Midsummer RBOC

I can't seem to organize my thoughts into a coherent post, so here are some bullets instead:
  • It's hot and humid again. yuck.
  • I am accomplishing the bare minimum of work that I need to and I feel like a huge slacker. And I really have a lot to do! I can't seem to get motivated to work. This happens to me every summer and I don't know why. 
  • Adding to the previous bullet, we have decided to put our house on the market. We found a beautiful BIG house in the next neighborhood that we want to buy IF we can sell this one. The house is more than twice the size of our current one, but our mortgage payments would be the same (we have a 2nd). The house is in a price range that doesn't sell too quickly around here and has been vacant for some time. I'm trying not to get too excited, in case things don't work out (i.e., this one doesn't sell), but who am I kidding? I already know where I would put all of our furniture in there! I've been doing some de-cluttering around here to prepare and that is certainly going to take up more time that I should be working!
  • I can't believe how hot it's been out in CA. My mom emailed to tell me that it was 107 there (East Bay). The record high for yesterday was 100! I can't remember it ever being that hot when I lived there. Good grief.
I got nothin' otherwise. I wanted to get that neighbor-complaint post off the top. I wonder what they will think when they return from their trip and see a For Sale sign in our yard!!! ha ha ha!

when I lived in california, I lived in the central valley where 107 wouldn't have been out of the ordinary. but 107 in the east bay? holy cow.

Welcome to the group of academics in a funk!

We are thinking of moving too, only out of the area! I am so glad you found something great and in your price range. Hope your house sells soon.

Good luck with the house(s). I would love to see the look on the faces of your neighbors when they see the for sale sign!

I too find it very hard to get motivated to work when it's super hot out.

Well, whenever you start to feel like a slacker, you can always say, "At least I'm getting more done than Luckybuzz!"

And if you've brushed your teeth that day, it's true. :P
