One Year

We got the keys to the house exactly one year ago today.

Since then, just about everything in th place has been fixed, replaced, updated, cleaned, painted, polished and/or changed. And we still aren't done!

Congratulations! But being a parent, being a homeowner means you're never "done"

thanks for your heart and words. i've been reading you for about three months now and don't know what i'd do without your intelligence and insight. the msm is a vast wilderness of decaying grey matter. the folks pushing the obamacan coup are truly despicable and not a little scary.

anywyas...good luck with the new home. we are new to the homeowning scene and have an old house as well. and of course the fixing up stuff is inevitable.

we are working class gals and see Hillary as a real voice for the people in the U.S. the obama camp is unravelling more each day. the numbers are less and less with him. Zbig B. and company's candidate is grasping at straws, and most of obama's followers really do not have clue.

the revolution is not being televised.

Congratulations. And thanks so much for the privilege of reading your journal and not complaining about my spelling when I comment.

It's a pleasure to read your blog. You provide one of only corners of the blogosphere where one can find serious analysis. And you never disappoint. (I may not agree to some posts, but it doesn't detract from their quality.)

House: you do have to stop yourself otherwise you are never done.

Anglachel, congratulations! As the previous poster said, there is no end to what can be done -- I have limited myself now to buying fresh flowers for the house. We are about 8 years in our current house and this is the longest I have lived in one house since I got married and started my life away from my parents (I am Indian and moved from my parents' house after 23+ beautiful years to my own house with my wonderful husband now of 22 years). We just celebrated our 20 year anniversary of coming to the US on March 26 and on that memorable day, we drove past all the houses we lived in starting in Culpeper, Charlottesville, Manassas, Centreville -- all in VA and now in Silver Spring, MD.

Enjoy your fruits of labor and thanks for sharing.

Glad you're here!

Thanks for all the good thoughts, folks!

We're cooking a special dinner and drinking champagne tonight in honor of the anniversary.

Shainzona, as another friend of mine said - you haven't bought a house, you've adopted a life-long hobby.

lakelobos - no, there is no stopping once you start. I am resigned to my new life-long hobby. ;-)

pm317, thank you for sharing your delightful story! I wish you and your husband many, many more happy years with each other, no matter where you live.
