Okay, one thing I do that is probably not healthy, but that I find entertaining is do house searches on the internet. I’ve posted before that I’m not very happy with my house.
I’ve been watching a house for a year. It’s gone down in price from 129,000 to 99,900. It’s got over 3,000 sq feet and 6 bedrooms, 3 baths. It has no garage or basement, but it’s 2 1/2 acres adjacent to a state forest. It’s 45 minutes from our current location, so it would add time–30 min to 45 depending on where he is working that day-- on my dh’s commute. It’s a double that would have to be fixed up. But, I live in a fixer upper, so it wouldn’t be a step down for us. It is close to a very good retreat center and a big university, so there would be lots of resources for our homeschooling.
Anyway, my dh has been like a mountain when it comes to moving–he won’t budge. But, when I showed him that the house had dropped another 10,000, he said, “do you want to go see it?”
I was dumbfounded. I asked him hopefully, “Well, what would be the point in that?”
He shrugged and said, “None, I guess.”
What does that mean? Should I make an appointment to see it, or what?
Shouldn’t I be able to understand him after 16 years? sigh.
