current news here =)

We're moving again! UGH! I swear we are gypsies LOL! It's really not so bad other than the fact that all of us are pack rats so there's lots of stuff to move. With Darkside not being able to drive it makes things even more difficult since I can't drive his !@#%&*@ truck!

But the new house is on a nice quiet street though which will be nice after being on this busy street. Although it's no further away from the train tracks -- don't think that's possible here in mid-US LOL! Plus the house is soooo nice! It's tiny compared to this house but we'll make it work, we usually do =) Smaller house just means less room to heat/cool or clean!

The only things I can see that we have to do before moving in are minor clean up in the yard, quick wipe down of the everything, vacuum, and paint! No major fixes as far as we can tell! Isn't that nice!

Although for us to live there long term there are some things we'll need to do --- you know to customize it for us =)  We'll need to fix the shed outside -- possible new roof for it. Then we'll need to fix up the basement for the kids -- this is where their bedrooms will be. New screens for the windows -- there aren't any? Possible new window in kitchen. Possibly run a electric line for dryer and stove. Landscaping GALORE! Including till and plant a garden. Possibly a roof for the back deck. Fix the wooden fence.

Immediately we are going to look into how much it will be for us to put an addition onto this house. Although we will have to wait till next year to do something so large, we want to know what the cost will be. Especially if we like living there -- it will definitely be necessary! As I said it's a small house, I would guess about 600 square feet excluding the basement. I would estimate the basement is about 230 square feet of usable bedroom space. I would guess that's large enough for 2 medium size bedrooms. So where we have about 1800 sq. ft. at this house including the basement, we'll only have about 900-1000 sq. ft. at the new house with the basement.

This house looks so nice though inside and out with a quiet neighborhood so I think it's more worth it. It's the perfect size for what I want - not Darkside, but ME - although it's situated all screwy. Because the little blue house was smaller than this house but the little blue house had 2 bedrooms -- this one doesn't have even 1 bedroom!

Ahhhhh.......... got your attention now, eh? LOL! NO BEDROOMS! Yep, I said it! Don't ask me what these people was thinking when they designed the inside of this house. It's perfectly laid out, great size rooms but then BAM! forgot to put in bedrooms. Oh well we'll re-arrange some things and get one in there =)

I am so excited!! Going over today to paint hopefully =)
