We've lived in apartments our entire adult life. Apartments are great because whenever there is a problem you call the front office, and after complaining for awhile someone comes to fix what ever it is that is driving you nuts.
We are renting a house in Clarenville and our landlords live two hours away. It is a fairly new house with very few issues. Still, doing things like taking care of a yard, doing minor repair work, etc., gives us a small taste of what it will be like to actually own a house for ourselves.
I have mixed feelings about homeownership. It sounds so scarily permanent, but the idea of doing whatever I want to a little house on a cute little plot of land we can call our own does inspire some flights of imagination. I dream of white walls, and little reading nooks, a beautiful garden, and sunny windows.
But for now, it is great letting someone else deal with the big homeowner headaches and just enjoying having a temporary space to love up. How I adore this small, blocky, hodge-podgy house!
