See my version of "This Old House" ala redneck style? We're not rednecks you know! but you can't tell that from the outside of our house... One thing we learned fast when we started renovating is nothing will ever be perfect in a house over 100 years old! So... that's the underlying theme of our entire life "imperfection" and I gratefully accept it! Oh by the way that hideous satellite dish was a left over from our renters and we've since ripped it off the front of our house I've just not updated my pictures in a long time... Yup, no where close to being perfect!
And I just tried to upload another picture but it keeps loading the top of my post! I have no idea how to stick it in the middle like right here.... lol So just one picture... but that's one more picture than I've been able to manage so far so that's progress right? lol
I let too many out of whack expectations of perfection ruin a good many days, projects, friendships, etc and I've missed out on even more wonderful things because I feared what someone else would think. No more! I'm through with that foolishness, it robs the joy from your heart and if you don't have some joy in your heart then what's the point? Everyone around you will suffer for it. Life is too short and too precious to squander on a senseless, unattainable goal of perfection. I learned this lesson years ago and every so often it doesn't hurt to remind myself of it. So here's my perfectly imperfect home...the siding is buckling, the front porch sags, the neighborhood is redneck and the grass ain't grass at all but more like weeds but it's our home and it's close to being paid off. Which makes it beautiful in our eyes.
