My Spirit is Crushed.....

So, our house is off the market. Not because it sold, but because our 6-month contract expired and so did the listing. We have not heard from the realtors (which is no surprise since they have been awful with communicating with us from the beginning.)

I just feel at a loss. Andy is trying to contact the realtors, but I haven't heard anything about that yet. His aunt had referred us to them since she works in the relocation department for Coldwell Banker, but apparently their office is closed today for President's Day. And he can call the relo company that is working with the company Andy works for and have them give us a referral.

BUT - we are here!!!! and a new realtor means new contracts to sign and that we probably need to go back and give them a tour of the house and tell them stuff about it. Although, I should still have all the documents I typed up on for the current/old (whatever they are now) realtors.

I just feel like we are being beaten down. I was feeling good this morning because I did lose weight this week after hitting a plateau last week. But those nice feelings have quickly gone away. I just want to curl in a ball and cry all afternoon. And to top it off, it keeps snowing here and we'll probably get enough that we have to pay the plow guy AGAIN. We are seriously going to end up in the poor house for how much we have to pay to have this place plowed. We have been in a perpetual snow globe all winter.

I kinda feel like saying F-it and go find a big bottle of my favorite wine & a huge cheesecake and totally over indulge. But working out and losing weight seems to be the only thing I have any control of anymore and I don't want to throw all that out the window. But there is really not much else I have any control over, which is really hard for me.

I'm really sorry you are having such a bad day. Don't eat the cheesecake, but yes on the wine. Especially if it is a really good one. Do you have to pay your mortgage and the rent where you are now? I am sure you will get through it. Maybe the new contracts and stuff will be a good thing. I know nothing about real estate but i am sure it must be frustrating. Hang in there....

I'm with Lucky Charmz. It is amazing how much weight you can lose on an all-vodka diet.

OK - not funny. Switching to supportive friend mode rather than the "this is how Kendra deals with her issues" mode.

Eh-hem. OK - I'm ready.

That sucks big time about the house. As a fellow control freak, I identify with how hard this must be for you. I wonder if considering the market it would be easier to get renters in there for awhile. That's really my only constructive thought though, and I'm sure it is one you have already thought of and handled.

I'll try to give you a call later tonight once I finish up with some work things...
