NaBloPoMo ~ Mrs. Peacock, in the hall, with the candlestick

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes?
Well, I can't say that I've ever noticed that my home was not like other people's. I'd say that as a child I grew up in homes that were just like everyone else's. Normal. Now of course there's a difference between growing up in a normal home and the home of a rich family (lots of nice stuff in it) or a family without kids (very clean), but all in all, I'd say that I've never felt that I've lived in a house that wasn't like everyone else's.
Now, that's not to say that I'm not interested in what other people's houses look like. I've always been interested in looking in everyone's homes. Yes, I'm that girl who looks in your window as I'm walking down the street and your lights are on with the shades open. I'm also that person who sometimes goes to open houses just to look at the inside of people's houses. No their stuff mind you, at the house itself. I like to imagine what it would be like for me to live there. That's not creepy, right? I've also always been really fascinated with floor plans for houses. Once, I even found the perfect floor plan for my dream home. I'm sure if I dug through enough boxes in the basement I could find it.
I love looking at the pictures of lottery show homes. So beautiful. And I love looking at home builder floor plans. I love architecture and landscaping and interior design. Not to do any of it, mind you, just looooove lookin at it.
I love castles and the possibility of hidden rooms. I love the movie Clue. That house they're in is teh awesomes!
One day I think I might get into the real estate business. One day I'd like to design my own home from scratch. One day I'd like to save enough money for a down payment for my own home that looks just like everyone else's. But it will be different and special, because it will be mine.
