I feel it is only fitting that I start posting again with Stream of Consciousness Saturday, even if I do feel rusty and my brain doesn’t seem to want to flow words in an SoCS way. I’m going to struggle through it though, since I’ve decided to come back, if not full time, than at least for more than just once a week.
When I first read the prompt, I thought of the phrase, “See a penny pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck.” Is it weird that I always feel guilty when I see money lying on the ground? Like I’m somehow hurting the person who dropped it, because maybe they will be back to get it? Maybe they know it accidentally fell out of their pocket at random, and here I am stealing it from them.
I suppose it would be easier if I was a superstitious person. I don’t consider myself one, but even as I think that, I’m reminded that I had this thing happen this week that could maybe be termed “superstitious.”
(I fully realize the following story doesn’t have a thing to do with coin, but I did arrive at it from the coin prompt, so hopefully that works…)
When we first started the whole house hunting/house selling process, we sort of started off backwards. As we were getting the house ready to list, we were also out looking at houses. We ended up finding and falling in love with a house, so we put an offer on it. It was only a few days later that we listed our house, but we thought it would be okay because we were told we were approved for both.
Come to found out, we weren’t, and we had to go back to the Sellers of the house we had fallen in love with to cancel, because we still hadn’t sold ours. We were both devastated because we didn’t believe they would wait for us to sell our house. I guess you should never judge people based on a single encounter on paper… They decided to wait for us to sell our house, although we had to be under contract by the end of October.
That all happened over last weekend, and my Fiance and I ended up having a conversation on Sunday about whether or not we could sell our house in a month. I said, “I have a really good feeling about this week. I think we’re going to get an offer.”
It didn’t happen until Thursday, but it did happen. Does that make me superstitious? Or do i just have a good intuition? Are they the same thing?
Either way, we are finally in the waiting stage and crossing our fingers that this contract holds until the house is finally sold. I might be moving in November, but I can blog until then. Or at least that’s the plan.
Happy Saturday, everyone!!
