House Hunting

Because my life isn't crazy enough, I have decided to throw my hat into this insane housing market.

And you know what that means? Mortgage pre-qualification which is always sure to spurn some hate. (From my favorite song "This Is Why I'm Hot" by MIMS ... "N-word's start to hate, rearrange they face ...")

But, it is worth it and here's why. I am paying in rent what could be a mortgage and, besides, I am a big boy and I need to own some sort of home. So since property and my horsey feifdom aren't realities in the present, I'm looking at garden homes.

Extreme, huh? I always tell people I love to bush hog but I hate to mow a lawn. So having a little slice of a home with a bat cave single car garage for Banzai and two bedrooms/two baths, isn't a bad solution for a confirmed bachelor like myself.

It's exciting. The creative part of me makes it difficult to shop for a home because I tend to see potential in everything. I can see past white walls and a lighthouse collection on the bar. Do I see bamboo floors and glass tiles? Yes. Yes I do. If I'm going to have a man cave then I want it to look like my Pilates studio. Is that so wrong?
