It's only money.

Right???  Well, I guess thats true if you are married to Donald Trump or are Kate Middleton's soon to be born baby or if you were smart enough to buy a very cheap house when you were first married and now have oodles of equity. Alas, Mike is NOT Donald Trump (thank god), I am fairly certain I am NOT Kate Middleton's baby and no one told us to buy a house when we first got married (and I think we all know who is blame for that right Mom?)

Why the sudden concern for cost you say? Well, this weekend we received a revised building estimate based on the final plans for the house and it was more...a LOT more than the original estimate. I guess that's not all together unusual or surprising but still frustrating since it has brought this process to a bit of a halt. 

So what now? Do we compromise and give up on the things we really wanted? I mean it's not like we put in a swimming pool in the basement or anything. These were must haves like toilets and appliances. Or do we put this whole project on hold until we can do it the way we want?  Perhaps there is some happy medium that we can figure out that gives us what we want while still being able to send our kids to college? 

Which brings us back to the whole problem of my patience (or lack thereof). But you (all 3 of you) will be proud to know I am chillin.  Letting the universe decide what happens next. It is SOOOO unlike me.  Maybe I am growing up and maturing? Or maybe I am just too busy/tired to force anything to happen. In the meantime, I keep waiting for the Muppets to show up and tell me to keep the house as it is (random Good Luck Charlie reference). 

Stay tuned...
