How the Cookie Crumbles

Tuesday, March 30th, 2004

Well if you haven’t guessed by now I didn’t get the house. Someone came in with a significantly higher bid. I guess that is how the cookie crumbles, but I sort of like mine intact with a glass of milk on the side.

Home Sweet New Home????

Sunday, March 28th, 2004

So we went back to look at the house in Eaton Square again. Yes, this is the house that I spoke of in my last blog. It is the perfect house for me. Everything is in beautiful shape. It is in a great location and the only thing it needs for me to move in is a fence and a storm door. There was another woman there trying to get the guy to sign a contract before she would leave the house whic made me a little nervous. However, we did give him a bid and left a deposit to show him our bid is in good faith. I should hear something of his decision tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!

Rumors Aren’t Always Just Rumors

Mom got a phone call last night from the guy that was rumored to be getting ready to sell his house. We are going over there tonight to take a look around. 😀 Fingers crossed that it is everything I have dreamed of and that I get it.

My mother’s friends are travelling from Florida to Conneticut, so my mother had them stay at our house last night. They stayed in my mother’s room, which really must have thrown off the poor dog. My mother said she was pacing around last night and when we got up this morning she wasn’t with me, Mom or Dad. She actually went into my mother’s room and slept in bed with my Mom’s friends. How embarassing! :blush:

I had every intention of sitting and working on homework last night, but it never happened. I did workout and run to pick up some Quiznos, but no homework.

Still no luck on the housing front. There is a rumor that a house will be going up for sale soon in the neighborhood I like, so we are basically just stalking the area for now waiting for the sign to go up. I already have furniture picked out for the living room and bedroom, just need some place to put it.

I have plans to use my bike, finally, in a couple of weeks. 😀 It will no longer be a $600 paperweight!

I used the last of my powder scented deodorant last night, so this morning I had to use some sport scented I had lying around. I feel like I smell like a man. :plain:

I’m hunting…a house?

Monday, March 22nd, 2004

So the house hunt continues. I have decided on a neighborhood I want to live in, just need to try to get a contract in on one of the houses there. I’m already planning out how I am going to decorate in my head and what purchases I need to make. I’m excited about the possibilities. :laugh:

The only problem I seem to running into is that it feels like the people closest to me, that should be supporting me, are not showing any confidence in me. For example, my grandmother says to me yesterday, “How are you going to take care of a house, a dog, and work?” My response to her was, “The same way that all the other 25-year olds in the country do.” What kind of response was she expecting to that kind of question???
