Loving my home
To be fair, I look at the real estate listings the way I look at home decorating blogs—fun for ideas, fun to daydream about future possibilities (I’d like a porch one day. And an eat-in kitchen would be nice!). Before this house, we moved at least once a year, and I’ve combated any antsiness by rearranging a room every few months.
The house needs work—work that we’re not sure we’ll ever get to. (In fact, the first time we toured this house, we both said, “no” right away.) Both bathrooms could stand to be gutted. frankly. I am currently typing from my lovely office/library under a fluorescent light (ew) and a drop ceiling (double ew). Our kitchen floors are scuffed linoleum and yes, I dream of an eat-in kitchen. Our house is at a corner by a fairly busy street and, more often than not, I fall asleep to road noise. It's a split-level. I always considered split-levels my least favorite style of home.
