#ThinkKit 7: Alla-Kazam – Raise the Roof

Gosh, if I had a magic wand… there are so many dumb little things that I would make happen (after world peace, of course).

Freshman 15 that I’ve never been able to get rid of. Poof — gone! Self-organizing closets. Done! Hangovers. Never again!

But if I had to pick one thing (and this is how I know I’m getting old) in 2015, I would wave my magic wand over this 2 BR/2BA house that I’ve shared with my husband for a few years now, and raise its roof a good two or three stories.

We’ve decided that 2015, fingers crossed, is The Year of Our New Home. But if I had it my way I would simply (!) add two or three more bedrooms, another bathroom, a laundry room and a sweet band practice-friendly basement, and push the neighbors’ homes a little further away to expand the yard, right here on our cul-de-sac.

When I tell people that I live on the northwest side of town, in Pike Township, and that I *gasp* actually like it, I really mean it. Unfathomable, right?! No.

Our neighborhood isn’t the best, but it’s so diverse and kid friendly (I guess this will matter to us at some point). We’re so close to 465 and 65, making it so easy to get anywhere we need to go. We’re right off of 56th, making my commute to Broad Ripple real easy too. (We’re in the commute sweet spot for both Joe and me.) We have the best restaurants in the city right down Lafayette, on and around 38th St. Yeah, I said it! The best! Plus, a million other things.

Anyway, that’s what I would do with my magical wand. As much as I’m looking forward to having more space, I’ll be sad whenever we leave this home.

Today’s prompt: Wave your magic wand – whoosh – what would you transform, create, or make disappear in 2015?
