It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and that’s because…. we are moving! We are selling our house and building our dream house! This is something DadingWITHOUTanxiety and I dream about when we have those “what if we won the lottery talks.” We never thought we would actually be in a financial position to buy a house. I know I always say we are broke AF and don’t worry, that is still very true. In the 9 months it takes to build our house we are bunking with family, and the sale of our house allows us to pay off all our debt and live off one paycheck while we wait. It’s this perfect mix of events that allow us to do this. We are thankful to our parents for allowing this to happen- taking on a family of 4 with a puppy is no small task, especially with our particular breed of beasties 😉
Everyone who’s ever moved knows it is a bitch. Having the honey-do list of things that need fixing up before it is selling quality, having to pack all your shit so you can stage the house, etc etc. We are super fortunate to have the best realtors ever- shoutout because I know mine reads this blog- and we know we are in good hands. This will be our third time moving, and in case you were wondering- it’s still just as fucking exhausting. I’ve made and cancelled plans like a thousand times with our friends because I overestimate the amount of free time we have right now.
Something that has been nagging me is that I feel guilty for building this really nice big house. When we show off the model home to anyone, I feel like I am bragging about it. It isn’t a mansion by any means, but for us it might as well be. How screwed up is it to feel guilty? We work hard, and we worked hard for this house. It isn’t normal to feel guilty about something you earned and worked hard for. Is house guilt a thing? I’m going to have to work on this.
Obviously, my anxiety has been through the roof lately. Because I have an anxiety disorder, I never know how much is normal person anxiety, and how much is me. I know moving is stressful for anyone with a pulse, so I guess I’m going to have to give myself some slack on this also.
This is an exciting journey and milestone for our family, and thank you for allowing me to share it with all of you 🙂
