In Which I Break Down the Last Two Weeks of Ignoring My Blog

Monday, July 15: Our offer on a condo an agent “promised” to us is rejected in favor of a last-minute cash offer. I decide I hate all people with cash.

Tuesday, July 16: I find out a friend is in the hospital and very sick. I call the hospital, no she’s not allowed to receive flowers. I have a bad feeling.

Wednesday, July 17: Still feeling depressed about the last two days. Also, I have to show the house I’m living in because it’s on the market. Did I mention we don’t have a new place to live yet?

Thursday, July 18: I play Rihanna’s “Stay” on the piano, she’s singing along on YouTube. It’s really cheesy and it strangely makes me feel better.

Friday, July 19: Husband and I eat chocolate cake and watch Arrested Development. It’s a good night.

Saturday, July 20: We go to an eight and a half hour first-time homebuyer class to qualify for a downpayment assistance grant. It’s as terrible as it sounds.

Sunday, July 21: We clean all morning and then leave because the house we’re in has an open house. The neighbors are having a bbq and the whole house smells like bacon. I’m pretty sure this will be a selling point.

Monday, July 22: Work is very busy and we’re short-staffed. I decide I don’t like work very much.

Tuesday, July 23: My friend in the hospital has cancer. Very very bad cancer. I get a worse feeling.

Wednesday, July 24: I go to the grocery store after work and buy corn dogs because screw this week.

Thursday, July 25: I contemplate what kind of wine goes best with breakfast for dinner. I find a lot of websites discussing the same thing, and I feel a little more hope for the world.

    Not having commented here before, I wanted to let you know that I clicked like, not because I like that things seem to suck for you right now. I don’t like that. I’m sorry about it actually, because I too have experienced looking for a house and being given the shaft by a seller who accepted a cash offer and living in a rental that was for sale. I was told by the homeowner’s agent that I needed come home to remove all the shoes lined up inside the front door because she had a showing that they hadn’t bothered to tell us about ahead of time. I don’t know how she got my work number. I told her to bite me, that’s where our shoes go and I wasn’t coming home in the middle of the day because she wanted to show the house on the spur of the moment.
    Whew, I may not need to make another comment here for a long time. My most sincere wishes that your friend will find comfort and that you have a better week, find a house you love, and have waffles and wine anytime you like!

      Thanks for your comment! I don’t know what’s worse, trying to find a new home or dealing with the home you’re living in being on the market. I got a call a few weeks ago where they wanted to show the house at 9:00 in the evening when I was home alone. Yeah, no thank you.

    Poor you. I can relate, having just been through something similar. At least we’re still creating unicorns.


  7. Ugh! I am so sorry! I hope you find what you’re looking for soon!


  8. I have a fear of actually owning a house due to my fear of having to fix stuff, so I can’t flashback to my own pain on that score, but the rest of it I’m totally feeling you. It sucks. I found that when I had a similar day, I got tired of platitudes. I just wanted someone to agree it epically sucked. I am here for your negativity needs.


  9. Ah, Jeeze…when it rains it pours…
    Sending Good Thoughts in your direction.

    Annyong! Feel better 🙂


  11. speaker7 says:

    Yeesh, that sounds like a crap week except for the part about the house smelling like bacon.


  12. Sorry, Peas 😦 That is a rough two weeks. I hope things turn around soon.


  13. The chocolate cake should do wonders; be grateful that you can enjoy such a treat and still have your health. ‘Been in the cancer scene, and it sucks. Poor friend: hope for a miracle.


  14. Mèo Lười Việt says:

    I don’t hate people with cash. I just hate money worshipers!!! I detest people who use their money to humiliate poor people basely and brutally. I detest people who never help anyone though they are filthy rich!!!


  15. That is a lousy couple of weeks…well, maybe not the cake part. I hope things get better and I vote for the Maple Wine for breakfast for dinner.


  16. loucyo says:

    Wow… Those weeks have sucked. I’ll be hoping for the best for your friend. You still managed to make me smile while reading this so I believe you’re a winner. Best wishes!


  17. Wine and bacon seem to be some highlights there. I think these two things should play a larger part in your life. Perhaps they should make appearances together regularly. Perhaps… you could start a wine and bacon restaurant?!
