Oh Maw, I certainly understand (and relate) to the AF stuff. no fun. :( My rhythm went off last night too (stress, no doubt, this time), but sorted itself in a short time, for a change. My ablation, almost 3 yrs ago, was not a guaranteed cure, but it has sure helped a lot.
That said, I told the landlord about our search/need for a house/workshop together, and she agreed to work with us as best she can. Of course, she doesn't want the house empty, nor do we -- as we would have to pay until she found a buyer or renter (a renter is much more likely, but who knows?). So she has decided to put it up for sale, expecting little or no interest; her price is VERY high for this area, but she doesn't want to budge. It is a lovely home, but the neighbourhood, while quite safe with nice neighbours, is not exactly full of these types of houses. This lovely and large, 1 story home is surrounded by terraced houses (called Row Houses in parts of the US), so its value is less than she is asking. On the other hand, the house is really lovely and it may appeal to someone. It will be a matter of that buyer being out there and finding this home.
So, we will continue to look. If she has a buyer, she will discuss with us - it takes 10-12 weeks for houses to close over here, so I was told, so we'd still have nearly 3 months to get sorted elsewhere.
If we can't find what we want, we'd have to move to a house on its own again, and pray we wouldn't have to leave again (the previous 2 houses to this were supposed to be renewed for several years, but in each case, it didn't happen; the first time, they moved back into the house, and the 2nd one decided to sell rather than rent out).
My hubby is really worried and upset, to say the least -- he is afraid we'll keep having to move houses every year or so. I can't blame him, as that is unappealing (abhorrent) to me, as well. SIGH
If/when we find a place, and this house has not been sold, the landlord will then offer it for rent (if she doesn't do that before we find a place, but she DID say she isn't in a rush on that at the moment). I'm scared too, but I know we will be okay.. I just pray we won't need to keep moving.
So here we go -- I guess I keep bringing my own stress into my life, but I certainly don't intend to! :( At least I am not eating over all of this!
Gotta finish packing orders and then make my post office run, adn FINALLY get the dogs to the park. Phewww what a day.
