my life is revolving around a house purchase right now. All of a sudden we are making life decisions.
I sorta like just being "drifters", living in whatever home the military provides us when we move every few years. Thinking of settling down is scary for a girl who has never lived longer than 7 years in one place her entire life.
I have been on an emotional roller coaster..I really want this! Can we afford this? They'll never accept our offer! What if they DO accept our offer?!?! How much is a home inspection? What is PMI? If it's anything like PMS, get me outta here! And on and on.
Then...THEN!!! I'm driving around town and I see another house that I simply loved from the curb. Ugh. My stomach can't take this wild ride. I am going to look at this one today. I secretly hope it's awful. I just don't know what I would do if this is just as nice as the other one. My husband will slap his head in exasperation and ban me from calling my realtor to look at more houses. Even the kids are confused and exasperated at my lack of commitment to one house. All they want is their own rooms. :)
So..here we are..I am anxiously awaiting the phone call that will get me rolling toward the new showing. The kids have taken an extended lunch and I've let them linger too long. Time to get back on task and forget about houses for awhile. If that's even remotely possible.
