IT'S BEEN A ROUGH ONE...

Thursday, January 10, 2013


Can I just be real with y'all? I'm having a really tough week. I never realized how hard it would be not having a home base to retreat to at the end of each day.  Instead, we've been hoping around from one Air BNB condo to another, and each time I find my anxiety levels going through the roof. I just want to go home... And, I don't mean LA, or Portland, I just mean like, my own house, with my own stuff, and my own kitchen, and my own bathroom. I just want things to be normal again.

My body hasn't been responding well to all this stress. My face is one big pimple, I'm still wearing the clothes we brought with us to Germany (which are now starting to stink,) I almost started crying when I walked into Forever 21 yesterday (in my defense, that place is cray,) I think I'm getting sick, and I've pretty much been living in bed. Luckily, this latest hotel room has cable so I've been able to re-watch each season of Friends.

Sorry, I normally don't like using my blog for depressing posts like this. But, sometimes it feels good to be honest.

Has anyone else ever felt like this? Just want to make sure I'm not alone... Sigh.

PS - We didn't get the apartment I mentioned on Monday (wah!) but, we applied for another yesterday. Crossing our fingers that all this madness is almost over!

  2. Aw, sorry you are having a tough time. Everyone's been there, you are definitely not alone in feeling cruddy! Hope the apartment hunt ends soon! P.S. I was one of the photographers from Max Wanger's LA workshop--you guys were awesome models! You have a great blog, by the way.

  3. I feel your pain. Moved twice in the past year; one transcontinental, and one across the country with baby in tow. It gets better :-)

  4. I understand completely. I was apartment hunting this past summer. I was mocving across country and was unable to visit any of the homes. I was a complete nervous wreck through all of it.

  5. YES! being 'homeless' stinks. we were when i was pregnant until faith was 2 months old and i definitely had more than my fair share of emotional breakdowns. having your own space and not living out of a suitcase . . . let's just say when we finally moved into our house, i was SO happy. something i learned from that time (and notice i didn't say DURING that time ha ha) is that 'this too shall pass.' sorry you didn't get the apartment :( good luck and thanks for being honest!

  6. Thanks for sharing your thoughts...how sweet it will feel when you finally are able to settle somewhere and explore your new city...hang in there! We did our move to LA just one year ago and I remember the feeling of having no place to call home! Not fun.
