Sleepless in Adelaide!

I've got a shocking cold, and have been popping pills to dry up my "running tap" of a nose. The brand Mr T bought when he last had a cold, does absolutely nothing for me, so I made a trip to the Chemist to buy me some hard-c0re dr.ugs! I got me some, that work fantatic! I made the mistake of taking on at about 8pm last night, and at 330am... I was still wide awake! Urgh!

I think I nodded off at about 4am. I had so much going on in my head.

One of my (many) unfortunately personality traits, is once I come up with, what seems to me, to be a good idea - I can't rest til I've researched it, in its entirety. Since about Oct last year, I've been thinking about moving closer to school. The drive is about 20 mins on a super duper good day (if I leave early), and 50 mins if I hit traffic... which usually happens. Late last year, the kids were driving me absolutely bonkers, arguing and annoying each other in the back seat. I started to fine them $2 everytime they argued, which helped! But... I still think about moving. We currently live fairly close to the beach, and school is near the hills. I love my house, I love where I live... and I love our school. If only I could move one closer to the other - it would be a perfect world?!!

I did some searching for properties and found 2 that I think are just what we need... Mr T disagrees. He won't move. Another of my unfortunately traits, is that I won't rest til I have my way!!! Well, that's not entirely true, but I believe I'm always open to new ideas... the timing may be a little off... but I'll consider most things! So here I am. My brain wants to move (we've finished our house... maybe I need a new project?!!!) but my heart wants to stay ~ and keep the peace. My brain says, now is a good time, the market is good - we'll get excellent return on our house - and if I play my cards right, we'll go to a "posher" area and create some growth there too. My heart says, enjoy your finished house... relax. My brain says, moving sucks and is too much work. My heart says, it'll do you good, you need a clean out anyway! My brain says, the kids will have I.O.U's up to $200 by the end of first term, in Arguing Fees!!!

I dunno. My brain won't rest. It hurts from too much thinking.

I need sleep.

Damn you hard-c0re super dr.ugs!!!

You sound just like me. I'm usually ready to move on JUST when we get the last thing finished in our house! I get bored, what can I say? However, the housing market here really STINKS, so we plan on staying put for a looooooong time.

Special K said...

Big decisions. I really hate moving. But I'd also hate a 50 minute commute. Toughie.

Feel better!

Briana's Mom said...

Feel better soon! I can sympathize with long commutes. Before Briana came home, I was driving an hour to work and an hour home. Ugh!

Doris & Dan said...

Ohmy gosh.. we are so alike. I'm always wanting to move once I've "finished" a house.. LOL The house we are in now though, I finished it BEFORE we moved in and I've enjoyed the last 4 years not doing anything to it.. (except for Maddy's room)

These decisions have a way of making themselves...Don't stress and what will be will be... I'm betting on the power of postive thinking..so I think you will be moving before you know it!!! Hope you start to feel better soon...Linda

Hope you are feeling better soon! Having moved about seven times in the last ten years, I say 'STAY PUT'!!!! But a 50 minute drive to school does suck... can they catch a bus???
