I Have a Crush – And I Can’t Keep it a Secret

March 19, 2009 Katja Presnal

I’m an adult, and I would have thought the high school crushes would have been over by now.

But no.

This is even worse than those sleepless nights thinking about that boy.

This time it isn’t just about me whose feelings and lives I need to think about.
I am a mother, and a wife.

But I can’t help it.

I wish I didn’t have these feelings.

I wish I could keep it inside, but I can’t. Because the crush is already a size of a house.

Well. It is a house.

I’ll have the first date with my crush tomorrow, and I am almost hoping that I will learn things that I will not like.

Just so, you know, I could move on with my life, and stop dreaming of having a prom date and happily ever after with this gorgeous Victorian with a wrap-around porch.

    Read my newer post! The house was pretty rough inside, and would have been way too expensive for us, and not worth it for us. But I’m glad we went to see it – now I don’t have to regret it – or try to figure out ways to afford it :)

    Oi tuon talon te oisitte ansainneet!!! Toivottavasti saatte hankittua unelmanne. terkuin Marja & pojat

  3. Katja, that is a gorgeous house! It looks big and interesting. It’s funny that both you and your husband were scoping it out without mentioning it to the other.

    A girl can dream, right?

    I can’t wait to see the house inside today, and I am really hoping to see skeletons in the closets, because this is over our price range. But the thing is… I drove by the house yesterday morning, didn’t tell my husband was going to.. He called me on the afternoon, and I finally admitted driving by, and he admitted making an appointment to see it! He has the crush too!

    (leaving now to buy a lottery ticket before my date with the house)

  5. What a beautiful house!! There is a neighborhood here with lovely victorians, but none have a porch like this. Best of luck in getting your crush!

  6. Oh! I am so jealous! I have a crush on your crush too (LOL). That is a beautiful house. I dream of owning a house with four bedrooms and a big yard for my kids and our dog. Right now we live in a shoe box otherwise known as our condo.

    Keep us posted!!!! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that your “crush” likes you back.

  7. Aivan USKOMATON talo! Suoraan mun unelmista. Noita löytää vain Jenkeistä. Niitä olenkin siellä ollessa aina kuolannut…Suomessa saan noista vaan haaveille. Eipä löydy ei…
    Toivon että saatte tuon! Ei olisi upeampaa taloa voinut tulla vastaan. =)

  8. I. LOVE. THAT. HOUSE. I’ve always wanted one just like it! I hope, hope, hope you can have it. I really do. Because then I can come and visit you and pretend it’s mine. ;)
