Magnolia Blossoms

Thursday, March 23, 2006

I was so tired this morning after being up night before last and all day yesterday w/ Samuel. He only woke up about 3 times last night, which was great--because, we both needed the sleep! I slept so hard last night that I could barely drag myself out of bed this morning, but I did! The plumber called at 8am to say he'd be here by 9am. This is part of the ongoing legalization of our house. The inspector wants us to fix some of the plumbing. It really does suck to have to rectify someone else's errors. But, whatever--soon, the addition will be legalized, and we'll have our house on the market and move on to another property--a house that hopefully we can stay in for 5 to 10 years.

I've been checking the RMLS daily, and it's encouraging this time around, because we'll actually be able to afford a bigger house in a better neighborhood. Last time we were looking, it was really depressing, because we were looking at beat-up rentals & run-down fixer properties. This time, I can actually tell our realtor--no ranches, split-levels, or rentals! I'm interested mostly in bungalows, four-squares, cape-cods, and cottages. We're looking at close-in neighborhoods; that is, close to the river or to I-5.

The above picture is of a blossom on my magnolia tree. I'll be sad to leave this one behind, but there will always be more plants. My biggest fear is that whoever buys our house won't be a gardner, or worse yet, will bulldoze our garden for other ideas. The first thing new home owners like to do is make changes so they feel like the property is theirs. I just hope the new owners of this property take care of our garden!
