The Year Of Magical Thinking

This whole house thing is getting more and more bizarre. I will have to watch myself carefully so that I don't slip too far into magical thinking or get too carried away. I need to stay focused.

Case(s) in point:

1. I called my friend, TheMerryNewlywed, to get the name of her real estate agent. She's bought and sold homes and rentals fairly frequently. I'd met the agent a couple of times at functions at TMNW's home. So she gives me her contact and info and says "Hey, Agent is hosting a function for clients tonight after work just across the street from The Closet, come on over and talk with her there". Very Cool. That was mid-morning.

2. I get there are TMNW says to her husband "Tell her". I look perplexed. Backstory TMNWs live 45 minutes away from town. But today at his work, also 45 minutes away from town, a coworker comes up and says "There is this great house that just went up for sale on my street - it might make a great investment/rental property as the price is really right. It's a blah blah blah..." He calls his wife and tells her and she says OMG, that's the house that Roxie is interested in! So I was able to get a lot of the backstory on this house.

I'm scheduled to see the house in an hour and a half. Needless to say, I didn't sleep much last night, but that may have more to do with the potluck dinner last night with really spicy, but good food. One of the group has a Bahrainian houseguest who cooked some really spectacular food that I don't know the name of, but it was all spicy. And I didn't have an antacid nor even any baking soda in the house when I needed it at 3:30 am.

Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Know the signs.



  1. OMG! I am so excited for you. See it's a good invesment and doesn't have to mean that you need to close the door on you and Bick.

    Will be waiting for an updte.

  2. How could it not be a magical sign when there's a Bahrainian houseguest involved!

    I'm so excited to see how this all turns out for you!

  3. Can't wait to hear how it goes.

  4. This is all sounding very exciting. I can't wait to see you come out of The Closet and into your own little home.

  5. Ooh, interesting!!! Waiting with anticipation for the next update!

  6. Oooh, I love it when something seems Meant To Be. Fingers crossed that the house lives up to its potential.


We'll try this for a while.
