They came yesterday about 8:30 and worked until about 12:30. They lack putting the trim on 3 of the downstairs windows and the other guy started putting siding under the porch on the ceiling. I guess they were out of wood strips and something else so said they were going back to where they come from for more supplies and would be back this morning. The guy said he really wanted to get some work done and planned to work over the weekend if that was ok with me. I told him to knock himself out!
Our gas oven was making weird odors when you used it and it would burn your eyes so I was off first thing yesterday for a new oven. Just what you want to spend your money on that you have earmarked for paying off the siding! But I guess at least we had the money to pay for it. Other than that I didn't get a whole lot accomplished other than moving the furniture in the living room and vacumming under stuff.
Today we are off to Oklahoma City to purchase a new screen door for the front door. The siding guy has to take the screen door off to do the trim so we figured it would be a good time to buy the new screen (and it will match the trim) and the siding guy said he would put it on. I am thinking I need to throw a coat of paint on that last door I bought (it is a screen door with a large removable glass area and that is where the screen is)and see if he will put it up for me too.
I am also going to buy a brass register cover for that room I just finished and am thinking about buying stuff to build some shelves for over the windows. We have a couple in the dining room and they are overflowing and I would like to have a collection of old toys on that shelf for that room.
Oh and I need some new fish. Lol...guess I don't "need" new fish, but I want some. We are taking the dogs with us (it is about 2 1/2 hrs drive) as they will let them go into Lowes, Home Depot, Pets Mart, PetCo and so they can get out and get some socializing. Their favorite part is probably the trip to McDonalds for cheeseburgers, 6 each lol.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
