On Friday I officially hit the 90 day mark of what I am now lovingly referring to as my incarceration. It has been a miserable 90 days without Wife. I hate to even go here but I just can’t contain it any longer.

When we started this experiment we had high hopes and rose colored glasses of when our house was going to sell and when we’d once again be back together. 90 days later and things are just as they were but now with a loving tinge of tiredness and longing. It’s even coming to the thought of maybe I’ve made the wrong decision and that our life really is North in the mountains rather than here in the desert. I know that if I were to ask, my old job would be given to me with open arms…and that my friends is tough. It’s tough knowing that the new adventure you’ve set out upon has a safety net. So now that things are getting tough and the wheels have met the road it’s so easy to look back on the life I’ve left behind and wonder if it was a mistake.
My new job is wonderful, it’s exciting and different. It allows me to express myself and my talents, something that wasn’t fully appreciated with my old position. But without my wife and a life of our own together is all of this really worth the pain and suffering. I know that in the long run things will work out for the best and that we’ll be able to get back to a normal life, but it’s the thought that this could drag on for another 90 days that makes me cringe.

We have made an attempt to speed the process and dropped the price of our house nearly 11K. Now if we could just get the heavens to part and the skies to open up and that person that’s meant to buy it would just find their way to us we could all get on with our lives. I do have to say that the media isn’t helping our cause. The housing market bubble in Utah hasn’t really burst yet and things are still moving. But with each negative report and word of a recession, people are scared and those that should get into a 1st house now are too afraid to do it. Come on people, it’s now or never. Grow some back bone and take the plunge, it’s the best thing you could ever do. So please… BUY MY HOUSE!
