I am both nervous and impatient to get on with the house-buying process. Things both are dreaded and cannot happen fast enough. I’m like that with anything new.

Anyway, since I started proceedings on Thursday, I’ve been restless. What needs to happen is for me to use up all my excess energy on a project, get it over with, and start something else. But no. Buying a house, at this stage, doesn’t consume all that much energy. It’s about waiting…to…find…out. And scrolling through listings to look at houses that may not be there when the financing goes through.

So what I’ve been doing with my excess energy is pace around like a recently-caged tiger, dither on other projects (because they’re not what I’m obsessing about), and annoy people. Sorry, guys.
