No joke! Not only are they both expensive, but I am seeing a pattern similarity! ;) Here it goes:
You have that 'fun' leisurely part of just looking at what is available (seeing cute babies), then the stressful part of finding the perfect one, out bidding other buyers, and getting approved for a mortgage (morning sickness, getting fat). Next comes the signing of paperwork and renovations (no sleep, lots of work), and finally the forgetting of all the awfulness and wanting to do it all over again because you like the end result.
Call me crazy but today I started looking at real estate and our renovations aren't even complete. I need an intervention. Someone please intervene!
