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!)
Don--George Clooney
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!

Caught a racoon eh?
Are we keeping the racoon as a pet or letting go for sport?

Sorry about the house!

(Robin Williams, too funny!)

I have been feeling stressed, too! Thankfully just business...I don't think I could survive having a house on the market right's bad enough just trying to keep our business afloat!
I try hard although not very successfully these days to just ride the roller coaster called Life!
Sometimes the dips are fun! :)

OMG agreed on the Real Housewives of New Jersey! I really can not stand Danielle so I found it hilarious to watch!
So sorry about the ferret too! You really have had a bad past few days. Wishing you a better day today! Sending you hugs!

I can't wait until this is over for you! I hope it is soo because that summary sounds like some great stuff is going on.

Rebecca Jo said...

Even SUPERHERO's can get stressed - right? (Is that the cutest comment ever from Pickle????)

Sorry you're feeling so over whelmed! Hopefully it'll all start swinging in a good direction.

And I'd TOTALLY watch that movie.. especially if Mr. Howell was resurrected :)

Oh girl, my heart goes out to ya. This HAS been a reality show for you!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Oh my I can't wait to hear about it all!

i hope everything begins to go your way!

Jen said...

Sorry about your stress. That totally sucks.

Natalie PlanetSmarty said...

I was wondering what happened to you. Hopefully things will look up, and you will get the house of your dreams. I will keep my fingers crossed.

Jenni said...

WHAT is Mr. Howell's deal?? Do you need the internet to go over and kick his ass...because we will!

Hang in there...

Aleta said...

I'm so sorry about the house. I wouldn't be able to blog either (but unfortunately, when I'm upset, I want to eat chocolate).

Sending positive thoughts and prayers that everything is done with quickly for you and you can get back to blogging happily!

Oh Jennifer I know EXACTLY how you feel. I haven't been posting because it brings me down and I don't want to complain on my blog all the time. So, I really didn't want to post until I was back in my house. But, dang, its been 4 months..... anyway, I can totally relate. I'm glad you finally got a signed contract so you can move forward. Limbo sucks!
