Dude, I Think We Just Bought a House

July 19, 2011

I think we just bought a house.

That costs a lot of money (well, a lot to us).

There might be spiders in the garage.

There might be wall to wall turquoise carpet.

There might be a stained-glass pirate ship feature.  And galley lights.

There might be a diner booth built into the kitchen.

There might be wood paneling.  Lots of it.

There also might be a nice green yard to play in.

With roses planted along the fence.  And room for a small garden.

There might be the cutest little bathtub.

And room to create a new kitchen, sans the booth.

There might be a fireplace and mantle for vases and artwork and stockings for Santa.

But first we have to get through the inspection.

Keep your fingers crossed…

    It can’t cost too much if it comes with Pirate accesories. AND turquoise carpet? It’s like sailing the seven seas! Jealous.

    Now, that’s what you’d think, but this is LA we’re talkin’ about. Turns out, our money can only get us houses with pirate ships.

    Ya! So far so good! There are some things that need repair/replacement, and hopefully Mr. Seller will agree, but I don’t thing the roof is going to cave in. Not yet. 🙂
