Everyone talks about how wonderful home ownership is and how blessed Steven and I are to own our own home at such a young age. Please don't misunderstand, I am truly grateful for our home and love it! However, I never realized one of the "gifts" of home ownership was always having something to clean or having something to fix!
Apartment living truly is so easy. Small spaces, no yardwork, landlords who complete all necessary repairs. Oh the good old days when I didn't know how much it cost to fix a heater or build a new deck! Those days were almost as good as the times I could call Daddy everytime my car broke down!
So now I'm cleaning every day, constantly spending money for basic repairs to my home, and trying to learn how to cook all at the same time (tales of cooking disasters to come!)
I tell ya, the life of a young wife can be trying. Always a new challenge to teach me a life lesson. I keep telling myself I'll get it together one of these days. Feel free to share any pointers to help me make it through. In the mean time - I'm off to do some laundry!
