Oh, the changes that have happened in the last week. It’s been a while since I posted and I promise there will be food pics and recipes in the future, but first, a few updates. Stress level- extreme.
Last Thursday we got a call from our landlord letting us know she would be selling our condo when our lease is up in July. ?!?!??!?!?! Um what?!?! Nolan and I just moved in last summer and to be honest we still haven’t unpacked all our shit. We were hoping to live here another year or two and we never would have moved in if we knew it would only be for a year. I DESPISE MOVING. It’s the worst.
When I got off the phone I immediately burst into tears. I love the community we live in and I was so excited for a great summer by my pool. So yes, I fell apart for a few days. Nolan however was proactive, and within 2 days we were meeting with realtors, had a mortgage company, and we are house hunting which is terrifying.
Our plan was to stay where we are for 1 more year and THEN start this process but with the price of 1 bedroom apartments in our area, it’s cheaper to buy something. We have gone to a few open houses, seen some good and some terrifying, and I am starting to think we may actually find something we love. If not we will rent somewhere for another year and try this again next year. (Damn you student loans!)
In other news, I am on April vacation!!!
As planned, we spent yesterday doing laundry, running last minute errands, and packing for our trip to Denver. At about 12:30 we got a call from JetBlue letting us know that our flight which was scheduled to leave in 5 hrs had been cancelled because apparently Denver is getting slammed with snow. AHHHH.
I’m telling you, when I got that message I was like WTF!? Why do we keep getting screwed?! (still pretty mad at our landlord for making us move) After much deliberation and rearranging, we changed our plans and now we will be going Wednesday morning until Sunday. At first I was beyond pissed off but this new plan is going to be much better than our original plan-weather wise. It was supposed to be 30s and snowy for most of our trip and now it will be 75 and sunny!
Plus, I hadn’t really stopped and realized how exhausted I was from the last few weeks at work. (the kids are always crazy the week before vacation). After we found out we were not boarding a plane in 5 hrs, I sat down on the couch and ended up falling asleep for a while. A long while. My body is happy to have some relax time before our Colorado adventure. I have a feeling that if we had made the trip yesterday, I would have spent most of the vacation asleep.
So yea, in the past 2 weeks all of our plans have been changed and I am not handling it like a champ. I realize that both of these events are 10000% out of my control so I need to move on, but I am stubborn and I do NOT handle change well. But I know that everything will work out for the best and we will end up where we are supposed to end up. I just wish I had a time machine so I could fast forward through the stress of the next 3 months!
Ok, rant over. I’m going to go cook to de-stress and maybe have a cocktail. Hey, I’m on vacation! 😉
