Den and I had always hoped to move up house wise but maybe we should be thinking more about moving down after the kids are out of college. I don't know. I'm not usually wishy-washy about our lives but I'm not sure what to do. So we are going to try to connect with this house and make it a home. We have never really left our mark here. This house has been more like trying to fix someone's screw up or find a way to deal with a mess that we have uncovered than trying to make it a home.
When we first moved in every inch of this house was covered in WALLPAPER! In the kitchen alone there were 4, yes 4, different wallpapers and borders. Everywhere you looked there was wallpaper and forest green carpet. I'm color blind and I could see that it was a disaster. So I embarked on pulling down wallpaper for a very long time. I painted all of the walls off-white. I think we are at the point where we can add some color. I think we are going to get an interior decorating book and go from there. Yes, I need help with this.
A lot of our furniture needs to be replaced so I'm going to repaint and then replace things slowly. I have big plans people now all I need is big money!
We also have a bunch of things to do outside too. I'm trying to convince Den that we should do as much as possible before Vegas. Actually, it's more like bribery.
That is our neighbor's ugly ass fence. And that is the bird-bath that the raccoons like to tip over. I think the fence needs to come down. It's his fence and he is kind of a brute so he will probably put up a fight and we will put a new one next to it. Then he will decide that he likes it and take the old one down. He will also report us a few times. That's what he likes to do. Other than that we actually get along with them. Well, the other day he said he was taking OUR fence down around our pool because he wanted to open the backyard up. Ummmm no, we legally have to have a fence around the pool. If we come up with the money for a new privacy fence, the police will be here. Remember me saying this. No but really, we do get along with them.
So we are going to try and reconnect with our house just not the people that live around us! I'll take more pictures
Maybe it would be easier to move,
