I am tired, tired, tired! In addition to having 2.5 hours of rehearsal every night this weekend, my in-laws were in town and we went and looked at a buttload of houses with them. It's fun to look at houses, but it's also very tiring, especially with my bum foot. Yesterday we looked from 2:30 to 6:30. 4 Hours may not sound like much, but all the houses were in a 5 mile radius. There was very little time spent in the car. All this walking through houses and it looks like they still have their hearts set on the neighborhood across the street from us. It's just so close! But they want a new house that's close to downtown and is on a bus route. This is not easy to find. We went out to Belterra Saturday, which was beautiful, but Tim's Mom decided it was too far from town for Tim's Dad. Despite this fact she still had us look at like 3 houses there.
It's weird because they act like they're absolutely in love with any house they look at, like I think they're about to get out the checkbook and sign an offer, but then we leave and they're eventually like, no. Yesterday we looked at 3 houses in Grand Oaks, the neighborhood across the street, like 5 or 6 houses in Sweetwater Glen which is a newer and cheaper version of the neighborhood across the street, and The Oak at Twin Creeks, which is a gorgeous hill country-like high end neighborhood on South First off of Slaughter. Once again, Tim's mom acted like it was absolutely gorgeous, we went through 3 or 4 houses, and then it turns out nope, Grand Oaks is still the favorite. I suggested scores of neighborhoods for them, and especially since they kept saying they wanted a view, I thought The Oak would be perfect. It's the closest you can get to the hill country close in. But I think "a view" to them just means some trees because that's all Grand Oaks has to offer and that's their favorite. It's a lot to get used to, having your in-laws live in town with you, and having them right across the street is going to make it that much more difficult. But I don't feel like I can say no, since they just are so completely head over heels in love with it, so much so they won't even consider anywhere else. Sigh.
Ah, and it's Monday, God, I hate Monday, Stella is being just awful today!
