House hunting hiatus

I'm taking a break from serious house hunting. As long as this

is planted in front of our little yellow house, we really can't buy another one anyway. I would hate to find just the right house and then be disappointed because it got away before we sold ours. I'm also not willing to stick myself with two houses so . . . I'm trying not to get depressed about it yet. I'm stuck between not wanting to sell it and wondering why it hasn't sold. I know I'll shed more than a few tears when it does finally sell.
I am still looking now and then at the for sale postings around here, but I'm not obsessing about it any more. It was getting to be too much - I would spend all day on the computer making lists, then when hubby came home we would get out and drive around until dark. I need the break - and so does he.
We are in the process of trying to extend the lease on this apartment to give us some time. It is all in the paperwork stage at the moment. Once the current lease is up we will have to move some furniture here since almost everything here belongs to the leasing company. That should be fun. Have I mentioned that this place is upstairs? Yep, moving furniture should be lots of fun.
I think I need some chocolate.

After hearing that, I think I need some chocolate too! Just the mere thought of all those decisions! Well, get your stitching out. Back when I could still quilt, it eased the tension tremendously.

Oh, I feel for you, the whole ordeal is so stressful; the searching, the selling, the moving! Stresses me out just to think about it!

Tina - I'll join you on that chocolate! I certainly don't need a reason to indulge. I think you're wise to take a break from looking at houses. GEt your mind on something else for awhile. Moving is sure a pain - I think maybe most of it's mental and not the actual moving. Chin up, girl!
