Our House.. In The Middle of the Street

My skills in deferred gratification have become a little lax lately when it comes to issues like buying a house. I'll pass by a house for sale and have to immediately look it up online. Then I drool over the online listing and obsessively drive by the house when out on errands. Matt and I are at a point right now where we may have the 10% down-payment needed on one particular 2-story, 5 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, corner lot house. The issue is that we've never seen the house from the inside. For all we know, the furnace is ancient (we suspect old-style radiator heat from pictures), the roof leaks, the water tank is full of sediment, the foundation is shaky, and the kitchen is leftover from the 1930s. I guess the trick is, suspect the worst and maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
