There's a key, key difference...

...between looking longingly at houses and looking admiringly at houses.

"Longingly" happened when I wasn't sure I'd be able to move from a studio apartment into the room of a house. It definitely happened when I wasn't even hearing back from anybody about rooms for rent.

"Admiringly" happened, well, at least today while I walked on errands. And it's likely happened a time or two in the two weeks since I MOVED INTO THE ROOM IN THIS PLACE. I looked at several cute houses as I walked or bussed by them and simply went "that's a cute house." And I went on from there.

A relief, to appreciate houses when I know I can be in one again.
