Yesterday, Anne and I put in a bit on a house. This morning we learned that our bid was accepted, so assuming the various inspections and contingencies pan out we will be homeowners in about a month.

As the title says, “gack.” The most salient point of the whole experience was how easy it was to spend several hundred thousand dollars. (We’re in the SF Bay Area, so housing prices are outrageously high.) I want to roll up into a ball and rock back and forth, perhaps occasionally saying “wibble.”

Instead, I’m going to get back to work so I can afford to pay for this mortgage I have saddled myself with.

    Personally the part that is stressing me out the most is the prospect of moving, because moving is such a pain in the ass.

    I intend to get a full-service mover, but we have to clean up our place and throw a bunch of shit out to get ready. It just sucks. Everything else pales in comparison. ๐Ÿ™‚
