Something today's birthday boy would appreciate...

where i am: with Dempsey & Flurry
how i am: exhausted
accompanied by: Hubby's TV chatter

I'm just exhausted, having spent the day with a real estate agent scoping out potential new homes for my dad. Dad lives about 2.5 hours north of us and has decided he wants to move closer to me, as well as his only grandchild (my nephew), who's about an additional 45 minutes away. Wanting to save the 80 year old much of the legwork, his agent and I spent the day on reconnaissance, whittling down the prospects so that he'll only have about a half dozen places to look at.

In the end I think I looked at 12 different units in 6 different buildings in 2 different cities ~ all apartment type condos and, with the exception of 4 units, all worth while looking at.

Only one gave me a SPN moment though...

Can you say classic car buff? With a penchant for muscle cars?

Not convinced yet?

How about this...

Oh. My. God!

LOL, the scary part is, this is actually a really lovely unit too. Check out this angle...

The view is of a protected conservation area and, since Dad is still very mobile, he and his dog would have wonderful trails and places to walk. Do I really want him living right smack dab in my city though? Oh, well... que sera, sera.

So, do you think Dean would appreciate this guy's taste in decor or would it be too much, even for Dean?

I'm so very, very glad Kripke gave you another one *G*

Exactly! My weeknights are so short, seldom home from work before 6-6:30, dinner rarely before 7:30 and my dad usually hits the hay around 8:00. If he thinks moving close to me means me inviting him over for dinners on weeknights, he's living in la-la land! Maybe the odd Friday but that's about it. Not to mention the fact that my weekends are for my dogs, not for his dog to come over all the time, have run of the place while my guys relegated to yet another restricted shift (like while Dakota's been here... he's still here BTW). He'd certainly see way more of us living down in this neck of the woods, which I would like too, but hopefully proximity to my house isn't going to be his deciding factor because the expectations that go along with that might fall way short in reality ;)

Thanks so much for the understanding ;)

Dean happy

It sounds like a good idea until you sit down and realize just how crazy busy you are day to day. ;) So lets hope he decides on the other condo-and it will be a good move for him-and for you all!
*Hugs you*
