House Hunting

Okay, I don't want to look at any more houses until we've gotten ready to scream and leap. There was this nice house, with a lovely kitchen, and a decadent bathroom, and lots of rooms... and now someone else gets it.

I don't need any more Houses that Got Away, especially I tend to remember things nicer than they actually were (I think this is related to the reason anyone has more than one kid). The Big House on Summer Street has magnified to mansion-size in my retrospective imagination.

Still, it was a good proof of concept, that there are reasonable sized single-family houses, and not just condos and two-and-three-families.
