Sunday, October 4, 2015 of our house

Grandson #1 had a birthday party last weekend, so we finally had to stop procrastinating and get the last of our projects done around the house. You should have seen us scurrying around at the last minute trying to get everything finished.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are finished too, but I'll save those photos for a later post.  Soon, I promise. No more putting things off. (She says for at least the 10 millionth time in her life.)

And a scene from the birthday party that provided the necessary impetus for getting finished...

About $100K over the budget, but a girl can dream, right?

I haven't decided whether or not the fun outweighs the depression when you look at houses outside your price range, especially when you find your dream house, but I keep doing it. If nothing else, it gives me something to post about.

Take a look at this beauty I found today. It has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a guest house that is not included in the 3574 square feet. It was built in 1957 and sits on over half and acre of beautifully landscaped property.

When I showed the listing to my daughter, she was bowled over and sent me a message that said, "This would be worth the mortgage. OMG!"

If we bought this property, we'd definitely be "house poor" and living on pasta for the rest of our lives, but c'mon...look at all those windows!
