Searching for houses online is the quickest way to get your hopes up. We saw a house in the perfect spot, with just the right amount of rooms and a good price. Our realtor set up a visit for the day after. All I could think of is how much I would like to love the house, to walk in and feel that it is 'the one'. That evening I created this page. And, once again, the French text told a story. Actually, it predicted how I will feel.
I don't speak French, but 'le désappointement' can only mean - disappointment... right? And that's what it was. The family was still living in the house, so they were there when we visited. I have never, ever saw such clutter in my life. We literary had to watch where we were stepping to avoid walking on their clothes. There was no air, no space, no light... I couldn't even use my imagination to picture this place as our home. We quickly left the place, and 'désappointement' is what I felt.
