We've started house hunting. It's pretty exciting for me. I've been daydreaming about having a house for years and finally we're in a position to make it happen. So far it's been a study in finding out what I don't like: split levels, oil heating, ceilings too low for my husband to enter a room without getting a concussion...but I'm enjoying getting to see so many different homes. I've gotten to check out places built 400 years ago and ones that have been renovated to such extremes it's hard to believe they originally looked like our rental. It's also been a great way for me to get to know the towns around here. Now I just need to finish learning about mortgages!
