Four Walls

Is it much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

I don’t care for fancy things
Or to take part in a precious race
And children cry for the one who has
A real big heart and a father’s grace

I don’t mean to seem like I care about material things like a social status
I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls

Animal Collective “My Girls” -Merriweather Post Pavilion

so this song. ya i adore it. very much. and every time i was surfing the ‘nets for houses i would either play it or be singing it. an ya it seems to be from a man’s pov but seeing as i was a single mom for so many damn long years i feel like it’s ok i claim it as my own. i did a dad’s job to the best of my feminine ability. also i get a big kick out of the ogre’s reaction to this song. he cringes & winces. i think not so much for the lyrics but for the music. he’s not a fan of Casio tone et al.

today we sit and sign the Escrow Documents & Statements of Disclosures, Title Report and go thru with very caffeinated eyes the Inspectors report. i’ve already requested that RR find a Geo-technological engineer for the erosion thats started splitting the RV driveway. it doesn’t seem to be an emergent problem but if we continue to get stellar rains i have gut feeling we could have a big problem on our hands. i also have want to investigate the roof. it’s got some bare spots. it’s only covered with rocks… so we just get a bag of rocks up there? special roof rock? and what about the Santa Ana’s moving rocks around possibly to fall on the cars or MY HEAD? why rocks on a roof anyway?

and i need a chimney sweep. a dude that comes and cleans out all the AC/Heater vents. a pool company. landscape care person.  those to come after purchase. before purchase a geo-tech engineer and a roof inspection?

this is hard. by far the hard adult thing to date. maybe the decision to marry is still harder.
