I'm in a funk. I really can't figure out why.

I'd like to fastforward through this next year and have it be exactly one year from now - August 20, 2006 - then instead of moving furniture around in my house right now, I'd hopefully be moving furniture OUT of my house to move to Georgia.

I moved a bookshelf today and realized just how beat up my carpet is - ugh. I don't want to change it right now either, especially if I am going to leave. If I pick something that the next person doesn't want, then it's wasted money. I was hoping to put wood floors down this year - but there's no realy point to doing that either.

I sat down and read the entire 6th Harry Potter book today. Not joking. I got up early, walked, did some grading, did the yard, took a shower, then started reading. Started maybe around 11 AM, finished at 5:30 PM. Not too bad. Although I really should have been reading one of my text books for class - oh well - I never get to read for pleasure anymore anyways.

There's a house in my neighborhood for sale - it's the same model as mine. They bought it for 133K. Mine was 131K - theirs is on a slightly bigger lot. The yard is not well kept, and the fence looks like shit. They are asking 299K for it - I almost choked when I saw that. Although, it's really encouraging. If I can even get 250K out of this house next year, I would have no problem finding a place in GA, getting rid of most of my furniture that I have now (which I absolutely hate and want to get rid of anyways) and be able to not only put 20% down on a new house up there (that will undoubtably be larger than what I have now and on a bigger piece of land - and I really want a pool) and get new furniture as well. It's something that I am definitely looking forward to. I think I will shit a brick if that house actually sells for 299K - that's just a ridiculous asking price in my opinion. I'll be interested to see what it actually sells for - I will definitely watch for it. Public records online is a wonderful thing!

So, no reason for the funk. I wish I could figure out why I feel like this. Just can't pinpoint it for some reason. Oh well - maybe I will wake up tomorrow and be able to figure it out. Or maybe it's just b/c I sat around and read all day and now have no motivation to do much of anything else. .....sigh.....

The thing that sucks about house prices going up is, if you own one, you can’t do anything about it. Like, I might have to sell mine. Court will probably order all proceeds to go to joint debt, and if there is anything left, we split it. So, the house I bought for $230k two years ago sells for $400k (in my dreams), then I probably walk away with $50k? And now, I have to shop for a house with $50k down? No way I could afford to move into the neighborhood I just sold my house in!

So, the funk… You might try to break patterns, go for a walk or a run, do something different outdoors. That usually helps me.
