More on my house...

After thinking more about this post, which is the story of how I came to afford a house in Howard County, I began to worry that one could perceive it as indulgent (isn't that what blogging is all about?).

I know this is my blog and I can write what I want. But I still like to keep things focused on what matters in Howard County, and my story is probably not the most important one you'll ever read. Writing about buying our first house, I thought, would hopefully provide some insight into what it's like for a first-time buyer. If it does, that's great.

Obviously, I'm extremely happy about it -- going over there now to do some more painting -- and it's hard not to write about. It's also hard not to write a lot about it, since it has been such a consuming part of my life for the past few weeks (and many more weeks to come, I'm sure).

I already wrote a disclaimer (two even) for the post, so I'm not sure why I feel the need to do this. I guess I just don't want people to think that this space will turn into a celebration of all things me, because it won't. Frankly, I'm not that interesting.

Hayduke,

Your house blog didn't seem indulgent. Someone said, "No ideas but in things." "Affordable housing" is a big idea but your example brings it to life.

What you accomplished is a big deal. Even if it is indulgent - ITS OK.
