I've been bzzzzzzy. Very busy day! Fun, though...I like busy days...
I got wrapped up in looking at houses online yesterday. I found one that i want. I want it so bad, but i need it to go down about $30k. lol. I showed Gerr the house and some others and then he started looking and showing me what he liked. We have different tastes for sure.
What is it with men and the whole it HAS to have a garage??? ok I get it, gear heads! But those are cool additions you can build if you find a cool enough house with enough room outside. To me it's not that important, it's kind of a bonus. Give me a driveway and some overhead cover thing.
I ask for things that you can't really get unless it comes with the house. Like a nice backyard. With trees. A nice open space with a fence so that people can't look over and your dog can't climb over it....Such as my dream homes' backyard....
That right there is worth the friggin money. I WANT!!!!!!!!!!!
Sigh...we also have a difference in ideas of what we can afford. He feels we can afford three times as much as we're paying right now. I think he's on crack. Add maybe 550 bucks to what we're paying right now and that's my friggin limit. He wants SPACE! square feet! acres! (more crack maybe?)! So maybe he thinks we should buy a mansion and have different wings? I believe he thinks we make a lot more money than we actually do. This is when i like being the sane, logical person, with irrational fears.
I believe when you own a house, anything can happen. You have to be ready for ANYTHING (rat infestations, meteors, retirement) and EVERYTHING. You have to have a savings, enough credit cards to help you out (not maxed out credit cards but paid off credit cards), and no debt. I believe the house is your debt. It's a big purchase. But it's a special purchase, because your home becomes your own (and the banks) to play with!!!
Ok..i'm going to pray that no one buys this house for like a year. I'm watching it...closely....drive by this weekend. i want to touch it....hehehehe...my preshhhhhhhious.
