Bad news.. sort of... is that I am not moving. My house is only appraised at $340,000. I would have needed at least $350,000 for it. Fucking economy. Oh well. I have some pretty rocking plans for finishing off/upgrading this place that will build more equity. I want to replace the counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom, they don't seem to match and I've never liked them. I need to tear the carpet out of the upstairs hallway and install the same lino that's already in the house. I want to build a built-in desk with columns downstairs and also a built in tv entertainment unit. Finally, finish off the trim and install 2 closet doors. So I'll use my new supervisor money to save up for home renos, do all of that and maybe after that I'll have my house up in the price range I'd like it to be. And maybe there will be another perfect house to buy. I was thinking that maybe close isn't the only option. I could move to a neighborhood where he has to take the bus, then I wouldn't have certain "drop off and pick up" issues that I'm faced with now. Hmm. Food for thought.
Speaking of food, my pizza just arrived and the guys are going crazy with hunger. Gotta go.
