10 Things I Would Fix In My Home

(if I had the time and money…and I owned the house-lol)

  1. No carpet. I would remove all of the carpet in this house and have wood floors. I’ve had both and no carpet is much more sanitary-especially with pets.
  2. Electricity: The electrical outlets in this house need some major updating-I believe it is the original and I only have 2 outlets that include the 3 prong plug-great!
  3. Even floor: I believe the house has settled-duh!The floors sink in at places and need to be leveled.
  4. Drapes: I need some major window treatments (drapes, curtains, and valences) for the whole house. I just can’t bring myself to do it here.
  5. Trees: I wish I could cut down the 2 apple trees, the 2 pine trees, and the walnut tree. The stuff I have to pick up is such a hassle and the apples don’t turn out good anyway. I have plenty of other trees all over the yard. I like trees that are beautiful and only produce leaves that fall-lol!
  6. Outside: I have 1 and a 1/2 acres and I would love to have my back yard fenced in. Patch, my 11 year old dalmatian, would love this too.
  7. Multicolored walls: The walls in this house are multicolored shades of white, off white…The whole house needs to be re-painted professionally. Not paint here and there and plaster there and here-aahhhh!
  8. Open/Shut Doors: The whole house needs new doors to the rooms. The door handles are not secure and you might shut a door and never get back in-hehe. Plus the doors are the original and are tearing/pealing off which can cause splinters or be a danger for my dog, Patch.
  9. Vinyl Floor: My kitchen floor is the original 1970’s yellow floor, I’m sure of it. It has torn places everywhere and you can see the concrete directly underneath. My favorite color is yellow-but when I see my floor-I wanna barf-hehe! I need a new kitchen floor!
  10. Earth: The earth/ground outside needs leveling and holes need filled. It is a danger zone in many spots. I just avoid those places, because my feet don’t work well on stairs or in holes.

My house is really a great house for the price compared to most in my area, but this sums up what I really need to do: NEED TO MOVE!

10 Things to Do Before You Get Married

This is gonna be a hard one-lol! IMO-Marriage is the number one reason for divorce-ROFL! Some of these are serious and some are just for fun! My post has become more of a things to do checklist for a spouse-to-be. Maybe I am just thinking out loud for myself here-HA! Enjoy!

  1. Get your degree: or get as much education as you can
  2. In-Laws: Remember that your best option with in-laws is to marry an orphan…LOL
  3. Live with the person: to see how it works-you can find a lot out about your relationship by doing this
  4. Personal Hygiene: Find out your significant other’s personal hygiene. How often do they tidy their home? Wash dishes? Vacuum? People are either messy or tidy in general. Which one are they, and can you live with it?
  5. Children: Discuss children. Find out if you both agree on having or not having children. Also discuss discipline methods-do you both agree?
  6. Watch how the other treats his/her family: Much of their personality is probably bits and pieces that come from the way they were raised, and how their family acts. All families have issues, but make sure that you are comfortable with the closeness, or distance, of their family to your new lives.
  7. Pets: If you love pets, make sure you and your significant other agree about this and how your pets will be part of the family! You gotta love dogs to be with me-lol
  8. Hobbies/Fun Time: can you have some separate time without feeling guilty? Or without pressure from the other? I know he can. not sure that I can-hehe!
  9. Realize and know: that you can never change someone-they are who they are. So be it!
  10. Toilet Paper: Make sure you and your significant other agree on: Over the top or from behind or on the roll at all? ROFL
