Home?

I love getting to see new places. One of Steve and my favourite past times is going to open houses. Something we haven’t enjoyed too much since the baby came along and Steve going to Australia and such. I also love peaking into people’s windows. Now don’t go thinking I’m a peeping Tome or something like that. I just like looking into windows, from the streets, to see how places are decorated or if you can see how the place is laid out. I have no interest in whoever may or may not be inside. I think that’s why I like going to open houses so much. You can get so many decorating ideas from other people. I also like going through and coming up with my own ideas for the spaces we see.
Steve and I are currently looking for a place for the three of us to call home. Even though we would prefer a house, we’re looking at apartments too. So far all we’ve see have been big ol’ pieces of crap. Well, one was nice. It was a large two bedroom apartment. Lots of storage areas, good size bedrooms, skylights in the bedrooms (that’s what windows on the ceiling is called, right? I’m not too sure and too lazy to look it up right now), a big bathroom with lots of cupboards and two closets, a newer kitchen that was beautiful, a good size living room with a fireplace and a balcony. Sounds good, huh? Here’s the kicker…It’s downtown, steep stairs, over Crappy Joe’s and out looking a parking lot.
I’m getting really, really tired of looking for a place already. I thought a small town would make it easier to find a place, but I think I was wrong.
Fingers are crossed we’ll be able to find something soon.
Until next time…
