It's a lovely older home in a nice part of town - the kind of revitalized older community where people walk in the evenings and have block parties. And it's one level - no stairs! I'll have to increase my weekly exercise when I no longer walk up and down stairs 30 times a day.
Of course, the reason we're doing all this is that they have a great school system for autistic kiddos. I've checked out this school every way I know how, and it seems solid.
On the downside, one bedroom is the color of guacamole, another a nice purply-pink - and the master bedroom is too small to contain our furniture. We need to blow out the back wall and add some square feet, and a proper bathroom. Adults in the early 50s must have been very small, had no clothes, and spent little time in the bathroom.
Yep, we're doing lots of little projects around the (current) house while trying to find a contractor. I just had my kiddo and two neighborhood friends play a game I invented - they each got a different color of post-it tags. I sent them around the house to hunt for smudges on walls, scratches on floors, and any other problems. It was a contest. They all got brownies, but the winner got a dollar. As a result, my house looks like we've had a confetti party! And the kids have concluded, once again, that I am the craziest mom in the neighborhood.
Ah, well. Back to touching up paint. I'll check back in!
