In a post from a few months ago, I discussed my tendency to house stalk. It’s not a regular activity, but every now and then a house comes on the market that I really like and I find myself thinking about it constantly and driving by it any chance I get.
It can be a charming architectural gem or it sits in a neighborhood I particularly like. The urge to stalk comes and goes, but lately it’s reared its ugly head and I’ve found myself driving by a couple of dwellings that are for sale, wishing I could afford them. Now that Hubby is starting a new job in an opposite end of town, I have this strong desire to move to a more centrally located neighborhood, that will be closer to our kids’ future school and where we attend church (the school is part of the parish church). Of course, this practice drives my husband nuts.
Please tell me I’m not the only who does this. Is there cure for this sickness? Do I just need to avoid these spots altogether? I realize we’re in a depressed economy, so the idea of selling and buying a house right now is somewhat crazy. Dear readers, please talk me down from this ledge!
