Humble, Texas - Easy access to Houston proper, The Galleria, The Woodlands, etc.
We have recently moved from Waller to Humble, TX. I need to update the pictures on this site which I will do as soon as I can. This is a temporary move on our part as we'll be moving again in 6 months. Still have boxes to unpack, etc. The house is 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. Two story with living room, utility room, 1 1/2 baths, master bedroom, study & kitchen, eating area on the first floor. Second floor has a bath, little living room area and two bedrooms. House itself is equipped with cable TV in the living room downstairs and each bedroom upstairs. Wifii, security system, standard utilities (i.e. - A/C, heating). As we've just moved I can't tell you exactly what is within 5 miles but the house is located very close to a freeway so it makes getting around to Houston proper, the Galleria, The Woodlands, the 1960 area, etc. very easy. We are approximately 7 miles from Houston Intercontinental Airport. There is a 2 car garage but it is now totally taken up with our boxes that we aren't unpacking as this is our daughter's house and she will be returning in 6 months. Although we haven't learned the neighborhood yet I have been told there is a dog park nearby (which may even be within walking distance). Do know there is a gym, several banks, grocery stores, PostNet, multiple restaurants and a movie theater very close (I think within the five mile radius).
Our Home & Location
Back yard is fenced. I believe there is a community pool, but not sure. Have met the next door neighbor briefly and seems very knowledgeable about the area and friendly. Have not met his wife or young daughter. Cell reception seems to be OK. There is wifi, security system & cable TV In some cases we'd appreciate the sitter coming a day before we leave so we can explain and show them everything. However if our flights don't leave until the afternoon or evening coming the same day (early 9ish AM) is also OK. If you do not have a car we can discuss whether or not ours is available for your use.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our little family consist of 3 dogs (1 small, cuddley loud mutt (Beaux - or BoBo - age ??), 2 labs (Pita - 7, and Darcie - 4 who both love to be snuggled). Darcie and Bo are rescue dogs and Pita is purebred. Darcie is a lab/hunter mix we think while BoBo is small and we still haven't decided what his genetics may be. Pita is a purebred lab which we brought home when she was 5 weeks old. Generally remain in house and are let out into the backyard multiple times a day.Darcie, Pita and Beaux do enjoy being brushed once or twice a week. They are fed twice a day. Usually around 8:00 - 8:30 AM & 6 - 7:30 in the evening. Darcie & Pita eat on the back patio outside the kitchen eating area. Bowels are placed with some distance between them. Beaux is fed in the kitchen.
Dogs cannot be let out freely in this neighborhood without being on a leash. They will be needing a good walk twice a day - unless you take them to the dog park then one other time (just before you close up the house at night) would be required. They do receive a treat each evening before we retire for the night. We do let them out into the back yard multiple times a day. They each have their own distinctive way of letting you know they want back in. Treats are always given at your discretion. The number of times they go out during the day is entirely up to you. They're smart - sometimes they'll tell you they want out just to turn around less than a minute later wanting in - they're hoping to score a treat. Again, that is up to you. At bedtime - Darcie and Pita are put in the utility room with the night light on. Beaux can either sleep with you (your choice) or he should also be placed in the utility room. As we have only been in this house for less than a week (today is September 21st), and living within a close (area wise) community is a totally new thing for us all (we've lived on acreage for 30 years) and we are learning to adjust - that means all of us. So, some of the routine things will, I'm sure also slightly change.
