House searching this time around has not been so easy. There always seems to be a little something missing from each one we see....no bonus room, too far, rooms are too small, nothing is upgraded. We just haven't had that "Aha! This is it!" moment.
This time around, the home is so much more important because we will be staying there for longer than we've lived anywhere else. We plan to start our family there and we need a place that is able to grow with us unlike our condo which we outgrew in a year. This time around I don't want to have to do any immediate updates. I'd really like something move in ready!
I really want to take my time and find the perfect one, but I'm sooooo ready to have our own home again though. I'm growing more and more impatient by the day really. I miss being able to take care of our own house, being on our own couch, being in our own bed. I miss actually having time to talk to my husband without others being around.
This little time we have spent with our parents has really shown me the simple things I took for granted in our relationship in the past. No more I tell you! No more! I will appreciate every little moment that is just ours.
Oh, I can't wait!
We are moving all of our stuff out of our old condo in a week and a half and hopefully closing that same Friday if all goes well. I've got 4 great (or what appear to be great) houses lined up to see tomorrow and I'm really hoping one of them will be OUR new home!
