SO lives in La La Land
SO and I plan to get married sometime this year...We haven't set a date yet.
I want to buy a house. I'm almost 40 and would like my own home. I'm tired of landlords and want something that I can change and make my own.
We were talking about this the other day and discussing "Must Haves" for this imaginary home we want to buy. SO wants an area to park the boat so we don't have to continue to pay the monthly storage fee on it. Makes sense.
I want a fenced yard because we have three dogs, no brainer to me but I also must have either a 4th bedroom or a home with a formal living room and family room. I'm sick of SO's computer being in our room. I want it out. A 4th bedroom or a home with two living room type areas will work for that.
SO tells me when buying a home we have to compromise and might not get what we want...No Duh, I would love a gourmet kitchen but that's not going to happen on our budget.
In regards to the 4th bedroom he says
SO: Well the kids will only be around for another decade
ME: You do know a decade means 10yrs right
SO: Yes, what do you think I'm stupid or something. I wouldn't say it if I didn't know what it meant.
ME: Hey, you said it like it's not that long. 10yrs is a long time. (in my mind I added "with Skids")
SO: No its not.
Come back to reality SO. I'm living with your computer in my room for another 10yrs.
