Well, kinda quiet around here lately. Due to the number of irons in the fire, the next week may bring more of the same.
Much of the past week was spent studying for the GMAT. It seemed to pay off as I ended up scoring a 690 during the test on Monday, well above my goal of 650. Now all I have to do is not screw up my applications to Carlson and St. Thomas. I have less than a month to complete the Carlson application, and then a month after that to finish up things for St. Thomas.
After that, well, there will be a baby to deal with.
Aside from some nice comments on one of my condo photos, we still have no news on selling our current place. We’ve had a lot of showings, including a number of repeats, but no offers yet. We still seem to be more than competitive with similar condos in the area, but they generally seem to be sitting, too. Regardless, it’s pretty clear we’re going to be having the baby here, so we’re starting to work on contingency plans. Among them may be me getting a laptop so we can get rid of my desk and put a crib in its place. This place is going to get really small really quick.
Speaking of baby, or, at least, its soon-to-be parents, Lisa and I are heading to Chicago this weekend for a “babymoon.” (As is probably obvious, the trip was Lisa’s idea.) The weather isn’t looking that great, but it’s about as late in the year as we could push the trip. Lisa’s quickly approaching the point where they may be a shift from “glowing mom to-be” to just “really, really pregnant,” and if that happens mobility will likely become a problem.
