Lovin' My Small Home
Yesterday I had a great relaxed day at home. July had been a tough month at work, but all issues have now been resolved. So as I "recovered from July" and relaxed, I just became completely "in love" with my house. I told myself, "I'm never selling", and "I love this place!" I was so content.
It's funny 'cause when things are going so-so in my life, or the place gets totally out of control with mediocre housekeeping, I begin dreaming of bigger places with more space. Then when I get unfinished projects done*, get things cleaned up, and get my work/personal life in good shape, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY HOUSE.
How about you? Do you blame the size of your perfectly wonderful house for the other issues in your life? And do you let comparisons with larger homes around you make you feel defensive and apologetic about your own home? Or is the size of your house truly a limitation on your life? Let's hear it for small houses!
I have been clearing projects off my "To Do" list which have been left over from a stressful kitchen remodel done in March/April. Such as building a countertop over my front loaders and painting it. Painting a free-standing cabinet a beautiful blue. Finding a carpet guy to properly attach the carpet to the threshhold instead of lapping it into the kitchen by one extra foot like my General Contractor did. Finishing these projects has been a relief to me.
