Blogging and Enjoying My Ryan Home in PIttsburgh

One of the strangest things to me is the fact that so many people pop by and check out this blog.

I really have no idea why people like to listen to me blab about my house, but that's cool!  I understand.  I spent hours and hours and days and nights and more days and night ( get the idea)   watching my house being built and worrying to death if everything would turn out all right.

Well..I'm here to tell you it does.

Maybe you won't have the same journey though.  I'm very fortunate that I still have a husband and two beautiful babies here in my new ( almost new) Ryan Home.

Not everyone is so fortunate and I have to be aware of that and attentive to it so that I understand people overall a little better and tread lightly when pain enters their hearts or anger exits their mouths.

One of my neighbors built a house here in our Ryan home development and they got "the works".  A nice deck with stairs, granite counter tops, fireplace...etc.etc..   I remember thinking once that I would love to have what they had.....but then forward 2 or 3 years.

About a month ago, we were walking in our little neighborhood and this guy was moving all of his furniture out to another neighbor's home and selling every last thing he had in his perfect Ryan Home (A Venice just like mine).   He was a bit tipsy so we got the whole story...and it's such a sad one.

To make a long story short...His wife left.   To make it super sad.....She took the boy.  To make it righteous....He did something bad. all turned out like it should, however, that's not a happy Ryan Home anymore.  I just hope that the next family that moves into it is able to fix it and make it "smile" again.

The energy that it must have had to go through while fights and battles over things that don't matter were going on must be exhausting.

I'm so glad that the majority of my childhood was filled with turmoil so in a sense it is out of my life.  Kind of like I've paid my dues I guess.

So...unlike those neighbors, I have thoroughly enjoyed my Ryan Home Venice and I'm totally happy that we spend (borrowed) the money to be here.  Our daughters love this place and home ownership (although challenging to keep up with at times) is well worth it in the long run.

We are proud of what we do and we have something to work for every day of our lives and with my new adventure in Job Killing (more about that later), we are really making a great life story here!

I have painted the morning room, the living room and put decals in one of the bathrooms.  I have learned that I really really REALLY like trees.  (Perhaps it's a little influence by my husband's deceased mother)   Trees. Paisly and swirly things.  I don't know what it is...I just love them!

Alrighty!  Gotta run. I'll be sure to post some photos of the painted morning room and stuff in the future!

BEsT LOVE to you!
