House Hunters - Texas Style!
As of yesterday, our family began a process that is renowned only in it's tedious, complex nature. Yes, the house hunt is begun!
Now, as a person who has experienced this process twice now in my lifetime, let me just say that it is WAY harder than it looks! Bear in mind that you are talking to the girl that, at the tender age of four, said frequently "NO MORE HOUSES!". I, of course, remember no such thing being interjected- just a whole lot of driving. Those memories came back to me before long as we spent seven hours in the car with our real estate agent, roving about the more peaceful parts of the city to look for houses. Keep in mind that San Antonio looks nothing like Seattle, so this is a bit different than you might imagine. Above is a picture of Stone Oak, where we are currnetly living. A few more trees than you may have thought, eh? But it is also very, very big, being among the top ten largest cities in this country of ours. This means much time spent in an air conditioned car, and what feels like an equally long time span outside in the steamy SA air. But we enjoy it, looking at all the different homes around the hill country. Our search has only just begun, so wish us luck!
