On the flip side, being that we are downsizing from Heartland's Nantucket II which had insane space, having to live in this Patio Home has been 10 months of rehab in bringing us back down to reality! And for me personally, it has been an amazing experience in the sense that I've learned so much about life in general and it's strengthened my faith just that much more, and it's also allowing me to appreciate our Rome to the fullest! Whereas before this experience, I was feeling like we were losing so much by selling our house and deciding to downsize! Well now I know we didn't lose ANYTHING! We have GAINED SO MUCH all the way around, and the Rome is PERFECT and I'm ready to GO!
I've come a long way though LOL! Because when we first moved, I cried like a baby the first 2 weeks in this Patio Home...my poor family, dealing with my melt downs and crying spells over this or that LOL! Looking back on it I can just do nothing but Laugh! God has a way of getting you ready for things LOL! I remember the first week, I saw a centipede in our bedroom...OMG...boy did I cry that night. I DO NOT do Spiders LOL! Then the next day I saw another one in the kitchen! I cried again! At that point, I said, God if you let me not see anymore Centipedes I will stop my crying and constant complaining about this patio home. NOTE: I said constant complaining, I didn't say I would totally stop complaining LOL! Anyway, He got the point - because from that prayer forward I didn't see anymore centipedes! LOL!
10 months in, this journey has now made me appreciate the little things in life like Garbage Disposals, Peep Holes in the Front Door, Refrigerators with Ice and Water that doesn't taste like freakin GARLIC, Furnaces that Work in the winter, and just the everyday things that most people take for granted because this place LACKS IT ALL!!! I call this place Perfume on a Pig! It looks pretty on the outside but it really isn't! I'm sick of dumping food in the garbage because we have no garbage disposal, im sick of yelling like I'm a maniac when someone rings the doorbell because there's no window or peep hole on the dum door, and I'm sick of storing food on the kitchen table because there's not adequate cabinets and the Pantry is a JOKE!!
So July 2nd, please hurry up and get here! Ok I'm done complaining. LOL! Oh, here are some pictures for your amusement LOL!
|No Room in Cabinets for all Our Food! So our kitchen table has become a make shift storage area comprised of a Costco box in the back to give it some stability LOL!|
|Whoever Designed this PANTRY is an IDIOT! You tell me how we're suppose to reach food that's in back of the first row without taking everything out smh! This is by far the most irritating feature of this kitchen!|
|This Freezer/Refrigerator Sucks! It opens backwards! And just don't even shop for more then a weeks worth of food at a time or you'll get home and seriously regret it LOL!|
