Oh man. Is this going to turn into a home design blog now?
We (hopefully) close on our house next week. I am so excited I can barely stand it.
A week off has done wonders for my anxiety, and even though I’m still tempted to worry about what could go wrong, I’m kind of at a loss for coming up with things that could go wrong as pretty much every single step except for the actual closing is done. My therapist would say, “what could you be thinking about if you weren’t worrying?”and the answer would be decorating.
I think I tend to be quite obsessive and find it difficult to focus on more than two or three hobbies in my life. For the past year it has been movies and makeup. But lately I haven’t been able to watch any movies, and all I’ve been thinking about is the house. I’ve been researching the shit out of fridges, washers, sofas, curtains, and subscribed to every home design blog ever. It’s a lot of fun and only slightly overwhelming.
We are very lucky, very privileged to be in this position. I am willing myself (and allowing myself) to be really happy about it and enjoy it.
I don’t plan on posting a lot about the house, but if I do I’ll use a tag so you can tumblr savior the posts.
