We are so playing roulette now

7 Apr

After weeks of sleepless nights (on my part), various burst of non-rational behavior (on my part), numerous house appointments with crappy landlords and real estate agents and basic hand holding (on Tom’s part) we have decided to stay put in our present digs.

Meaning – we are putting “looking for new digs in order to move next month” on hold.

Tom had a discussion with our landlord, showing him the benefits of keeping a tenant in his property during the time his FOR SALE sign is up front. The landlord, in turn was quick to jump up and agree all around when Tom and I created a united front and offered to stay put, in exchange of a cut in our rent, free staging (we have awesome decorating skill, with the help of awesome friends) and the cool factor of having a hip, young couple (with 4 animals) take care of your property.

Some may think this is playing a bit of roulette and the landlord may turn around and stick it to us. We would like to think it’s a way for us not to kill each other and get out of packing up boxes a bit longer.

Plus, Tom gets to have a break from my rather irrational behavior of wanting things to happen right now.

So, for the time being, we will continue to look at what is out there for the future “PC” dream home. But, at least, we don’t have the stress hanging over our head that we need to MOVE OUT NOW.

Dude, it’s totally a win-win situation for all parties involved in this saga.

Last night was the first night I sleep – in 2 months!

And it had nothing to do with the fact that we celebrated well into the night, by sharing sloppy kisses.
