As I write this blog, I'm usually a few days ahead of the actual day a post goes up. Not always, just usually. However, this one is just a couple hours past real time (at 12:59 AM). At the end of the story of that 1935 house that my wife and I are redoing, there is a young couple that resides as "first time home owners". My daughter and son-in-law, to be exact. They now live there and we are almost complete with the renovation. There are a few small things, but nothing keeping anyone from living in it.
I walked into one of the bedrooms and sit down to do some math calculations for hanging a curtain rod (yeah, I like exactness). As I sat there with pen in hand (no calculator), I looked around the room that looked so different than the many times I had worked in it. It actually had things in it and looked like someone lived there. What you see below was the view I had while sitting there thinking these things, but I felt really proud of my wife and I for getting though this reno. I thought, as some men do, that we did this with our own two hands, and this was a tough one. And it is a home that my daughter really likes being in. For a dad that did a good bit of the work, that's a proud moment.
This is the retired Shane Killen personal blog, an IT technical blog about configs and topics related to the Network and Security Engineer working with Cisco, Brocade, Check Point, and Palo Alto and Sonicwall. I hope this blog serves you well. -- May The Lord bless you and keep you. May He shine His face upon you, and bring you peace.
