Sunday reflection

I've been quiet this week. There's so much going on in my life I don't have any energy left to write even a blog. LOL! I want to finish up the re-release of Wrath of the Goddess, but it probably won't happen until after the move.

The move... Closing on our new home is scheduled to Thursday. If it'll happen or not is still in the stars. I've overcome more obstacles than anyone wants to hear about and even had to play AC technician to get the house through inspections. After managing to fix something I know zilch about I thought it would finally be downhill.

By now, I think the Universe is teasing me. It keeps tossing new obstacles in my way to see if I'm persistent enough to make it, or if I'll give up. Nothing you really want comes easy, right?

The last obstacle appeared this morning in the form of my employer's new payroll service. I need one final pristine paystub to appease the bank. Somehow, they've managed to lose almost $200. I need the money, of course, but I need the document even more.

I don't have all that much experience with US Payroll services, but I've spent enough time talking to our previous one to know that nothing comes easy. There's always a million bureaucratic reasons to why something can't be done. I'm guessing they've messed something up with my taxes, health insurance, or maybe the holiday pay for July 4th... Whatever it might be, I'm sure they won't just agree to fix it and issue a new document.

This time, however, I can't afford to be too nice and understanding. They have to fix it, because I have to have it. I might have to go down to their office and sit on them until someone brings out a typewriter and does it manually. LOL!

Why the big deal, you might ask? Well, if the closing has to be postponed because of their blunder, we'll have to store all our stuff and live in a hotel, because we have to be out of this rental by end of month. This time there's no wiggle room.

I'd better get off the computer and get back to packing. It's fascinating how much stuff I've managed to collect during my few years in the US! Hopefully I'll be back by the computer soon, with good news.

A new look for the 250th anniversary

I don't know exactly how old my 18th century cottage is - the local history association says we know it was there in 1772, so it was pro...
