The house we are living in is not my favorite.. For one it's old (not antique old, just 70's old)and has ugly wallpaper!! When I start missing my old home (and it wasn't even ours, just a rental, but oh I got attached!) I have to remind myself that there were things I didn't like there either.. So I figured I would write down a few thoughts:
I miss my 200 year old home, but I DON'T miss only 1 bathroom
I miss my Viking propane stove that I could fit two cookie sheets side by side in the oven. I DON'T miss having to pay for propane.
I miss the wide plank floors in the house. I DON'T miss the cracks between the planks that cold air would creep up through in the winter!
I miss my walk in closet. I DON'T miss the earwigs.
I miss my HUGE (approx. 600 sq. ft.) living room with built in bookcase and cabinets. I DON'T miss washing all 9 windows in there with the individual glass panes.
I miss Tim's pager going off in the middle of the night. I DON'T miss....hmmm not sure.. I enjoyed when Tim was on the FD.. :)
I miss my 200 year old home. I DON'T miss having to heat it in the winter!!
I miss our dog, Trigger! I DON'T miss the fireworks on Perry Rd. that would go off YEAR round, causing said dog to jump through glass doors and windows.
I miss living so near to many people we know. I DON'T miss coming home to neighborhood boys in the tree in our front yard.
And of course I miss the family and friends we left behind, but am enjoying the family and friends we have here!! And so I shall end my ramblings with this: There will be no perfect place to live until we get to Heaven!!
