We decided to rent a house, at least initially, so that we can get to know the area and determine where exactly we'd like to settle. Peter found the house with the help of our friend's mother, who just so happens to be our new next door neighbor. The house is nice little 3 bedroom, 1½ bathroom townhouse. There is an amazing park down the street but with the recent snow we've essentially been home bound. Since we are still working on meeting people, the girls and I are seeing a whole lot of one another. This new house is very colorful. Very, very colorful compared to our old house.
We have a lime green bathroom, a three color kitchen, and a master bedroom with a blue accent wall. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of accent walls but since it's a rental my opinion of the wall color is irrelevant. The house has three stories which means lots of stairs. The top floor has the bedrooms, the basement is all storage, so we live on the second floor which is the living room and kitchen. Our living room is a soft yellow with three purple accent walls and curtains to match. I call it the purple room.
The purple room is our living space and playroom. There's no television (because there is no where to put it) so it's all toys all the time. And music, we've got to have some music. Life in the purple room isn't so bad. It's a bit crowded, since the dogs like to hang with us, but we're making do. Odds are we won't be in this house for more than a year or two, if that, but it's a fine pit stop.
