I HATE this house!

May I have the above please? Only make it be on the water, With lots of windows.

When I moved to this part of Fla, I rented a townhouse. I was so excited! A whole townhouse? Not a duplex or an apartment? In S Fla a townhouse was out of my pay grade.

Now 5 years later, I confess: I HATE THIS HOUSE!

One teenager, one tween, two bedrooms, no storage.................and mustard colored walls.

Ok, not really mustard, maybe a dark beige, a light tan.......(I'd take a picture, but my camera is away being fixed).

No, they are mustard. A cross between Grey Poupon and Frenches, but MUSTARD!

So, I've started looking for another rental.

It used to be so simple! You find a place you like, you move in.

Now it's different. You know what makes it different? KIDS! ARGH!

One is at one school, the other at another. Then there is soccer practice and friends and clubs and and and and and!

So I keep looking, and wondering if my landlord would kill me if I painted the darned walls WHITE!

I just LOVE your honesty. I feel guilty as I've lived in the same house for 36 years and love it. I'll keep my fingers crossed for just the perfect house to fill all your needs. I'm glad to see a new post from you. I've missed you.


P.S. I want my mansion in heaven to be by the ocean. Do you think that's asking too much?

Oh, I hope you can find another place, or I hope you stop hating your currant place. Whichever.
I'm sorry.
I just painted my living room...kinda a tan-y yellow-y beige..mustard! Haha!

Hey Michelle,

Thanks for your list. I agree with everything you wrote.

I just realized you are in Ft. Walton Beach. We have friends with a condo in Panama City Beach. If we come down this late summer maybe we can meet up. That would be very cool.

Sounds like you are ready for a change!! I hope you are able to do something to alleviate your frustration! Paint those walls - it will feel bigger and brighter for sure :)

I get the urge to move every year and a half now - I rearrange like a mad woman! Daniel just laughs at me - nice guy, huh! :)

LOL This post made me laugh! Not that I am laughing at your frustration with your house, but the description of your wall color and your "Kids! Argh!" statement certainly is true a lot of the times!

I'd love a house by the seaside too!
