Psst, is anyone else up? No?

*sigh* I thought not.

It’s been awfully quiet around here because, uh, I’ve been doing all my blogging in my sleep. Between huge commitments at work – trying to complete two weeks’ worth of projects in 4 days, ‘hunting, revising paperwork, prepping wardrobe attire, catching up on the occasional news update (Hello, Mr. President!) and all, it’s no wonder I haven’t been coherent. It’s hard to see through your eyelids…

Little update:

Truck
Looks like we have a buyer! We’re holding a $300 deposit pending the receipt of the title. I was first told it’s a standard 10 biz-day processing before the title is sent, but I’ve been looking for ways around that. Initially, the only thing they suggested was to provide a FedEx account number so that at the end of the 10 days, Toyota could just overnight my title, but that only saves me a day or two, and costs money. Meh, not a fan. After making another call to the same call center, I got a nice lady who suggested that I fax her a copy of my bank statement showing the payoff amount debited from my account. With that information, she could begin the paperwork for the title immediately. She gave me a fax number and I’ve pulled that paperwork together.

Being the suspicious sort, though, I made one more call to see if there was anything else she needed to complete the paperwork. Also to verify that this one lady wasn’t trying to pull any funny business with getting my bank statement. 🙂 No, guess it’s standard -expediting- procedure.

So: Faxed. Done! That buyer better not back out! *glare*

The Hunt
Rescheduled the appointment again: first, had to change the flight itself for an earlier arrival. Then had to change the arrival time again. Bah. Is this disorganization on their part? Or just scheduling issues? Whatever the case, I’m on a mission to knock their socks off tomorrow, wish me luck! *singing* “On the road again ….”

Finances
Picked up another little overtime check, and finally received my holiday check as well. That’s e-fund and moving money.

Ok, I’m starting to get a little dotty. Better sign off and get on going!

    Good luck! I have my first-round job interview today. I also heard 2 days ago that I got a one year job based on submitting a research proposal rather than an interview.

  2. Karen says:

    I’m excited that the truck has a potential buyer!

    things, they are a-happenin for you!!

    I’m psyched that you were able to expedite the truck-buying process. seriously, that is something that i would have given up on at the first sign of ‘not possible.’ way to be tenacious!

    also, I have the biggest ever GOOD LUCK for the interview enclosed in this comment!

    mOOm: How’d it go?

    Karen: Me too!

    Sense: You know, I was sort of deflated by it since it’s taken so long, but persistence might really have paid off here. I’ve got my fingers crossed and will be watching the mail tomorrow and Monday.

    Thank you thank you! 🙂

    I guess it went well. The told me late Friday that they want me to come in to give a presentation and second round interview.

  6. Good luck on the appointment!

    Also, it is great that the truck has a buyer–what a relief!

    You know, for some reason your rss feed always show up in my reader way delayed. Like today your last four posts showed up all at once, and one of them was from… tuesday? I doubt it is your fault, but it is pretty weird.

    moom: Presentations freak me out.

    stackingpennies:What RSS feed do you use? I have no idea why it would do that, though…

    Well I am a professional presenter… i.e. a teacher 🙂 As well as a researcher who also need to present but less often…
