I just thought I should mention that I described our house hunting experience on a comment to yesterday's post.  I don't want to repeat it all, so you can go back and read it there.   It would be the last comment, and shouldn't be difficult to find.  (I think I actually wrote it in two separate comments).

I may write another post about the house hunting experience, but for now I'm just trying to assimilate all my impressions and how I feel about the entire process.  

New houses today, and new housing developments today, are different than any I have ever known.  How different our world has become - everything changes, and styles in housing are no exception.

I just want to get it over and done with.  Waiting around drives me crazy! 

The thing I find most noticeable is the lack of color.  I can see why model homes would try to maintain a neutral look in furnishings, but I would prefer a bit of color here and there. 


  1. I love the older built houses myself. Give me a craftsman house anyday. I'm happy they found something but that is a long wait and then I guess they would have to rent somewhere while the house is built?

    1. heT original plan was that Jeannie & Arianna would stay at my house while we found a place, and Donald and Autumn would stay with mom. Now I don't know what will happen, but I can accommodate them for the long haul, if necessary.

  2. Thank you for answering my questions in your prior post. I had to smile when you told them you were going to sneak in your boyfriend through the private entrance :D

    I do not envy anyone who is undergoing a house move it would stress me out. I stayed in my Houston house longer than I intended because I just couldn't handle selling a house and buying another while I was still working full-time.

    1. I have moved many times throughout my life, and when I have been in the same place for a length of time, always got to urge to move on. Now that I'm old I don't want to move anymore, although I won't mind leaving the place I am now renting. I will be glad if I can get back to a house that I know I will remain in. I haven't heard from Jeanne today so I don't know if anything is new. To tell the truth, I am not happy about waiting for a house to be built - we won't be moving until probably the end of this year or the beginning of next. It will be more difficult for me the longer we wait.
