We still have a dream of owning a house, though. Lately we've been looking at real estate listings. It's today's version of when we used to look at mobile homes.
We really only have a few nonnegotiables ..
We have to have a garage and basement. These are mostly for Mike although I would like a basement for tornado sirens. The rooms would have to be large enough to fit our furniture. We want central air conditioning. A large, fenced yard is a must, too. Low payments and taxes. Close to Mike's job. (Ok, maybe more than a few nonnegotiables.)
Is there a perfect home for us out there somewhere? Maybe. It really doesn't matter right now because we can't buy one. But it IS fun to daydream, though.
