4 blocks from here are about a half dozen houses for sale all under 450k all redone and all gorgeous.
I am going to make due with this house. I am going to smile and be happy. I am going to unpack and repack and when October rolls around I am going to look hard for a new house that requires NO work at all and unpack EVERTHING I own and not be ashamed.
I can do this - this is temporary.
