Beware of Pandemic House Projects

I’ve lived in my home since 1990. During that time the house has evolved. Some of it happened organically since things wear out and need to be replaced. This can include roofs, boilers, well pumps etc… And I’m okay with that. Where I resist change though is updating for the sake of the latest styles or fads.

For me being trendy and up to date interests me about as much as news of another royal baby. That’s not at all. One time, when I actually purchased a fashionable brand item, it didn’t end well. Surprisingly, family and friends implored me to get rid of it. But, to be fair, people had stopped wearing their Members Only jackets about twenty years before. My counterargument was that there was still plenty of wear left in it. It was great for those shoulder seasons.
