The joys of homeownership

Ah, the American Dream.   Owning your own home.  Am I the only one who thinks this isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?   Maybe it depends on your house.  

A couple of hours of HGTV and I start resenting my own house.   “If only…” “the floors were different”, “the appliances were newer”, “the roof didn’t leak”, it didn’t have termites”, “the walls were painted”, blah, blah, blah…

Ok, done complaining.   Get to work.

So, now that the termites are eradicated, the stump in the front yard is coming out.  Yeah!  Next, the sprinkler system needs repair and then I’m off to start on the bedroom.   Now there’s a project that’s near and dear to my heart.   Remember, I have my chair in there now, and the new bedding we got (thanks, Mom!) doesn’t exactly match, but the chair stays.  Color on the walls, and the recessed ceiling, new ceiling fan, some decoration on the walls, maybe some curtains…it’s going to be beautiful!  and relaxing!  and peaceful!   Wouldn’t this make a great anniversary present to each other??  Oh, yeah.
