I am hooked on all television shows that deal with houses. Whether it is renovations, finding your first home, moving to foreign countries, making decisions about should I move or should I stay – all of them.
I love seeing all of the options that are out there and that are geared to everybodys personal needs. Depending on the show that I am watching, I get the urge to move, renovate, build a basement apartment, add on an addition – what ever I am watching, I want to apply it to my life.
They make things look so easy. Oh we do see some frustration, but not enough to deter me from the possibility of taking on any one of those huge projects. It’s very strange, because when we purchased our old bungalow, we renovated by ourselves, and I hated every minute of it. Even with the end result which made us so happy, I still think back and get the shivers. Yet when I watch those shows on television, I all of a sudden think, “hey I would love to add on an addition to my house”.
Boy, it’s funny how quickly I forget the agony of renovating when I see everyone smiling and happy on television while they are ripping apart a house. Could that mean that I would actually do it again? I guess maybe I would.
