House hunting

Yesterday was house hunting day.

I've been so frustrated with my crowded apartment lately that all I can think about is moving. And until this weekend, I didn't realize that a mortgage could potentially be significantly less than our rent! Woot! Granted our parents own cars that are more expensive than the houses we are considering, but in my mind that only reinforces how affordable they are.

The thing I think I'm looking forward to the most about owning my own house is being able to paint. White walls a sad, and I've been wanting to be able to paint my kitchen aqua and red for forever.

The most important thing, though, about moving is that our stinky girl would have lots of room to run around, and lots of windows to look out of all day. She's been a secret pet for about six months now, since our apartment complex doesn't allow pets; which translates into no windows for stinky. I feel so bad for her that we often sneak her out to the lake, to have some window/outside time. We also take her down to my mother inlaw's house when we go visit because it is practically made of windows.

Well, my dirty kitchen calls, so I must end this post.
