New House Excitement

Things we're excited about with the new house:
  • dishwasher
    I've been hand-washing dishes for the past year
  • washing machine/dryer
    no more trying to get quarters, dragging the laundry to the laundry room, waiting for it if it's busy
  • counter space
    our kitchen has so little counter space that we frequently rest stuff (like the toaster) on the garbage can lid for that extra little space. We have to put the toaster on a shelf when it's not in use.
  • cabinet space
  • no longer paying rent
  • room for kitties to run around & play
  • air conditioning/good heating
    our living room stays warm enough, but the bedroom doesn't get enough heat. And our portable AC unit does a mediocre job of cooling off the place.
  • 2-car garage
    finally a place for both of us to park! No more street parking, no more tickets because of street cleaning, no more dirt and dust from parking outside.
