I keep wanting to buy things for the house. Furniture, art, shelving, cabinets, countertops, etc., etc. ... though I'm pretty sure the newness and the excitement will wear off in time; so I'm trying to hold out on the major purchases until I've settled in for a few months.
In the meantime I'm learning to be a handyman! I re-caulked my bath tub--it's uneven and messy, but it works. I learned too late that the way to make even caulking is to use painter's tape. I bought this "as seen on TV" thing that wasn't all that effective at all. Oh well, lesson learned for next time.
I'm sure many more things will come up that needs fixing and repairing... but that's part of the fun of owning your place, I think.
