I pink puffy heart House Hunters, but the people on the show are starting to really work my nerves.
Waaaah. It doesn't have granite counter tops. (I have never had granite counter tops. Never will. I'm hoping for quartz if I ever get to remodel.)
Waaaah. It doesn't have stainless appliances. (These either. Magnets don't stick.)
Waaaah. There's carpet in the bathroom. (I like carpet in the bathroom. The house we built had carpet in two of the bathrooms. You just have to be careful.)
Waaaah. There's only one sink in the bathroom. (We went from two to one. We had to adjust.)
Waaaah. This room is Pepto Pink. (We accidentally had one of those rooms (It was supposed to be mauve.) We repainted it Sugar Cookie.)
Waaaah. There's no hardwood flooring. (Three. Count them. Three rooms in this house had 1970s red/orange shag. One even had (still has) red/white flocked wallpaper and grey/white paneling.)
One thing I have noticed is that the less money people are spending, the less picky they are. Usually the hundreds of thousands of dollar purchasers are the whiny babies.
Did you know I agreed to purchase the house I live in without ever seeing it in person? Just some iffy photos The Commander took? Did you know I never stepped foot into this house until after I signed the mortgage papers?
Do you know what I got excited about? Double ovens (One is a convection oven.). Double ovens that now anger me because I can't fit a jellyroll pan in either one of them?
Probably the one thing that is bothering me the worst about House Hunters? For whatever reason, St@r J0ne$ has been popping up as host. Gag. Why HGTV? Why?
One thing is clear to me. You can't know everything you'd like to know. You can't do everything you'd like to do. You can't read everything you'd like to read. You must hold onto some things and let go of others. Learning to make that choice is one of the big lessons of this life. - Real Live Preacher, Real Live Preacher.com weblog, September 9, 2003
