Ilana Kohn Pogi Pants | Large
Smartwool layering tee | medium, a few years old – this is INDISPENSABLE
Dansko LT Pro Clogs | IMO these fit my feet better than the professional OR the XP 2.0, they seem to be a teeny bit wider. So glad to be back in white dansko clogs 🙂
What a mess…And not just the house LOL.
I am in a funk. Given everything we (collective we) and I, personally, am dealing with, it seems about right. I’m okay, just not motivated, or excited about anything. And when I get this way, I retreat inside myself; I just don’t want to talk. Tell me I’m not the only one, haha. (Yes, yes, I did write last time that I wanted life to be “boring” for a while, but not in this way, not in a waiting in limbo way…)
We are under contract on a house in the ATL area and if all goes well will close on 3/22, but all could still definitely NOT go well, so we are waiting. (I don’t know if any of you are house hunting now, but this market is INSANE. We had a contract on another house that fell through because it appraised for a full $30,000 less than asking and the seller wouldn’t drop the price, and we don’t have enough cash to make up the difference in what we could get a loan for and the price we offered. We had to offer a full $20,000 ABOVE ASKING to get under contract with the house now and are hoping for an appraisal amount where we have the cash to make up the difference plus some left over to do a few things to the house. UGH. It’s so stressful and we are doing all of this remotely WE HAVEN’T EVEN SEE THE HOUSE IN PERSON YET!!! We put offers for less than $5,000 above asking for a few other houses and no one even deigned to get back to us about them. It’s a seller’s market out there and I’m afraid some are taking advantage.)
And we are coming up on one year under quarantine. Honestly, it feels normal now, but that really scares me. I had a very mild but noticeable panic attack when I went to Trader Joe’s for the first time (I’ve only gone three times…) – how am I going to react taking Hawk places? Trying to ease back into a new normal around people?? I will feel more secure once more of the population is vaccinated, but not by much honestly. I don’t know, maybe it won’t be so hard.
We humans are almost too adaptable, no?
How are you? Are you leaving the house much? How do you think you’ll react once it’s safe to be out in public a bit more?
