We don't own a house. We never have. We'd like to. :)
Right now, we're renting a condo. It's a very nice condo, and frankly, it's ridiculously inexpensive for the town we live in. However, I pretty much filled the place when I lived here by myself. Now that Shawn has moved in, we're overflowing. I find myself watching these shows on HGTV and fantasizing about moving. Sometime relatively soon, we'll be making some major decisions. We may end up moving to the Seattle area. I have to admit...just in case, I've started looking online at places to rent. If we stay in Colorado, we'll probably be moving "down the hill" to make for an easier commute for Shawn. Just in case, I've started looking online at places to buy.
I'm excited at the prospect of moving somewhere soon that will be "our" place! In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through my friends. A couple of the Knotties have recently bought and moved into new homes. I love looking at their pictures. Another Knottie is moving to Boston soon, and I'm looking forward to seeing her pictures. I just have to tell myself that it'll be our turn soon!
