This photo is a total lie, because I have nowhere to put it, and it isn't hanging as of yet. In fact, it sits and waits for our big planned move, which leads me to my next point.
Which is that we are house hunting. Our plan to move and rent has become a plan to move and buy. It just makes more sense fiscally at the moment. I was hesitant to mention it here, in case everything goes belly-up, but there it is. It may still go belly-up.
We have spent the last couple weekends driving out to the 'burbs to look at houses. The first weekend we saw one we both loved, but we hesitated because it felt "too soon", and we lost out. Last weekend we saw another that we both liked - though it needs work - but the seller is being stubborn on one sticking point (an underground oil tank), so we've had to keep looking.
|No more playgrounds under highways in our future.|
I am so excited about the move, the home that we can call our own and paint and update do whatever we want with. A backyard that I could be - as soon as this summer - sitting in, drinking lemonade, watch L. play in a paddle pool. I'm so confident in the town we've chosen - with every visit there we like it more.
So there we are. If I've been quiet, it's because I'm plotting. I'm on Pinterest like crazy, dreaming of my future home (follow me there? www.pinterest.com/thecrabigail). I'll keep you updated in time on our progress, please wish us luck!
