tour of homes ? Maybe I should tour just my own home….
I am just so glad to live in the beautiful home I have right now. It just doesn’t get any better than this. The reason I say this is because today we toured a parade of homes event , not all that far from where we live. The homes were all pretty pricey and out of our budget(or should I say spending plan) So we looked at the details of the homes , some with 4 car garages, 5 or 6 bedrooms, a full basement made into living and sleeping areas one even with a home theater. What I didn’t see was a kitchen that looked like honey and I would be comfortable in. How about spacious even enough for when all of our family comes and everyone helps cook. I did make note that with the right height chairs by our cutout from the kitchen to our dining area, that the space there for seating would get more use. Our kitchen is the heart of our home, and it gets way more use as far as I can see than any of those new designs will when the family moves in. They certainly will have to be working more hours to afford the mortgage and to fill the closets in each room, especially the his and her closets for the master suite. I understand that sometimes when honey hits his head on yet another low ceiling or doesn’t have enough space for his larger sized clothes in our one door closet , that yeah those things might need improvement. But our home has quite a bit of character, charm and out of the ordinary little extras such as a front and back staircase that goes to our upper level. We laughed at the shower which was large enough to accommodate the entire family with space and shower heads and yet each bedroom had it’s own private full baths. All I could think of was how much more cleaning would I need to do and how would I have time to do it since I would be working more hours than I care to at this point in my life. Did I get ideas ? sure. It was fun and interesting to see new and even old ideas coming together to create a new/old look. Do I want to move? no. Does honey?maybe ,but certainly not without me of course. So just for right now Ill stay here. I don’t have to then shop to fill the closets or figure out how to decorate . Well, I’m going to move into my kitchen now to help create one more great meal with what we already have, wearing what I already own,and using the tools to do my cooking that yes I also already have. Life is good, I am breathing in and breathing out.
