Home and Dry
I closed on my house two years ago today. It was a long, complicated search, like most of them are I suppose. The first day I saw it, I thought the landscaping was perfect. No work needed there. But the interior? Oh, my. You don’t even want to know. It took a lot of time, money and labor to get it turned around but I love it now. I was fortunate to have help from several good friends. When I walk around the house, I see their input in every detail…large and small. It occurred to me today that Jake is the main reason I bought this place instead of a loft or a condo. He spent the day outside with Danny and me, lounging on the grass while we worked in the yard. Later, we cooked brats on the grill in the backyard. Oh, and by the way, I start my new job on Monday. How much better can things be? As Spalding Gray said, a perfect moment.
