FRUSTRATION


I have to admit, a little bit of frustration has set in. Last night Jeff and I sat down to, yet again, look online to see if we could find a house. I swear we have looked at every single house in and around Moscow that might even remotely work for us for the last 3 years. There wasn't even anything to look at. NOTHING! It's hard to finally be free and clear of restricting entanglements, with a wad of cash in your pocket and have absolutely nothing to get excited about.-----The one place we have gotten excited about recently turned out to be a little too....much! (Sigh!)
I keep telling myself to be patient, something will turn up--and I'm sure that eventually it will. It's just that it took so long to sell the other place and now we have nothing to show for it--nothing to look forward to. Oh well, it could be worse. At least we like the rental we are in. I guess I'm just ready to be settled or maybe I'm just scared that we won't ever find that perfect place for us (in our price range) and we'll have to settle. --------now don't get me wrong, I'm not talking perfect as in gorgeous and showcase worthy either---just perfect for our family, meaning that all of our needs and a few of our wants boxes are checked. We have found a few houses that "would do". but let's face it, I just want this next house to be something special, we'll probably be in it for a long time! I just don't want to settle for something mediocre and then find the perfect house two weeks after we close.
