So we made an offer today...

Steve was looking on Redfin and found a place across the 8 from Qualcomm going for within our price range. We were there at 1:00 when it started showing, and I thought we were going to have to have our own little rendition of the Hunger Games given all the vicious-looking house speculators roaming it with their real estate agents. We put in our offer at about 4 pm this afternoon.

We'll rent the condo, which was always the plan. But we really want this house. It's 3 bedrooms with 2 baths. The bedrooms are a little small, but the great room is enormous. The kitchen has a gas stove, which I've been missing.

But the backyard! It's not giant, but large enough, with a sturdy shed that's 100 square feet or so, two very old pepper trees, and a tire swing hanging off the larger one. There's a covered deck. There's room for a garden. It's everything I could want in a back yard.

The first guy who came in with us said he hated the trees, and I had said already I loved them. I hope the trees can have some good nature-magic influence in our favour.

That annoys me when people buy houses, hate the trees, and rip them out. They were there first, you know? People next door to where I grew up tore up a *huge* oak tree because they didn't like the acorns. Very sad.

If it's not a foreclosure or a short sale, maybe your love of the trees will make a difference to the sellers. I hope you get it!

Why would anyone hate trees? They reduce cooling bills in the summer and serve as a windbreak in the winter.
