so many of you have emailed me (have i mentioned how much i love getting emails from you? they're so.... personal. gersh i'm smert.) asking if we're still house hunting, or if we stopped, or what we're doing. we are still looking. and we're waiting. and looking. and waiting. and hoping. and crossing our fingers.
there just isn't anything out there right now that we're both in love with (or can afford). and i'm freaked out that we are truly SO LIMITED in what we are comfortable affording, that it's going to be a difficult road. did that make any sense? basically, the bank tells us we can afford a hell of a lot more than i would ever want to get ourselves into. talk about pressure. talk about everything else in our lives sacrificing to pay a mortgage. i don't want to live like that. so realistically, what we can afford, is barely anything in house terms. so i'm trying to figure out how i can get some money to give us some leeway. and then i curse myself for the amount we spent on our glorious wedding, because that money would be the perfect amount right now to put down on a house. but oh well. i don't regret it and wouldn't do it any other way if i had to do it all over again. except maybe i'd be richer. haha
so yes everyone.. we're still looking for a house. but mostly we're just waiting for one. the right one to come along. the right one we can afford. because there are plenty of houses out there i'd love to live in- they are in great neighborhoods, and are adorable and gorgeous and lovely, but they are totally out of our price range. and the ones in our price range, suck. isn't that always the way?! or maybe it's just the way when you aren't selling one house to move into another? i guess the first house you buy is the toughest??? hell, i don't know. all i know is that this isn't half as fun as i thought it would be. lol
