Project Life, Week 3 and more

Week3
 
I planed to talk a lot about this project life layout, but life has taken an unexpected turn.  And it is one I really don't want to be making pages for.
 
We found out our landlord wants to sell the house we rent.  It completely caught us off guard.  We have to move out by the end of the month.  They are giving us the first option to buy, but the house is very small and the schools are only so-so.  We really don't want to buy it.  We started to look for other homes to rent and also looked at buying a house.  Buying was something we were planning to do in a few month from now and not right away.  We thought we would have plenty of time to look. We have been completely overwhelmed.  We did some intense house hunting and found a house that was perfect.  It was exactly what I wanted.  I could not find one thing wrong.  We put an offer on it right away and found out today that two other people are pre-inspecting that house and will most likely be putting in full price offers and will probably go into a bidding war.  Now our chances of getting the house are very low because our offer is a little under and we really can't put in any more than asking because it is at the top of our range.  I tried really hard to not fall in love with that house, but I did.  I don't think we will be able to find anything even remotely close to it.  Now I have to look for a decent temporary place to stay which is very difficult in our area.  There just isn't enough housing.  Packing is depressing and almost impossible to do when you have two little ones.  I wish we had some family near by, but everyone is 2,500 miles away.  I've spent a lot of time in tears.  This really makes me want to move back east, even with the blizzard that they have going on right now.  To top it all off the little guy has been waking up 5 times a night for the past few nights and I've had no sleep.  The project life spread for these past two weeks is going to be a blast to make, not.
 
For now I have a very minimal amount of stuff to scrap with.  I only have what will fit in a laptop sized bag available.  Everything else is packed up.  I'm bummed that I can't get much scraping done.  It always relaxes me and I really need that outlet right now.
