AHH. . . .Breath of fresh Air
After spending this last week, looking at houses and thinking about putting an offer in on one, I think I am more confused and stressed then ever. What I have learned from house shopping is that the more you see the house the more you love it or the more you don't. All through the holiday season we watched the homes come on realtor.com and wondered what they really looked like inside. We feel in lust for one home with a nice kitchen. We went back a second time knowing that it needed some work but not sure how much. We still thought after the second look that this was our house, but after the 3rd we knew. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .That it was not our house. It needed way more work than we had in us to do. It needed the basement to be totally redone, it needed paint on every wall and new carpet threw out. Plus it needed another bathroom. This all rang to us to be to costly and time consuming. It looked nice in the pictures, with a new kitchen, covered porch, and landscaped yard. But in the end it is not enough to have a new kitchen, it needs more work and money than we have. Just like this cartoon, why do they have to hide a fixer upper behind nice pictures. I like this cartoon. Image what her mom was thinking when she made all the messes. Jim and I have broadened our search and and are looking at two more houses here in Green River and if it does not work then we will have to cross the line and go into the Greater Rock Springs area. Jim and I would prefer to stay in Green River because it is 20 minutes closer to his work, meaning that he has 20 more minutes to sleep in the morning and 20 more minutes to spend with his kids in the evening. So over a week it is 100 minutes and if you times that by 52 weeks it is 5, 200 more minutes so if you divided it it is 3.61 days a year we have with him every evening and 3.61 more days of sleep he gets. I guess only time will tell were we are going to live. On the other hand. After lots of talking and singing with Madison. I am pleased to announce that Madison had decided that she wants to be a Sunbeam. She was a little reserved about the whole thing today, but when it came time she when to her teacher and sat like a champ. She says she want to be a sunbeam. She was so happy when she saw me at the end. She came running up to me to announce that she was a good girl. The Primary president even came up to me and told me how wonderful Madison and Mason were. I don't know what happened. But I am very happy to say, that what ever it was it was great. Another week is gone and the Moffat's are conquering new things every day. I guess that is what we were sent here for, to learn and grow each and every day.
