wild hair or mid-life crisis?


Okay, I did the ultimate "No No"  I went and looked at new houses.   Which means, I come home to my house, (which isn't a bad house,) it just isn't my "Dream" house.  Did I mention that my "Dream"  house comes with a maid and a cook?  I have to say that the new houses are more open and mine is more boxy.   Nothing a good remodel won't fix, right?  unless you are married to the mostest, unhandiest man in the world (which I happen to be.)  I have a lot of "Stuff" and the thought of moving it all is very unappealing.   I should just be thankful I have a roof over my head and just quit my whining, right? Okay, time to take my head out of the clouds,  put my big girl panties on and go sew something.   A girl can dream can't she?

So you might be married to the mostest unhandiest but does he have a wallet? Find that bob the builder (my friend is a bob the builder who is quite good). He could knock down your walls...lmk if you want contact info!!!! How was Market?

We're looking for a house to live in as we're currently renting. And let me tell you, it's frustrating. Be thankful that you DO have a house to call your own and can destroy, err, remodel. Just fork over the money to a contractor to have it done. :-)

I am having the exact same feeling right now. And I have the most unhandy husband too. If moving and remodeling wasn't so dang expensive. I love when I read someone else's blog and it could totally be mine.

I'm with you sister! Husband unhandy. Mine fixes things with on off switches, not boards and nails. When I moved last I doubled my space (last house was pretty small. 1400 sq. ft. with 4 kids.) I'm blessed to be buying my home and we have more space, but I always look at the "bigger better" houses and dream. I guess I need to be thankful I still have my home in this economy! I sew to releave stress. It is my outlet! But I have to admit sometimes it just gives me stress. But I try to keep smiling. :)
