Week in Review – One track mind

I pulled into my driveway after work tonight
and caught two deer in my headlights,
hightailing it across the side yard.
If I ever find a house in town,
I’m really going to miss that kind of thing.

I spent a few hours at my sister’s house
this afternoon, which I really enjoy.
But it’s a long haul.
I hope I can find a place
closer to my family soon.

I looked at a few houses this morning,
and I found one I really like.
So I put an offer on it.
Oh. My. Goodness.

I had the hardest time falling asleep
last night, because I was worried
about this house business.
What if I don’t get it?

Tired as I was, I couldn’t sleep again.
What if I do get it?
I got up and mapped out my
budget through January 2013.
It will be tight the first year, but doable.

Tight but doable??
What am I, crazy?!

Last night, for the first time in 3 nights,
I fell asleep at a decent hour…
only to wake up from a nightmare
two hours later.
I don’t remember much, except
I was in a house…

  1. I remember the days–and nights–of house-hunting-offer-making-waiting. A stressful time–makes you feel like a grown up?!

    • Haha – that might be going too far, Patricia. I’m beginning to believe I’m never going to really feel grown up. But I guess I’m mostly ok with that ;).

    you will find the perfect place. Wish you were closer, even though I know you will miss the nature, and quiet of the country

    • Yeah, I’d really like to get closer too. If I just let this go for a while, I’ll get my equilibrium back and I won’t want to leave here. As it is, I’m itching to get closer to you guys.
