Their My Thoughts, I Made Them
I had called in sick as I mentioned last entry. I had made a nice dinner, was just going to sit down when the boom-boom started from what I thought was next door. This has been going on for a couple of weeks. I thought I had to just tolerate it as it's just a dumpy Apt. I was so stressed as before at the townhome. Even though it was 11am. I called the manager. As it turned out it was from the floor below and one Apt. down. It was calmer yesterday. At least I said something and we'll see how it goes. There has not been much coming on the market. I'll see a place on Sunday, yet I know I won't buy it as it won't have the lay out for the desk and TV. Plus it's on a busy street that I have experienced from the building next door that I looked at. But it's a top floor corner, Southwest facing. 2/2 with storage. By the pictures, it only has 1 connecting wall with another unit on that floor. The other is the stair well which is also a concern as it's a bedroom like the other wall. Which I think is a connection to the next unit's dining room. I just need to see it. Anyway...I met with the Loan guy yesterday and it will be something to walk through to buy this next place. After talking to him, I'm just going to take the whole $100,000 loan amount. I will be comfortable now and I do want a new car. I'm just Simonhenry and I don't care anymore what would be the best by what I think that others think. I'll see....I'm just glad I get to do this right this time for me.....
I called in sick today. I know that is not a good idea. I have been so stressed this past week and have not slept well. I am getting sick and I'm tired. It's OK however. I will just be home today and nap and such. I said to much to my Realtor. I just want a 1 bedroom, 1 bath top floor corner unit with some sun. I blurted that out. I'll still look at the 2/2's and move on. I just need to wait till the one comes on the market as we've exhausted the current market even though they sell real fast after I see them. I have 4 1/2 months left and I'm not going to panic about this. I will know that it will happen. I will do it correct, it won't be perfect, I will be comfortable now. I thought the big girl kitty was sick, she isn't and I think that i have nothing to worry about today. I have a busy next two days ahead, but I'll rest today. I'm not sure what else to say...I just don't feel good today...
So, I wake up and realize that the house with no back yard just might use the front as a play place, swing set and all. The other houses, well what about that basketball hoop? I had a long talk with my Realtor and I resended my offer. I also realized that I Scared of buy and that I'll make a mistake and end up in the same situation as the Townhome. I have the awareness now of the Fear and I'll know when the right one comes. Have a nice Sunday....
The offer went through on the condo. I drove by and checked the -back side cul-da-sac. to see what was happening. It's quiet there. The house right in front has no back yard and the front faces me. That place you have to access from the same drive as mine. If they are going to party, it will be in front of me and there front yard. the others are not bad. It dawned on me that one day, a basketball hoop could go up. My whole unit faces that culdasac. What ever those houses ever to decide to do oh well they are not part of the condo. Then there is the laundry...behind the bathroom door. You'd have to go in close the door. and, where do you put the soap and such. Also, it's just to big even though that is minor. I will go through the inspection as I'm courious and it would be good to meet him. I'll have to pay that and I'll be out that amount. I just won't be able to change the placement in the neighborhood. I can always fix the inside. We go back today just to be there and I'll see how I feel then. We are going to see another on the way. Things are coming on the market and I just don't know what to do. However, I haven't slept in 3 nights one being the Wed. cocktail night. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for your help.
I'd plan to see a condo yesterday. She also had a new listing that just came on the market if I wanted to go see it. The original unit was weird and the living area was small. It was dark. It was all in good condition. The windows were in need. They had marketed it to bring offers at a later date. I thought that it was not worth the money they were asking. And to create a lot of offers and maybe drive the price up was not worth it. So, we went to see the next one. The Area is one that I wouldn't mind living in. It's close to a wonderful park and I know the area as I work there some days. It's only bad part of that is that it's a the bottom of the hill. It would be something I'm not sure of during winter. Overall though the next car will have studded snows. And, when I Retire, it won't matter anyway. It just seems that with all the units I've seen and the areas I've looked at. This one is good. Really good. The building only has 8 units. Which I think I would like. We spoke with one if the residents who bought when it was new. It's 21 yrs. old. See liked it there and she says it's quiet. It's mostly single people 2 of which are very senior. Two are rented. It was a purpose built condo and I think that might make it different in more care would have been taken in regards to sound abatement. The living room backs a living room. I'm not sure what backs one of the bedrooms. It's a top floor, there only two. A corner unit with a South/West exposure, a bonus. Two Decks one off the living room and one on the south side in the bedroom. It does not have a fireplace, a good thing. It's large(er). 900 sq. Feet. A bit large for me. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It also has 2 deeded covered parking places. It is not secured nor is it a lobby type place. It's in need of a really good cleaning. I think it would need better newer Appliances. It would need new toilets and well I don't know about the tubs. It has really nice water pressure and the HOA pays the water/sewer. I would have to paint and carpet at the very least. I just got a nice sense of it as I entered it. I don't know...I'm not sure. I made a full price offer. I can walk away. I'm indifferent I think. I see a lot of money that has to go out. I see bigger electric bills for heat as it has a large living area (big) with only one small forced air heater. It has most all the things I want. It will be quiet there and I think it will work. It's the part about you don't get everything and what is the most important things. The location is the best in access and convenience to shopping and work and my Nephews house. It's a bit far from the freeway however. It is easier then the area's I've considered are not as easy as this one. The exposure is great and it's a corner unit. The main bedroom is the corner and I most likely would use the other on as it's on the south not west as I go to sleep when it's light out. I can get black out curtains. I think I just have the hesitations because of the work I would want to do. I will be comfortable now and I will do what it takes. The money will work as I would have some to do things with. The mortgage will be small and it seems to fit. I guess my thought is that I'm rushing into it, what if, have I really seen enough to make a choice like this. I just wonder when I look at what i really want, 1 bedroom, 1 bath, top floor corner unit, I think this is too big. Yet it will work for my desk and furniture and records. It has a large storage closet next to the unit that will hold my camping stuff, snows, bike. It just fits. The pro's out way the con's in this picture and no, it's not perfect but would be nice really. The woman who owns it has till tomorrow to respond to my offer. I'm not sure i should be excited and it would be best if I stay indifferent. If it doesn't work out, I'll just keep looking and it would of helped a lot to even more pin point what I want or don't want. I don't know what else to say. I'm going to drive over there and look at the side street that ends on the rear side of the building that my unit is
overlooking. It seems like it would be quiet, maybe kids play on the street? I'll look. i'm not sure why I'm reacting like this. I think I 'should' be excited. Maybe if it goes through and I decide to buy it that i'll be more into it. I'll keep you posted.

Their My Thoughts, I Made Them
Yes, there just thoughts! Some are irrational(most really). Yes, the thought provokes a feeling. Yes, the feeling provokes a reaction. Change the thought, changes the feeling, changes the reaction! How Simple! Be the "Watcher" of your thoughts. Let them move through your mind. Some say like "puffy white clouds in the Blue sky." Well, what if Self-help books and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy don't cut the mustard? What's left? Hope, Faith..........? It all has to come up and out some how, some way. Even when moving forward goes down and across it's still movement. I have to find my voice somehow.
