I thought buying a house would be fun. I thought going to open houses and touring other people's homes was exciting. But six months later. I'm done. After getting excited and getting disappointed 4 times this year, I just want it all to be over with all ready.
I am thankful we are lucky enough to afford a house. To get to purchase one. But geeze. It is A LOT more work and worry then I thought it was going to be. All 4 times we have put offers on houses I love the house. I get excited. I make plans what I am going to do with each room. I imagine myself waking up in the house. Then we get outbid or our offer just doesn't get a response. Or my dream house is under contract already.
I'm sick of getting the kids in and out of the car 7 times in 2 hours to look at houses. I am sick of garages and backyards and bathrooms and looking at bedroom sizes. I can't wait to have a home. I can't wait to be a real grown up.
