House Update

So I’ve given a ton of thought to the house we looked at earlier this week, which I wrote about in this post

I love so much about that house.  And I’m so very frustrated with the real estate choices here.  But ultimately, I know that wasn’t the right house for us,the bedrooms were set up too strangely.  And not the best time to throw moving into the mix of everything going on in our lives.  I’m sad though.  And I feel like I keep wasting our Realtor’s time, as he has shown us several houses, and I find something wrong with every single one.  I would like to build again.  Wait.  No, building was a pain in the butt, but I feel like it’s the only way we will find a home here that would fit our needs and wants for an extended period of time.  That brings another issue though, there are so few lots available here…  It’s always something, right??

I’ve also given a lot of thought to why I want to move…  I fully realize that no house makes a happy life or happy family.  Am I just bored with my life, with no longer having a career?  Of having lost touch with so many friends?  Being further from family?  Granted, I hate so much about this house, mostly because the layout is inconvenient.  So there is that.  But otherwise, there isn’t really anything technically wrong with this house.  We have purchased some furniture, but haven’t really gone all out on decorating, mostly because we never planned to be here long.   Heck, we don’t even have any landscaping except sod and rocks!  The house doesn’t really feel like a home though if it’s not fully decorated, not to me anyway.  And since I spend so much of my time here, well, maybe I just need to focus on making this place more our home for now.  I’m not really sure how to do that though, without wasting money on items that wouldn’t work in a new home down the road.  Any suggestions?
