A Funk-a-licious Rainy Day Running Mix

14 Comments 1690 views

rainy day running mix DUDE! I’m trying. I’m REALLY trying but I can’t break this funk I’m in. I feel like I have a black cloud hanging over my head and for once it has NOTHING to do with my weight. It’s worry about selling this house. I don’t know what else to do and I hate the feeling of being completely up to the mercy of others.

ok, OK so I’m a control freak. I know this. I just don’t know how to not let it get to me anymore. *sigh* Like I said, I’m trying. :)

In the meantime I wanted to pass on my rainy day running mix. I put it together for my 7 mile run in the rain last Monday and I’ve been listening to it every since. It’s a little more laid back then my normal running music.

Here’s the link mix on iTunes but some of the songs are missing so I’ve linked each individual song below. Total running time is 1 hour and 12 minutes.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Just think about how long it takes to build…you have all that time to sell. Did you write a contingency in to your builder’s contract (ie, if you don’t sell your house, you don’t have to buy the new one?) I have faith that your house will sell…from the videos and such, your house looks amazing. Just like you are inpatient, your house is anxiously awaiting its new parents…I’ll cross my fingers for you!

    You mentioned once before that you were considering using a St. Joseph statue. Try it, it will give you the feeling that you have done something to help move the house, and my friend laughed at me when she was having trouble selling and I told her about using a statue, but sure enough she did and found a buyer shortly after. It can’t hurt :)

    Selling a house can be very stressful, but at least your not taking it out on yourself in the form of over eating. This is something that I’m working towards. I also want to comment on the awesome song Mr Mastodon Farm. I love love love that band. Have you seen them in concert? If not you need to go they are great.

    Selling a house is so stressful. It took us about 6 months to sell ours, and that was when the market was okay. It was really exhausting. I was so tired of cleaning and staging the house, packing up our dog and hanging out in my car until the people looking at it left, AND I was really annoyed with people looking at the house 2 or 3 times for extended periods and then not buying it–that was a major bummer. We had to stop our realtor from giving us “feedback” after viewings and open houses–it was just not useful. We also had some “flipper” lowball us and that was insulting. Eventually the right buyer came along, and all the stress was forgotten, but during the process, I was in a funk most days! The whole roller coaster thing was hard for me–getting excited about a viewing and then nothing coming of it, etc. Hang in there…

    p.s. we buried a st joseph statue by the real estate sign. That day we had an offer, but it was the “flipper” who lowballed us. it was fun to do though. I guess it is still there… we never dug it up!

    Elaine – You are right, we still have some time. No contingency.. we will lose out 5% down if we can’t buy. It’s not the end of the world I just want it to happen SO badly!

    At least you recognize it as just that- something you CANNOT control, no matter how frustrating it is! We’re in the same boat, and I’m also a control freak, and it’s driving me nutso. But I have to just trust that it will happen when it’s supposed to, because there really isn’t anything we can do. Keep that chin up and think about something positive today- like the new job! When does that start?

    Okay…huge HGTV fan….have you considered having your house staged? Sometimes it helps to get a third person’s perspective on things you can do to seal the deal. At least you have lookers!!!!!!!

    Hi Roni,

    My husband and I are in the same boat housewise. We own a house and a condo…the house has been up for sale since Christmas and the condo, just a few weeks. It’s so hard not to get into a funk when I have so little control over the situation!!! I had a big chat with God about this and finally came to the realization that if He wants us to have children (which is why we need to sell everything…to get a house that’s kid-able), then He’s responsible for the sales. I feel much better since then and realize that my biological clock is in His hands (I’m 28 and so ready to get going with kids). Anyway, I’ll be praying that your place will sell!!! God made our ears, so He hears…even though sometimes I wish He was on MY schedule! :0)

    Hi, Roni,
    I feel your pain about home-selling. Our house has been on market for over a year. I actually got used to the non-activity (lack of interest, lack of over-cleaning for showings). However, we just signed with a new, seemingly aggressive realtor. We’ve had two showings to prep for and Sunday is our first Open House. It stresses me out so much because I do want to sell, but the thought of packing, moving, looking for new home is so overwhelming; not to mention all that can go wrong if/when we actually do get a buyer. The whole situation has really thrown my weigh-loss efforts through a loop! I have been eating non-stop and nothing good! I am a teacher as well, and end-of-year burnout is getting to me, too. I just stopped myself (after already having 1 bag and an individual starburst) from inhaling a second snack sized bag of skittles (and the other indiv. starburst). I came to your page to look for inspiration, and found it again. Going to put the treats back in the box for the kiddos and go gripe to a co-worker. I am sorry that you’re dealing with the same issue, but glad at the same time because it’s the same topic that is ruining my life right now, too… it’s nice to not feel so alone in it.
    Thanks for all!
