It's about damn time

All I can say is it's long overdue, but I finally did a new show tonight. I don't know what the hell is wrong with me, but I sometimes think this new house totally killed KEEE Web Radio. I have this whole downstairs area that is PERFECT for radio shows. The problem is, I never go down there unless I have company.

I have the DJ stuff and my office separated.....which is a first in the 7 or 8 years I've been doing this. I like my office being upstairs, but I recognize that when I don't have the office stuff next to the DJ stuff, that "spur of the moment" thing of doing a show is so less likely to happen. I mean, if I'm staring at the mics and mixers all the time, I'm never going to do one, right?

I have so many problems with this house. Let me do the list:

The pipes need replacing (we get rusty water out of several faucets if we don't run them often enough). My bathroom off the master has a broken shower I can't use (until I fix the leak) or it will soak my Star Wars room. I'd like to totally remodel both of the upstairs bathrooms at some point. The electrical system needs a total overhaul (or at least a new panel). I need new kitchen appliances, but especially the oven and dishwasher. The furnace will give out eventually. I need new rain gutters. The back yard has a drainage problem that needs to be fixed sooner or later. I need a new fence on at least one side of the yard, and more than likely both.

Aside from that, we need to hang pictures, unpack my massive Star Wars collection, and eventually decorate the downstairs so it's more inviting and I actually venture down there more than once a month or when we have guests.

Everything I just listed will probably cost me tens of thousands of dollars I won't have for over a year (after the wedding) and/or my own worktime that I'll probably NEVER have. Ugh.

But somehow this is better than renting, or gasp.....buying a condo where there are almost never half of these problems. :-)
