a post for the worriers.

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.
