Today I developed a new definition of homeownership. Homeownership is not simply paying the mortgage on a house, doing upkeep and improvements. The real definition of homeownership should be the following.
Homeownership (verb)-The act of forcing yourself to get up early on Saturday morning to take care of things that you would have never thought about doing when you lived in your apartment.
Examples: having to rack an entire season of leaves out of your front yard, having to call your dad over to show you how to turn off the water lines to your outdoor hoses, hanging drapes, and trying to figure out why a lock isn’t catching all the way.
I signed on for this adventure so I best make it my own.
