Can anyone tell I wish I was back home by the ocean???
The test results are back and everything is just fine!!! No problems! I need a follow-up boobie squishing in 3 months and all is OK!
We just got back from Phoenix late Sunday night. The house hunting trip was VERY sucessful! We found our "dream house" (with a little less space than we wanted, but we can add on) and we also found a second choice house (bigger house, but the landscape and views are lacking). We are putting our first offer on the house today! I say first offer because the house is still being built and we have some things we would like done to the house that may bring the price up just a little bit more. The house is about 2000 Sq Ft on 1.25 acres out in the middle of a bunch of cow farms and horse pastures! It's a 35 mile commute to work (one-way) and the closest grocery store is about 15 miles away, but that is what we were looking for. Yup, we will be out in the middle of BFE (Bum F*ck Egypt...) It is a VERY open floorplan with a fireplace in the great room and a fireplace out in the front courtyard. The master bedroom is HUGE (about the size of our current living room) with a beautiful master bath (seperate shower and whirlpool tub, double sinks, seperate commode) a huge walk in closet with a view (yup, a window in the walk in closet). The kitchen opens out into the great room and family room with a beautiful wet bar in the great room. We will wall off the back yard into a separate back courtyard in a couple of years when we put in the pool. There are 5 floor to ceiling windows in the great room (our ceilings are 10 feet) that really open up the floor and brighten up the house. With the acreage, we are going to be able to build a little barn on the back of the property and get a couple of sheep! First knitting, then dyeing, then spinning... Forget that, just go to the source and get the sheep fur from the sheep. I am TOTALLY out of control!!! We will research what kinds of sheep can be raised down there before we get any, but the sheep are probably a year down the road.
