We say that every day . . at least twice every day.
Both of us watch realtor.com because it’s kinda entertaining to see the crazy prices and how quickly a house is marked as “pending” after having been listed. It would not be entertaining if we were first time home buyers or needed to find a home NOW and couldn’t wait around til things calm down . . if they ever calm down.
Last night we found a house in Carthage. It’s on a creek, has 7 acres, has a well. The house isn’t as perfect for us as this one is (it’s two story with a basement so basically three story). The unfinished basement was set up for a shop with a nice dust collection system. Vince thought that was great. I’d prefer his shop and wood working NOT be in the basement. It did have an out building that may or may not work for a shop.
I could see the wheels turning in Vince’s head. He was thinking . . we bought a house before selling a house and it worked out well. What if we’re not so lucky this time?
I was thinking . . moving! Packing! Getting Boots adjusted to a new place. It would be about 20 to 25 miles farther from Addie. We’re in the absolute perfect place for Addie now as far as picking her up. We’re on their side of Joplin so they can easily drop her off and then go do what they want to do and come back by here. When they’re going to Louisiana, they can leave the night before, drive the first 45 minutes of the 12 hour trip, spend the night here, then finish the trip the next day.
Last night Vince said . . want to call the realtor? I said . . let’s wait til morning and see how we feel.
This morning we both said “We’re never moving again!” So . . we’re not even looking at it.
