I never thought I would live in a mobil home, and I certainly never thought I would live in a gated retirement community (I'll rant about that another time), but I really do like my Florida place. I am very comfortable here.
The thing is, it is 12 years old and therefore "very dated." Here's a picture from my kitchen:
For years I watched HGTV shows where a house without stainless appliances got nothing but turned up noses. But maybe white is coming back now? The light cabinets -- so ten+ years ago -- what were people thinking?
BTW, I bought this refrigerator last year to replace a much larger one that had an ice maker. You probably think I should actually live in a cave but I use very little ice and all I could think about was the system growing mold while waiting for me to call for an ice cube.
My condo in VT was built in the early 80's. The appliance were all replaced just before I moved in and they are stainless steel. I don't get the big whoop. Wiping finger prints off them is a constant chore.
And the agitator-less washing machine. Good grief ,I hate that thing. It runs forever and tangles the clothes like it thinks it was a rope twisting machine in a former life. The 12 year old model I have here does a much better job cleaning my clothes and without all the wrinkles to contend with.
Not everything new is an improvement.
OR I am turning into my parents.
I probably wouldn't be able to sell my Florida place if home buyers on TV are any indication so it's a good thing I don't plan to do so.
