Heavy sigh.....


This is a house we looked at today. We actually LOOKED at it. As in, walked inside, picked it apart, discussed the walls we would knock out, decided who would live where and contemplated how long it would take to get the pool fixed. We fell in love with the 6.45 acres and the amazing showers. I calculated how long it would take to remove the wallpaper from EVERY wall in the house. We tried to come up with uses for all SEVEN bedrooms and I estimated how many cans of scrubbing bubbles it would take to clean all 6.5 bathrooms. When we left we drove away and I had the greatest feeling. I was ready to make an offer....and so was Brian. I was already picturing Brian and I growing old together on that front porch and the kids and grand kids splashing away in the backyard. We made a phone call and were ready to offer full price for it (because it was an AMAZING deal) only to find that someone beat us to it just TWO short days ago! We were both pretty bummed, but we know that it just wasn't meant to be. The search continues....but I am still in love with that house. Just for the record.

ug, I hate it when that happens! But it is always a for sure "slamming of the door" if you know what i mean.
