Fingers crossed, please!

This afternoon, demeth, aka the hubby, and I are putting in an offer on a house. We would greatly appreciate crossed fingers, toes, or any other body parts that you perceive to be appropriate and vibes/prayers/etc. sent into the universe or to the god/goddess of your choice.

In spite of the minor things that need to be done (paint, carpeting, new kitchen countertops and appliances), this house has tons of potential. It's also 3.5 x bigger than our existing house (3687 sq. ft. vs 1040 sq ft). Two fireplaces and a pool.

Here is a link to the pictures I took today. Kindly ignore the weird lighting and color. I was playing with my new camera, which has an architectural setting. Color is irrevelant anyway as we'd be repainting everything but the downstairs bathroom and replacing all the carpeting.

I didn't realize your current place was that small. The place I'm getting is just a hair under that, but only for one person.

Thanks! We really want us to have it, too. So much so that our offer is for over the asking price (there are already offers in on it so we want ours to be the best!)

Keep your fingers and toes crossed!

Wow! Very cool!! I'm surprised you haven't already designated Elis' room. Maybe the purple/pink one? You could throw in an animal head and everything!

I'm torn between the purple/pink and the blue for her. It's really such a tough decision...

Of course, there's also the third stall down in the garage that's a possibility.

Unfortunately, it needs to be painted as well. And somehow, I don't think Rob will go for the pink and purple color scheme when we repaint...

Hijacking Rob's login here...These colors were *nothing* compared to the last house we looked at on Wednesday.

Bathroom was *bright* turquoise/aqua. Upstairs game room had bright red carpeting and bright purple walls. All of the rooms downstairs were in "OMG, my EYES!" shades.

Another one had every single wall painted a dark color. Dark green. Dark red. Dark gold. Brown. Ugh.

Yeah, I told Rob that many of these places make our 18 year old carpet look fresh and new. And we won't even mention allowing the kids to draw on the walls.

Of course, these are the same people who took light fixtures, built-in speakers, and doorknobs with them so what doyou expect?
