. Let’s all think of this quote from Ayn Rand, because Ayn wouldn’t panic at the thought of moving:
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
