First Home Projects

Wednesday, June 16th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Having not yet moved into the new place, it’s a bit odd to own an empty house. So we’ve been going there each evening to bond with our new abode. The dogs saw it for the first time yesterday and immediately fell in love with the yard (they christened it promptly). I think it will take some time to connect with the house and get to know it.

Tonight marked the official start of our first projects as home owners. While I walked around our yard watering the plants and flowers and fighting to get the hoses wound back up (I want a hose crank or whatever they’re called), Jen took a razor blade to all the windows that had been painted shut. She succeeded in opening all but one window.

It’s all at once an intimidating, overwhelming, challenging, and exciting feeling — this new adventure of owning our home.

Yesterday the imposing work that’s been going on around the apartment building hit a whole new level with a giant dent in the right fender of my car. To my surprise, I’ve been pretty zen about the whole thing so far. I showed the damage to the property manager right away and have left a message for the building owner.
