Well, we went. And the theme of the day was NEW.
First thing this morning, we went to Eleanor’s new preschool. It was nice. They really seem to have worked out this whole takin’ care of little ones thing. I’m now the mother I have always dreamed of being. I even have a hang tag for the carpool lane! I’m Snack Mom week after next. I think this will work out fine. Eleanor played with the other kids and got into EVERYTHING. The two teachers seem like they will keep my kid alive just fine for three days each week. New preschool experience: check!
Then we went to the potential house. What can I say? I am feeling a bit like Goldie Lox here: Looking for just the right size and slightly smoked (I do so love a fish joke…). The point is, our current house is too big (well, not exactly, but the schools suck – which is just a problem that is too big), and the potential house is too small (especially for the price), and we have pleanty of time for just right. Also, the floorplan was really odd. Some of that I really liked, however, but the master bath… WAY TOO SMALL. It wasn’t even 4-feet wide. Small. I could see myself living there, but Tony and the girls would have to get rid of a LOT of junk.. (My stuff is stuff, their stuff is junk. Funny thing is that they feel that it is the other way around.) Never the less, the seach continues, and is now more refined. There was a very similar house around the corner (read: in a cul-de-sac off the main road) which was 40-thousand dollars less, in a little rougher shape and more appealing to me.
We are going to see some other houses in the neighborhood on Saturday. Then we’ll have a lot of thinking to do.
