On the way to Colorado

I thought I was going to bed early last night (somewhere between 9:30 pm and 10:00 pm), but it turns out that I was just getting a nap. I woke up at 1:00 am, completely unable to go back to sleep. No matter, I will just finish the packing I planned to do when I woke up at 6:30 am today.

My plan for the week is to show you my favorites of the houses we see in any particular day. I think we are going to see 10 per day for the first 3 days, and then Michael’s mother will be coming in to see our finalists on Thursday. We hope to make an offer on a house then. It’s not like we haven’t been looking since October.

I am all organized for this trip. I am bringing the camera (mental note… don’t forget the USB transfer cable) and a composition book to record our thoughts about the various houses (remember to look for backup pens…). We printed out our list of favorite houses and their addresses.

I am really excited about bringing my new cloak on this trip. I know, I still haven’t photographed it yet – and it’s awesome. I think it will show best against the Colorado snow. On the plane, the cloak will double as a blanket (for when I crash after I am certain that all will be well).

I am off to pack the knitting I need for the trip. So far I have planned to bring supplies to finish the contest dishcloths, the kilt hose, and the scarf my aunt asked me to make. I think I may need to make a scarf for Michael as well – his wool coat is open at the top, and he needs coverage. I have some leftover yarn from a sweater I knit him last year, and I think it will be perfect for a scarf (the yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran).

I’ll check in tomorrow with the first houses of the trip!

  1. 10 houses per day! Wow… you are going to be exhausted! I remember looking at 4-6 houses in one day each week when I was househunting, and I remember that my brain got scrambled after a few houses…. they all just started to blend together. Good luck!
