We saw houses over the weekend.
While I am not an interior designer by any means, I will give you a tip. Extremely dark cobalt blue carpet may hide stains, but it is a BAD idea to cover your whole house with it. To say that this house was dark (you all know I am a fan of dark, but everyone has their limits), dismal, and depressing is an understatement. I was actually afraid to go into the master bedroom. It was so dark (room darkening curtains, closed windows, dark carpet, dark bedding, and a very strange netting thing over the bed) that I was slightly afraid to go in. In extremely stark contrast to the rest of the house, the kitchen was so freaking bright, that I needed a minute or two for my eyes to adjust. Needless to say, that one was a 'No.'
The other one we saw, we are interested in. Great floorplan, ready to move in, all the colors I like.... but the yard is smaller and behind the house....is a gas station. The heck? aurgh... but we put in an offer anyway...and then found out they were trying to do a quick sale because the family was trying to avoid foreclsure. What that means for them is a quick sale. What that would mean for us is a ton of paperwork. Dealing with banks is a pain in the ass.
Such is my life.
I really am getting more and more down every day. I have tried for a long time to be optimisitc, but the most you're going to get out of me lately is a shrug. My smiles are few and far between......reserved for the kids. I just don't know what to do anymore, and to say that the current situation is taking a toll would be an understatement.
I know that's all I seem to say lately. Sorry, guys....
