It seems like every time we work on the condo, something else gets gets shortly thereafter. First we moved in (major accomplishment). The next weekend we painted. Upon completion, I thought “Phew, we’re done!”.
But the following weekend we ended putting up the art. Again, I thought “Yay – now this place is done!”.
A month later we decided to paint the 4th floor. Upon completion, “Yay, the place looks great! Nothing left to do.”
A few weeks later, a new dishwasher gets installed. “Now this place is complete!”
Last weekend, the washing machine literally imploded (spewing white chunks of plastic all over our clothes). But today, I’m optimistic! Not only are we having a new washer and dryer delivered and installed this morning, but we’re having an electrician come by and (finally) install the two ceilings fans we purchased; one for the living room, one for the master bedroom.
I’m sure I’ll come home tonight and admire all of our new home features and think “Everything is finally done!”
But then we’ll want to replace the carpets. Or install hardwood flooring on the stairway and in the halls. What’s that? Some touch up paint? Hmmm, we’ve already replaced the dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer, now the refrigerator is looking a bit tired and this “Cash for Appliances” program the government is offering won’t last forever.
And who picked out that light fixture?
What 1970′s whore house did those drapes come from?
Did somebody say hot tub?
ugh – my head is spinning.
