Wow, who knew that mentioning New Jersey could cause such a stir! Well, after much soul searching and contemplation, the Bangor Foursquare will still be in Maine. It was tough giving up such a nice salary and perks but our hearts are in Maine. Moreover, when I had our realtor come by the other day to give us an appraisal, I had a complete visceral reaction when she told me she was certain that the first person to walk in our house would want it. I thought, "What? Someone else can't have MY house!" So, I'm clearly not ready to give up this house yet.
So, all is well here. No harm, no foul.
In the meantime, I have found that I loathe miter boxes. I too am a product of my quick-fix generation and do not like to spend excessive amounts of time doing something that I could do in a matter of seconds. To make matters worse, I spent 30 minutes cutting a baseboard's miter to only find out that it was 2 inches too short for the space. Sigh. This is what happens when one has taken too long of a break from home improvement.
