9/10/2006 - Sunday

Ho Hum. Nothing much to report. Yup, I'm going to work tomorrow.

Kevin and I finally got around to painting some of the interior doors in our house. They look a lot nicer now. I'll have before and after pictures for you when the paint dries :) While that isnít very exciting, this little job did allow me to once again reflect on the many benefits of building our own home. Besides being less expensive, Kevin and I got to build whatever we wanted, and when it was finished enough to move in, the sense of accomplishment was and still is priceless. I donít know that I would recommend building your own house to anyone else, but it sure does instill a sense of appreciation and pride. Unlike most people I know, Kevin and I know our house inside and out. There isnít one 2x4 or stroke of paint one or the both of us didnít have a hand on. We didnít just tell a contractor what we wanted and then write a check. If I wanted it, I had to do it myself, or convince Kevin it was worth the effort:) (Thus, we still donít have any landscaping or an actual lawnÖ) Let me tell you, this is a great way to gain some perspective. Suddenly, certain extras, like sayÖoh, certain exterior decorative trimÖdonít seem so important anymore. Imagine.

Anyway, its my bedtime. Time to catch up on what's happening in the world before I go to sleep: )
