“Home. Home again. I like to be there when I can. And when I come home cold and tired, it’s good to warm my bones beside the fire.”
What was the point of that quote?
Well, in part, I am trying to get the site ranked for misc. Pink Floyd lyrics. I am an SEO by trade, so why the hell not?
The other part is that I just spent another few hours pouring through an MLS list trying to find potential homes to go see this week. We have been watching the MLS home listings for a few months now, keeping an eye on the market, and starting this Friday, we will start actually looking at the homes with our realtor, not just the crappy low resolution images of bits and pieces of the homes.
So I have ‘home’ on my brain, thus that particular Pink Floyd lyric. Naturally, there is a Floyd lyric for all occasions.
I think there are lots of nice places (mostly condos/patio homes) that are close enough to ASU — which will be great in a few years when we decide to sell or rent the place.
The other reasons for staying in Tempe are that the move will be relatively painless, I will remain close to my office, and we are smack-dab in the middle of the metro area, which means we are close to everything. Most importantly, we will have room for our boy and the amazing amount of stuff he has despite the fact that he still lives in a womb.
The scary part is neither set of grandparents or great-grandparents have gone crazy with baby stuff yet, nor have we had the baby shower. When it comes down to it, I could get rid of all my books, Star Wars toys, sports stuff, and all my comics and cards and still not have enough room for all the stuff we are getting for him. I am thinking that our kid will bring about sweeping economic change. So much for trying to make him a minimalist.
