You buy a home. You say hi to the neighbors. You might put up a door hanging or put a new mailbox out. What you don’t count on is being apart of a ‘neighborhood’. I am not talking about a subdivision; I mean a homeowner’s association (HOA). Don’t get blindsided like I did!
Our first HOA meeting was a doozy and yielded their biggest turnout ever. Everyone is concerned when they have to open their pocketbook and the big issue was our roads. Let me tell you, I am sick of riding a rollercoaster as I drive throughout neighborhood. Get up off of your money because this was a 20 year road that got stretched to a 50 year road, it is time!
Not thinking about the ramifications of a simple suggestion, I suggested that we should have a Facebook and a free website. You could just hear the blood pressure rise of 80% of the room because they are most are mid-life or later.
- One member said, “Facebook is the worst invention ever!”
- Me, “Do you have one?”
- Member, “Yes.”
Get your panties out of a bunch because we are getting one and everyone has one. I guess since I was bold enough to bring an idea to the table they thought I should take the Vice President position because the current one wanted to step down. Say What?! I was just coming to the meeting because I had to.
I hate that I am one step away from a housewife now. I cook, I don’t clean, I raise Michael, I am a Mom Blogger and now am on our HOA board. What is next, the PTA? Bah!
“You can put this on your resume!”
At 24 I became a homeowner and I am the youngest person in our neighborhood! Does anyone really know what it means to be a Mom Blogger that isn’t one? I don’t think so! I don’t want to put anything on my resume, I do not want a new job, I do make money and my Husband has accepted that this is my career. I love my ‘job’ and would not trade it for the world! Buckle your seat belt because you are about to be Mom Blogged.
