Back in the Swing of Things

We dove back into househunting today driving around and looking at a few properties in Santa Ana and Anaheim. Found one we really liked in Anaheim that definitely bears further investigation. Unfortunately they already have an offer so we may have missed this one.

Saw some truly horrifying things. One house was so dark you practically needed a flashlight to navigate it. Another was equally dark and was infested with some sort of rank smell that you'd have to tent the house with Lysol and probably recarpet to get rid of it. In one house we were walking through and my aunt casually said "Do you want to see the back yard?" and we were like "No, I think we're good here."

I did release a vicious hound at one house though. The owners weren't there but there was a lockbox on the door and a note to the effect of "please don't let the dog out of the laundry room." Okay, no problem. In we go and there's the dog, a little chihuahua puppy, behind a baby gate in the laundry room. He was very excited to see us, wagging his tail and barking. So we're touring the house and I come to a back bedroom and there's a door. Thinking it was a closet, I opened it and the dog came barreling out.

Apparently the laundry room has two doors.

I screamed "Oh Shit!" because I was so startled. Luckily the dog was super-friendly and wanted nothing more than to kiss us and play. Kevin came in quickly and closed the bedroom door so we had him contained in one room, and then managed to scoop him up and kind of tossed/shoved him back into the laundry room. I think we made his entire day. It was funny but it sure scared the heck out of me when he came shooting out.
