I just figured something out--when I'm stressed-out I can't write my blog! Just like when I'm stressed-out I can't eat...I guess I have to be in a good mood to do both!
As usual, I've been upset over this crazy real estate transaction.
Saturday was a low point--I "lost it" and literally cried all day. There was a new setback with the deal that was not only frustrating but extremely unfair and I started panicking that after putting our lives on hold for over a year to get this done, we were going to lose out to a ridiculous situation and I had no idea what we were going to do next. It was a miserable day and I ruined it for everyone.
Then Sunday was stressful all day long until very late in the day when things were really looking up and we were all excited.
Then Monday was awful and stressful when things took a bad turn around lunch time and things looked bleak, but then looked a little more hopeful toward the end of the day.
Now, as I write this on Tuesday night (and I just watched the season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey--OMG!!!) we are in limbo again.
This real estate transaction has been like riding a roller coaster in a nightmare! I think we could have made a crazy reality show on the drama surrounding it! Or maybe a movie?
Dona and I decided that if our saga were to be a movie, this would be the cast:
Me--Angelina Jolie (it's my movie--I can do what I want!)
Our realtor--Robin Williams
The listing broker--Bette Midler
"Mr. Howell" the seller--We would have to resurrect Jim Backus to do his role justice
Anyway--now you know that if I've gone "underground" it's because I'm worrying and not eating and too depressed to write. And there's been a lot to write about this week too! I'll try to elaborate when I feel better, but in short:
--One of our ferrets died (while she was staying with friends--part of the real estate/house showing ordeal).
--She succumbed to an illness with the menacing name "Green Slime Disease."
--We had a ferret funeral.
--We caught a raccoon.
--But not the one we wanted to catch.
--We discovered "Happy Hour" at my favorite sushi place.
--Pickle has done and said lots of cute new things.
--Example: This morning she said to me "Mommy, you're my best friend in the world and you are my superhero." CUTE!!
--I started a new drawing class.
Sorry I've been such a slacker. I need to get this deal done STAT!
