Something I Want and a Writing Update

Ever since I moved into my condo there has been this cute house up the block that I always said that I wanted. Well, it is on the market now and if it wasn't for the fact that it would be next to impossible to unload our condo and the fact that zero percent down products don't exist anymore I would totally want to buy it.

If we could get out from under our condo, even taking a hit on it (since this is so under valued) AND if we could get the zero down loan, we'd be golden. Actually, it's a fair bit less that what we would be able to qualify for.

I want.

Four bedroom, three and a half baths, a nice sized backyard. No parking, that is a pain, but we could always rent a garage. But, it has a basement (one of the bedroom is in the basement).

I want sooo bad.
Cannot get.

Okay, this was suppose to be a writing update. Let me do that bit. I actually had a really good week, productivity wise. I am now at just a little over 26k, which is 4k for the week. I plan to spend most of the weekend writing tomorrow and wrap up the weeked at around 30k, which any luck. I have enough more outlined out to get to 35k so that is my goal for next week. Once I hit that, I am going to go work on touching up my previous work. The new stuff is *super* rough and I expect the word count of this plot amount to go up to around 50k (once I add in a subplot that I let slip).

26k isn't very exciting, but the 35k next week is a real possibility. If I can keep focused and can hit that goal, I will be ecstatic!

Oh wow. The downstairs of that house is gorgeous.

We live in a house, but it's getting a little small. So I'm always looking at the listings and such. It's very rare for a house the I want to make it onto the market. I can relate to how you feel.

Great job with the 4k words for the week. That's very good.

Oh I hate that feeling. When I want something so badly, but it's just too far outside my reach. It happened to us about a month ago with a house too. Here's to a great writing weekend for the two of us!

I saw you on struggling writer and wanted to say hi!

Good time to buy, bad time to sell, a tricksy place to be. Hope whatever you do works out for you.

And good luck with the writing, sounds like it's going well.

That entrance is just GORGEOUS! No wonder you're aching for it! Maybe someone will come by aching for yours, LOL!

@writer- Thanks. The whole house has built-ins like that. Oh well

@barrie- Sorry to hear you had a similar problem with your own desired house.

@duck- Thanks for saying hi :)

@vanilla- Thanks about the well wish for the writing and thanks for popping by.

@spy- Yeah, I don't think that will happen. I guess it is for the best. The public schools in the area are pretty bad so it's probably just as well (or that's just me trying to feel better about it :-P).
