One step forward, two steps back

The next batch of referrals have started to arrive at some agencies. For the first time since I've been following the rumors (which is for over a year now), there were no rumors as to when this batch would be sent and what days they would go through. Still not completely sure on the latter but it's looking like July 14 through July 22-24. Not too good. Last month's referrals covered 15 days. This month's will only cover 9-11 days. If the CCAA could just complete the very simple task of updating their website in a timely manner, there would be no need to still be guessing on the closing date but...

I didn't think it was possible but the CCAA has just worsened what I considered to be my worst case scenerio- Dec referral with Feb travel. Now I'm thinking the worst case looks more like Feb referral with April travel.

On the upside, with the last batch of referrals arriving so late last month (July 31), in addition to the fact that the CCAA continued it's office move and gave their entire staff (half at a time) a full week off work, this referral group, such as it is, came in about two weeks earlier than what I was expecting.
