My husband and I have been married for over 29 years and are living in the same house for that same time. We have been planning out our lives together for a while now. We know what we want, whether it’s a new home, a new job, or something in between. A home is the most important place in our lives, so we have decided to make it our primary residence.
Since we’re both working professionals, we’ve decided to create an “at home” office space in the garage. We’ve been looking for a space to rent together for over a year and we were shocked and impressed by what we found. Before we came into our new home, we were both in the same field, so we were able to have a lot of common areas. We each had our own space, and that’s what we wanted.
Well, you can probably guess that there was a lot of stuff we didnt want to share. So in the end, we decided to leave many of the common areas for the next person to have, and we ended up creating our own rooms. The good thing about this is that we didnt have to pay a lot of money (at least not in the beginning, since it was our first home together) and it didn’t feel like a huge sacrifice.
It wasn’t a sacrifice, it was just a temporary solution. Also, we had to get rid of the clutter, the clothes, the junk, the furniture, the crap, and of course, the food. And we’re still cleaning up, so hopefully this will be fixed soon.
My point is that even though we were able to create our own rooms, we didn’t have to do it in our own living space, which was great. It was nice to have a place that felt like home when we moved in. We even had a couple of our own “rooms”, which were the first time we’d had our own rooms and the first time we’d ever had our own personal space.
Also, my favorite part was this time of the year: spring cleaning! In addition to all the things that we had to keep tidied up and put away, we also had to wash, organize, and declutter our entire home. It was so exciting to take inventory of all the things we owned. We realized that we had so many toys, clothes, and personal items that we have outgrown, and that we had to take care of that.
This is the best part. We have a lot of stuff in our home that we use every day. We’ve grown up with toys, clothes, and other items from my own childhood that we have to keep. If you look at your junk pile it’s clear that you have a lot of stuff that you no longer need. This is the first time in my life that I’ve truly owned a home that I felt like I could run to for a quick pick-me-up.
I think it’s great that you have the time of your life. There are many people who never get to experience that. At the same time, though, we’re always aware that we never get to have everything we’ve ever wanted, and that we never get to have the things we’ve always wanted. You’re doing this for a reason, and for a good reason, and it’s what brings out the best in you.
I think you can probably agree that we know these things in life. They are a constant, running through all our lives and they are the things that make us who we are. To get them, we have to work for them. The good thing about this, though, is that when we find them, they are so easy to find. It wasn’t hard to find The Time of My Life, even though I only have a couple years to see it.
