I want to escape. I am overwhelmed. With work, the house sale, the move, etc.
I thought selling the house was going to be the hard part. That turned out to be easy. I was lucky and found the right buyer in this crappy market. But they need to be in the house quickly, which means I have to be out quickly. I can't buy a new house until I have the cash out of this one, so I am stuck doing a double move. I've been searching and am finding it incredibly difficult to find a short-term rental, especially one that will accept my 3 dogs. We have to be out in 2 weeks and I still don't know where I'm going.
Yesterday, I had 2 rentals to look at. I drove 15 miles to the first one only to get a call when I was almost there telling me that it had just been leased. The second one I looked at would have been perfect, but then the owner started backtracking and saying she didn't want to do a short term lease and she wanted a full year or to sell the place to me. So I'm back to square one.
