Spring is here and the days while longer are going fast. Mid-week I went up to Aitkin for a night, and while it rained all day, in the evening it was nice enough to go for a quick walk before my friend chat that evening. I love the road I grew up on and it was nice to enjoy the weather minus mosquitos and sweat.
I didn’t have enough time in town to actually meet up with any friends, but I think I might start doing more quick visits as I’m not sure how many up north weekends I will have this summer. It seems like weekends are quickly filling up as people feel more confident in planning weddings and other events. Plus, we have the unknown of Jeff’s house search.
We have a good routine for Saturday mornings right now. Wake up, start touring houses at 8 am, once those are done, eat brunch. Then start tackling any chores. Then clean up about 3:30 pm, so that we can go to church which starts at 5. At 6 we are home to start making dinner, find something enjoyable to watch, and I managed to be in bed before 10 both Friday and Saturday night. It means I don’t sleep in on Saturday or Sunday morning, but at least I am getting good hard sleep.
I chose “quick” as the word for this week because my walk was quick, just 20 minutes total as I had my girls call to get on. And the visit to Aitkin was quick, less than 24 hours. And also because I know while this house search feels long and hard and not fun, it will most likely be over quickly. This weekend Jeff has offers in for two different houses. The houses happen to be in the same town, but thankfully one is deciding before the other, so on the off chance that the first one accepts, Jeff could rescind the 2nd offer. But if the first one accepts a different offer, at least the weekend wasn’t wasted on only one chance, and he has the second offer as another option.
What is quick for you these days?
How sick are you of house tales? Could you make a quick decision on buying a home?
