What do you do when you are stuck making a decision?
Back story. We live in a 1 bedroom. I am fine with it. I love my apartment. I hate change it freaks me out. I'm being laid off next month so adding another change may make me have a breakdown.
We found a 2 bedroom. I loved it at first but I have talked myself sick. Like I wanna dry all day and throw up sick.
Do I move?
Pros of my home now:
space separate from living space
1920s charm (built ins, original tile, deep tub)
Small shared yard
Only 1 set of stairs to go up
Shared patio with stairs into small yard (so a front and back door)
Tons of windows
Feels like my home, I brought my baby to this home. I watched him take his first steps there, I stayed up long hours looking out the window at 3 am nursing him. I am proud to show people the charm and I feel at home.
Pros of maybe place
Tons of attic storage
the view (city and mountains)
Lots of light
Cons of my home now
The view (of a bust street)
on busy street
Cons of maybe place:
I don't know if we should sign the lease or not. Do I go for the extra bath and bedroom with no charm and no separate dining space? Or do I stay where I am and break my sons heart? THM loves the place we looked at. I am not making my final decision on him, but he is a huge factor.
The price difference is $375 per month we can afford, me working or not.
I would post pictures but I need some opinions of the straight facts.
The place I live now has 8 units separated into 2 buildings. The maybe place is 8 units in one building.
Questions I have asked myself:
Where would I put a Christmas tree?
How would I get the bikes upstairs and where to keep them?
Could I get a portable washer and air dry?
Would my son actually sleep in his own room?
Would I hate myself if we moved here?
Where would I sew?
Can I picture myself here?
How would I store my DVDs and books?
What if my furniture doesn't fit?
Any other questions I should ask myself? THH says he doesn't care, oh how I wished he would. My child cried when I said I didn't know if we should move. He likes it, I did too but now I've given myself too much time to think and I'm freaking the $&:)(?&/ out.
