Enough Already

These last couple weeks have been a whirlwind of stress and fun and more stress. Selling a house is stressful. Looking at apartments is stressful. New relationships are fun…but also stressful when you hit your first bump and have to figure out how to navigate differing opinions. Having your beautiful car damaged through no fault of your own is stressful, the police not getting you the info you need to file a claim, also stressful. Work being full of stressed out people is stressful. Having family obligations happening while you’re trying to do all these things is stressful. Actually packing things up, carrying boxes and furniture out to trucks and then driving said truck all over a busy metro, then unloading it again is very stressful. Getting everything up to a new apartment and finding out they hadn’t cleaned it before giving you the keys and the carpet is covered in pet hair and still smells strongly of dog pee…well that’s just the last straw. I’m trying really hard not to lose it but ffs, these stress levels are through the roof right now. Hope you’re all having a less stressful month.

  1. Just breathe.

    We went through all the stress of buying a home a few months back, and there was some personal stuff that was going down at the same time. It was hard! All I can say is, It Will Pass. You’ll get through all this and a few weeks from now barely remember it all.

  2. Sheesh! I’d also be stressed – and annoyed! Stress builds up and though you might be able to deal with each one, they soon mount up.
    However, it looks like you have reached the Top of this mountain of stress and one by one things should start de-stressing.
    Good luck in your new place πŸ™‚

  3. My goodness, you are having a difficult time! Moving house is absolutely foul – there are so many deadlines and so much mental and physical stress! I am sorry the new apartment was dirty when you got there. Our new house smelt terrible for weeks after we moved in. It wasn’t until we had scraped years of accumulated grease off the hob and out of the oven and then cleaned out the drains did the smell start to fade!
    New relationships are hard to cope with especially when you have other issues to worry about. I hope things improve soon. At work too. xx
