Taking A Mental Health Day...

...because I don't think it's healthy for me to keep getting really flipping peeved at the dorkbutt sellers of Crazy Tenant House (which I am now officially renaming Crazy Owner House because the tenant looked downright sane compared to the crud we have had launched at us by the owners).

I think Inara is totally on to me being stressed, because this morning she said: "Mama, you are not listening to what I need.  But all I really need is water, sunshine and LOVE." - which made me simultaneously burst out into tears and laughter.  So, I think I need to take a day (or two or three) off from house-hunting.  My babies need love (and apparently water and sunshine.  Clearly Inara thinks she is a flower, which is fine by me) and I need to love on them a bit to feel normal again.

We haven't completely ruled out Crazy Owner House, but we're not chomping at the bit anymore.  We don't think anyone else has put in an offer, and so we are going to do some background work of our own over the next few days and see if we can come up with a more reasonable offer.  Which basically means Yousuf will do most of the work while I don't ignore my kids and don't serve frozen pizza for dinner for the fourth day in a row.  Woot!

In the meantime, we'll still be looking for our place to call home. I'm definitely disappointed, but not totally discouraged.  We'll just see what happens.  I think this whole fiasco has opened my eyes to what a crazy rollercoaster of emotions you can go through when you're looking to buy a house.  And for someone who gets as worked up as I do - it's a dangerous game, indeed.

Lucky for me, I have great friends.  Friends who have commented, emailed, called and sent me pictures of latex undergarments (don't ask.  I have the humor of a pre-teen boy, and my friends totally know it) to make me laugh out loud and wonder if rubber chafing is actually worse than what I'm feeling right about now.  I'm guessing yes.  I love you, friends - and I really dig you too, readers-of-my-little-bloggy.  All of you help to keep me sane(ish).

Tonight I am going to catch up on my Hulu (I can't believe that I still haven't watched the last Dollhouse!  NO SPOILERS!  Boo on you, Fox, for canceling another one of Joss' shows...grumblegrumblegrumble) and then maybe I'll make out with my husband for a bit.  Sounds like a recipe for happiness to me!

Keeping it all in perspective. Or at least trying to.
