I spend an impressive amount of time on realtor.ca

We're in the market for a new house, it goes with the new province, new city, new job, etc.
My husband and I originally came out here together and looked at houses. We found two that we thought would work. When we came back, after listing our house (about 10 days later), the one house had foreclosed, and the other was still on the market.
We did a lot of research to find out where in the foreclosure process the first one was at, and didn't get very far, until yesterday, where the laywer said we could enter an offer, but it still is pending in court and there is no guarantee our offer would be a) accepted, b) even what the bank had in mind, c) we would have to wait & have no idea when the closing etc would be. Basically continue in limbo, with hope, for another 2-3 weeks.
Fast forward to yesterday, we offered (a low-ball bid) on the other, and were rejected, and the house sold to the other buyer.
Neither house was fantastic, they need a lot of work, but that's what we were looking for. This is a dream that we have as a family, my husband would like his own project. I'm so frustrated because now we are still apart, we still don't have anywhere to live, I've been here a month, and I just want to see him again and be settled.
Enter stress eating which I have barely avoided - I got myself a vitaminwater - a treat - and that's it. I'm still jonesing for an Egg McMuffin. It's likely in my current state that I will give in.
