Cleaning Up the Mess

I had a fabulous time last night at the Underwear Show at Cafe California - it was so much fun!  The food was delicious, the performers were hot, and there were cool prizes too!

Lucy won a gift basket, filled with chocolates, teas, crackers, and a bottle of white wine and a bottle of Amarula.  Very kindly, Lucy let me have the bottle of Amarula, some chocolates and crackers, and the actual basket in which everything came packaged up.

I was thrilled about the chocolates and the Amarula, sure, but I was even more so about the basket.  It enabled me tidy up and organize everything that's on my desk.  I always breathe a sigh of relief  when I'm able to organize at least a small corner of my life.  I guess it soothes my need to have some control, self-deternination, and orderliness in my life.

I slept in untiil 10am because I felt like I deserved an extra bit of rest.

Unfortunately, as always, real life came floodimg back as soon as I was fully awake.

 There was another delay in the sale of the condo.  The buyer decided go to a whole different mortgage company and have the condo re-appraised.  Bruce and I went along with this plan because we didn't want to have the deal fall through.  Hopefully, the re-appraisal of the condo and final closing won't be too long!

And so, life continues to go on and on ... and on and on and on ....   Whether it was breaking loose at Cafe California, or getting to sleep in, or perhaps I`m just used to this ridiculous situation - whatever it is, I feel equipped to deal with everything now.

Tomorrow, I send emails to my mom`s accountant re the CRA $30,000 tax bill, to my financial advisr Trevor re the progress of myRSDP account, and one to our lawyer re whether or not there`s a light at the end of the tunnel yet concerning the condo.

One way or another, this whole tangled mess will will get cleaned up.
