An afterthought too. Does it matter if the fg is stable if it's already below my target?

Yes it does matter if the fg is stable rather than below target. Target is just that. A prediction. If you bottle at target and it continues to drop you risk bottle bombs. That is not just gushing beer when you open them but actual exploding bottles.

Use a little patience and wait a couple more days.

You say you have a busy week ahead and want to hurry your beer. Why not be a bit more patient and bottle when you have more free time. It won't hurt the beer to sit for another week or even another month. Even if it sits in the fermenter for another 3 months it will be fine. The upside of leaving the beer longer is that the yeast will have time to settle out and compact on the bottom of the fermenter instead of going in your bottles to leave you with a lot of sediment and the beer will begin to mature giving you even better tasting beer when you do get it bottled.
