Homeowner's Aches and Pains...

If money was not an issue, I would love a new house! Don't get me wrong, I do like the one we currently live in, it has just been screaming for some TLC lately. The ice storm did not treat us kindly, so our backyard is a wreck. Our trees have cost us $500.00 so far with about $1500.00 left to go. Two of our three fences need replacing and the entire backyard will need new sod... which is another $500.00. We are definately needing to paint the outside of the house this year and we have to start a "new roof" fund. That's just the outside. Inside, we have to replace two exterior doors... and the list goes on and on. YEECH! I am grateful to own a home and Richie and I aren't new to the idea of a little work. It just seems that sometimes we get swallowd with "To Do" lists. I suppose there is much more to be thankful for than there is to complain about... I'm just saying, if I had lots of money, I'd love a new home so I wouldn't have to worry about this one so much!

I hear ya! THe house we had in our old town was built in the early 70's. We were FOREVER fixing something. At least in the end when we sold it, we made a nice profit!
