Do not congratulate me. I am not excited. I am the opposite of excited. I am despondent and dejected.
I grasp the irony - many, many people would LOVE to sell a home in less than 3 weeks, in this part of the country, in this market. I am not one of those people. Personally, I was hoping our place would stay on the market for at least a year, so I could enjoy our beautiful new cabinets and sparkling new appliances just a little while longer.
But it is not to be. Just in case the first week of school doesn't suck enough, what with my classes and the handing over of large sums of money for my textbooks, and students in a constant state of confusion, I can add moving to the list of things that make it suck. Oh - and notice how I didn't mention where we're going? Yeah, that's right. We don't know. All sold out and no place to go.
Sorry gang - I know nobody likes a pity party, but here we are.
