Notes to my future self.

If hindsight is 20/20, what would foresight be? Perhaps Superman x-ray sight. Anyway, here are some notes to my future self for 2015.

Don’t hire Lowe’s ever again to do any kind of construction work. When Lowe’s installed the replacement windows in January, 2014, they didn’t caulk the windows. Result? Leaky windows. Water dribbles, and pours in some cases, into the house. This means that cold air will also dribble, and pour, into the house. (Present self’s chore: caulk all the windows! WTF! $8000 and I’m caulking windows!)


Tell me again why I hired Lowe’s to put in the windows?

Purchase an extension ladder. A friend loaned me an extremely long ladder. It’s not an extension ladder, which means it stays extremely long and top heavy. This means both Chris and I have to maneuver it, making the production a vaudeville routine, but I seem to be the only one laughing.


That window might be history!

Buy gutter screens. Let’s face it, cleaning gutters is a frustrating, and often times, dangerous chore. Add to the activity the impatience of a 20-year-old, and the whole thing forces oneself to rethink home ownership (and motherhood).

"Mom, hurry up!"

“Mom, hurry up!”

Two hours later, we had only completed one half of one side of the house!

Though we did manage to add some new swear words to our vocabularies, so the activity wasn’t a total loss.

Last note to future self, buy a plane ticket to Tuscany.

Blessed be. :}
