Katie goes to Kansas!

All of us went to Kansas Thursday and Friday to look at a house to rent. We just can't afford the rent here anymore. Plus we are paying good money for this duplex and can never get them to fix anything. Jack had to repair the screen door after we waited for over a month. Now with last weekends storms we only have two outlets that work in the kitchen because the GFI outlet was blown out. When Jack said something to them they said that they would fix it if they could find a maintenance man! WHATEVER!!! Here is the victorian cottage we will be renting. We aren't moving until April and the landlord needs that time to repair some things. We gave him an ernest deposit and he has already given us the keys!! I can not believe it! Plus I can paint and decorate to my hearts content!


Here is the living room.

Our bedroom with a door to it's own porch!

Part of the kitchen. I know it doesn't look like a lot of storage but we have a huge pantry on the other side so it is plenty!

The dining room. It has a vaulted ceiling that extends into the kitchen. I hate the light though! UGLY!

We have tons of closets and storage plus another bedroom we will use as an office/hobby room. There are pocket doors dividing the living room from the dining room and one dividing our bedroom from the dining room. Yes, it did meet with Katie's approval! Graceful me managed to embarrass myself! I slipped and fell on ice getting into the car. No harm done as I landed on a big mound of snow and ice that was dang near up to my hind end anyway! I didn't much like the wet britches though! Jack thinks he is funny too! He is calling me Dorothy and Katie Dodo instead of Toto! Ha, ha Jack! We stopped and saw my cousin who lost his son last month and our neice Tina on the way home yesterday. We were all plum tuckered out but it was a good trip!

I love that front porch and the house is simply cute and quaint!
I laughed and laughed about the snow being up to your hind end! Glad it was so that you didn't get hurt!

Great house I really like it. Your houses are so much larger then ours, I would love loads of cupboards and spaces to put things. I think you will be very happy in this place :-))
