Thursday 13 v. 49

13 of Carmen's Favorite Things About the New Home (Pictures will come as soon as the painting is done and the boxes are out of the way.)
  1. All the Room! Pooh and I don't know what to do with all this space!
  2. The Master Bedroom. It's my favorite room in the house.
  3. The Vaulted Ceilings. Both bedrooms have them.
  4. The Lack of Stairs. Previously, I had 3 flights of stairs to go up with groceries, etc.
  5. Parking. I have 2 parking spots straight in front of my home. No shoveling out my spot and having someone else take it. No visitors in my spot. It's all mine! Mwha-ha-ha!
  6. Being Less Than 5 Minutes from the Gym. I could almost walk there. But I won't.
  7. Not Being in the DC Suburbs. They don't even know what traffic is around here.
  8. The Kitchen. As soon as I get it painted/decorated, this may rival the MBR for my favorite room.
  9. The People. They're so different here. They actually talk to you rather than ignore you. Gotta love the South.
  10. Being Closer to UVA. Season football tickets, here I come.
  11. Never Having to Drive I-81 Home Again. That road is evil incarnate.
  12. Having a Second Bedroom. Now, I can have guests!
  13. The Possibilities. It's a whole new life, full of possibilities. I can't wait to see what's in store for me.

      I'm jealous! Can I come visit??!!

      Mine's up too :)

      Renee said...

      1: watch out for all that room, it tends to accumulate stuff quickly.
      4: you might want to reconsider walking to the gym... less stair stepping with the new house ;)
      5: Isn't it wonderful??? Had a townhouse once with only one assigned parking spot and the neighbors always hogged the "free spot" all the time.

      the rest of your house sounds wonderful. enjoy!

      Mama Duck said...

      Woohoo!! I want my own parking space that is closer ;).

      Wow, sounds like a great place... and great neighbours! I mean to ask you: Are you closer to your family now? (Sorry, I don't have a clue about US geography!)

      Congratulations! I agree, stairs and groceries don't mix.

      colleen said...

      I have to walk up the stairs every time I want to check my commments and emails. I like to think it's keeping me in shape! Congrats on your new home. It's quite a life accomplishment in my book!

      Your new place sounds terrific! :) Congratulations! :) But you really should walk to the gym. ;) My gym is 4 miles away, and in the spring/summer/fall when the weather is nice, I run there. :)

      Enjoy your new home. :)

      Ohhhhhhh I want my own place soooooooooooo much!!! When you go to UVA, stop at Crozet Pizza for me and have a bite, k?

      Dane Bramage said...

      Congrats on the new place. The first night in my new house I stretched out on the sofa and slept with the TV on. Just because I could! Thanks for visiting my 32nd Thursday Thirteen 13 Quotes About Women Edition.

      Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

      Pooh, its us...Tzeitel & Belicia. Take over all that extra space N.O.W. before your "human" does. We're telling you--once the humans take over there is no room for your toys, treats, and beds!

      Mrs Lifecruiser said...

      I'm very happy for you since you sounds soooo very happy about your new home!!!

      Good luck kicks in your butt ;-)

      *opening a bottle of champagne and spraying the whole place with it*

      There is nothing as amazing as owning your own home and getting to do whatever you want to it (painting, etc.).

      Can't wait to see the pics.
