Round and Round

So, it's official, Poo is giving notice tomorrow. I lit a fire under my Real Estate agent's butt because I don't want to have to move twice and I don't want to have to pay rent for more than a month or two. Moving means that I would either have to move twice, or that I would have to sign at least a 6 month lease somewhere. I don't want to be paying rent when I should be paying mortgage. If I am going to be broke, I want it to be mine. If it will only be a couple of months, I will stay here and pay the rent which is a little over half my salary. And I don't want to ooze into the rest of the apartment so I will only be occupying

I am tired of being in limbo. I have lived in limbo for so long that I have forgotten what it is like to really call somewhere home. Not that I didn't like my lakeside apartment, but what I REALLY wanted was to be in a house. And I was never sure how long I was going to continue to be able to afford to live there.

Meanwhile, there has been some derby drama. I am not going to get into it here because I don't do that. But I will say that I just don't understand why people feel the need to create trouble and to sabotage what has been built by others. In one case, I only know one side of the story. And I still don't understand why the other side is acting the way they do. The other thing makes me sad. Sad because I had a hand in it. In that case, I did my best to do the right thing. In that case I know both sides and I still feel caught in the middle.

I can say with the utmost confidence that I need to remember not to let Derby take over my life. I can see where it is heading in that direction as I sign up for more committees and more practices are added to my schedule. I want to be a good skater. I want to build up this league into all that we all imagine it can be. But I need to remember to be Ginamonster too.

The madness continues! But I am really looking forward to looking at some houses. I have several picked out, and only one looks like a shithole. But I thought I would look closely at it before I declared it such.

I really like looking at houses, too. I hope you get to enjoy the process a bit more.

rich-if you mean because it's awfully funny what people do to their homes, then yes indeed, I am enjoying it a lot!
