house hunting

In the last few days, the husband and I have been to a lot of houses that it made my head ache. There was so many to look, a lot to cross out, several to look again. I did not know it will be this hard to look for a house to live. I don't remember being this stressed two years ago when we bought the property that we sold. There are so much to consider, so much to think about that I just want to crawl in a corner and bawl over. It was not all bad though. There were houses that are really worth looking even if we know we could not possibly afford to buy any of it. Some are elaborate in designs, the others have yards that any normal person will envy. There were huge houses, little houses, even trashed ones. There was even a house with a contraption in it that I pointed out to the realtor who told me that was a stair lift. I am sorry, I did not know what stair lifts were and what they were for. It was a good thing that it was just one other person who heard me (the husband does not count anymore because he is privy to my being "ignorant" sometimes). We have looked at houses that were just mere blocks from the ocean to houses that are considered in the country considering their distance from the beach. I think we have decided on one particular house though which is a good thing because if I look at another house anymore I might just go crazy. Now we are just waiting for the financing to get approved then hopefully we will close earlier than expected. Nobody told me it will close fast, I just hope it will because I am so ready to sleep in my own bed.
