I was able to cross one item off my to-do list this evening when I finally purchased a mattress set. I pretty much knew what I wanted; when I visited my friend Jessica out in New York a couple months ago I loved their guest bed. Not only did I find it extremely comfortable, but after ten nights I really noticed that my back felt a lot better too. If things go as planned, I should be climbing into a bed that is very similar to that one one week from tonight.

Speaking of plans, it turns out the seller of the condo I’m buying canceled her movers for Friday, so it’s up in the air right now as to when I can actually start moving in. Her agent is trying to line up other movers, but otherwise she may not be able to move out until as late as Monday. At this point I don’t even care so much about more delay, though it sets up a weird temporary landlord/tenant situation since the closing is still supposed to be Friday; I just want to know when for sure so I can confirm or reschedule my plans for friends to help me with furniture and whatever else is ready to go on Saturday.

Tomorrow evening I’ll be visiting the condo for my final walkthrough. It’s been nearly two months since the last time I was there to meet with the inspector, so it’ll be nice to see it again.

It’s just about feeling real now. Just about.
