...and so it begins

Normally, searching for your new home is a fun thing.  Right? 

Yeah.  Well.  Our active search has begun.  I found a house online that I really liked the look of and wanted to see.  10 minutes after we got there, I couldn't wait to get the hell out.  Very ugly vibe going on in there.  Fabulous neighborhood.  Horrific vibe in the house.  pfft.

Today, we go to look at another house.  So-so neighborhood, but really big house.

I SHOULD be really excited, shouldn't I?!  But I'm not.

AURGH.......

  1. Buying a house is like looking fro a used car.  It's just luck of the draw.  Good luck with it.  ~ Mike

  3. I had a bad vibe like that last year and it was at a Budhist semenary too.  It just felt so cloying evil as we walked around the grounds of the enormous castle like building.  Even when we went inside, I was reluctant to go any further.  Weird sensation!  I've never felt like that ever before and I respect the Budhist way of life too.
    You will obviously know when you find the right one Amy, you've got the right internal tuner.    Good luck in  your searches and I hope it happens soon.  Jeanie

  4. A fun thing?!!!??!! Nooooo!!! I hate buying a house. The stress kills me. And all that driving around looking at houses that turn out to be located next to the town dump or worse...But you WILL find a house. I'm glad the search has begun and I hope you get into one ASAP. Hang in there.--Cin

  7. Here's a hint:  be broke.  Our house budget was so low, and the first few we saw were so bad, that this one was a CASTLE!  I still feel that way.  I know the vibe, though.  We saw one that I was ready to walk out of before we saw the whole thing.  I stayed, with Kevin, but there is no WAY I would have bought it.

  8. If you find a really big Dutch Colonial on the river and it has a secret room in the basement that is painted red -- BUY IT!!  I can't wait to read your blog entries after you move in!  ;)

    XOXO,

  9. Finding a house is hard work. And then you have to move in. On the other hand, house hunting and moving in also mean moving OUT, too. Margo

  10. As someone who moved four times in 3.5 years, I am glad I am back home and settled.  Moving is NO fun.  My heart is still in Colorado and I do hope to live there again one day, but for now, home is where I need to be.  Funny how I ended up where I started out at, eh?  ::wink::  Hope you find the perfect place in a great neighborhood where your kids can make great friends.  Some of my best childhood memories is the time I spent with good friends.

    Best Wishes for Happy House Hunting!~

  11. We just moved and I hated every minute of it but it is good to be almost completely settled now.  We had so much to move with owning a small business and three kids and a huge house... it took three trips to FL and back.  Nightmare!!!!  Hope ya find just the right place.  Keep us posted.  Okay, I am getting more caught up now in your journal.  Hugs,
    Lisa
