Now I don't only want to take the negative aspect of the analogy. Like any break-up, there usually is a silver lining. For us, it's that we've opened up some new possibilities. We're willing to consider houses that need complete kitchen make-overs and even ones that need bathroom make-overs so long as it has more than one bathroom! I've also applied for a live-in position as a residence hall director at a local college. That would kill two birds with one stone - we'd get a place to live and I'd have a job (because, to be perfectly honest, the idea of being a full-time stay-at-home-mom still freaks me out!).

A bad break-up
I'm still pretty sad about us not getting the house. I know it might seem silly to most people, but its not silly to me. My husband made an analogy that's just perfect in my opinion - he compared losing the house to a break-up. I'll go a little more specific than that - it feels to me like losing your first love when you didn't even see it coming. And similarly to a break-up, the best thing to do would probably be to get back out there. But of course, we can't because we live 650 miles away. So for now, I'm stuck "online dating" with the the internet profiles of houses.
