Itching to Buy

I've got the itch and I've got it bad. I have my eyes on a house. It's a great house. I've mentally moved in. But the problem is that we won't be ready to buy until March 2012.

I keep telling myself, 10 months will go by quickly. But as I sit here listening to the 18 wheeler idling outside my window and realize that the fruit packing warehouse we moved next to is now in full swing and will probably be hopping nearly 24 hours a day from now until September, with way too many 18 wheelers to count sitting, literally 7 feet from my window, 10 months might just feel like an eternity.

So until then, I'm trying not to obsess about "The" house. But I'll share some designs that would work great in "The" house that I'm not obsessing over.

Like this kitchen:

Or this kitchen with that great floor!

And this guest room. Perfect for my mother-in-law:

This for the entry...

with this blue door.

And raised garden beds for the one acre lot:

And can't forget the pool. Because no one acre lot in Washington's wine country is complete without an inground pool.

So as these 18 wheelers idle outside my window, I will not obsess about "The" house and just enjoy the fact that my kids are with 6 other kids on the block, screaming, playing in the water and making their own block party. That makes this temporary stay worthwhile.
