1. I firmly believe I will not move any furniture from either Ikea or Jennifer convertibles. This is a triumph of optimism over experience.
2. It will force me to get a dumpster and clean out the basement, which has accumulated an alarming amount of useless stuff we don’t want in just under four years. A new basement will not do this. (Again, optimism bests history.)
3. I can’t decide what color to paint the porch.
4. Baby #3 cannot sleep in a bassinet forever. He will need to move into a crib, and out of our closet, in a remarkably short amount of time. He will need, specifically, Lily’s crib and Lily’s room–and she’s not going to like it.
5. In order to accomodate the above, Lily must move into Sam’s room, and I have to decide whether the two of them can share the small existing room or should move, with accompanying difficulties of paint and furniture, into the larger guest room. And I really should do that before the baby can fling itself out of the bassinet.
6. I honestly believe moving the whole lot of them into a new and different house would be simpler. This, I’m guessing, is the triumph of optimism over common sense, also described as the triumph of stupidity over everything else.
7. I’m tired of this house. I want a different one. I am avoiding the fact that a new pair of shoes, or even a new sofa, would certainly involve fewer transaction costs.
8. I never even knew I wanted a house with a view until I saw this one.
9. I have always longed to tend a well and a septic tank. (That’s for my dad, He thinks, for some odd reason, that that’s a bad idea. He may have noticed that we are having some trouble tending to our second bathtub.)
10. It will solve all of my problems, and life from then on would be just a beautiful dream.
