Making anxiety cool since 1974

I would love to be posting something that even resembles a post about something…but alas, I cannot.

Why can I cannot?  <– like that sentence structure? Total brain fart, but I’m leaving it.

Because (1) it’s almost 3 AM when I’m writing this and (2) we just made an offer on the Barbie dream home! and (D) the realtor gave them until 5 PM on Sunday to either accept or counter and I can only imagine how stressed my week is going to be through this whole process.

Is it wrong to just write them a letter saying:

Dear Mr and Mrs MY HOUSE owners,

I know you just bought yourself a nice, new shiny *ahem* $600,000 home….think you could just crap or get off the pot on this one?

Oh, and did I tell you my kid had cancer?  She doesn’t anymore, but she totally used to.  And we plan to have lots of friends come visit, some who had/have cancer and just consider your acceptance of our offer as a major kindness to mankind. And kids. Or puppies.


Those people who will just squat in the house like vagrants if you don’t sell it to us N.O.W.

Little much?

Just sell me the house!

Me = nervous freaking wreck.

    Don’t forget to throw in a few sentences about the heartbreak and turmoil of having to live apart from your husband all this time.
    Good luck! I really hope you get it.

    Have you tried baked goods? (for the neighbors)

    Take some cookies to the neighbors on each side, show them how awesome your family is, and *make the neighbors do the work* in convincing the owners of your new house! I bet it would work!

    (come on, admit it: I’m a genius.)

    I think it needs more threat of bodily harm 🙂

    Hope the silly fools come around. Looking forward to hearing the good news tomorrow!

    Fingers crossed for them to sell you the house – ALREADY. It looks like a house a family has been happy in & they should want to pass that space on to you ! Besides, they should know we will be stopping in fora party soon…do they want all these strangers coming over?
