There was a point in my life when I was all excited to settle down. Quite naturally, that involved going around the stores, looking at all sorts of appliances to fill up our home. Gone are those days, but staying with my parents for a while has gotten me thinking about home improvement again. Sad to say, the house that I grew up in is in a sorry state.
On the one hand, I feel like getting little things - home appliances - that can help my parents enjoy life more. I have been looking at web sites like this air filter homepage just for the sake of looking. After all, with the kids in the house, indoor air quality is of primary importance.
There are other little things that I am sure they would appreciate, but it just seems it's not what I can do right now. It's definitely not a good time for me, but that is actually beside the point.
It's not like I haven't brought home some "new" stuff in the recent months. I have been blessed to have been able to bring home other small appliances like a microwave and a toaster. My trusty old espresso machine is even here! Still, I think about other little things like juicers (mom's a health nut).
Then I think of other things. Just this morning, when I went on the exercise bike, I accidentally hit the wall socket behind me. Nothing serious, but the panel gave way, and it seems like we have termites in there. :(
So yeah, I have home appliance blues, but only because I want to do something more, if that makes sense. In the meantime, I am really thinking of getting something special for the home (mom and dad) when I can afford it. Any useful ideas?
