She's gone LINK crazy!!!

We're just beginning the process of buying our first home. And by "just beginning", I mean we sent in some online application to see if we can even afford to do it. We're tired of giving all that money to 'sweaty landlord' every month. We'd much rather be giving it all to 'stingy loan shark man in business suit'. You know?

Our friends Josh & Susanna are selling their house because Josh just got a job in Michigan, and we love their house but the paperwork process feels like it will take far too long for us to be able to buy it in time. Plus, it doesn't have a basement- and after last month's scare I think a basement is almost more important than having a functioning toilet in the house. At this point though, in lieu of a tornado shelter, I might settle for just digging a big hole in the backyard and throwing some flashlights and canned goods down in it. Maybe for a finishing touch I could post a sign that says "No tornades allowed"- just to be on the safe side.

I like this house, but we might only be able to afford something more along the lines of this at the moment.... hehe. I'll let you know how it goes...

I'll leave you with an older picture of Ezra (courtesy of Uncle Cam-sauce) that pretty much sums up his goof-ball personality. Oh, Ezra, you're such a wacky whack-a-mole...
