No home renovations today. Rain has been putting a wedge in my plans for a couple days now. So today I’ve had to think of something else to do at work, besides working
of course. I instead wanna talk about things I’m looking for in my new place! I’ve made a little list. I like lists.
1) Something Newer
So to clarify, living in Canada, especially the west coast, the oldest homes around me are only 50ish years old. That means I want something preferably only 10ish years old. Water tanks and central air are less likely needing to be replaced and the wiring for the place is up to code. Saves me so much trouble
unlike my current mess of a house.
2) A Yard
It doesn’t have to be acreage, just something for maybe a berry bush and a maybe a lawn chair. I’m probably going to dig up most of the grass anyway. It’s such a water suck. I don’t understand how people can have such green, perfect yards. They look so, flat.
3) Walking Distance to Work
My car died awhile back, as you may know from my bus adventures, and that makes getting to work expensive if it’s not close by. Plus, it’s the only way I get exercise anymore as I am the laziest person I have ever met.Walking has saved me a lot of money though, which is a blessing in a way.
4) Somewhat Relaxed Strata
I LOVE DECORATING! Especially for holidays like Halloween! I had someone complain one year cause I was “too into the holiday”. What kind of a complaint is that?
I’m still upset. I want to be able to enjoy my place and not get in trouble, like come on..
5) Pet Restrictions
I have a cat and some places, even if I own it, won’t let me have him. Shadow is vocal, and I get that some people have allergies but pets do way less damage than kids in my opinion. I am not getting rid of him.
That’s really the biggest group of things I would like out of my new place. Anything I’m missing? Let me know! Anyways…
Thanks for reading!
