Blame the yard

Well, we didn’t get the house.  I’m not losing any sleep over it.  We are putting an offer in on another one tomorrow.  This particluar one, we actually saw a few weeks ago, but were too enthralled with the first one to notice this one for what it really was. 

So anyway, the house we are offering on has a lot of potential.  The key word there is potential.  It’s very small, no basement, and it needs some work.  On the other hand, it sits on over an acre, is very charming, and it’s a brick ranch.  The location probably couldn’t get any better.  So, once again, cross your fingers!

In other news, Derek passed the state exam, so he is now a licensed EMT.  Woo-Hoo!!  He hopes to work one day a week somewhere while he goes through the rest of the program to become a Paramedic.  He did his clinicals through a local ambulance company, and they told him to apply there once he was licensed.  So, that’s the plan!

    I don’t know if I would even like a house that didn’t need work. What would you do on the weekends? Sit around and enjoy your completely finished house? Congrats on passing the exam too.
