On the way to the adoption event I drove through the neighborhood where I am interested in buying a house. Yesterday I looked up the crime map for the area and this neighborhood had the least amount of crime compared to the other areas I was looking at and, surprisingly, no sex offenders. The houses are, um, a bit homely in my opinion. Slump block, low or flat roofs, one story. I could tell that some people took pride in maintaining their homes and others didn't care. I am eager to see inside the houses next week.
I managed to slip away today and buy some more vinyl tile. I picked a cheaper pattern and didn't even realise that the tiles were supposed to be installed in line instead of staggered. I had already started the staggered pattern so I had to continue.
