We are in the process of trying to sell our townhouse here in Southern Maryland. We are also looking to possibly move to the Salt Lake City area in a few months and have spent some time on Realtor.com looking at available houses.
I started just looking at 3 bedroom houses. It's what we have now, and though our bedrooms need to be much, much bigger, 3 has worked.
But then I saw houses with four! five! seven! bedrooms! Oh, the space! What could I do with more rooms? A music room? An office? How exciting!
And then there are the bathrooms. Right now we have 2 1/2 bedrooms, and that seems to work out fine. One for Garry & me, one for the girls, and one for guests on the main level. That's about right.
But the other day I was amazed to see a house with four bathrooms. Four! Wow!
And then reality settled in. I do not even like cleaning the bathrooms I have. What would I do with more?!?!
I need to stop looking at higher numbers as big and exciting and start seeing them for what they really are: more work.
