There's been a little makeover happening at my place. Did you sense my crabbiness and impatient nature?
You'd never believe I spent a WhOLE WEEk without a sink and was inconvenienced enough to eat meals on the go nearly three additional times...more sarcasm you say?
Since we took over this 1-owner home four years ago - 1958 and I haven't always been friends. At times we acted to spite one another and yet other times this old house was my best friend after a day of working real estate and seeing what other people pay monthly to live in their not-so-58-McMansions.
My boyfriend really outdid himself this time...
