Well, I close on my house in 5 days. It’s still very frustrating, working “with” this seller. The last few days before closing are certainly very stressful. Lots of making sure all the paperwork is in order and still being unsure of things until the very last minute.
I’m really glad that I don’t have to move out of my apartment until the end of May. It gives me 2 weeks to get utilities straightened out and purchase a few necesseties – like a fridge! – before I have to move. I may have to hire a mover for the real big stuff but most of it is going to be movable by myself and a few friends, as needed.
Have I packed yet? Nope. I have no idea why I can’t get my ass in gear over this. I guess the last few uncertainties (hard to spell out what they are, however) and all this becoming a reality at all is really keeping me. Work has been fairly time and energy consuming still so some of it is just needing to rest while I have time at home.
We had our last concert of the year last night and it went very well. I presented 3 of the 5 ensembles (1 concert, 2 jazz) and all the kids from all the ensembles received high praise. I’m starting to get a bit emotional about this year ending, however. These seniors were freshmen when I started at Stony Point and I have been with them through quite the adventurous past 4 years. I’m really going to miss them since they won’t be around day in and day out. The one thing I guess I really never have to worry about with being a band director is empty nest syndrome!
Speaking of day in and day out, it’s time for bed. I’m beat.
