bad news/good news

When we moved to Arizona I told all of you that the house we are currently living in was going to be a temporary home. We moved in July, are having a house built and were supposed to move into the new house in December. Well, that's not going to happen anymore. We're still having the house built but it is going to take about five more months for it to be completed. Suck.
This was bad news to me because I can't wait to move to the new house. I love, love, love our house we're having built. Oh . . . I just can't wait to decorate it, to be able to use that kitchen, to walk in to that view, there's just so much I want to do. As it is having to wait six months seemed like torture to me but now we're going to end up waiting almost a year total. Yeah, that's what I get for complaining so much about six months.
Another thing that I thought was bad was the whole credit change thing. Since we are already approved and in the middle of the whole contract thing, we can't make any major changes to the credit. That means we can't trade in my car or make any major purchases.
Rodrigo, on the other hand, thinks that it is really good news that we have this extra time. He sees it as extra time to save more money for a bigger down payment, for furniture, etc. Hmm, I guess. I'd just really like to be getting ready to move now rather than know that it won't be for a while. I mean, I purposely didn't unpack a lot of things since we were only going to be here for a short while. We don't have a lot of decorations up, no pictures on the walls. It all looks very sterile. I had thought that we would be spending Christmas in the new house. I didn't even send out change of address cards since I thought I'd be having to send some out only a short time later. Oh well. . . All I can do is wait.

feeling: anticipation
listening to: some Chris Cornell song

That's a bummer, but just think how wonderful next Christmas will be in your new home!

That's too bad. I was wondering why I hadn't gotten your change of address since you are so good at it. I still have our change of address here waiting for you...need something before Xmas.
