There’s a lot of stuff stressing me out lately. I’ve been grinding my teeth and I am probably kind of difficult to be around — at home and at work.
We are purchasing a house or trying to….there’s been problems on the sellers side. We’ve done everything we can on our end. We had the home inspection a couple of weeks ago and we have all of our paper work in order, but that is still not making it any easier. I never thought buying a house would be this hard.
We are on ten hours of mandatory overtime a day and I don’t want to work it. We haven’t been very busy this year at work and we’ve only on voluntary overtime so I have been taking it easy and not working the overtime. I’m down sixty hours of overtime from last year.
Even though my mom and sister and I had a garage sale in April and I sold a ton of stuff I still have more stuff than I thought I did. I am overwhelmed because I don’t want to deal with my being a hoarder in some areas in my life (like my book collection). How did I collect so much stuff and not know I had it? Probably because I put it in a cabinet in the basement.
I spent the afternoon with my sister and had a great time talking and eating pizza on my back deck. We laughed and goofed around. Relaxed.
After she left I sat in my husband’s recliner in the living room and looked at the mess in front of me. Screw it! I said out loud. This stuff can wait til tomorrow. For the rest of the day I’m not going to stress on my problems — instead I’m going to be grateful.
Grateful for the great apartment I’m currently renting from my cousin and all of things I have in it and around it.
Grateful that I have a job and that I’m given the opportunity to work overtime and make damn good money working it.
Grateful for the sellers for selling the great house so that we can buy it and that I get my own office that I can’t wait to decorate and write and create in.
Grateful for the great family, in laws and friends I have who are always there for me and love me just the way I am.
Grateful for readers who read and follow my blog. Your support, encouragement and kind words mean the world to me.
Grateful for my wonderful, caring and amazing husband who I get to share this amazing journey called life with.
