House hunting

Day 3. I am running out of time. No sight of the quarry yet. I did not expect this to be so hard. An inanimate object should not be this elusive. But it seems all the architects in this town did their work while smoking pot. And the realtors seem similarly stoned. Maybe it’s the heat.

I need to find something soon. For my wife’s sake. My child’s.

I’m dehydrated. I’m not sleeping any more. Yesterday I almost settled on a home with a room that can only be reached by ladder. I think the heat is getting to me.

I’m hopeful today will bring success. But I can’t help but feel I might not be the hunter here. As I drive down the street I can feel them watching me…stalking me…

  1. Wishing you all the best in your house hunt. It’s maddening, much like the heat! I don’t know about your area, but we had much better luck in winter. Somehow I got the impression that isn’t an option ? (second try at posting this comment.)

    1. We’re moving to a city on the north-east coast of South Africa. It’s a tropical climate, so “winter” comprises of a few rainy days scattered through June/July where the temperature dips below 20 Celcius and has everyone hiding beneath blankets. We’re on a bit of a schedule, so can’t really wait until then, thus my house-hunting during one of the hottest weeks of the year 😀

    1. Die internet lieg. Dit sê huise is beskikbaar, dan is hulle nie, en die foto’s wys nie waterskade in die kombuikaste, los deurhandvatsels en verf wat afdop nie 🙂

      Ons is piekfyn, maar besig. Kom nie by skryf uit nie.
