OCD Overload

To say I have OCD is an understatement. I might not have the clinical definition, I don't do the same thing over and over, but I obsess over things until they are taken care of.

As you can imagine having to deal with this while trying to sell your house and build a new one is extremely stressful.

All day long I sit and check my phone and emails to see if someone wants to see the house. I check if new houses are on the market to compete with, and I check what feedback has been left by buyers regarding what they thought of our house. It is not a fun way to live.

I have daily pitty parties over the fact that it hasn't sold and there has been limited interest. I wish I was able to just give it to God like I tell myself over and over but I really struggle some days.

Today my mom came over to see Eliza and help me clean the house. I cried with her over the stress I feel and it helped. I don't like feeling out of control, this is the most control I have ever given up I think.

I will continue to pray and try my best to give it to God.

Mark is going to call our realtor on Wednesday if we don't have more interest before then and see what he says. We are on a tight time frame since we only have so much time with our deposit on the new lot. Hopefully things start moving before then and all this worrying is for nothing!

As I fill my time, I have found a lot of things on Pinterest that I would love in the house, here are a few of my favorites right now.

Love the colors!

Won't have room for lockers, still a great way to store stuff

Would love this under the stairs

Curtains for the bay window in the kitchen
