a few thoughts on being a homeowner

1) I actually want to do things correctly.
2) I’m not sure I know how to do things correctly.
3) it doesn’t feel quite real.
4) so far, we have found: a 1942 Nazi 10 pfennig piece, a blue bead, a little red army man, a tiny plastic gun, and an weird little fork (3 curved tines, what is that?).
5) it really will take forever to unpack.
6) I miss the books I’ve gotten rid of (sold, mostly) over the years.
7) thank god it doesn’t all have to be done at once.
8) my god, I wish it could all be done at once!
