showings, our house is finally sold. The last two showings were the most difficult of all. As you know our cat Maddie gets car sick and has to be fed cat Valium prior to being put in her carrier. Last Friday she spit out her pill at the last minute and there was no time to try giving her another. After loading her, Rose was loaded and cried and whined the entire time. Then Charlie boarded and shed and slobbered all over everything. The two kids got in and my mother was riding shot gun. We drove to McDonald’s for shakes. Midway through the trip Maddie pissed all over her carrier making the car smell undesirable at best. My mother had to think we were completely crazy.
The next showing was just as bad; a pissing, puking, pooping cat,
a crying, whining cat, a slobbering, shedding dog and a boy with a bucket! Yes, poor Will was sick with strep throat but he sucked it up and took one for the team. We drove to McDonalds again except it was only 9:00am so we didn’t do shakes but I did bend the rules and let him have some pop for breakfast! He deserved it.
So now the next part of the journey will be finding a new house
to live in. Looking online is fun but you always want to see what’s beyond the pictures. I have a few on my list to look at but there are some that I won’t even consider just because of the street names or towns.
For example: Even though there are nice houses in Bagdad, KY I
don’t want to live there. Imagine telling people you live in Bagdad…….Kentucky and then getting all the questions and comments. But unfortunately I have fallen in love with a house in Lebanon, KY so I might just have to deal with it. This house also has a creek in the backyard and 1.5 acres. The creek is called Crooked Creek, how fitting is that?!
We saw another house we liked on Waddy Road in Waddy, KY. There
is just something about the word “Waddy” that makes me not want to live there. I also will not be living on Regret Road. I always think of street names as if I were writing a book:
“And as I approached Regret Road, I wished I had never purchased
that shitty house.”
Now Rising Sun Road would be an all right name I guess.
“And as the sun rose over Rising Sun my son awoke from his
And I won’t be living at Mockingbird Valley Road, Louisville
Kentucky. That’s 39 letters vs. the 24 letters I currently have to write, it’s
way too long for an address. I don’t want to have to write that over and over. It makes my hand hurt just thinking about it.
And I will never live on Payne Street even if it’s spelled differently.
“The pain I endured on Payne Street was too much of a pain to
I’ll keep you posted on my house hunting adventures. Hopefully we
find Happiness Lane or an Easy Street.
Take care friends!
Most of the houses we are looking at are in Bullitt County. Yeah,
sounds like bullet which is a pretty cool sounding redneck county; however it is
named after a person and not misspelled. I will feel obligated to explain that
every time I have to spell it out for someone.
