I hope everyone reading this (all 3 of you! ;)) had terrific, fun, family filled Thanksgivings. I got to spend turkey day with my mom, brother and other family for the first time in years, which is one of the fringe benefits of moving back to Colorado after so long. They live in Boulder, so I headed down there for the long weekend and hung out in my old stomping grounds for the first time in a while.
It was great to see the family. We ate way, way too much food, watched a ton of football and just relaxed. I honestly feel like I shed several pounds of stress from my shoulders. That relaxation was very, very needed. I’m hoping that I can try to host Thanksgiving next year, but I may have to wait one more year or so – we’ll see. I want my place to be all put together and looking great before I host any huge family functions. Clearly, family functions are a different sort of ballgame than throwing a raging house party. I still have beer bottles that need to be recycled from that messy night.
Anyways, I’ve been thinking about what I should do on this blog, and my experience with cleaning up after the party a few weeks back gave me an idea for it. As I’m figuring out everything associated with owning a house, I think I’m going to document the whole process. From shopping for faucet fixtures and kitchen towels to choosing contractors and cleaning the carpets, you’ll find the details here. I know that may be boring to some people, but I think it’ll be kind of interesting and certainly could be helpful to people who are going through the same situation. Stay tuned for more!
