Didn't I tell you?? A money pit!!
Thursday, July 12, 2007
Have you ever seen the movie MONEY PIT with Shelly Long and Tom Hanks? It's my feel-good go-to movie whenever I'm feeling down. Why? Because I know exactly how they feel. We live in this tiny little house owned by a family member, and it's about 100 years old and I swear, it feels like it has that much square footage to live in. When we moved in, the termites were holding hands to keep the floor in place. Well, eventually even the termites bailed and we had to replace 400 square feet of house. And I don't mean a little bit of replacement... I'm talking about gutting out the entire floor (foundation, walls, flooring, ceiling, windows, etc... EVERYTHING!) and literally starting over. It has taken forever to get this done, and now we've put more into renovating the house than what the house is actually worth! But in the end, half the house is brand new and the other house is a century old. Not too sure what the termites are doing on the other side, but if they are holding hands, I hope they'll stay put for a bit longer.
