Yep, first house and it's got a BIG yard. Considering how dry Colorado is in general, I am thinking about xeriscaping the whole thing at some point, but that costs $$$$$, and I'm going to be light on that for a while due to all the expenses of moving. But I anticipate staying put for a LONG time, so there's time for that. And the previous owner was nice enough to leave a gas-powered lawn mower behind.

Are you the king of your castle?(Seinfeld reference)
Yep, I'm "lord of the manor."

Actually, my father turned me on to this company that provides "home warrantys." For a $600 premium per year, if anything, and I mean ANYTHING, needs repaired, they will send a qualified professional for the job to your home and perform the repair for a $55 service fee. My father got what would have been a $600-$700 repair job done on his garbage disposal for $55 that way. And I'll need it as I'm not handy.
