At least we are feeling it VERY much right now.
I guess i wasn't expecting what being a "grown up" was about..
between finding the "Mr. Right", getting into a good college
learning how to live, and create my own standards
and reaching for those accomplishments.
That's where we are today, right here..
looking for the next BIG accomplishment..
I guess the big ones of finding true love
finding a job
attempting to support ourselves
battling medical issues and failures
are all past us or currently with us..
dang medical issues..
Here we are, seriously considering a HOUSE.
Yes people, not the game you play with a basketball
with an attempt to not suck to bad as a sport
but an actual,
type of House.
We have thought long and hopefully hard enough,
we have brought out family in to take a look
we have thought about looking more
and not liking what we are seeing,
trying to comprehend what expenses we might have
something happens... but here it is
we are writing the list of items we need to include on our
FIRST OFFER for a HOUSE.
If only they gave you manuals to buy your first
BIG Girl House.. you know
those pink and purple Barbie houses..
yes, if in fact i had that earlier i might have prepared myself for
But alas, here we are.
We never imagined how drained we'd be, working hard and long, trying to pin point
this whole house thing, and feeling
100% happy with our
Please Pray, Think, Cross your Fingers,
Hope and Wish that this is
the start of a wonderful adventure in our life
and that we are picked to love this home and to make it our own
with sweat, love, tears, maybe some screams and of course
a little swearing(lets hope not, but seriously... i'm being realistic)
that this can be THE HOME for us
at this stage in our life.
