For Amanda - Homeownership 101

1) Never try to save money for a large purchase/project. The moment you get anywhere near your goal, something big and ugly will break in your house and you'll have to use your savings to pay for repair/replacement.

2) Repairing screens is easy - and a hellova lot cheaper than buying new ones.

3) Nothing is more cost-saving than a good "programmable" thermostat.

4) You can never have too much duct tape, superglue, rubberbands, or Lysol.

5) Enjoy your home - be happy. The office is ok, but home is sanctuary!

Love, Mom

Shoot it / stab it

What's a screen?

This is gettin' technical

4) You can never have too much duct tape, superglue, rubberbands, or Lysol.

Dunno what Lysol is but I did superglue a neighbour who pissed me off - to his toilet as it happens

5) Enjoy your home - be happy. The office is ok, but home is sanctuary!
