Fallen Off the Face of the Earth?

Nope! We're still here, albeit semi-absent from the blogging world. Geez, I didn't even post the Not "Baaad" Sundays linky this weekend (tsk, tsk!) Sexy Nerd and I have been 100% distracted by something since last weekend. We are thinking...

...of buying a house!

And not just any old dumpy house either. Well, okay, the house at the top of our list right now is about as dumpy as they come (it's a foreclosure that would need everything redone, including repairing the damage from this winter when all the pipes burst). But it has potential! Over 5000 square feet of potential, actually, which is a bit nuts because we were originally hoping to downsize from our current 2700 sq ft house. We also have a few more reasonably sized homes to visit today and tomorrow.

We're dreading selling our first home, partly because it seems like such an overwhelming process. What if our buyer wants to purchase with a contingency, but then their buyer needs a contingency, and so on? I feel like we could be reliant on the sale of dozens of homes before we can close on ours!

Our current house is so perfect, with everything remodeled to be exactly what we're looking for. Still, there are some tempting homes on the market.

We're going to go check out this pretty house today. Fingers crossed that it's so wonderful we can scrap our silly 5000 sq ft fixer upper idea!
