Before I have even set foot in my new house, my first house... before I even own it legally, in fact, you can leave it to a member of my family, who shall remain nameless, to remind me that the novelty will wear off quite quickly and it will be amazing how rapidly owning a home will be fixing, painting, maintaining, chugging along, dum da dum, boring ol' life.
And you wonder where I get the pessimism? I haven't even spent the night there yet! Boy. Welcome to this family.
