Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Yesterday, we ACTUALLY listed our house for sale. I can’t remember how many times I thought I was *thiiiiis close* to being “done”, but by this last weekend, we were ‘done enough’ to get photos taken and the listing made. There are still a few nails to counter-sink, and some paint touch-ups to make, but all of the major components are in place.

I thought that would be a relief. But not so much. Because of course, every day in the news the stories about the housing market decline get worse and more depressing. And my mom works for a realtor continuing education company. The news she hears there is depressing too. So, of course, NOW I’m worried about how long it is going to take to actually SELL the house.

Of course, a miracle could happen, and it could sell this weekend. But I’m not going to try to hold my breath as long as David Blaine waiting for that to happen.

Today, Nick had a dental appointment. A big one. So I took a half day off and went to the dentist with him to hold his hand. He HATES having dental work done. I seriously considered taking him to a sedation dentist. But with the help of about 7 vials of numbing agent, a raquet ball, and some Sinatra, he made it through the 2.5 hour appointment.

I also had my running class tonight. We’re on week 4 I think. And since the 3rd night, I have been struggling. That 3rd night I had a GREAT run. Everything felt wonderful, in place, moving as it should. And then BAM! I’ve been in pain ever since. My hip, my knee, my ankles, my calves. They are not cooperating AT.ALL. In fact, I think they are in a conspiracy against me. Well, I’m not giving in. I’ll move slower, at a walk if I have to, but I am not giving up.

Tomorrow, Iron Man comes out. I’m taking the day off and Nick and I are going to the first showing. We’ve been waiting for this since someone used their iPhone to pirate a copy of the trailer shown at the Comicon in San Diego last year. I love Jon Favreau, and of course, Robert Downey, Jr. Hottttiie!!! And then I plan to just chill.

Actually, I’ll probably try to do some of the aforementioned painting touch ups, but then again, maybe not.

  1. Ooh, how was Iron Man? We’re going tonite (along with half the town, I bet)

    I didn’t want to pull the kids out of school to go see it, but I totally should have.

  2. Ugh, the housing market. Nittanybri has a townhome listed for several months now. It’s a nice place, affordable, and nuthin. I don’t get it. I see homes for sale all the time. People are moving somewhere aren’t they???? That means they have to be buying. I think the housing market problem is another media driven frenzy. We all should turn off our t.v.’s and don’t listen to any news.

    Good luck on the runs. I strained my back the other day by basically sitting on the edge of my bed. It aches all the time. I’m weak and pathetic.

    Poor Nick, I don’t like the dentist either and just had to have a cavity filled. Now my tooth hurts and it didn’t before. Dentists are mean.
