Fake it until you make it

Well, I found another house that I thought might be interesting, only to think maybe not so much after all. Again. I have been checking this house out online. It's a little above our price range, but it was in the right neighborhood, had a nice yard, 2 car garage, pictures looked real pretty on the inside with a very nice master bath. After some of our recent experiences, I've learned not to judge a book by its cover, but I was hopeful.

Our RE agent went to make an appt last week and found out that they only do showings on the weekends "because they work". Huh. Well, so do most people. Except me of course, I've been working on the weekends. So we made special arrangements to go tomorrow. Ethan even canceled a day volunteering for the ski patrol so we could check out the house at 4 pm.

Except today we get a call from our agent saying that we have to do it at 7, because they won't be home until then. Well, do they want to sell their house or not? They said they only show it on the weekends, but then they leave on the weekend. How inconvenient. Now Ethan and I wonder if we want to even bother -- these people seem like a major pain in the ass. If it does turn out to be our dream house, is it going to be worth dealing with them to buy it?

I think we're still going to try to go, because Ethan canceled ski patrol so it's not like we have anything else to do. Oh yeah, except that I have to be at work by 8 pm. Did I mention this was inconvenient?

Like I said we've found some stuff that's okay, but I don't want okay. Shouldn't I feel more excited about making an offer if it's the right house for us? This isn't like a one year lease where if it sucks, you just move. This is hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.

I am saddened and amazed by my lack of patience with this process.

Hang in there. It's definitely a frustrating process at times.
