Do you love your home?


Love: An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.

Home: A place where one lives; a residence.

very much so; it more than meets our needs, even for entertaining and having guests, and is less than a quarter mile from the community private beach, playground, clubhouse, and boat launch. Plus, we got it very cheap as an estate sale.

One of my favorite books when I was a child was The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman. Sometimes I just look around my tiny little house and this quote from that book comes to mind.

"I love my house, I love my nest, in all the world, my nest is best!"

Does anyone else remember that book?

We've done a small amount of work on this house and there is still a lot that needs to be done... but I love it like it's a member of my family.

It's okay, but I think saying I "love" it is being a bit too extreme.

I spend almost equal amounts of time in each of my homes! My home in Sheffield I love for its placement. Our garden backs onto green-belt land and two valleys meet at the botttom of my road so the views are amazing. There's a wood on the hill opposite my house, and another much larger one on the other side of the other valley. There's a stream at the bottom of the garden, and so many places to go walking all around. The fields behind the house often have horses or ponies or sheep in. But the house's just that bit too small for 5 of us. Now we're all adults, 3 bedrooms isn't enough. This year, with me being at university and my older brother moving back in, my younger brother has moved out of their shared room and into mine. Now, when I go home, I don't have any private space and I sleep on the sofa. The foundations of the house were damaged by the man who lived here before and he built the extension himself so it's very dodgy. I don't think the house would pass a modern surveyor, so chances of selling it on ever are very slim. We have a wonderful, big kitchen, but that's the only really nice feature, apart from the big windows at the back with the great views. All in all, I love the loaction, but the house itself is only passable.

In Oxford, I'm quite fond of the location. The Thames is right under my window (literally spitting distance) and so is a large park area belonging to one of the colleges, but I'm still just a 10 minute walk from the city centre. I have a very large room on the top floor of a modern student block. It's nice and quiet because we're all finalists. I have a skylight. My friends live close by, and we have free internal telephones. But I can't say I love it. I love my life here, but my actual has too many functions. I work, eat, play and sleep in here. Mostly at this desk (bar the sleeping, and that;s in my bed 2 feet away). I can never divorce my room from the pressure I'm under or the work I have to do. I will miss it when I'm gone though. But I don't love it.

Because I thought "Other" was more appropriate.

Not particularly, I don't think. I love my neighborhood and my city. My home I only like.

I do "love" the inside of my house, I don't "love" where the house is, in a cul-de-sac. I feel I have to keep the garden a certain way or someone will complain, I'd rather have a bit more land around my house to hid behind, so it would feel more like a nest.

No, but I do tolerate it.

No, not really, as it is not "mine" and I am "trapped" -- no money to move to a place I like better. I have lived here for many years, in a rented one-room studio apt., and while it is better than some places I can think of, it is not really where I would like to be. I got evicted from a place I liked better, because the owner of the building lived there and wanted to renovate my "mother-in-law" apt so he could charge a lot more. So I moved into an area close to work years ago, but though it is at least a sunny, bright apt, I want a place of my own where I can plant whatever I want -- that is, more than just a kitchen window and a fire escape (where I'm not allowed to put things ON the surface, but have hung a few plants over the rail or put them on a windowsill.) The area where I want to live is a couple of miles from where I live now, and has more actual houses with little yards and decks.

No, that's why I'm going to be moving soon.

We currently rent and ILL. but we have our house in Upstate NY. it's beautifull, it's an 1840 Victorian, which my husband and I completely remodeled.

No, its too small, and the basement floods every once in a while, not often, I really hate it when that happens.
posted 25-Apr-2005 5:15am  
Hell yes, I have spent a lot of time in the last couple years fixing it to MY likings. Well and my Womans too. I also did ALL the work myself.

No but I like it.

Yes, I love my home but I'll be happy when we get to move. I'm happy here, but we need more space.
posted 25-Apr-2005 11:07am  
Since it is temporary, smells and has holey curtains and chairs, no.
posted 25-Apr-2005 12:41pm  
I like living there, but the place is crap. It needs a new fridge, the foundation is sinking, the toilet makes screeching noises when you flush it, the kids in the neighborhood are trouble, the front yard is like a marsh, and my neighbor is the only person on the planet that I actively dislike. However, my roommate and I get along well so I can't complain.

The strangest thing is when you leave your home where you grew up and return, you always think "home" but when you're through with that trip and you're on your way back to your "real home" you realize that your childhood home isn't home anymore. Then you actually look forward to your home that you live at right now. It took me over a year to realize that.

I find my home eminently serviceable. But I cannot love something that frustrates and worries me so (it needs quite a bit of work).
posted 26-Apr-2005 6:08pm  
Yes I sure do
posted 27-Apr-2005 8:44pm  
Yes, because it's my private place, where I can do things my own way. After staying with my dad for a month, I was ready to live under a bridge. I just having my privacy, like doing things my way, like being able to decorate my way, things like that. So, in that sense, yeah, I'd say I love my home. But, it's not where I'm planning to live for the rest of my life. I'm thinking 5 years tops. Then, it'll be time to build a house.

No, not where I live at the moment, because I live with people who cook strange food which stinks the house out, and then they leave bits of it in the sink for me to pick out of the plughole, they make the bathroom floor wet with their shower water, leave pubic hairs around the bathroom, leave the windows open all the time so the house is freezing, bang about at strange hours of the night and day and slam the door just as I'm drifting off to sleep.

Sorry, just had to have a rant. Nice to get it off my chest!
posted 28-Apr-2005 1:45pm  
no, i fell asi should find somewhere else to live, as this place is a bit boring now, and i've lived here since i was a baby, so i think it is time to move on and start a clean slate!

ummmmm....i love the fact that my children have a safe place to live and (being at my parent's) we had a decent place to go when i left my ex....with 7 people in a 3 bedroom house it does get a little crowded sometimes, but overall it's ok. i will say this, when i do finally get my own place i will love it, because it will be all mine.

Nice location, big lot. The building itself leaves something to be desired though. It's old and needs repairs.

I like my home a lot. It's much nicer than the house I lived in for the three years before I loved here. However, I always expected it to be temporary (initially, just a year) and being rented, there's only so much that I can do to make it my own. I'm looking forward to buying my own home in the next couple of years and think I will probably love the home I do buy.
