After endless trips, today my wife finally found a house that she likes She said all criteria meet my requirement and I’m super happy to hear that! I’m going to check it out after work and go with agent to the site on Saturday….
of course, nothing fixed yet. Subject to *my* inspection and if nobody bids it earlier than Saturday…
My dream… only meters away now!
That our house market value has appreciated quite decently only means the house we want to upgrade to is even more expensive.
I want to make a move to a decent house with good individual schools. And hopefully don’t have to move again until Amy goes to college or I move out of Seattle. We have looked quite a few houses but they are all out of budget even though I have raised budget to overstretch level And my picky wife is hard to please too She doesn’t like any house that I like
It’s so frustrating and tiring. Now I give up searching and let my wife deal with this. I just set budget limit
Today Amy and her mom went to library and mom was doing self-checkout. Amy went to the libarian and asked libarian, "Can I get some stamp?" "Sure, which one do you like?", the libarian said with a smile. Amy said, "Can I get both?" The libarian happily stamped both her hands
This might not be surprising for an American but for Amy, English is just her second language. At least I talked 99% Chinese to her. I am just amazed by her English level and have absolutely no doubt that she would have no language problem when she went to preschool this September.
I am so proud of you Amy.
The best moments of my life.. it actually happens daily now. My Amy would run to me and hug me and then cries out loud:"Daddy, I love you!" And I would open my arms waiting for her to jump into my arms. She would then press her cheek on mine (this is her way of kiss)
Sweet moments, even given me a million dollar, I would’t exchange it…
