this is the campsie project

this is my first blog message. it's kind of just put one foot in front of the other, I guess. I still don't really understand how this works, but wanted to see.

this is about 239 Campsie Place, a 1920's house in Lexington, Kentucky. the house was bought on January 31, 2004, by me and lucy. It's a project and it needs help. it's what is known as a "fixer-upper." This is something that I've wanted to do, in theory for years. Just to see, you know, if it's the kind of thing that I want to do. do home renovation. they say that the average person in modern america will switch careers, um, oh, i don't know how many times. anyway, i'm wondering about this. and i've always wondered about switching to some sort of hand-intensive job, like fixin' stuff, or buildin' stuff. years ago, i remember hearing that a casual acquaintence had moved away "to go to ship-building school." this is a guy who owned a restaurant. I've never forgotten that for some reason, and sometimes when I wonder "what I'm supposed to be doing," I think "I'm going to shipbuilding school."

Well, that hasn't happened yet.

but i think renovating this house with lucy might be the equivalent, as well as many other things.

I've told people this and now I'll say it again: I just want to know for a fact that I hate remodeling houses. THEN I can stop thinking that I want to do this.

So we'll see.
