Hello there, friend,

Yesterday was a whirlwind. The plan was to look at a few houses in the morning, just to put some feelers out there. The first house was way too small and the roof was falling apart. The second house was nice, but the third bedroom was tiny. I'm not even sure a bed would fit in it. Then we pulled up to the third house.

Do you see where this is going? It felt like a mash-up of House Hunters and Goldilocks, only for us it felt like this: This one is too rundown, this one is too tiny, this one is just right (but doesn't have a garage).

I didn't want to feel this way. Not yet, at least. It's too soon. I'm not ready. But when are we ever ready? The only thing I know is to try to temper my emotions, which is hard when imagining how the furniture will fit in the living room and my little ones growing up in that house.

So we put in an offer. We also put our house on the market. And last night, after a couple of glasses of wine, I went to bed feeling okay. Whatever happens, it's going to be okay.
