Last week’s topic: Thanksgiving
This week’s topic: Where I live
Topic suggested by Chelsea @ Books for Thought
For this topic, you don’t have to discuss your house or even your town. You don’t have to go into detail if you don’t want to! I won’t give the name of my town, but I have no problem sharing my house :)
I live in Ohio. Crappy, lame Ohio. Where we go through all four seasons in the span of 48 hours. YAY. (not) Winters are long and cold. (I’m sure there’s worse, but I’m a sissy when it comes to cold.) One day it will be 60 degrees, the next it will be 30. Fun, right? I grew up in Ohio, so it’s mine, you know? But I kind of hate it. Someday I want to move somewhere where it never snows!
My neighborhood is a small, quiet city, and we don’t have any neighbors on our side so we’re not squished right next to another house. The only bad thing about the location is that there’s a couple of small businesses right behind us and we don’t have a privacy fence. I love the location, though – we have everything we need convenience-wise, so I hardly ever have to drive more than a mile to get to anything. There’s just about every kind of fast food – McD’s, Taco Bell, Burger King, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Pizza Hut, Subway, Hot Head; a Rite Aid and Dollar General; and the Kroger is only a half mile up the interstate. It’s awesome! I can fill my gas tank once a paycheck now (bi-weekly) :D
We just moved in at the end of May! It has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths – 2,280 square feet total. It’s a manufactured (aka prefab/modular) home, which is a fancy way for saying it was built off-site and moved to its final resting place. It was also a foreclosure, so we got it for ridiculously cheap! It has a few cosmetic issues, and we had a LOT of repairs to make before we could move in, but it’s awesome. It’s so roomy! And the best part is the storage! There’s a big ass pantry, tons of closet space (seriously, there’s his & hers closets in the master bathroom). My library? It’s a 10×5 closet. I had room for 8 shelves…IN MY CLOSET. That was the selling part for us! There’s a lot that we still want to do with it, but I love it! (There’s lots of pictures of it on Instagram and I’ll be posting a bookshelf tour soon!)
