i realized it's been a long time since i've shown you some house pictures. and i never talk about it. truth is, we're still working on it. and you all were right when you said that a house takes forever to update. it's slowly, but surely, coming along.
i still have a lot i want to do to it. nothing major, except for the yards. those are the most major. our front lawn is digusting and we look like white trash. our backyard is just one big mess. i wish we had money to pay someone to come in, and really go to town. i want a backyard that is awesome for entertaining. i'm not sure i'll ever have that. everything is so expensive!
the other stuff i want to do isn't major- but it costs money. and i'll be dammed if actually owning this house isn't also owning my whole entire paycheck. sometimes it seems like things were easier when i had a ton of cash to burn. but i guess the grass is always greener.... right?
what i do know is that this house has been a lot of work. and it's hard to truly relax in a home that you constantly want to update and fix. it's also difficult for me mentally i think to enjoy everything about home owning, when i don't enjoy the home yet. it's like i can't let go of the fact that stuff still needs to get done. i mean, i REALLY want to have a party. i really want to have people over, but i feel like we can't do that yet. and i'm kind of tired of waiting. you know i'm not the patient kind.
anyway, most of the pics are still works in progress. nothing really is "finished.." is it ever? but here they are!
