So where will we live if we sell our house? We just put a bid on a house yesterday that's contingent upon selling our house. It has 9 acres for the sheep, but it is not exactly the white farmhouse/red barn kinda place. First of all, the house is on a hill, surrounded by pine trees and has a pond in the back. And the house was built in 1968...so you can pretty much guess what it looks like. But it has kind of a fun retro vibe to it. Joey and I were both standing on the back patio looking down at the "flower beds" that were just full of those black lava rocks and I said, "this place reminds me of my Grandma's house," just as he was saying, "this place reminds me of my Yia Yia's house." So maybe we have sentimental feelings about the 60's accents. It needs some work, but it is structurally sound and has nice wood floors and 2 fireplaces, a screened porch, and a pool! Oh, and for some reason, there is a pass-through cabinet that connects the kitchen with the bathroom. So basically you could stand in the kitchen and shake hands with someone sitting on the toilet. Or serve them food??? So maybe this could be the next Parrillo house? We'll see, nothing is for-sure yet, but we are starting to imagine ourselves floating in the pool and counting the sheep on the hillside and watching the ducks swim around the pond. Plus, who could resist the idea of having your own ice skating pond in the winter?!
