2 hours of spin class this morning, worked my tail off. This afternoon we all took a break from packing and went to some open houses- saw a small but well kept house that I really liked except when we left a crazy neighbor shouted from across the street that the house was overpriced and we shouldn't get it.
Then we saw a two family that had a two BR apartment that we could rent out on the first floor, with 1 BR, two living rooms, kitchen, laundry on the second floor and another BR and attic space on the third floor. I really loved the idea of having the rental, but there was way too much work left to be done; the backyard was a mess, staircases lacked railings, the basement was completely unfinished and would need some work to be useable- no way. Finally, we saw a cute 3 BR condo in a gated community- I loved the small size, and the indoor pool/gym on the grounds, but it didn't seem to practical for us- no backyard, even a small one, for the dogs. I'd never really thought about a townhouse or condo before today, but It's really growing on me. There are bigger ones around, 3 BR with small backyard. I just have to find them. I think Philip prefers a single-family house, but after the way he cared for this place- or rather, did not care for this place
- I don't want a big lawn if he won't take care of it.
