I really try not to write whiny posts but damnit buying a house is frustrating! I suppose if it were easy, more people would do it. When I’m completely done with the process, I’m going to have to write Cupcake’s Guide to Buying Your Dream Castle. I feel like I could better guide and inform people of the process than the banks or realtors do. Every time we meet/talk with the bank we’re blindsided with yet a new obstacle to overcome to get the house. Emotionally, every day is a surprise in the sense that I’m either totally relaxed and convinced that it’s going to work out OR freaking the fuck out and convinced that it’s never going to happen. You really test the quality of your deodorant on days like the second option.

Which leads to daydreaming. I sit and daydream or research fun things to do in our new town on my down time. The options are fantastic. The library looks killer from the outside. The amount of hiking trails, parks and dog parks are splendid. I hear new amazing things about the town all the damn time.

Which leads to WHAT IF WE NEVER GET TO LIVE THERE?! Que anxiety on the borderline of panic attack.

I made it to 30 without developing any gray hairs but that may be changing soon.

  1. You’re right it is the most stressful thing. The only thing worse is selling your house and then having to buy too. And with a deadline! Best of luck! It will be worth the when you’re kicking back in your new living room.

    1. I’ve decided that if we get this house, we’re never moving again lol. I don’t even want to think of selling and buying AT THE SAME TIME. *breaks out in a sweat just thinking about it*

      1. It’s pretty intense. Having “showings” and keeping your home perfect after staging, while having a 14 month old was the toughest thing. I’m exhausted just thinking about it lol

  2. That sounds incredibly stressful! I wish you all the best and my fingers are crossed hoping that it all works out for you 🙂

  3. Still sending good luck vibes your way as hard as I possibly can! ❤
    Hopefully the stress will come to an end soon and you can get down to all that fun stuff and enjoy your new home/new town! 😀

  4. I can’t even imagine how stressful it is. I mean, it’s like the biggest investment you’re ever going to had, omg I’m not helping. Sunshine, rainbows, wine, and puppies. Yes. That’s better.

    1. Lmao. I don’t think anyone can make it anymore stressful unless the bank just says no. I’m actually pretty chill about it the last couple days so hopefully that’s a good sign. We meet again with the bank today so fingers crossed!
