I initially had a plan to write a fun post but I think I have to save it for tomorrow because I am in the midst of some hardcore adulting and realizing how not fun it is. We bought our house about a year and a half ago and of course things are starting to fall apart because it’s not like a brand new house. It was built in 1950. The previous owners and maybe the ones before them made a few upgrades but mostly to the outside.
For example, our roof is only 5 years old which is fantastic and our 2-car garage is pretty much brand new. However, the inside parts could use some work. Our garbage disposal died a few months ago and we didn’t really see it necessary to get fixed because we have a dishwasher but now its leaking out of the bottom so we can’t ignore it anymore. Yesterday we replaced our bathtub spout and the trip lever because I’m pretty the type determined not to pay someone if we can help it. Luckily that was easy to do thanks to YouTube.
Which leads me to, what did we do before YouTube?? Seriously. I have never been more grateful for a technological advance in my life. DIY videos save you so much money! My husband was so ready to call a plumber and pay hundreds when it ended up only costing $60 and like an hour of our time. Plus, we learned a new skill! It doesn’t get any better than that. Some things though, unfortunately, you just need a professional. Like I want new carpet and hardwood in the whole downstairs of our house. I’m sure YouTube would be helpful but I do not have that kind of patience.
In the midst of all this, there’s also taxes that need to be filed. We owed the stupid government big time last year so we change some things around. Of course, we still owe money this year. We can’t win…
Can I please go back to being a dependent? Life was such a breeze. Please and Thank you. That ends my adulting rant for today. Never grow up people! Or at least don’t buy a house. Stay in apartments where getting stuff fixed is part of your rent, hahaha.
