It's been a distracted kind of few days here. When I should be thinking about ways to explain direct and indirect object pronouns in Spanish, I find myself daydreaming about a house. It seems silly, but it's something we've been saving for, searching for, and waiting anxiously for for the past several years.
We went to tour six houses on Sunday. The first three were bad. Really, really bad. There were bad stucco jobs to cover wallpaper (that clearly didn't do the job), a house that had no room for a kitchen table or a dining room table (or really even a tv tray), and another where the highlight was a big closet with a shelf (but because of the creepiness of the place, our realtor was joking that "a small coffin could fit up there"). Not good.
But, luckily our tours improved and we saw three really nice houses. One of them might be our future home. We shall see.
In the mean time, here's to trying as hard as possible (unsuccessfully, I'm sure) to focus on
