And the folks who were going to buy the bed frame had their car break down, so they didn't show and (after I texted them) they texted me and apologized, saying they weren't going to get it. Charming. But at least maybe I can still sell the whole thing now.

I put the file up with the books listed, and have already sold several online. I'm waiting to hear back on another short stack of them, and two people are probably coming over on Saturday to look at the collection in person. So far, so good.

I mailed out the fingerprints and the form to the FBI for the criminal records check the visa application requires. Gods only know how long that will take. I'll have to go down to the Federal Building in Seattle sometime soon to get records from the VA, as I have to request them in writing, and I'm convinced it will take less time if I just sit in line rather than mailing in a request. I'll be able to get them that day instead of waiting for weeks.

Brian got back to me about the water damage in the guest bathroom and will have the association's repair contractor contact me to come and see what they need to do to fix it, both from my end and in the unit above me. At least I won't have to pay for it!

And now I am tired and am going to try getting some sleep, as I have to haul books over to the mailbox place to check on postage before the real estate agents come by at 3:30.

I hauled some books down to the mailbox outlet to have shipping quotes so I can send books to people. One person has already paid the shipping and I'll send her box out probably tomorrow or Monday. Still waiting on the others.

After that, I did some dishes and stuff around the house, then the real estate people came over briefly to look at the place. They are not currently usually doing short sales but they said the place was definitely salable, and that they would get back to me next week with their thoughts. I suspect they will refer me to someone in their office who does a lot of this. That's fine with me. The guy used to work for a bank and do short sale stuff all the time, so he does have a clue about the process.

This afternoon [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor and I hauled her little inflatable boat out to the lake and floated around for a bit. It was a gorgeous sunny day in the low 80s. We both slathered ourselves with sunscreen and we didn't stay out for too long, so I am hoping that neither of us will be all crispy.

Last night [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson and one of his friends came by after I got back from picking up some juice. The friend, from Europe, said that he didn't think the Italian consulate would even know how to find an American credit rating, so he thought it would probably not matter what happened with the condo as long as there wasn't a bankruptcy or something. I don't know for sure how much he knows about this kind of thing or if that is even true, but he has apparently lived in several European countries, so there is at least a chance he might be correct. I still don't want to do anything that will hurt me too badly, but it did make me feel a little bit better about this whole thing.

And here below are a couple of photos from our boat trip on the lake today. )
