Eye twitches, stresses and home-sale updates

I have been the stressiest stress monster the world ever did see the last couple of weeks. It's been weeks of uncertainty, strain and fading hope. Every day drags, will today be the day someone tells me what the hell is going on with our home sale? I assure you it's taking its toll on my patience and hopeful attitude and every day that passes I get more frustrated, annoyed and stressed. When I stress, or when I get angry my eye twitches. Usually it's under my eye, but the last week has introduced a new twitch... My eyelid. It almost feels like it's sticking, and it happens frequently and boy is it annoying! I'm hoping its a stress twitch and nothing medical anyway....

A couple of days ago we saw the SOLD sign appear outside our house. I felt my stomach turn when I saw it go up. Oh no I thought, now we're fricken jinxed! Even through the last 3 sales we never had a sold sign - good job really, mr sign man would have had his work cut out for him going back and forth changing it every month. The stress piled on more.

This week was meant to be 'the' week. We should have found out something new, a date perhaps, a reason for the delay.. But of course, we didn't. My every-other-day phone call routine has turned into every single day, but still, no hope. I'm feeling tired, frustrated, unmotivated, lazy. I've failed to blog even once this week, and this is why. I spend hours upon hours phoning different people, waiting for calls back, but the reality is, there is simply nothing I can do to 'fix' to alter to course of this problematic time, and my attempts to lay the pressure down on other people fails time and time again. I probably sound like a paranoid pushy idiot, but believe me - time is money, we've lost enough time AND money and there's simply no reason for this all dragging out the way it is!

So my update on this home-sale is non-existent. Our solicitors continue to be useless at everything. Yesterday I phoned for an update and the response was "I'm sorry but we don't have your file in the office today, it's been sent off to another office" ...why? "because the computers weren't working" I'm sorry what? That is simply not good enough! Today I was told our solicitor would phone me back in "a few minutes" which actually turned into over an hour. Not good enough. I know they have other houses to buy and sell and their world doesn't revolve around our house. But they sure aren't giving our case enough attention!

I don't think I can bare another buyer pulling out, but something just isn't right and I'm dreading it coming.
