Condo Improvements

October 16, 2012

Being a football coach at the high school level in our area doesn’t pay gobs of money. In fact, you only get paid if you complete the season. CC gets paid pennies to the hour. He puts in so much time. This is why we are grateful for the teaching job!

This past weekend we were discussing how this years stipend check would be spent. A good portion of it is going to go into our house. We even spent an hour at Home Depot picking out some new light fixtures for the kitchen and walk in closets. Our big project over Thanksgiving break will be to finally install drawer and cabinet pulls in our kitchen, something the last owners never did.

Home improvement conversations always seem to go one of two ways, a) we agree on nothing and end up fighting or b) we agree on everything but can’t figure out how we’ll pay for it. We did some big projects prior to me moving in with him, since then it’s been small stuff. Just details. We want to finish the make over we started on the upstairs bath, we both want new kitchen counters. The spare bedroom needs to be painted a different color and recently, we agreed that we both hated the color we panted the upstairs bathroom 3 years ago.

I have a wish list of things i would like to do and a honey-do list of things that need to be done (which usually ends up being done by CC’s friend JR). Home ownership is a bitch. But the benefits outweigh the negative. I love that our space is “our space”. It’s casual and low maintenance, just like us. It just still needs some TLC from time to time.
