It turns out one of my creepy sisters is reading this blog because she signed up for the emails years ago! Just kidding about her being creepy, and I’m glad a whole of three people are reading this blog. 🙂
I checked back on the home listing and it now shows it as “active under contract”! I probably won’t rest easy until the escrow is closed and the keys are in our hands, but in the meantime there is now a fully executed contract. This process has been very exciting, but also stressful. For me headaches are extremely rare (about one or two a year), and today was one of those days because of the stress of trying to tackle work and getting everything in order for this new home. I can get cranky when stressed and when I have headaches–probably because these are two situations that I only rarely encounter. However, I was consciously reminding myself to take a moment to breathe and that there was nothing to worry about. I am happy to say I managed my stress beautifully. I still working late into the night and will continue for a little while longer, but everything has indeed turned out okay and I’ve been more productive just be keeping my stress in check. This blog/journal itself is a welcome respite allowing me to take a brief pause and recharge.
