Complete with hair that's straight on one side and wavy on the other (and frizzy all over, despite the use of anti-frizz stuff)

(viewed 1054 times) I'm waiting to find out if I got into my doctoral program (any minute now). I'm also waiting to find out if we got any of the grants we applied for (also any time now). And I'm getting ready to prepare a purchase offer on the house I want to buy. I'm currently waiting for a delivery from University Police. So..I'm...waiting...and slightly adorable (for those in the know) ;)

The Cloud That Follows Me Around ;)

Caught this the other day while waiting for Frank to get done at work. I'm still getting used to the weather here. One minute, it's gorgeous (note the blue skies) and the next it's thunderstorming and totally dark. It's OK, though - I love thunderstorms :)

The House

(viewed 940 times)
Ok, so the following few pics are the house I'm currently trying to purchase. I found this one night while walking the dog - the real estate company isn't a local company, so the house isn't listed anywhere in town. To make a long story short, this house belonged to the grandmother of the man selling (it now belongs to his father and uncle). It's a brick 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home. The inside has been completely redone (after a house fire in 2000), but has never been lived in (the grandmother died in early 2001 before the renovations were complete). So, essentially, it's a brand new house inside of a nice old brick one. Since this is an older town, newer houses are really hard to find, so this is a great deal and just what I wanted. Wish me luck! :)

East Side

(viewed 1082 times)
Ok, this is the East Wall of the house I'm trying to buy. The double upstairs/downstairs porches are visible here. The dormer at the top is part of the gigantic attic. The bump out at the front (top left) is part of the master bedroom. The neighbor's house is visible in the background. And, no, that huge yard doesn't belong to me. It's a vacant lot owned by a guy who lives somewhere else in town but keeps it mowed.

As you can see, the garage needs some work. It's entirely brick structurally, but it needs a new roof and a new door. The next door neighbor's garage looks exactly the same, as the houses were built at the same time.
