This house buying business is getting me down! DH is working on the numbers now...he has to have all the data to make a good choice among our top five choices. I like to picture which will best suit or needs and we'll enjoy living in..in other words making into our home. Sigh...I know his way is important but mine has merit too! And I can't get him to say which house he LIKES! It's all numbers to him...that's an engineer for you!
Meanwhile we are in month three of the transfer...Now month one was December but we didn't start looking until the END of the month!!! It's like we had all the time in the world. So that's part of my frustration. Then the bit about the house we offered on a week and a half ago and finally came to terms on to have it all fall apart...so time wasted.
So now DH is working the numbers and hopefully will decided on which house to offer for so the offer can be made Monday so we can start that process again. At this point I'll take any of our top five and be happy with them. The part I'm not happy about is that, despite two trips to look at houses, three of the top five I have not personally stepped foot inside as they came up for sale after my two trips. So I've seen pictures and videos. Another sigh. I could ask to see them but I trust DH, by now we've looked at enough houses together and know what to look for and what we need.
So, this is just to let some of my frustration out here, so I don't take it out on DH! This is a stressful time for both of us and I don't need to lash out at him, although I've come close a few times! Having him living almost 6 hours away during the week and home on weekends (and worn out) is tough. He's tired, I've missed him, I want to go out, he just wants to rest. So you, dear friends, are my outlet so I can be a nicer person to DH. It's not his fault that he was working two jobs for the whole month of January and traveling back and forth. It's not his fault I'm tied down with the pets and can't get up there often.
On a brighter note: DD is due home Monday evening. It's been over a year since she's been in the States. Looking forward to her visit!
