Stupid Real Estate Market

K and I have decided that we cannot stay married, but neither one of us is in a big hurry to physically separate. I think there are a few reasons for that. We want to continue to make a stable family for our kids. We like each other and even if I lived somewhere else I would be over every day. There are also financial considerations. Between the 2 of us we could support a residence for me, but that would not leave a lot of money for much else.

We need to create some separation between us and the first step is separate bedrooms. Our current house does not have an extra room so we are looking for another on. Selling our house is being something of a challenge and it has been very frustrating. As you can imagine it is not easy to keep a house with 4 kids in it showing condition is easy. We could also use new carpet, which we just can't afford. K has done a lot of painting that still in not enough. We have not painted the trim (and there is a LOT of it) and every time we talk to our realtor she gives is attitude and that have K on the edge.

This frustration is on top of the stress she has having a gay husband. {sigh}
