So, I have a pinterest.
And I’ve been putting a lot of house ideas on there.
That, and talking to friends talking about their dream houses, leads me to thinking about that dichotomy.
So, over here, we have ~~the ideal house~~ Mine is a 2-story-with-attic in a style common around here which so far I’ve been unable to put a name to, with 3 bedrooms and a closet office, a wide, open kitchen, and a lot of light.
And over here, we have the house I own. It’s a short squat farmhouse that currently has very bare walls – unpainted drywall in one room, bare “studs” in another- bad linoleum, and strange room shapes (It does have, technically, 3 bedrooms and a closet office).
Of course, the advantage of the house I own is that it’s mine. And I’ve been working on thinking about Dream House that way – not about the house I might have some day, but about what I can do to my current house to make it My House.
(First step, as soon as we can afford it, is obviously getting someone in to fix the walls.)
So when I think about Dream House, I’m going to work on thinking Dreams For This House.
But that’s me. What about you?
