You know how when you have a handful of kids and people say, “Hey, when you have so many, what’s two more!?!?” as though it’s no big deal…well let me tell you, going from six to eight IS a big deal, it’s just like one would imagine it to be having eight children!
I just looked at my blog and noticed that I have talked about not much more than the house for the last few weeks, yet that is what I came here to talk about again. Ugh. The house. Here are a few interior pics.
Gary and I both really want the house. When I walk up the stairs, I feel like it is my house. My home. But! But. But. But.
The expenses will at least double compared to what we expend now. Our house now is done (with the exception of the furnace, stairway, and the new room). We have done the kitchen, two bathrooms, actually, all the rooms. The yard is all fenced and perfect for kids, the windows are new, as will the roof be come next week. I know that homeowners generally can’t see any defects in the house they love, but really, our house is in move in condition. The new house has nothing and needs everything. But…if we can pull this off, in 5 or so years (if the stress hasn’t killed us before hand!) we will have everything we have now, only with 2 ½ times the space (and let us not forget 2 ½ times the expenses!) Sigh.
So to recap, current house, perfect, but on the small side and located across from Housing Authority house. New house, BIG.
