Did y'all even know we're moving? I can't remember if I made an "official" announcement.
Well, consider this it.
I've been neglecting the blog lately, because moving has consumed most of my thoughts lately. If you know me well, you know I'm NOT a happy mover. I don't mind leaving one area and arriving at another. There's just something about boxes and disorder....and...boxes....and moving men....and boxes....and unpacking....that just really gives me hives.
So, we're currently looking for houses in the area where we are being stationed. I'm just flabbergasted by the pockets of ghetto and not-ghetto SO close to one another. It's a different layout here than I'm used to. The property value is very different here, too. A 2200 square foot house in North Carolina where we bought a house, goes for $1,200 a month....here, you can only get about 1,200 square feet for that price...and it's in a crappy neighborhood with no yard.
Laura likes a house about 20 minutes from the house I like. Can you tell just how different the areas are....
Here is the house Laura likes...
The front room - not sure what it's called, because there is another room the same size at the back of the house - so, maybe this is the "formal living room?"
Looking on, into the kitchen/dining room
Take a look at the other GEMS we looked at today.
This was the back yard of one of the houses.
And this was our backyard in North Carolina - see where I'm having some problems!?
Oh, and just for giggles.....check out this absolutely GORGEOUS "master" bath. Who was the genius who designed THAT!?
Check in later - we've got two more days of this awesome house
