House Hunting SOLC17 #3

I am joining the Two Writing Teachers this month for the Slice of Life Challenge.  Along with other bloggers, I am committing to writing each day of March.

Lucky for us, we sold our house in one day.  Even luckier, we found a short term lease apartment that is roomy and clean where we are now staying for the next 3 months.

We have a few months to find a house, but I'm someone who likes to be settled.  It seems that I am getting lots of opportunities to learn how to live an unsettled life.  Houses are snapped up in a day, which makes me nervous about being able to ever get a house.  My husband and I scour the realtor apps and send texts to our realtor asking to see one thing or another.  I'm pretty sure I am driving him just a bit crazy.

Tonight was another night of looking at houses.  We had two on our list. To call the first one a fixer-upper is an understatement.  Chip and Joanna Gaines would have a heyday there.  We checked that one off our list right away.  The second house was lovely, but no backyard.  I need a backyard.  As we chatted with our realtor and his wife, good friends of ours, Keith suggested we go out to eat to continue the conversation.

We took them to one of our favorite Indian restaurants.  It was a first for them.  The waiter suggested a combination of dishes to try which were delicious!  The evening was spent laughing, sharing stories, eating delicious food, and putting the stress of house hunting on the back burner.  It was just what we needed.  

We didn't find our new home tonight, but we were able to spend a wonderful evening with friends.  I am trusting that our house is out there somewhere.  When we find it, we will know.  I am learning to be ok with a little unsettledness.

  2. We searched. We looked. I told my husband to give up. There was nothing out there. The very next day ... our new home came to us. It's hard to be patient and picky, but you know what you need and want. Best of luck ... I bet before this month is over, we'll hear about a new house!

  3. You look for the good. So much to be grateful for.

    Powerful sentence..."I am learning to be ok with a little unsettledness."

  5. I relate to existing in the unsettledness. Our situations are different & yet I feel like we are learning similar life lessons. Thanks for walking the path with me.
