May not be the smartest thing,

but I woke up this morning feeling much better so decided to workout. Saturday is weights so I figured it wouldn't kill me too much. And it didn't. I actually feel pretty good. This cold or whatever appears to be staying in my head, specifically my sinuses and that I can live with. I did get lots of rest yesterday and probably will today also, so that's a good thing.

I'm thinking of driving around and looking at some neighborhoods this afternoon. While I know most of the neighborhoods around here, I've never looked at them with an eye for living there. There are certain criteria I have. The first and foremost being no drug dealers or murderers. That's really important to me. There are also a couple of townhouse complexes I want to check out. I'm kind of caught. I have an idea of what I want to spend (because I have an idea of what I want to pay each month) which actually may be a little less we will qualify for, but I want to feel comfortable in this whole thing. Anyway, looking around I can get a good sized townhouse for actually less than I want to spend, or I can get a tiny house. And when I say tiny, I'm talking tiny, like 600 sf. Now the good part about the house is that it comes with land and we could expand in the future. Also, it's only the 2 of us and the animals, we really don't need a lot of living area. On the other hand, the townhouses relieve some of the ownership/responsibility issues I have since they take care of much of the maintenance. And we've been living in less than 1000sf for 14 years now, the thought of having 4 bedrooms and 1500 sf just gets me all kinds of excited. Actually having more than 1 bathroom would be a thrill I don't know my heart can take. Also, all the townhouses I'm interested in have pools. Now they may be smaller pools but you have no idea how much it appeals to me to have a pool within walking distance. Oh, decisions, decisions. Tomorrow afternoon is open house day. I'm definitely going around to some to check them out.

For someone who really had nothing to say I certainly rambled on for a while. I'm in a mood where I just feel like writing. I get like this once in a while and can just ramble on for days. But I won't. I'll stop here and go rest for a while. Hubby should be home from work in a couple of hours so I'll lie down and read until then.

Okay, I'm stopping now.

It sounds like your criteria is right on. It should be fun looking! Good job on working the weights in.
