House Firsts: Stuff We've Done So Far

My dad once built a car with his own two hands, but I have always called the landlord at the first hint of breakdown. I've never been particularly handy, & I think it's fair to say that Mike hasn't been, either. It's why we thought we'd always be apartment people.

But then we bought this house, so... I guess we're house people now. Which means we've got to at least try to be handy.

It's going OK, I guess? I live in fear of things going wrong because I don't know how to do anything, in terms of, like, fixing or creating or solving. But we're relatively smart people, & there's a YouTube video for everything, right? God bless the Internet.

I was perfectly content to rent for my entire life, the way people in bigger cities often do. No, I wasn't falling prey to the "You have to own a house to be an adult" thing society tries to foist upon us.

But then we got pregnant. We thought we were starting a family, & while it would've been perfectly fine to have a baby & even a toddler in our duplex apartment, we thought, "Hey, should we look for a house after all?" We started to look... & then we found out we weren't pregnant anymore, & then the pandemic hit, so we stayed put.
