|I like this one best because it has a big open back yard and it's in Westerville, which is sort of where we are staying now only this is Westerville proper, not Westerville-zip-Worthington-schools-Colu|
|This house has a sunroom addition in the back. I'd like more space in the back yard, but there's a lot to recommend the house. It's in Westerville, too, in a neighborhood that seems very nice.|
|If only this house were in my beloved Westerville! Alas, it is in an odd but lovely spot that a rec center clerk might call Powell-zip-Olentangy-schools-Orange Township. The back yard is a good size and looks out on woods, it's gorgeous. The house is on a cul-de-sac in a low-traffic neighborhood, another plus. This was my favorite house until I saw the weird one. It's still a strong contender, but I am a little afraid of the location. I predict growing pains for Orange Township in the form of inadequate roads and services. Brian says I am overthinking this issue. I'm going to take another look at the house and reconsider, although it's also listed at a somewhat inflated price, so we'd probably offer less and they might say no and put my overthinking to rest.|
In other news, today was house-cleaning day. On Monday, my house started to smell and it wasn't my fault. Especially upstairs, there was a strong odor of cigarette smoke. Tuesday was a gorgeous day, warm and windy. I opened all the windows but this morning it smelled just as bad. So on the way back from the skating lesson this morning we stopped at Target for odor-masking cleaning products and we spent a few hours applying them. Now my house smells like someone spilled perfume on my grandfather. It's supposed to be getting colder starting tomorrow but I may try the windows again.
