I don't know why this hit me today, but being that we now own our home (since we are "renters no more") we can't just call to have something fixed, we have to do it. There is no landlord for us to call, we have to fix it. Granted at our townhouse they were a little lax in the maintenance department, but there was still someone to call. Take bees for example, last summer they were building a nest in our screen door, we had maintenance spray and take care of it. This summer yellow jackets were building a huge nest in our front siding, we had to get (and pay) an exterminator to come and take care of them.
It feels good to have our own house but sometimes I wish we could still just call maintenance.
