New Homeowners Stuff
We have spent the past two weeks fixin' up and adding stuff to our new house. Haunting second hand furniture shops and hardware stores. Goodwill and other thrift stores. Both giving and receiving.
We donated carloads of decorative bird houses and artificial flowers. And duplicate appliances that also came with the house.
I have already crawled under the house to run additional phone wiring. And on the roof to inspect and patch the shingles. The difference here is fixing once and moving on. Unlike the RV, when I fixed something, then moved the RV and fixed it or something else again. No springs or axles or tires under this house. No antennas and moving rooms to maintain from above either. An easier life in so many ways. Did I mention the dishwasher?
Two weeks till we wing our way to the Land of Enchantment. Ireland, not New Mexico.
Must buy some green socks. And find a T shirt that reads, "Kiss Me, I'm Jewish."
