Moving (knock on wood)

Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving Black Friday Eve? I didn't get to spend the day itself with my own spawn, which is always lame and by far the worst side effect of being divorced, but I did get to take all of my manfriend's spawn to their family Thanksgiving so that was neat and surprisingly not awkward at all, considering it was my first Thanksgiving with the extended family and I wasn't even tipsy. I can't tell if I fit in or they all held their judgment til after I left because they're polite southerners.

Our cohabitation date is getting nearer and nearer and this whole thing has consumed my life so fully that I've forgotten who I've told what or why or when. Suffice it to say, hopefully without angering the real estate gods even further, that just about anything that can go wrong has gone wrong with regard to buying/selling houses, and this shit is gonna give me gray hair. My manfriend doesn't have to worry though, because his hair turned gray a long time ago. Probably from buying his house.

One thing about all the hurdles we've jumped, is that aside from a chicken situation that I'm still sorta confused about, we've stuck together and laughed/cursed all the things, so I feel confident we will make excellent roommates with benefits (please imagine I just waggled my eyebrows), but I also think it's gonna be quite a learning curve because we've both lived alone for a while and gotten used to our habits, like binge eating Halloween candy at midnight (me) and leaving tools out everywhere (him). What makes everything easier is that we're moving during the holidays, so no stress there. High fives all around for excellent timing.

  1. We were buying our first house when I was 5 months pregnant with our first. That was horrible. Also horrible? Is when the seller decides to go to Japan and not tell a fucking soul. I ended up stalking him online, found out where he worked and showed up there to be like, "DUDE- check your god damn email! I'm trying to buy your fucking house, dickhole." But then we bought it and once all of his shit was out, we realized what a gigantic pile of shit the house actually was. We watched the movie The Money Pit on our first night and oh, that should have been a sign.

    1. Well that sounds pretty got-damn terrible! I'm hoping you saw a spider inside so you had a good reason to burn it and get the insurance money.

  2. yay for the non awkward Thanksgiving! We moved over Christmas 2 years ago, basically lived in two houses through out December, with a 3 year old and a 6 year old, it was the most stressful time of my life! Good luck!

    1. I'm hoping that there are at least two other people as crazy as you and me to move over Christmas - one to buy my house and one to buy his. Having three mortgages is a buncha NONSENSE.
