How not to fall in love with a house

How not to fall in love with a house
  • Don't meet the neighbors.
  • Don't measure anything. 
  • Don't think about exactly how things will best fit.
  • Don't like the closets.
  • Don't think about how you'll clean it.
  • Don't think about how lovely the tree in the front yard will smell in spring.
  • Don't notice all the places you could walk to (book store, another book store, library, Panera, Home Depot, park, every restaurant I ever go to).
  • Don't notice how quiet it is. 
  • Don't notice the pond and the turtles and the ducks.
  • Don't think about what life will be like when you live there and not where you live right now.
  • Just don't.


  1. Uh-oh... did you see a really nice one?

    (Cue music) There's a place for us, somewhere a place for us...

  2. Nope. :) Just catching up from May posts that didn't happen because of work deadlines . . .
