There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path @ 08:02 pm

Didn't get to bed until about 3:30am last night since I had to work so late. In turn I slept in until about noon. That was nice, but probably still not enough. I got woken up a couple times. It will be really nice NOT to be woken up by someone when I have my own house.

My mom came down and handed me a section of the paper that had some open houses in the Oregon City area. I didn't want to go, but it was something to do. We ended up driving up to this house (pics) and touring it. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1450 sq feet. This house is really gorgeous. It's in a decent location too. This house is by far #1 on my list right now. It's amazing... I'm gonna look around a little more, but if I don't find something in the next couple of weeks I'll probably put in a bid. On the way home I looked at a second house (pics), which was even bigger, 2000 sq ft. But it wasn't finished as well and was laid out very funky. Both were in the $140k price range which is what I can afford. Good to see some other houses though. They both made the one I looked at the other day, pretty crappy. Especially for the price.

Then Vicki and Larry came over for dinner and the rocket launch. So we toiled around for a while, and then went down to Clackamas park for a quick rocket launch. The realtor called back (I wanted to schedule a second look at this house) and I took my dad and Larry up to see it. Larry is an architect so I wanted him to look at it, and see what he thought of it structurally. They weren't as enamored with the house as I was, which kinda sucked. But my mom said that it really doesn't matter because it's my decision. Which really made me think that maybe I'm putting too much emphasis on what they think. They didn't dislike the house, just the layout, which I liked. So screw them :)

So we had dinner, and we're probably gonna go launch some more rockets after dinner. I bought a battery charger for the batteries for my camera since I've looked all over and couldn't find mine. It sucked not being able to use my camera more, but now I have a charger. It should have been $18, but it rang up as $20. So I told the 17 year old cashier that and he didn't even blink and eye. Just immediately changed it without even checking. I told him I should've said it was $5. So I should have pictures of the rocket launch later too. I love my digital camera.

i like the third house. from the pictures, it looks like it has a oot of good light. although i didn't get to see the bathroom or the kitchen, and the would have to be a crucial part of my decision if i wanted to buy a house...anyway, the front of the house is very adorable, too. it looks really homey and confortable.

The third house looks good from the outside, and it's in a good area, but the inside was pretty small. The bedrooms were pretty tiny, and it had a low ceiling in the basement and loft.

The garage thing does kinda suck, but I don't know if it's that big of a deal to me. I have to think about it.
