Why is it that something truly looks more interesting when you can't have it.
This must have something to do with our caveman instincts- like in the caveman days if you saw someone eating something and it did not make them sick you wanted it. However if the caveman was eating something poisonous and died and it became available- you didn't want it.
Husband and I (with two little ones in tow), have recently been looking for a home to rent. It started off as a fun adventure but has quickly become a drag. We try to see as many houses as we can in an outing, so that means I am in the backseat with the boys trying to feed them a bottle or solids while driving from house to house. Fortunately they don't seem to mind yet, and no one has gotten car sick.
No house seems perfect. We saw one that had a great interior, but not the best neighborhood. We thought about it for awhile and inquired into it a few days later and found out it was rented. Somehow it immediately became the one for me. Knowing someone else liked it made me realize it was the perfect house and I was disappointed . However, the next day, the realtor called and said it was maybe available. We did a second showing and decided it was as perfect as a rental was going to get. I started mentally moving in, placing my furniture,and dreaming about our first party there. Unfortunately it turned out it was rented and now I can't get it out of my mind. I can't stop comparing all the other houses we are looking at to it. I want it!
