I have always heard people say that owning a home is this ever present hole of work. Having owned two previous places (both condo townhomes) I have been spoiled with how much of the work gets done for you. Enter the semi we are in now. Besides the fact that I have put a deck and fence on this summer (deck not completed) and painted a major portion of the house – the work keeps coming. Lawn care (which needs work anyway), new flower beds, more painting, cleaning fixing etc. And I was worried I would never get into the groove of working out again. Oh my aching body!
