Summer is nearly here ...

Thu May 21, 2015, 10:32 AM

... and we had a lousy start to it.  Weather wise, it's beautiful but in regards to our lives,  it might as well be raining or snowing by all the bad vibes filling the air.  My husband's truly negative attitude has made house hunting a nightmare.

Our initial good luck at finding a buyer for our house was ruined by the misery my husband made of house hunting.  And the final straw was having our buyer get cold feet and pull out.

The only reason this isn't a disaster was the fact the Spring housing market was so hot and fast we couldn't find a home that suited us quick enough before it was sold.  It was just disheartening.  So it was a good thing our home didn't sell as the closing date of our house left us only two weeks to find a new one.  For those who have ever done house hunting before, you know you can't find the perfect place in two weeks.  So now we're back to square one but coming up is another housing wave.  Hopefully will be luckier in the selling and of the hunting.

I'm just hoping when we go hunting again my husband doesn't start his negative moans and groans when I reject places that don't meet EVERYONE'S needs.  That he won't be pressing us to hurry and simply take something that, at best, is fixer which we're not capable nor financially able to deal with.  That would only lead to even more whining on his part about what has to be fixed or what doesn't work for storing all our stuff or not having privacy or anything else he wants to complain about.  It's extremely wearing to deal with an adult baby who complains so much and carries a negative attitude as large as a house.  I'm exhausted from explaining why a home doesn't meet our needs and having pay no attention to what I'm saying.

Retirement hasn't made him easier to deal with due to the excess weight he's carrying that came from failing to stay fit.  The weight caused health issues which forced him to retire earlier than planned so here we are dealing with the aftermath and it ain't pretty.  That towering negative attitude he carries around makes him downright intolerable to live with.  sigh.  But one doesn't throw away 43 yrs of married life. 

Anyway, here's hoping for less drama and finding a forever home.  I only wish I could find a home like this one but it requires more money than we have.  sigh.Claremont House by Built4ever
