I've been avoiding the blog lately. It isn't that I don't love you, I do. It is that I don't think anyone really wants to hear what I have to say. Until now...
#1- (be warned there is vomit ahead) The puke fairy visited again. This time is was me and not the Madelou. (at least not yet...) On Monday I thought I was coming down with a cold. By 5pm I was feeling so sick I was crying. Two hours later I was officially sick and felt better almost immediately. That is until the next morning when that cold I thought I was getting decided to kick in.
#2- I love the warmer weather, but it is hard to enjoy it when you don't want to be too far away from home and your head feels like it is going to explode. Yep, I can even complain about things that I was wishing for just days ago. I am that person. Who wants to read about that? Not me?
#3-We still haven't heard anything about the house. That's not really true... we heard today that we are in the same place we were last week, waiting. Waiting for the bank with no recourse to push for action. We are still vulnerable to a higher bid coming onto the table. We are stuck in limbo. We are between getting our house ready to be placed on the market (which is a whole hell of a lot of work) and not doing anything. We don't want to leave everything for a one week scramble if we do get the house, but what if we repaint the kitchen, do all the touch ups, replace the gutters, clean the hell out of this place and pack up 1/2 of our belongings just to find out we don't get the house?
#4- closely related to #3 is WHAT IF WE GET THIS HOUSE?!?!?! Now I know that might sound crazy, because we want this house soooooo badly, but honestly this is a huge leap for us. We will make it work and it is a huge opportunity for our family. But holy crap. I guess that is the worry for all new (larger) home buyers right? Please tell me it is. Please?
#5- did I mention I was sick?
#6- I am feeling overwhelmed with work, but not really motivated to do anything about that. That is the worst situation because I am totally to blame.
#7- did I mention this house thing was stressing me out?
Ok, I think that is it. Sorry for the whine fest. I am feeling a little better. Although Norman Gentle just made it through to the top 36 on American Idol so I'm feeling a little sick to my stomach.
