a post for the worriers.

Thursday, February 17, 2011


what's the saying about worrying and a rocking chair? something like.... "worrying is like a rocking chair. it gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere."

i have never gotten very personal on the ol' bloggy blog, but there is a first time for everything. i had some routine blood work done a week ago and a heart echo on monday. yes, that's right, i had a heart echo on valentine's day. ironic?

though i know in my mind there is nothing seriously wrong, i can't help but sit around and worry about the test results. why can't i know the results immediately?? geez.

on top of it all, it's time for the annual rent increase extravaganza. anytime we get a chunk of extra change, it goes straight to savings (for the most part). by the time we are 30ish (getting closer!) we will hopefully have enough for a nice little apartment down payment. it seems like every time our rent gets increased, i see our dream home getting further and further away, and it makes my stomach hurt.

sure, we could live in the suburbs or even a cheaper part of manhattan. but the cost of moving and daily commute would put us back on an even keel. so i'm just left here complaining about it. join me won't you?

so here i sit.... worrying, waiting, worrying some more. it's getting me nowhere.

i like being candid with you guys. let's keep this up.

I feel you on rent increases. I would love to buy a place but for where I want to live it isn't practical at the moment. Someday ::sigh::

I'm so glad you were candid-it's hard to fake it in your personal space, and your blog certainly falls in that sphere. I have some tests coming up soon, and I know I'm nervous about them, but it's true, worrying won't get you anywhere. I'm sure everything will be fine, and if it isn't, you'll cross that bridge when you come to it. No sense in worrying about something you have no control over.

xo, Lena

Here's what I do when I start to worry: I write everything that's worrying me down and ask what can I do about each item. If there's nothing I can do, I have to stop worrying -- that's my rule. I hope your test results came back well and that the rent increase this year is only a wee little one.
