You know when you get a new car, oh that new car smell, the slick feel of your brand new shiny car. Then, you get that first ding, dent, coffee spill or what have you. The pain of that first ding, just hurts!
We just bought a new house. We have been in the home for less than two weeks. Honestly, I would have thought we could have held off more than two weeks before we get a single ding can’t we?
Ding # 1 – Hubby. He put up temporary blinds, attached them just above the window on the wall. A day later he took them down and along with them came the paint!
Ding # 2 – Hubby. He dropped a bottle on the hard wood floor and it landed weird and ended up putting a circle dent on the hard woods.
Ding # 3 – DOG & CAT. Seriously…. Our dog and cat BOTH have never been sick, but you know what. There is a first time for everything and there is no better time to have a dog and cat diarrhea and vomit party… On the new carpet! I am NOT even kidding people.
Ding # 4 – BEAU. She got her permit last month. For the most part she is doing pretty well! Three days after they laid the sod and created our insta-lawn, Beau was backing out of the driveway and rolled over a portion of the lawn (which was totally saturated from just being watered). There is now about a 4 inch tire track sunk in our lawn.
I am over it… I pretty much never got too upset (well except for the dog and cat mess – that is wrong on every level). Our house will be well lived in, just the kind of family we are!
When my hubby read this then asked what Ding have I done? My reply was there is not much that can be done about being perfect – I am what I am! I will probably be the one who accidentally drives through the garage door without opening it or something like that!
What was your first Ding? How did you handle it?
