Stressy Struggles

I'm struggling with WOW right now...the real estate stuff got hectic today and I felt really like I was the only one on the team bearing the brunt of the stress: gotta get a structural engineer out to the new house NOW or...or what? Or the seller's contractor is gone on vacation next week so it won't be as convenient for him to fix the bad foundation problem that HE CAUSED? Or our deal will go up in smoke? Or it's just that our realtor is a total pussy that is being pushed around by the seller? Who knows? All I know is that MY realtor who is supposed to be on MY side was totally pressuring me today to find a SE...how am I supposed to do this? I am not a "real estate professional" like he is. Grrrrrrr. I totally freaked. BUT, being Super Helly, I did find someone who can be at the property tomorrow ('cause you know it's gotta happen like NOW...who says? who knows?). But I definitely get some points for burning calories today for stress.

To add to all this fun, I've got my oh-so-elusive period that comes when it damn well pleases despite promises from hormone treatment that it will be oh-so-regular. Not. I'm sure this is why I lost it tonight with DB...totally taking out on him my frustration with idiocy of our realtor. :-(

So because of all this, I have been drinking some on the weekdays. And, yes, it's probably an excuse. And, no, I don't care right now. The best I can say is that I have been super duper careful with food. When I've had a drink or two and head to the fridge, I actually THINK before stuffing food (always good stuff, but still) into my mouth. This has led to no stuffage. So tonight, for example, I had a bunch of green beans with spicy sauce, a salmon patty (80 cal, 1 gm fat), a sunchoke (raw) and a popsicle (50 cal). And a vodka martini and one small glass of Campari. With going to the gym tonight and eating totally perfect all day, this doesn't seem to me to be a bad day. Of course, the scale will tell on Friday. But I do wish I was clean with WOW...I'll keep shooting for that...

Real estate agents are weird. Bottom line I guess is they are always working for themselves, and they have to make deals to get paid. It will be over someday not too far off in the future, though. It is so much stuff to do in such a relatively short period of time. You'll get through it, even with the whimpy agent. I just don't know about those real estate people, they told me I'd never get anyone to move into my house, lease or buy for what I wanted, and the first person that looked, leased it for what I wanted, so, what do they know, anyway?

And I forgot to add, that period thing, it's like it knows the worst time to show up, Mine showed up on moving day, after three months of being a no show. Really, could it not have waited just a couple of more days?????? hang in there!

You'd think that the agent would want the sale to go through....I'm just sorry that you have an annoying and useless agent. It will get better and TOM is always at a bad time (is there ever a good time for it? Maybe if you're on a bad date I suppose.)

Hang in there. It will get resolved and you'll laugh about this one day.

Hi Lori...the problem is that the agent wants it to go through so much that he is taking the SELLER's side and not mine (sometimes). And, unfortunately, he's a good friend too so it's hard to crack down on him. I think I need to get my realtor's license and just do it myself...seriously. ;-)
