Is it really only Wednesday? It seems like it should be much later in the week to me.
I'm so busy, every time I open my email there are 3 more emails of houses to look at from our realtor. It's a lot to sift though, so if you are waiting for an email from me, email me again. It's quite possible it's buried under tons of houses.
A lot of these houses are bank owned and trashed. The problem is, the bank can't sell them for much less and once we would pay that price, there would be no money left to fix them. Another strange dilemma here? Normally if you bought a new house, you would pay more then for an existing (used) house. Normally. Not here. The old (used) houses are much more expensive because they are in coveted commute locations and in established/good school districts. But the houses are seriously from the 1960s, no joke. And very few have been remodeled or updated in anyway. Why would they? By doing nothing to them whatsoever, they are still worth 1/2 million dollars.
The new homes, in contrast, are much less expensive, new, updated, in questionable or untested school districts with miserable commutes. And we got a wonderful little piece of info from the realtor that there is to be an influx of 25,000 people in 2011 to the area, so any commute now might go up by 15-30 mins anyway. If you live an hour away, that's a lot. This is why we are ready to throw in the towel. We just can't seem to win. Our only option is to stay here, eat Ramen noodles and send J to private school. It's such a waste when we live so close to some of the best school districts in the county. Sob, enough of that.
Here is a peek at the Garden A Kiss on the Chic kit for May:
Hey, I used that Maya road leaf pin. And I only stabbed myself twice! Happy Wednesday to you! Until tomorrow. PS Please don't worry, I won't shave my head. It was a reference to the rehab queen Brittany Spears' infamous meltdown. Although, pounding my vehicle with an umbrella sounds like pretty good stress relief to me right now. :)
