Thursday Thirteen

Last week I did 13 things I didn't like about my house, and so for balance, here's 13 things I do like.

  1. It is 2 blocks from a Mexican Starbucks twin.
  2. The surrounding wall and imposing gate do make a safe place for my daughter to go play - even without any "nature" around.
  3. Since my children have gotten used to the thundering traffic, they sleep though anything. Once we did have a pick-the-house-up-and-drop-it type thunderstorm (VERY RARE here) and it made my hubby and me sit up straight in our beds, but the kiddies must of thought it was just a convoy of trucks cause they slept - well - like babies.
  4. The rent is WAY CHEAP even for Mexico.
  5. The tub, albeit ugly green and not a jacuzzi, is huge and a girl can really get a soak on.
  6. I love the granny suite, we tore up it's bathroom because it was all set up wrong and was molding, but otherwise it is a complete little studio apartment. Sure is nice to have a place like that for visitors and grandma!
  7. We have 3 functioning toilets, so there's never a line
  8. One of said toilets is outside on the "patio", it's the one bathroom that people who stay in the granny suite use. It's separate from the house. I like that. It provides more privacy for both visitor and us.
  9. Said bathroom has a urinal in it :-)
  10. I find the inside of this house is lovely.
  11. It has lovely windows in the kids room and the living room.
  12. Since it is walled off from the world, we don't need/use curtains.
  13. It is 10 blocks from the ocean.

Great 13! We only have one bathroom at my house! Always a line, especially on Sunday mornings! Not good!
Mine are up here and here!

Great list! We have three bathrooms, too, one in our daughter's "Princess Suite" so she has her own, the little guy still uses his potty, so that can be in any bathroom, Daddy usually uses the one in the hallway or the one in the master suite, but that one has the bathtub and an non-functioning shower, so it's really MINE!

My TT is up (a new improved one!)

I love having three bathrooms too!! So good! Great about being 10 blocks from the beach!! Isn't it a great feeling to count the things we are thankful for. It really can change our perspective! Good for you.

I agree with your comment on my post about praying about the little things. I forgot that one. Such a great explanation though about how God has eternity with us. I never thought about it that way. I always feel a little guilty praying about my little things. Thanks :)

Gotta love functioning toilets! :)

Hope you had a great day!

We have 3 and a half baths, and while GREAT for the non-waiting issue, it IS more to clean and keep stocked with toilet paper. Not to be negative. It IS better than just having one I guess, huh?

Your house sounds awesome. MY favorite though is the beach thing. That would be AMAZING to be able to just GO to the beach whenever. I have to say, I feel a little jealous bone popping out!!

A urinal? For real?

I just tagged you over at my blog, if you'd like to play along.

That's it! I'm coming for a visit! See you at the beach. :) ha ha
