We're in the market for a new house, it goes with the new province, new city, new job, etc.

My husband and I originally came out here together and looked at houses. We found two that we thought would work. When we came back, after listing our house (about 10 days later), the one house had foreclosed, and the other was still on the market.

We did a lot of research to find out where in the foreclosure process the first one was at, and didn't get very far, until yesterday, where the laywer said we could enter an offer, but it still is pending in court and there is no guarantee our offer would be a) accepted, b) even what the bank had in mind, c) we would have to wait & have no idea when the closing etc would be. Basically continue in limbo, with hope, for another 2-3 weeks.

Fast forward to yesterday, we offered (a low-ball bid) on the other, and were rejected, and the house sold to the other buyer.

Neither house was fantastic, they need a lot of work, but that's what we were looking for. This is a dream that we have as a family, my husband would like his own project. I'm so frustrated because now we are still apart, we still don't have anywhere to live, I've been here a month, and I just want to see him again and be settled.

Enter stress eating which I have barely avoided - I got myself a vitaminwater - a treat - and that's it. I'm still jonesing for an Egg McMuffin. It's likely in my current state that I will give in.

    Aw that is so frustrating! I'm not in the market yet but I love watching hgtv and seeing the process, and I know just from watching hos tricky it can be! I know you'll find something, so don't give up! and in the meantime, try to avoid that egg mcmuffin! Although I know its just sooo hard when you are stressed to remember your commitment to yourself..but its so important. I firget sometimes too, but when I do resist temptation in the face of stress, I feel so much better knowing I did! I hope that happens for you too! Good luck - both with resisting the mcmuffin and househunting! emoticon

    Don't give in to that Egg McMuffin! Surely, there must be a substitute. On the other hand I can sympathize with you and your dilemma having been at that point myself. You will need all of the encouragement you can get.
