I cannot stop daydreaming about buying the fourplex. Today I was thinking about how we'll have to have a big open house. It has a small deck and I am looking forward to sitting out there in the summer, enjoying the evening sun. The kitty could even sit out there with me! It will be great.
I was considering asking Ethan about starting the paperwork for buying the fourplex from his Dad when he comes to visit in July, but I think that would be a crazy amount of work. Plus, I want him to come home to a home he's familiar with in October, and I really don't want to move in the winter. So I guess we won't move until next spring. In the meantime, I'll just relish in all the things I love about our current place -- my running favorite routes, the quiet neighborhood, the way the sun shines in the windows in the summer, and the beautiful flowers in the front garden. Our home has a lot of wonderful memories! We got engaged and married while we lived there. So moving will make me sad too.
But I can't wait to have my own house to decorate and make beautiful!
