House hunting

[ #640 ]
Ugh. We're trying to find a larger house, and this is driving me insane. Hours of driving around looking at expensive houses in far-away suburbs are taking their toll on me. I can now walk into a house and within 45 seconds tell you whether it's a candidate, though.

We're shooting for five bedrooms and an office, and I'm coming to the conclusion that I do not earn enough to live in a house that big. All the ones that are big enough cost too much, and those we can afford have one bedroom too few. We remain optimistic that somewhere there's a retarded seller offering us the bargain we're looking for.

Until we find that retard, though, stress is high and my ability to do work is down. I tried sitting in on a conference call today from the cellphone, and moving around I'd lose signal every 2 minutes or so. It was incredibly frustrating, not to mention unproductive.

I need a vacation. Someone plan a conference for REAL SOON!
