Mortgage? What's a mortgage?

The Mom has made the decision that she wants to buy a condo or a townhouse. She says that the Doofi (Loki and Monkee) are just way to big for our current place and she's sick of renting. So, she has been on the phone for the last few days getting "quotes" for this thing called a mortgage. I don't know what is it, but it's driving the Mom close to hysterics. She has been digging for papers and writing all this stuff down, mumbling about arms and percentage points and closing costs.

All I know is that means we'll eventually have to move. The Mom says it won't be until the spring, but it's still moving. I HATE moving. I don't want to move. I finally found all the comfy places here and I don't want to have to search a new place. Also, it means either being in The Box or locked in a small room with the Brats for the good part of a day. That is definitely not fun.

However, the Mom said the places she's looking at are at least twice as big as our place now and promised me lots of good hiding spots away from the Brats. If that's the case, it might be worth it. Bribing me with in my own room with lots of windows and Stinky Goodness would help. Hint, hint, Mom.

Speaking of Stinky Goodness, the Dad brought home sushi today for lunch and shared it only with the Mom. Salmon too. Bah. I may just have to puke on his pillow tonight when he's asleep.

I don't know anything about those mortgage things, but Mom said to tell you to have your mom check bankrate.com. Because my mom's in the business. (Well, not the bankrate.com business, but in the financial sector.) Anyway, it's all too much for a tiny boy like me. Good luck with all of it!

I'm not sure how I would feel about moving because I've only ever lived in this apartment since Mom and Dad found me (but then I'm only 1 and 1/2 years old). Anyway, they talk to us about a house someday too and make it sound grand. Same stuff your Mom was saying. I'm sure it will be worth the hassle.

He brought hom sushi and didn't give you any? What's wrong wif him? Good luck to yur Mom with the mortgage. Mom says they are a necessary evil till you pay them off a long long time away. Just think you'll have your very own home that you own someday.

But Ayla, think how nice it'll be having your own house. Then you'll never have to move again!
