You've Got That Right, Carolyn
I think that Carolyn here fully expresses how our house hunt is going.
Or maybe she looks too happy. Last night before we went to bed, a house suddenly came on the market. Oh, it was a dream of a house in a dream of a neighborhood! We rubbed our weary eyes and realized that no, it had not been a dream after all. We called our agent to set up a showing. I didn't sleep a wink all night, excited about how we were going to be the first ones through the doors this morning to snag the house. I was placing furniture in my mind and picturing myself humming while drying dishes at the cute kitchen window and the Mister in the den...I don't know, smoking a pipe.
Unfortunately, it just didn't look as great in person as it did in pictures. And it had a basement that was essentially a fourteen hundred square foot murder shack. I actually got lost down there in the dark maze of paneled rooms and the neighbors could probably hear me shrieking, trying to find my husband. The house even has an elevator that doubles as a panic room. I almost needed it for the latter.
Tomorrow we are looking at two more. Send good vibes! Oh, and yes, I am taking photos of every single house so that at least, I will be able to show you all and we can have long talks about the bad and good parts.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Until next time,
x's and o's,
