What Not to do...

...when touring the prospective place where you want to live:

1. Do NOT bring your 2 small children.
2. Do NOT bring your 2 small children after being on the road for one hour.
3. Do NOT bring your 2 small children after being on the road for one hour and they were asleep the entire time.
4. Do NOT bring your 2 small children who slept the entire time on the hour long drive AND THEN attempt to put the realtor on speaker phone so he can tell you about the property while you are actually walking around chasing kids around.
5. Do NOT tell your 2 small children to go play in the other room, "while mommy talks to the man." Because when you have "the man" on speaker phone, he may get offended and say, "ma'am my name is Mr. *** not the man."
6. Do NOT let your 2 small children play outside in the yard before asking "the man" if the previous owner had any outside pets.--->y'all already know what happened...GAW!!!
7. Do NOT call your LOVING, CARING husband when your 2 small OVERLY ENGERGIZED children are "exploring." Well don't tell your husband they're "exploring" because obviously he can hear them over the phone running around and screaming. Because if you call your husband while they are doing just that, he just ends up hanging up the phone because he can't hear you over the running and screaming.

And the last thing...

8. Do NOT let these 2 small children run free in a house that has absolutely NO FURNITURE and ALL WOOD FLOORS! It is extra super loud.
