Happy Wednesday to you. Thank you for all the well wishes on my new adventure in life with Tony. Buying a house definitely started to sink in… probably for the worst because I am extremely hard on myself. There has been panic and tons of tears because frankly all this stuff scares me. As I said before I’ve been told this is a totally normal feeling, however it’s not so much the payment I’m worried about…
Here’s the thing about me. I like to feel smart. I like to feel like I have my life together and I know what’s going on. I pride myself in education and my work ethic, and consider myself an intelligent person. When it comes to the words mortgage, loan officers, and interest rate…. I say “say what now”.
I’m 30 years old and I’ve come to the realization I know nothing about real life. It scares the heck out of me. I’ve always been considered “the smart one” but I’m absolutely lost when it comes to all these terms. I was always in an apartment, so I guess I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. I mean really how would I learn these things if I’ve never bought a house? However, it makes me feel incredibly small and inadequate. Thank goodness for my Mom and Dad, especially my Dad for being so patient and helping Tony and I through this process. We couldn’t do it without you guys. 🙂
I’m hoping my brain starts to process this all a little bit better and things start to click. It’s an exciting time for us and I don’t want to look back and think “why was I so freaked out?”.
Anyway, because of all the stress I decided to take a rest day after work yesterday. I was tired, my brain was fried, and it started to take a toll on me physically as well. I had to say “Ok Katie slow it down for a day”.
I did however take a stroll over to my old stomping grounds on Monday. My “old” Golds gym where I previously worked out before it got too crowded. It’s a bit smaller, but this one is closer to our new house. It’ll be perfect for when I need to hit a workout after work and I need to get in and out within the hour. By 8pm I’m assuming it won’t be so crowded.
Today is a busy day for us as we have all those scary terms to deal with in a meeting… I’m hoping to kill the gym this afternoon. I’m gonna need some willpower and some de-stressing!
Have a great Wednesday!
