So enough about you, back to me because this is after all my blog. I have news yes, news that I can't stop thinking about! News, news, news! It's out with the old and in with the new for 2011! The house is sold, well at least in contract amigo. That's right the latest chapter in the always tumultuous life of the Bo's. And we have drum roll please.... found the house of our dreams, though honestly this house had never entered our city dwelling dreams in any form. As the thought of this family moving into a 101 year old monster of a house had not even occurred to us. I do happen to like old house's their history, I do, but owning one...well they don't tend to have jacuzzi tubs and walk in closets. And our new house is no exception to the rule. What it does have though is lots of bathrooms and doors. Doors everywhere, doors that lead you behind the walls in which you can exit by another door. This as you can imagine is a huge selling point for the kids. Not to mention (VBA (veiled brag alert)) a huge in the ground pool with a diving board and count 'em sister, 2 slides. Did you read that? Maybe you should read it again and maybe I should work on the veiled part of my VBA's.
I'm as enthralled as a teenager in love honestly. I can't wait to see the house again. Of course like any good romance their is the chance that it will all fall apart yet. We are merely dating not even engaged yet, which I think that going from accepted offer to "in contract" implies, don't you? I hope so I hope I am not just reading all the signals wrong. Ah the angst of finding the right one.
So what have I downloaded to my Kindle? (my poor Kindle had been the object of my affection only a week before, clearly eclipsing the strong feelings I once held for my droid, and though I still love them I fear that I am no longer "in love" with them. A book on interior design. Because, and not to beat a dead horse with a theme, like any good catch their is of course room for improvement.
So off to the races of home remodeling and decorating, as this house needs help and though I work had to keep negative thoughts like "money pit" and the "Adams Family house" out they do have a way of creeping in. But it does help me keep perspective because there are times when I daydream of my family's future in the house and I realize that in everyone, I am 20lbs lighter, with better hair, the kids are well behaved and engaged in book reading, piano playing and other Currier and Ives type of behavior. It is true that I told Steve that we should call the rooms by the proper names like the "salon" or the "gaming parlor" . This from a girl who for a full 6 years couldn't stop calling the entrance way the lobby, after moving from Manhattan to the boroughs.
So follow along the trials of tribulations of our latest adventure, next week: pictures!
