TIP FOR THE WEEK: Things may be moving slower than you would like right now. The trick is not to care.
As much as you would love to move forward with your plans, there is still some problem that needs to be worked out first. Another person who is involved needs a little more time in order to deal with some issues. Within a short period of time you should have the information you need and then it will be smooth sailing.
