marriage has made us insane(r)

we put an offer on a house this morning. AN OFFER ON A HOUSE.

i don't know what the hell we're doing, but we figured why not? what do we have to lose, really? it all feels very surreal. like this is all just happening SO fast. my head is really in a place of "whatever happens is going to happen for the best..." you know?

if they take the offer, then cool- we are homeowners (and that will quickly follow with me freaking out about just exactly how to pay for all the things we need to fix in the house). and if they don't take the offer, then they don't take the offer. and nothing in our lives have changed. it's not like we have to move, you know? we just want too. i really think that things work out how they are supposed too. it probably helps that i'm not attached to the house and not in love with it. i think if i loved everything about it, this would be really hard. i think i would be dying with every minute that passed and i hadn't heard back from our realtors. but i'm not like that at all. i'm just very nonchalant.

and that works for me.

keep you posted!

WHATEVER WILL BE WILL BE
I do think that to buy a house you should realllllly be excited and you aren't--so maybe it isn't the right time?

Good luck with the offer! I wasn't enamoured with our first house. But, it was exciting to take the important step. I like the house we're in now much better. Again, good luck!
