Movin' On Up?

I preface this post by informing you that I started my monthly visit with Auntie Flo this morning, so it's likely I'm a bit more emotional than usual. That said.....

Pardon my french, but this moving business is quite shitty. I have lived in my townhouse for almost eight years. It is the only place I've lived (since I moved away from home at 18) that I've found peace, quiet and security. Leaving that to go not only to a new house, but a new neighborhood as well, is quite the shock to my system. We haven't moved in yet, but I am already starting to feel the emotions of leaving my home and starting a new one. As we did our final walk through today, I discovered that my next door neighbour is an incredibly large Bull Mastiff. He greeted me by standing against the fence and poking his head over (He's taller than me!!!).He then proceeded to announce his presence by loudly barking. I can only imagine how my two little mutts will react to this. I see a barking war in the near future. Unless my dogs are such chicken shits that they immediately run inside. That's the option I'm hoping for. I'm also hoping that the monster dog does not bark all the time. I have a small anxiety issue when it comes to things like this and I know I need to find a way to try not to worry about things I cannot control. Maybe this beast is a life test for me. On the other side of the worry fence, our closing is possibly (most likely) going to be delayed due to the buyer of my buyer's home. Their docs are not yet at the title company and that transaction must close before the sale of my townhouse can go through. The purchase of our new home cannot close until the sale of my townhouse goes through. And the dominos tumble. I'm trying to keep hope alive and send positive vibes and what not out to the universe (I've watched 'The Secret' several times). It just gets tough to be optimistic sometimes. The thing that keeps me going is knowing that once we've moved in, we get to spend some money on new furniture. Shopping always has a way of lifting one's spirits.
