So I decided to spend some of the money I’m getting back from the feds and the state. And it’s my mom’s fault.
Friday night, my mom unexpectedly showed up for a 12 hour visit. Seeing as she lives 13 hours away, it’s a long story involving flight delays and weather and redirected planes. But that’s not the point. The point is that she was in my house and saw it in its natural state.
And she means well, but she commented about how the place is slowly getting there, but I clearly have some work to do.
And she’s right. There are still many bare walls. There are boxes in the dining room that belong in the attic. They aren’t in the attic because I don’t have a ladder because I haven’t wanted to spend the money. So after she left, I bought a ladder. I also started looking for furniture again, and have decided to finally hang some of the wall art that I have. Baby steps.
I’m not going to just go out and buy the furniture I need to fill the spaces. I’m going to continue to wait until I find the right pieces. But I should at least look.
And maybe the next time she visits, the place will be even more organized. I’ve been in the house almost a year. It’s time!
