The Ups and the Downs
My house is for sale and every time someone comes to see it I get my hopes up. When no one comes by I get discouraged. The house is still being advertised as a furnished vacation rental on the internet so I am getting an occasional call or email to see if it is available. Everytime I get a request for a long stay, like a month or more, I get excited. Since I am living in the house right now I start to think about all of the things I have to do to move my few things out, clean it and stock it for guests. Then it doesn't work out and I get depressed again.
I just got a call for a two month stay starting in two weeks. They will call me back tomorrow after they have decided if they want to stay at my house. Or maybe I won't hear from them again. Who knows. I wish my house would sell so that I wouldn't have to worry about this anymore. Of course I wouldn't have to worry about it if I was content to live in my house, keep my job and continue paying the mortgage. That's just not what I want to do right now.
