But trapped behind multiple boxes and exhausted from the heat. Yuck.
We are moved in, but have been finding problems the way you do when you move into a new place. The most annoying? They didn’t tape the pipe joints downstairs so they are almost completely rusted shut and are not attached to the wall.
Other than that, still alive and kicking…luckily it feels like today is going to be cooler than hotter so I might actually touch up the paint in the various rooms today quickly to get that done with. Radiators are a pain in the ass to paint behind.
In the past 3 days, I have had 3 milestones of various size. The first is silly and only means anything to me as this is my 100th posting here.
The second, is that I am a homeowner. We have already made our mark on the house by ripping down wallpaper and writing on the walls. Already have had the first drinks, the first family visit, and the first cooking in the house.
The third, is that today is my birthday. Today, I am 30…and I had a bunch of wonderful people come out last night to participate in a scavenger hunt that I made (apparently very hard) and then drink with me. They even bought me a ride on the carousel on the Greenway. I have not had a great year…but I think the tide might be turning. I feel blessed and loved and happy…and that hasn’t happened in a long time.
Today, I am going to go play skee ball, because everyone should do that as much as possible. And then I shall go to my Grandma’s house for dinner, presents, children running around, cake, and loveliness. Yeah!
Today, I have become a homeowner.
