I AM NOT SO SURE ABOUT THIS ADULT-THING

Sometimes being an adult is a little less than desirable (or am I the only one that feels that way?!). I remember the days when the biggest stress in my life was what I wanted to wear to school the next day or what brand of cereal I wanted to have that morning (I seriously worried about that!). Now I have to worry about budgets and bills, insurance and investing, keeping a house clean and tidy and folding endless loads of laundry!! How and when did life get to be so complicated?!

These days Geoff and I have been complicated our lives with this………

Look familiar to anyone?! If you have ever purchased a home I am sure you are more familiar with it than you ever wanted to be, ever!! We are on the hunt for a new casa (actually our first) for our ever-growing family.

It is a very exciting time for The Stevens clan, but also overwhelming. There are so many variables to think about and consider when purchasing a house, and children complicate the mix quite a bit more… i.e. number of bedrooms, enough space for them to play/destroy, oh and the all important school district considerations!! And the market we are looking in complicates itself enough when homes sign under contract with being on the market for a little over 12 hours! Yes, that happened today! Found a great house late afternoon yesterday, booked a showing for 9:30 am today, received a text from realtor at 7 am the house had an offer, received another text from realtor at 9 am the showing was off because the house was now under contract. Totally crazy!! That is the market we are looking in – sound fun?! It is not!

So the search continues… we seem to be viewing homes daily but we haven’t found “the one” yet. I am hoping when we do we will just know. Kind of like what “they” say when you find your spouse… you will just know! [Does that really happen?!]

Here is to being an adult!! Some things I love (i.e. being married, having babes) but other things are not on my ‘top ten’ list at this very moment (i.e. purchasing a home).

Wish us luck!! Obviously updates will be posted here when progress is made (hopefully sooner than later).

  1. Good luck with your search! It can be stressful but whichever house is meant for you it will be there waiting. What part of town are you looking at?
