Pearls Before Swine (3/10/11)

Sometimes, when I’m running high on pity and low on perspective, I take a look around my house and sigh. I tally up all the projects I want to do – painting, hanging shelves – and all the projects I want other people to do – sanding the floors, replacing the tile in the bathroom, finishing the basement – and become discouraged. But then I realize that my house is perfectly livable as is. Could it use some maintenance? Sure, but I don’t need to replace vital systems like plumbing and electricity. Could it use some cosmetic upgrades? Of course, but it’s attractive enough without them. Overall, things could be worse. Yes, my wife and I have a lot of work ahead of us, but it’s not like we live in a gross, disgusting ball of dung.
