rikter8: Im excited! I bought my first house, and am moving the end of the month. No more renting. No more spiders that bark or chase me through the duplex. No more neighbors with the stereo cranked at 11:00PM on tuesdays. I can FINALLY work on my cars and engines without the neighborhood complaining. (big block with open headers - who knew) I can have my garden and grow my own veggies. I can work on my furniture projects and not have neighbors complain about the sawdust. I can stoke up a HOT fire in the wintertime and invite snuggle bunnies over for a hot cocoa by the fire. Ahhhhh....... I am Happy. This week shopping for lighting, ceiling fans and paint. Then pricing 3 new Anderson windows for a beautiful view of the countryside. Next year, putting an extention on the deck. Anyone have similar excitement as I?
