Painting the house

by gbsmith4

For the past week or so, we’ve been getting our house painted.  The wood stuff on the outside, and a variety of touch-up jobs on the inside.

Unfortunately, it’s one of those chores that’s a necessity, otherwise the house eventually starts to look rundown.  Even worse, since it’s really all maintenance work, I feel like we’re flushing money down the toilet: in another week, the workers will be gone, we’ll pull up to the house…and nothing noticeable will have changed.

There have been times I’ve enjoyed being a homeowner.  But, if I had to do it all over again, I’d probably buy a nice apartment where someone else had to do all the upkeep.
