I go on my computer this morning and the first thing I saw was this headline:
"The most expensive home listing in the US" - -
I love looking at homes and fantasizing, so I looked. The most expensive home listing in the US is in Dallas - that didn't surprise me. The price? $135 million. Still didn't surprise me. Shocking, disgusting maybe. . . but not a surprise. The square footage? Almost 29,000. That's 29 THOUSAND . . . FEET. I did a quick calculation and realized that you could fit more than 14 of my houses inside this "home." A 29,000 square foot "home" . . . home is such a funny word. I did a quick "google" and found many 29,000 square foot "buldings", as in commercial buildings. I found no 29,000 square foot "homes." Who needs a 29,000 square foot home??? Not even the Duggars need a home that big. That would be over 1,000 square feet PER PERSON!!
This "home" has a 6300 square foot "guest house" - - I want to live forever as the "guest"!!! It has a 7200 square foot "pool house" - - again, ME - - GUEST - - FOREVER.
Okay, I don't really want to live in their 6300 sq foot guess house and swim in their pool or get lost in their bathrooms or grocery shop in their kitchen. I like my reality too much.
So, I will happily go home to my 2100 square foot home after working 8 hours today, and I will count my blessings, of which there are many.
After all, I am a grandma :)
