Hey everyone, Mr. 1500 here with a rare Friday post. Actually, it’s a guest post on Planting our Pennies.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I like to complain, especially on Thursdays. I’m not really an angry or unhappy person, but writing about my annoyances is therapeutic. Mrs. 1500 gets tired of hearing my ranting, so I turn my angst into words for your reading displeasure.
Today, I write about my home remodeling project. It has been a long battle. I had to fire one carpenter (“carpenter” used here in the loosest of terms). In the middle of the project, another carpenter discovered that his wife was cheating on him. There was a lot of yelling after that and he quit soon after.
Too much drama.
Despite the wayward contractors, I did much of the work myself, only hiring out the carpentry and drywall. I also have a full time job and two children who greatly enjoy tormenting each other. And then there is this blog. All of these things have consumed me for the past 2 years. Normal bedtime? Nope. Eight hours of sleep. Almost never. Frayed nerves and weight gain caused by a poor diet? Yep!
Lately though, I have a lot to be happy about. After almost two years of spending lots of money and time, I’m just about done. And it feels good. Click over to Planting our Pennies to read all about it.
I see that you’re still here. There is nothing more here to see. Please move along now. The Penny Planters are expecting you and they don’t appreciate tardiness. OK, I’ll show you one more picture:
It’s Spendosaurus passed out on the floor after an evening of drinking. He can be a very naughty dinosaur. Who needed to see this? Now please, click over to the Penny Planters. I promise you that they will show you no pictures of drunken dinosaurs.
