house hunting

we are house hunting. sounds like fun, doesn't it? NOT! maybe for the first couple of hundred it is just tiring. i am almost to the point of saying "just buy one and let me know where it is". i would never do that. there is SO MUCH out there! new ones. old ones. fancy ones. fixer uppers. old lady houses. some with basements. some with crawl spaces (what the heck is that?!) a few attics. some in the city. some in the country. some that should be torn down (really!) some have pools. some have jacuzzis. fences. no fences. tree houses. out houses. I AM SO TIRED OF IT ALL!

i am sure that the perfect house will happen along. probably right after we stop looking for one. until then i will spend a portion of every day checking the internet, the newspaper and bulletin boards. and even though i have those occasional moments where i want to stop the world and get off for awhile, i do kinda like the whole house hunting thing. it is fun to go into someone else's house and see how they live. it's funny to me to see a house that is absolutely immaculate until you find that closet where they threw everything when they found out you were coming! and don't forget the lovely smell of pine-sol in the air! please! trust me, after i move in it will never be that clean again! (maybe when my kids move out!) sometimes there is the pathetic little doggie staring at you through the sliding glass doors (the one who normally lives indoors until the house hunters come by) or the stuck up, ticked off cat out in the garage.

oh well, that's how it goes.



Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.-Margaret Nadauld
