In a Funk

October 26th, 2016 at 07:06 am

Things are just getting to me. I feel so unsettled, and while I don't seem particularly stressed, I think it's definitely affecting me. I was so distracted that I missed a regular meeting yesterday morning.

In addition to the move, sorting out finances/health insurances, and DH's new job, we found out about a potential medical problem. We're getting it checked next week, but hopefully, it turns out to be nothing.

I paid my first mortgage payment this morning. Apparently, the company my mortgage was sold to isn't the best when it comes to managing things, so I'd really like to stay on top of it.

We thought we'd found a tenant for our current place last weekend, but when we sent her over to the landlord, he said her paperwork wasn't looking good. He has yet to give me an official answer, but I'm guessing it's no. I renewed the posting again, but nothing yet. It's looking like we may be on the hook for $1000 with the other $1000 being our security deposit. Fortunately, it's already funded and set aside in YNAB.

The other big thing we're currently dealing with is painting. We'd really like to get the place painted before we settle in and start moving bigger furniture over. DH's dad is going to come look at the place with us this weekend and give us an estimate. We have a bunch of paint chip samples and have already picked some color combos that we want.

I just can't wait to be in the place already...with the hot tub set up and glass of wine in hand.

    Hang in there! Moving and everything can be so overwhelming.

    You'll get through it!

    I understand wanting to paint before you get settled, but if you've already stretched your resources to the breaking point, you may want to wait until your finances are on track, even if it's more inconvenient to move furniture around at that point.

    My family stretched ourselves dangerously thin to afford the house we wanted, after a few different developments made it more expensive than we thought it would be. We're slowly saving up for one renovation at a time, including painting. It was better than going into more debt right when we'd just taken on a huge one.

    Perfectly natural to feel unsettled when you have so much going on! Take a deep breath and find a few quiet moments. In no time at all you'll be in that hot tub!

    Moving is stressful! Remember things don't have to be perfect when you move in. If it doesn't get painted right away it isn't the worst thing. If you don't have a renter, you do have the cash to pay for move out. Try to relax...this too shall pass.

    Feel better soon. Buying a home is stressful.
