My husband gets a good chuckle from all of my feelings. I don’t just want a piece of chocolate … I feel like a piece of chocolate. I don’t just want to cuddle … I feel like cuddling. I don’t just need a shower … I feel like a shower. I’ve got a feeling for everything!
My sister sent me an article on Hyper Sensitive Persons (HSP) Disorder a while back with a caption that read something like “This is YOU!”. She wasn’t kidding. I read the article out loud to myself and Kyle, and it was like reading a psychological brief on ME!
So you imagine all the feels I was getting while Kyle and I were house hunting these past 2 and half months. In general, us women tend to feel a strong emotional connection to the idea of ‘home’; and, well given what I do for a living AND the fact that I feel a strong emotional connection to pretty well everything, I was somewhat of an emotional train wreck!
Okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh, but I did cross over into irrational territory! Case in point, Kyle and I were watching the movie musical “La La Land” a few weeks ago; and, when it came to the scene where Emma Stone’s character Mia starts crying because she’s tired of chasing after her dream job, I started crying too. Full out bawling actually. Between sobs, I managed to spit out something to the effect of “I try to create dream homes for all of my clients … and I can’t even afford a house!” It’s humorous now, looking back, but in the moment I was completely serious. I felt like we would never be able to afford a home of any sort, let alone one that felt like home.
But we did find a home - like most other folk do - because eventually the right one comes along! House hunting is much like looking for love - it seems hopeless and a lost cause for a while; but, then you stumble upon something or someone unique and it’s the perfect fit. It’s as if they were waiting there for you all this time.
The picture above is a snapshot of our new little home! You maybe wouldn’t look twice at the outside, but hey, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?! HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!
PS. I’d love to hear all about your house hunting adventures! Tell me I am not the only one to end up in tears! LOL.
