Wish List

Since I can't seem to come up with anything else to write about except for the new pad, I figured why not continue in that vain for a few more decades. I've got nothing else, people.

So, let's discuss a wishlist for the house! I will even include links to items so that you can purchase them and send them to me as a surprise!

In no particular order:

A hot tub. There probably isn't enough room to actually have a pool AND much backyard space leftover at our new house, and since I don't plan on being in this house forever anyway, we should probably put in a hot tub to tide me over until I CAN have a pool, don't you think?

A fire pit. Because it totally gets cold outside here.

A big green egg. I don't know wtf this is, actually. But if it gets Mr. FGD to shut the hell up about it, I'm all for it.

Normal looking door handles. I didn't think this was so much to ask. Our new house was built in 2003. Tell me, who the fuck used brass for door handles, or anything else for that matter, after 1989? Good god. It's a good thing there's only, like, 30 freaking doors in this new place.

A new door for the fireplace. See previous entry. More brass, people.

Outdoor dining set. I need a place to chow. Because I'm so outdoorsy, and I love heat. I especially love sweating during a good meal.

New wall sconces. Current ones also date back to 1989.

New bathroom vanity lights. The current ones are very apartment/builder-grade, e.g. $9.99 at Kmart. Do I look like a $9.99 Kmart special to you?

I'll stop there. I don't want to overwhelm you.

Thanks in advance for the housewarming gifts! My readers are the best.

Me Casa

I think most of you know this by now, but for those of you that don't, we bought a house in the community that we're in currently. It's not my beloved dream house with the pool/firepit in the backyard, or Mr. FGD's dream house near the beach, and for those of you who lied and said not to worry, something better would come along, you were wrong.

But enough of being a downer. We're buying a bigger place! Woot! I'm not posting any pictures yet because it kinda sucks right now. It's only 6 years old, so nothing is majorly wrong, except for the current owners' clutter and style problem. Nothing a few professional painters and cleaners and flooring people can't handle, I suppose. Let's hope, anyway.

That's all I've got. I'm hoping life will be a little less stressful now that we've decided on a place and found a tenant to rent out our current place. Moving will blow, but at least we're moving because we want to, and not because we have to.

I'm going to miss my neighbors though. Here's to hoping that I'm not about to live next to some redneck gun-loving, backwards NRA-ers. No offense to any of my readers, of course.
