We did it. Decisions been made. We are signing a contract this week to build a new house.
Oh my… I think my heart palpitates every time I think about it.
I want to be super excited. I really do. But I just can’t. There are so many variables. Will our house sell? If it does, will we get enough for our down payment? Are we getting in over our heads? Spending too much? Will the rates go up by the time we close?
I could go on and on here. This is how I work. I’m an over planner. I like to be in control. I feel out of my element. I can’t control the rates or the market and that’s, well… scary for me.
All of that being said I really am excited. This is the area we want to be. The new house would be close to schools and shopping. We would be walking distance to a new library and a park. There is a farm around the corner yet we are closer to the city for commuting purposes. It’s just… well… perfect. Which is another reason I don’t want to be too excited. I hate getting my hopes up when I know so many things could possibly go wrong.
(Breath Roni, breath.)
Anyway, the stress *may* have lead to me to overeat a bit at lunch. While we were wrapping up with the builder a friend of ours called and asked if we wanted to go out to meet at our favorite restaurant. It seemed a perfect way to celebrate. And celebrate is what I did. The only problem? My celebration left me feeling overstuffed and disgusting.
When will I learn my lesson?
After lunch it was nap time for the toddler. After a little clean up I joined him. I needed it. I was exhausted. My own fault for staying up too late. Again, a lesson I’m having a hard time learning. :)
Post nap I fought with motivation. Following my training schedule, I was due for a 3 mile run. But it was dark, cold and I was groggy from the nap. Somehow (thanks to my friends on twitter and facebook) I mustered up the energy to get out the door. :)
However… my iPod crapped out on me half way. :( Which sucks because I’m running in a challenge for the Nike+ BTLers on BlogToLose and I really needed to track my miles! They are kicking my butt!
Either way, here’s the first half of my run. I don’t think I quite ran 3 miles but I’m proud I got out there.
So this Sunday was Sensational not because I was perfect but because I made a hard decision, recognized my stress eating, compensated for it the rest of the day and went for a run even though I wasn’t feeling up to it. Oh! and I snuck in a nap. Every Sensational Sunday should include a nap. :)
Other then that the toddler and I hit Aldi’s to stock up on healthy food for the week and my house is almost ready to be listed. Almost. :) The toddler and I will be finishing the clean up tomorrow. FUN! lol
