new house

No room for a man…literally.

April 11, 2008

There isn’t another adult vested in the outcome of my decision. No one to stop me or to tell me I’m nuts. What if I am making a mistake?

To hell with it. You know what? I can live with that. If I do screw it up it will be my fault, not the dumbass I’m married to. And, because I’m a single mom and every success is on my shoulders, there’s a fat chance I’ll screw it up. Right? My worst fear – that the McCain gets elected and WWIII breaks out. Other than that – should be good to go.

Being one with thyself and no one else rocks!

OMG! I think I’m moving to the burbs!

April 10, 2008

I am meeting with an attorney tomorrow … to put an offer on the house!

I went to see it on my lunch break today … was it just this afternoon? Yep. It was love at first sight. It’s so cozy, comfortable and safe. And the aura – is magnificent. Good vibes all around.

And guess who lives in it now? A single woman in her 40’s. No kids. But a strong single woman who’s kept the place absolutely pristine. The house has a magnificent aura. And the view from the living room window? An old park. (The new park with the mountain climbing wall is down the block). But Benjamin will wake up every morning and see “his” park.

Can this city girl handle the burbs?

April 9, 2008

I’ve officially launched my house hunt.

The neighborhood I’ve set my sights on is in the suburbs. The houses are adorable. There are plenty in my price range (thanks to the housing bubble burst) and the schools are top-notch.It’s not a cookie-cutter suburb, it’s an old suburb, but a suburb nonetheless.

Tomorrow I am cramming three house viewings into my lunch break. So tonight I popped Benjamin in the car for a little trip … our mission to get a feel for the neighborhood in the evening.

First we stopped and looked at a few houses from the street, like this one!
