Celebrating a milestone

This year is going to be a big year for me. This Friday, just a few short days away, I will be making the last payment on my home. I will be a home owner for the first time in my life. Oh sure we could get into the specifics of it being just an RV but I will have my own piece of land to park it on with a yard and it will be mine. A nice little place to call my own.

One thing I always wanted to do at some point in my life was to host my own barbecue at my house. This fourth of July I am making preliminary plans to make that a reality. I suppose it won’t be a very big deal, just a couple of people over for hamburgers and potato chips most likely. But it will be the first time I have the option to be the host for this type of thing.

It’s nothing too major but this will probably be my first chance. Of course I am hoping that finally owning my own home and having a yard will give me plenty of these types of opportunities in the future. Still, it’s a major milestone for me and something I can cross off my list of things to do before I die.
