Exhaustified!!
We went "house hunting" today with my parents, and I am "exhaustified"! I actually love looking at other people's houses. The first one we looked at was so cute. Eveything was decorated just the way I like it, and it was so neat and clean. And she had two little boys!! I was impressed.

The next two were new homes, so unfurnished. They were nice too. However, by the third, fourth and fifith they were all beginning to run together in my mind. I couldn't remember which had what layout and which had the nice backyard and which had no ceiling fans......

I fear I have a rather short attention span. I was ready to go home after that. I'm the same way about shopping. I just want to go into the store, find the exact thing I had in mind, pay for it and get out of there! My husband, on the other hand, has endless patience for this sort of thing. He could look at houses or shop for hours. When we go Christmas shopping, I have to set a time limit so I don't fall down right in the middle of the mall!

Therefore, since my little brain has been sorely over-taxed today this is a very short and silly post. I just want to keep in touch with all of you. And after all, I was sure you'd want to know how my day went :-)

I appreciate all of you so much. It's like calling a good friend and sharing a bit of our lives. I would hate to miss out on it. (I think that's what makes keeping it in balance so difficult, but I'm doing better.)

Blessings,
Linda

I'm with you on the shopping thing. The other thing that exhaustifies me is car shopping. I hate it! But I had to go this last time because the time before my husband bought one in a color that I never liked. Isn't that so petty?? But it was just too "old people" for me. Even though I am one, almost.

Where did you live before that was cold? We rarely have enough snow to complain about. But some years we do. We like it to stay up in the mountains as much as possible!

#2 comment - who ever heard of ANYONE being gay in those days! I'd like to go back to them.

House hunting is exhausting. Maybe if you do this with them again you can take a camera? I don't know if you have a digital camera but that sure would be a good way to go back later and remember the details of each house.

I hope they find something they like soon. And I hope you have a restful weekend.

I love your word exhautified! I think we've all had days like that! Shopping for a house is beyond stressful, when you think of all the packing and unpacking you have to do once you find one!
Maybe you'll find one soon!

Good luck with the house hunting. I hope you find something quick because before you know it it will be time for Christmas shopping.

Hope you have a great weekend and get some rest, Linda. :-)

I can't even begin to imagine shopping for a house. I've lived in rented houses and then an apartment all my life. I know your house will sell in God's time, but it's hard sometimes not to get impatient when He's taking so long to get things done.

Oh Linda, I just laughed my head off! Just the visual alone of you being in the middle of the store and falling over is beyond hilarious to me. You see, I love to shop, love house hunting, and do both when I just want to get some new ideas. lol Too funny, huh! My best friend and my Mom are like you! Go figure! It is what makes us work! We compliment each other! *Big toothy smile* :)
