Our House

Exactly a year ago (Saturday) we moved into our first house. Since then we have enjoyed the privilege of a mortgage, property tax, utility bills, and insurance. However, we have truthfully enjoyed having a little grass to mow (I love mowing the lawn and wish we had a bigger one), a mini garden, having a basement to throw all the stuff that we don't know what to do with, having an ensuite!!!!, a nice kitchen with new appliances (a dishwasher!!!), a fireplace (which has really saved us through so many power outages), hardwood (well, laminate really) floors that are so easy to clean that spills never matter!, walls that we can paint in any colour that we want, a bedroom that fits our king size bed no problemo, a garage for our car so we never have to scrape the ice off of it!!...Good times. I also love our neighbourhood. I can walk to the post office, video store or get groceries at any time. Our neighbours are friendly and it feels so safe to walk around the block at any time. So, happy anniversary to our house. I feel so fortunate (and maybe a bit guilty?)to have something so nice.
