ROFL. I hear your pain, man. That's a part of why we went kicking and screaming from a house in CA back to our apartment in NY. That is fun for about 6 months and then it's just a PITA.

Congrats on becoming a 'happy' homeowner! We've tried to get better at fixing and maintaining things. Honestly, the only thing I've gotten better at is writing checks...to the guy who can fix or maintain whatever needs it. (I've saved a bundle after figuring that one out!)
Have fun!


Dude, I still find myself cursing home-ownership. It's a joy, it's a pain, it's a learning experience, that's for sure.

Great! We recently went the opposite direction. We don't exactly live in an apartment, but it's a rental nontheless. We moved from a huge 4k sqft house with a big yard to a 1600sqft rental condo. So while I miss having all that space, I don't miss having to take care of it. Now I just look at that light way up high and go "meh" and walk away :-)


I call all that stuff a "checkbook chore." We can't even hang pictures without tearing multiple holes in the wall. But I can sign a check with the best of em.
