Not today...

DC
I am whooped... I called the agent and cancelled on the cute house and decided to wait until next week. The house had a gas fireplace - period. No A/C or furnace and the house, though cute as a bug's ear, was built in 1920. I would almost bet there is no insulation or real sheet rock under the wallpaper. Have looked at so many "flip" houses, that all I see is lipstick on pigs... pretty, but still pigs and so many that people tried to flip and ran out of money or time. I think I am going to check out some other areas, no kids in school, it doesn't matter where a person hangs their hat.

DH is going to go to an auction in the morning, but I think he is tiring of the hunting as well.

Sad day, it has been coming for such a long time. He took DC to the vet for her final visit and didn't bring her back this time. Jack and Jill seem to notice that she's gone and Jack just keeps looking at us - accusingly or maybe he's afraid he will be next. It will be healthier for me because I am allergic, but it still hurts. She peed on the floor in front of the refrigerator and I knew it was time. I tried so hard to re-home her, but nobody wanted an old, senile cat that this last year couldn't find her way into the box every time.

I'm tired and really low, so I will say good night and go to bed for the first time in twenty-seven years without a cat wandering around the house. I hope I can sleep.

  1. So sorry about your kitty. Our Susie is old too and this summer is hard on her. As for the house hunting--John had good luck buying houses at government auctions. Don't know if they still do that or not. He bought one brick house, three bedroom, one bath, one garage for 30,000. It did need some work but still was a bargain.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about DC, I know how long you have tried and that with your allergy and all.

    On the other side of things, I love those sayings, cute as a bug's ear, etc. I was trying to remember one earlier, right now I have forgotten which one. But next time it happens, I know where to turn.

    Please take care of yourself.
