Excuse me while I go put my head between my legs and breathe into a bag for the next ten minutes.
Because this house saved my life on one occasion, and my sanity on numerous other occasions. It’s seen me through the hardest and most exhausting experiences of my life, and also the most fun ones. I’ve learned innumerable lessons, bought enough tools, lumber and drywall to supply a small country, and sacrificed things like showering on a regular basis to bring some projects on this house to fruition.
And… that’s enough waxing philosophic about it. Because on one hand, I love this house. On the other hand, can you say miniature donkeys? Yeah. The benefits… like building a home for MysteryMan and I to call ours… outweigh that constant low-grade urge to hyperventilate. Almost.
So: To the 10% of DIYdiva readers who are Toledoians, if you know anyone looking to buy, please refer them to here:
Because you had to know that I’d create a website to sell this house, and that it wouldn’t be just another lame real estate site, didn’t you?
(Although Internet Explorer users… the slideshow doesn’t work for you, which is lame. Although you should be using Firefox anyway. But I’ll be sacrificing a few more hours of sleep this week to fix that little glitch.)
So here’s to washing the permanent spots of paint out of my hair, having time to update this website, and getting 8 consecutive hours of sleep sometime in the next week!
