Naturally....

So I've been avoiding posting about the goings on in my life because everything was up in the air...but now that I can separate the wheat from the chaff (who am I channeling when I write???) I can update the four people that read my blog as to one more reason why I truly believe someone (not naming names...again) is sitting on his/her big fluffy cloud chuckling.

Like I mentioned a few posts earlier, Chris and I have been asked to move out at the end of our lease (April 6th) for no damn good reason....other than, like I mentioned before, our landlord is evil. We've been house hunting and found a really great house. We instantly liked it when we saw the pictures, went to see it and could completely envision ourselves living there. We put in an offer last Saturday, received an insulting counter offer from the sellers, responded with our own counter and found out last night that sellers have decided that we will never reach an agreement (we are not that far apart in price) and have decided to walk away and not counter. It's a ridiculous move on their part if they ever want to sell their house in what will continue to be a declining market...but nevertheless I am deflated. We had felt so confident that we would end up in this house that we had put the apartment hunt on serious hold (ok, truly we only went and looked at one place). We now have to find an apartment...this weekend....a temporary lease that will take an enormous dog and allow us to put up a Direct TV satellite (we entered into a year long contract and bought new furniture VERY shortly before receiving our "get out" notice). We'll put most of our stuff in storage, save a bunch of money and keep the house hunt going. At least that's the plan...it hasto be the plan...

I'm trying to see this whole thing as the universe telling me that there is another house out there for us...but I can't help feeling a little like this fella....



All of this really couldn't come at a more inconvenient time...work is crazy right now and will only continue to get crazier in April. Sigh....one day people...ONE DAY!!! things will work out and this blog won't be such a major downer.

And so...to lift your spirits I will leave you with something I'm sure about 67% of you will love.

Hey Jess - I also read your blog, so that's five.

Don't worry. One day it will be us sitting on that cloud laughing at those down below, unfortunate enough to continue living.
