Well, the pretty house below just didn't work out. We had it inspected, and it leaked from top to bottom...literally. The top roof tiles were shot down to the below grade cement in the basement and the pipes had holes. It was a mess. The boiler worked for 1 minute, made a big bang and shut off. The windows are summer windows and storm windows...in a house. Even the front door was warped and leaking. Did I mention it didn't have a fridge? Not even a place for one. The fridge would have to go out in the mud room. Just too much for us to do right now with a almost3yearold and a 3 month old baby.
So now we are back to square one. looking. looking....
do we rent? is that the smart move? do we buy so we aren't paying some one else's mortgage? i dunno. its all so expensive and it just seems like going backwards to live in an apartment.
im a mess, my house is a mess, my kids are a bit of a mess. sigh.
