deja vu all over again

9 04 2009

so – again – another unexpected day off from work.  and this one really, truly was unexpected.  i thought i had a couple massages previously booked, but oh well, apparently i don’t anymore. 

and so, what does a reasonable, level-headed gal do when she’s not earning any money?  she puts an offer in on a non-level house with 2 stoves and no fridge in the kitchen (there is a fridge in the basement.  convenient.)   yup, re-looked at a house today, and i dunno, the sun was shining, the outdoor patio was warm and cozy, the floors didn’t seem as slanty and uneven to me.  i fell in love with it. out of all the zillion houses i’ve looked at, this one is the cleanest and nicest smelling.  and the ‘hood is definitely the safest and nicest.  i’d almost venture to say i’m not worthy of the ‘hood , but OF COURSE i’m worthy of the ‘hood.  i’ll bring a je ne sais quoi to this side of town.  this house is the classic scenario of “worst house in the best neighborhood.”  and i’m sure the neighbors are shakin’ in their boots.

here’s a preview of the house i don’t own yet.  obviously i will need a sickle.  and a rake.  i give you – the backyard:

part of the backyard.  many, many levels.  with many, many weeds.

view from the patio of the greenhouse.  ok, that just makes me laugh.  my 5 plants will be so excited.  a room of their own!!!

here’s that other thing that makes me laugh.  the kitchen with 2 stoves.  i can heat up 8 varieties of soup ALL AT ONCE, PEOPLE. impressed?

and floors in the living room (ok, they’re not perfect, but they’re LOADED with charm:)

my camera battery died shortly thereafter.   

one last pic of the harry potter closet beneath the stairway (i have no idea what that means since i haven’t read any harry potter books, but my real estate agent pointed out this fact, so that’s what i’m calling it, the harry potter closet.)

despite my new found love for this quirky, crooked house, the offer i put in was relatively low – chances are it won’t be mine.  my only hope is another person or family won’t be thrilled with this house’s seeming drawbacks.  like, zero front yard.  the house literally sits right on the road.  but it’s not on a highway, so who cares?  no front yard means no mowing.  and the garage (2-car, btw) is on a whole ‘nuther street (up all the many, many, MANY levels of the backyard.)  i choose to look at this as a great quad and butt workout.  this house appeals to me ‘cuz it’s so different.  who wants a garage right by your house?  who wants a fridge in the kitchen?  that’s so OBVIOUS.  am i right?  huh?  huh?  am i?
