I have a house and I should be thankful for that. But if I could pick and choose the features I’d want in a house, I’d like the following:
A house without shared walls. I could play my stereo and guitars as loudly or as privately as I want. And I can vacuum at 3am if I can’t sleep and need something to do.
A driveway or garage so I wouldn’t have to park on the street.
A house on a slab so I wouldn’t have to walk up and down stairs.
I’d like kitchen cabinets and a pantry at my height so I don’t need a ladder or stool to reach my food and cookware.
A larger back yard so I could grow more flowers and vegetables.
Low or no property taxes – I can dream, can’t I?
My house would be complete if I could have either of my late husbands to share it with. Preferably both of them – but I’m certain they wouldn’t go along with that arrangement.
