Another variety of ornamental cherry has bloomed on campus. Despite last night’s hard freeze, the blossoms were still hanging today. The snowstorm expected tomorrow night may do it in. Meanwhile, I’ve been up to my ears trying to decide whether to remodel the house or just buy another one. You’d think this would an easy decision, but when you start looking at the billions of ways to finance a remodel, then deal with the logistics of a remodel versus just moving, there’s a lot to consider. It kind of makes my head hurt. Just to put that in perspective, my kitchen was a disaster when I bought my house eleven years ago. That’s how long I’ve been thinking about remodeling. And now that I’m right at the edge of signing the paper, I suddenly feel sick. If I didn’t love where I live this would be a lot easier. This is a first world problem and I know it. I’m incredibly grateful to even have a roof over my head and a warm place to sleep let alone a choice of which house I want. I hope I never take that for granted.
