So this is what a roller coaster feels like....

Man, I just can't put in to words the emotional roller coaster I've been on the past few days. First, we closed on our house (this one that we sold) yesterday morning. We were in great moods and feeling on top of the world. 4pm we were feeling lower than slugs as the house we were planning on closing this morning ran in to snags and we weren't going to be able to get a clear title to it, meaning we could not buy it. Now, keeping in mind that we have to pay the guy who bought this house $25/day for rent if we have to stay here after Sunday Dec, 3rd, which works out to $750/month.....on a house we just owned and has been in my dh's family for nearly 80 years.
Yesterday morning my computer broke down......done....dead....kaput!! So, I drowned my sorrows last night by going out to buy a new one. As soon as I got online I looked for a new house to buy. Found a couple to look at.
We get to our Realtors office this morning and he says 'let's just over to the title company and go through the motions. If he doesn't show up by 5pm he'll be at default anyway.' Fine, we went over there. We get there and it ends up not being nearly as bad as we thought and 'things' could be fixed. Bottom line.......we will still be able to buy the house (the glitch was on the sellers end, not ours) after even though the closing date is going to be early next week, instead of today. GREAT!
Now, dh (for lack of a better phrase) and I are fighting over stupid stuff. It's amazing to me how you can go through all of these ups and downs and never fight about anything, support each other wonderfully and then once things are on an even keel, you fight over asinine things. I just don't get it!!
Yeah, I know we'll 'kiss and make up' but it just frustrating to have to go through it at all. I DON'T UNDERSTAND MEN. If anyone out there does, I'd love a tip about to disagree with him without making him feel like 'you're not on my side'. I swear!!!

I'm sure it will all be worth it once you're moved in. And just keep lovin' that man the best you know how...I'm betting he's worth it, too! :o)
