Being a homeowner has been an eye opening experience for me. It is both rewarding and challenging. There are pieces that no one tells you about owning home. Things that I have had to figure out along the way.

Some days, I want to cry. Other times, it’s fun. I am guilty of using the phrase, “I wish I had a boyfriend or husband around to do this for me,” in moments of despair. Then, I shake myself back to reality and figure out how to achieve whatever daunting task is at hand.

Lately, I have become somewhat of a do it yourselfer. I have my own toolkit, complete with screwdrivers, wrenches, Allen keys of all sizes. I even have a drill! Oh, and a hammer! I’m quite handy, I think…

One issue I have run into, being a DIY’er is that I keep having all these extra pieces leftover… Is that normal? Or is it just me?

  1. Extra pieces are ALWAYS a thing. 🙂

    Being a single female homeowner can be challenging, but SO rewarding. The best advice I got when I first ventured into single homeownership was “if it’s not at risk of being on fire or flooding, it doesn’t have to be taken care of immediately.” I’ve kept that in my head ever since, and it’s taken a lot of stress out of the mounting to-dos!
