Okay, now that I've calmed down a little and had a bit of a cry, I feel like I can face reality a bit more.

We didn't get the apartment through no fault of ours--the tenant retracted his notice, basically, and then lined up a friend to move in when he does vacate six weeks later. The landlord seemed a little peeved about it, and showed Peanut a two bedroom that he dropped the price on for us. Then Peanut went and found a brand new apartment that he's crazy about (with a backyard and everything) that I'm not quite as fond of (due to an attached garage that we don't need and would be rented out to strangers) and we've got a couple more viewings lined up.

I'm so tired of this. I just want to know where we're going to live and not worry about losing out on places that we like. I'm trying not to get too invested in any one place again, at least not until we hand over money and sign some papers. I think tonight is a night for a glass of wine and an early bedtime.


  1. Aw...I'm sorry. I didn't know you COULD retract your notice. I know you're feeling deflated now after all the excitement and hoping. Enjoy your wine and call it a night.

    [I'm getting a bit invested in your search by proxy, imagining that it's me running around trying to find apartments. Can't tell if I want to be doing it, after all!]

  2. Ditto, I'm disappointed for you too! =[

    Its too emotionally draining for me, which is one of the many reasons I want to quit looking for a place to buy. Too much pressure, and there's always a timeline....because if its worth buying, there will be others who agree and will be after it too!

    Good luck!
