A new week, a new life?

Monday, February 04, 2013

Alright, I've been whining and depressed all weekend, time to get over it. The short story is, we're doing a short sale on our home (by choice) and want a bigger place. We finally found a place about a mile down the road which means I get to keep my autistic daughter in the same school, ( if you know anything about autism, they don't do transitions at all, so this was very important, moving was going to be tough enough) we put a application in on it and heard back that we got it and would get the keys on the 1st, at that point it was the 30th lol so I killed myself packing, packed up 70% of the house (short of things we'd need for the next several days as we weren't planning to move until this coming up weekend) called all the nessasary places when you go to move, etc then called to see when I could pick up the keys and they told me the guy that's there is staying another month!! Are you freaking kidding me???

So after I called my mom crying and totally stressed out, I ate...a lot. I was so excited. We still are getting it (according to them) but I'm way less trusting now. They are lucky we don't have to be out. If they pull this same crap next month I'm liable to throw a rock though their window. We need this place or I would of jumped ship for sure.

So that's my depressing story. Good news is we get to save a bit more, and we have more time to organize instead of just tossing stuff in a box and calling it good. Lol

Bad news is, this is drawn out even longer. I have to call 101 people and fix our address. Our phone is all screwed up because we changed addresses with them and its going though the process of being transferred, the bus and school needs to be called, it's just a huge mess. Then the company was surprised we went and did so much to move... I mean, what the heck do they do when they are going to move?? Ugh.

Anyway, all the packing got me off the gym, then I wasn't eating the best, then the news hit and I just went off everything, besides food. I like my gym. That's not the problem. One of the problems is its kinda far away.. So if I want to go, it's this big ordeal. Then Levi screaming every time I drop him off, and now they are charging me more than they should be. Ugh. I'm going to lower my membership to the basic plan. I have no reason to be paying to bring people. Everyone I go to the gym with has their own membership lol and I get into the classes either way. Oh and I'm waiting for some of the New Years resolution people to stop going, the place is packed all the time and parking has become somewhat of a issue.

but I'm going today.. I'm going to find out what the deal is. Now, to go wake up my son. My goal this month is to learn how to run on a treadmill.

    What a nightmare...I feel for you! We sold our house and bought a nicer/bigger one about 2 years ago...we had no problem with the new was the buyers of our house! They put us off twice and the deal nearly fell through, as we couldn`t close until we had the down payment which was coming from the sale of our house...the thing is, when they found out we were looking for another place, they jumped in wanting to buy ours. They asked bout once a week if we found something/when we would be out, etc....Then they treated us as if they were in control....we shaved $10,000 dollars off, as we didn`t use an agent and then they still ended up jerking us around.,...(they had the money! this was to be used as a rental. These people own several businesses,etc)....Finally got it closed, but they never paid closing costs as they were supposed to, so we paid it and they still owe us money....we will never do business with them again! Lesson Learned!

    Wow - that does sound like a mess. I call those my "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad, days" and then sometimes my workout is the ONLY good thing to happen. Keep up the exercise and hopefully the rest will calm down. Hang in there!! emoticon emoticon

    I hear you on the stress eating... Ack! Can't fault you, either... I would be a basket case!

    Oh my goodness I think I'd be tearing out every last hair on my head! Stress-eating is always such a difficult trap to avoid. I'm sure you can get right back on track, and it's great to see that you have such a good attitude about getting over it and moving forward.

    Good luck!!
