Day 26: Breaking up is hard to do

December 17, 2011

A calendar notification popped up on my computer screen reminding me that today was closing day. Little reminders of what could have been had littered my week since the breakup.

I clicked dismiss as the 60-plus homes I’d seen flashed through my mind. Not a single one had had the perfect combination, except the Brooklyn Street home.

I thought about the house that excited me earlier this week; it took my mind off being just a renter again. But the thrill had worn off. Yes, the Ottawa Hills house was just that. A rebound. A distraction to ease my loss. Is this regret I’m feeling? I wondered.

Quickly, I reminded myself that these things happen for a reason. It was really a blessing in disguise that things ended when they did. It just wasn’t meant to be.

Is it just me, or are the parallels in homeownership and dating aplenty?

In my last Project 365, I likened the house hunt to finding the perfect man. The first post in this Project 365 was titled Single and ready to mingle. Now I’ve got my breakup story. The End, doubt, rebound, pep talks… Yep, that sounds like a human-to-human breakup to me.

Just cross your fingers that finding ‘the one’ doesn’t parallel the pace of my love life. Or lack thereof, I should say. 🙂
