Yesterday, my dear sis, DG, and her hubby and kids came with me to look at a house that I am interested in. To be honest, it is not really the house that I want, but the area. The other houses in my price range are in run down looking areas. This house is in a cute neighborhood.
After getting Darling's assessment of the house, and DG's assessment of the area, I have decided to put in an offer once I can get the pre-approval from the mortgage company. I have to be honest, I am a little scared. I was really hoping for a house that I didn't have to make many changes/updates. The problem is, there isn't one in my price range that is in a really good neighborhood. So, I have just come to accept that I will have to find a house that is functional that I can make some minor changes to over time. This house needs to have some inspections done to be sure there is nothing structurally wrong with it and I want a termite report. Other than that, I can live in the house and make some modifications as I go. The only big question - will my furniture fit? Tony is giving me almost all the furniture and I was hoping to take the dining set (which is HUGE). Not sure how that will work, but I am sure I will figure it out.
Confession: I joined Match.com to see what was out there. In 24 hours, I had 68 men look at my profile and 4 men email me to see if we could meet. Ok, now really guys, do you think that I am just going to run right out and meet up with you? These men emailed me some vague description of themselves (and don't have any real information on their profiles). I replied that I would like to correspond with them for a bit and then perhaps talk on the phone. Surprise! None of them responded to me. Shocker. Players abound :) I think that Match.com will not be the place for me to start looking into dating. I am going to take a vow of single-cy (yes, I made that up) to give myself time to heal and be in a better place mentally and emotionally. I don't need any XY chromosome drama right now....
Off I go! Almost done knitting my sister's purse, too, and then I can felt and block it. I have no other UFOs at this point, so I am trying to figure out what to do next :)
