|The "Not New" House|
I suppose you wonder why we (I) picked this house when it has problems. Well, it's like this... Even a brand new house has its problems. Going in, knowing what the problems are give a person some advantage. The house is in an excellent neighborhood, close to shopping, medical, and pizza delivery. I had quite a list of things that we wanted in a house, not many even came close.
Large fenced-in shaded yard for J n J
Double garage for DH
Work shop area for DH
Shed for overflow and mower
Space for my 'womb' (it's small, but sufficient)
Two full bathrooms
Split bedroom layout
Wood floors (the real kind)
It has doggy doors, a gas fireplace, a large closet for my silver and crafts, but most of all - it has character! The square footage on the ad was wrong, it is smaller than my old place, but bigger than the one I am in now.
I am very excited. It's like a mile to a Chinese restaurant! I hope we are in before Memorial Day.
