Finally, I'm doing better!
It took quite a while. I dragged myself to work yesterday, and managed to do a little bit. Today, I was able to accomplish a lot more. I talked to some people about some software we want to install on our system, talked about a possible new proposal with some other folks, and arranged to refinance our mortgage.
Yeah, that's right! I refinanced the old 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage that's two percentage points lower. The payment is only $50-75 more than what we're paying now, and we own the house in half the time. We just have to wait for the appraisal and then the backlog of other refinances, and we should have the paperwork signed within six weeks!
