Indecision

I've started a post about 4 times today and just keep deleting what I wrote. I'm not having a successful writing day.

I've spent the past 3 evenings watching parts of Ever After on Oxygen. My absolute favorite part is the very end of the movie from about the part where Drew is taken in by Mr. LePew to the end. That look of recognition when they see Drew as the princess is just fab. Plus when Jacqueline, the dark haire done who was also in But I'm a Cheerleader, says "No, mother, I'm only here for the food" I always laugh my ass off. Karma's a bitch Angelica. (I know I go from character name to actress name, I don't know all the names of the actresses.)

I made kick ass enchiladas tonight. Every time I make them I do something a little different. Today I added colby and jack shredded cheese along with the regular cheddar I usually use. It was cheesetastic! :) Then I also made chicken stock. It's becoming a thing. Every time I make enchiladas I make stock too. Except I don't use that much stock in regular cooking so I have a bunch of it in the freezer. The littlest gladware tubs are perfect to put it in.

Some time last year, I took a homebuyer class that qualifies me for various state homeowner programs. Off and on since then I've done some generic searches for homes. I keep thinking I want to buy a cute little condo somewhere in my current area. Maybe back towards the central district because I think they'll be less expensive than directly on the hill. But now I'm thinking that if in 4 years I go through with my current plan of (hopefully) being able to start taking in a foster kid or two I would need a bigger place than a 1 bedroom condo. Now, Michelle would say buy now, then use the equity I build up and all that to buy the next place in 3 - 4 years when I need the bigger space. Which I guess I could do, but at the same time I kind of have the opinion that when I buy a place and move in, I don't want to have to move again for a long time. Although I know she's right about the whole buy up concept. Sigh. And although I don't THINK I'm waiting because I'm still single blah blah blah, maybe I am in my subconscious. Eh, it's too much to think about at 11:30 on Monday night when I have to work tomorrow.

Buy now. You're most likely going to move twice in the next four years anyway, so you might as well be building equity. And then I can make you host parties for me. :P

(If you ever let anyone into your home, that is.)

I could host parties for you, except I will probably end up buying something similar in size to what I currently reside in. Not so big.

Putnawa said...

Bigger than mine.

3 or 4 years is a long time. So move now.

You can't hose parties at Joanne's house unless you come over and clean for her. She'll say that she'll do it, but then she won't and even if she does, her idea of clean... well...

Joanne, buy now!
