Things learned from a dripping ceiling!

After just purchasing a new home last September, we are still getting to know her.

There are so many wonderful things about this home, just as we imagined, especially after we fixed her all up, treated her with respect, and handled her with some tendering loving care.

However, as you may know from experience, there are some other things in any building that may lurk... not always pleasant things.

Thankfully the only glitch we've found to date is this little leak in the sun room ceiling:

This discovery/dilemma is driving my husband crazy... We knew the roof would cause some problems and that we'd tackle it in the spring, solving it completely. This winter, though, has been quite a bear, with lots of snow, ice, and freezing temps. Enter ~ unwanted leak.

Growing up in a house that seemed to always have some "glitch" going on; flooded basements, no heat, holes in the bathroom wall (so while taking a shower you could high five someone going down the basement stairs that were on the other side of the wall, next to the tub), I never felt in control.

Once I "grew up", I vowed to be in control of my living space. It was wonderful to learn that when you spot a little "glitch", you could certainly fix it, or hire someone more skilled to fix it for you!

What a breath of fresh air! Control! Responsibility!

So although this little leak is a bit inconvenient, and unsightly at the moment, I am happy to know that it will soon be fixed on the outside by my hands on and fabulously talented hubby, and I will fix up the inside.

Problem - solved.

Easy as that!

Take responsibility and control of your life. Sounds simple, but it is not always done. Be proud of what you have and who you are!!!

I am a Putnamaniac that learns some great things from a dripping ceiling!
