Me: It’s December, I’m getting worried that we’ll never find a house we love. I have so much regret about that house we bid on last month and lost. I really wanted that house.
Him: It wasn’t meant to be! Don’t even think about it. And no one sells in December because of Christmas and winter break. Our house is coming in January. Do not even worry.
Me: It’s January. Nothing in our price range has even come up on the market. I’m a little worried about this.
Him: Don’t be silly! Houses come on the market all the time.We will find the perfect house.
Me: It’s February. House prices are going up. I’m getting a little anxious that we won’t find anything since there’s nothing for sale except that one that’s up for 1.8.
Him: Pshah. Houses always come up in the spring. March is our month. Our house is coming in March, I can feel it.
Me: So, um, it’s March. I’m trying to stay hopeful and optimistic. But, well, do we need to start thinking about where we are going to rent since we, you know, have to move on May 12th and, well, we have nowhere to go? Should we look into rentals? I’m concerned since there don’t even seem to be any rentals in our area?
Him: Nope! I’m not worried! It’s far too early to think about any other options. Rentals come up all the time! Houses come up all the time! That’s how the market works…there are always homes to buy!
Me: So, well, it’s April 12th, which means in exactly one month your wife and your three children and your dog and all of your worldly belongings with be homeless. Is it time to start thinking about, you know, WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO, since there are no houses on the market, and no houses to rent either?
Him: I’m not worried at all! We’ve got plenty of time.
Don’t be surprised if 4 Martells and an Indy puppy show up on your front porch in one month from today. I don’t know where the 5th one will be, but at least we know he won’t be worrying about it.
