One Item Ticked Off the List


I have a list of things I need to do this week while I’m off. Each day, I’ll choose a different task.

Today was my bathroom. I know, this pic, it doesn’t look like much was done, but I went through EVERYTHING! Four trash bags were filled!

Nope, No House

Josh called the realtor. She told him, flat-out, that it wasn’t a great house. It was previously owned by an old lady, the old lady type with lots of cats. These cats sprayed. *gross* Add to it that the basement had a major leak (a third of the foundation had to be replaced), yeah, not a good house for us.

But!! It invigorated Josh into looking for a house. We were thinking we might stay here, until we know for sure that he’s going to be become a regular within a certain time frame, but not really now. We’ll be applying for home loans around winter-time, I think. Our lease is up in May (May 01, 2009), and we want to be gone by then. We’re hoping that we can move out in April, technically, and use that last month to fix anything that needs to be fixed, like painting Madi’s room, replacing the blinds, etc.

Now I don’t feel so ridiculous looking at washer and dryers that conserve energy, looking at dishwashers, or drooling over a 26.6-cubic-feet refrigerator that has a freezer double the size of our current one, :lol:. *w00t*

House Hunting

Okay, Josh and I were looking at houses (this one and this one), and to pay what we’re paying in rent right now ($625), for either one, we’d have to put down around $15K. While that’s not a huge amount of money, our problem is, HA HA, we can’t save that much, or else SRS cuts us off. *screams*
