Today has been much better than yesterday so far. I'm getting back into work and not feeling so lost and out of touch. Long vacations are great, but it makes it so much harder to come back to the everyday grind. I also talked to my mom last night - we don't need to move out by August 10th, we need to have a bunch of our furniture in storage by August 10th so my dad can get more work done on the house. Big huge difference there. My brother should know by tomorrow whether or not he got the job. I've already done a lot of searching online for apartments, and I've also contacted an agency that searches for you for free (they're paid by the apt. complexes), so I'm feeling fairly confident that we'll find a place that will suit us in our price range. We're aiming to move on September 1st. The only thing that makes me nervous is signing a lease - I don't know if I want to commit to a year. My life is in such a stage of flux that even when I do move, I don't intend to unpack entirely. Of course, that's nothing new as I haven't entirely unpacked for the past 6 years or so. So I don't know.
My niece's birthday party isn't until the 2nd, which means I actually DO get this weekend to sleep and recover. You have no idea how happy that thought makes me.
