a little stressed

Man. I hate being stressed. Especially when I don't need to be. This house stuff is enough to drive a girl batty. But now that it is in my head we are moving, I want to gettheshowontheroad. I know I am driving Chris crazy, but I just can't help it.

Stressors:
Keeping it clean. Inside and out. Weeds are my new arch enemy.
Wondering if the phone is going to ring for a showing.
Knowing we are priced a little high but not being able to do anything about it. We aren't being greedy, we are just trying to break even people! And I should add, we are not priced high for the house, but we probably are for the market.
Needing to have an open house, ASAP.
Finding a house yesterday that I love and hoping it doesn't slip away before we can snag it.
Worrying if we can afford this new house. Kind of a scary time to be making any huge life changes.
Worrying that I am becoming addicted to HGTV. My new favorites are Real Estate Invervention (Mike Aubrey ROCKS!) and Property Virgins, even though I have had my house buying cherry popped.

Things I need to remember:
We don't have to move.
I have found a great school for Ellie if we are still here in 2 years.
I will be working in 2 years and bringing in some $$.
This is a great house!
There is someone out there who will love my house just as much as I do. And maybe even pay for it!
The house I fell in love with yesterday has been on the market awhile.
This is not life or death.

Ugh.

HATE. BEING. STRESSED.

HATE. OVERTHINKING. EVERYTHING!

This look sums up exactly how I feel.


Wow. It was kind of therapeautic to write that down. I feel a little better.

I so relate to this! You handle these situations like I do--you're stressed about all the details, and you do your darndest to talk yourself out of the stress, rationally. I hope it works! :)

House buying and selling are very, very stressful.

I LOVE that picture of E!!! So cute and the hat is adorable and I love how her little curls are falling down!

I remember buying and selling. Totally stressful. It will all work out!!!

Just remember to breathe. Everything will work out in the end. I totally understand being stressed out though (my wedding is quickly approaching in only 7 weeks!)

P.S. I also LOVE HGTV!
