I have to keep reminding myself this. Ken and I are in the process of selling our house and purchasing a different house. The process has been so smooth, seemless actually. It has been going so smooth that Ken and I were both waiting on the sky to fall. Well it fell. It fell Thursday last week.
We were at the new house with the inspector and we received a call from the buyer's agent on our house that there is an issue with the contract on the buyer's house. Great. We just made a $450 donation to the inspector if we cannot work this out. My figures are crossed, but I am sure that everything is not going to work. We are waiting on the man we are buying our house from to tell us to take a hike. Luckily, this house is vacant and owned by an investor and is not looking at other properties. This could be an even bigger mess if he were not an investor.
I am going to count my blessings because I know things can always be worse. We are both happy, healthy, employed, have two vehicles, and a beautiful roof over our heads. We are lucky people.
It is just so frustrating when you want something to work out so badly and you have no control over it. I am kind of a control freak so this is really hard for me. When we got the news on Thursday, I did not run that evening. I was too upset. I came home and Ken had a bottle of wine waiting for me. What a sweet husband. He also took me to dinner on Friday to cheer me up.
I did run on Saturday and Sunday. These were my first runs outside since December 22nd! Wow, it had been way too long. It was very foggy here, so I stuck to our neighborhood. Kya joined me on my run on Sunday. We ran 10.25. I wish we could have run further, but the fog started to set in and it was getting a little to dangerous. We had a great run together and she ended up having to take a bath afterwards. She was so dirty! She had a lot of fun. She loves running so much. :)
It was a short running week for me, 29 miles. I also rode my spin bike for 35 minutes. I am hoping this week will be better!
