Life, as I once knew it, is over.

The roof guys, who came and power-washed the roof and left a thick pile of mud and dead leaves all over the front steps and walk, have departed.

The driveway guys, who came and ripped up the old asphalt, redesigned the driveway, poured concrete, smoothed it to perfection, and then removed the framework, have gone.

The deck guys, who came and ripped out the old back steps and deck, and then spent a couple of weeks sawing and hammering and leaving chunks of wood all over the back yard, finished today.

Without guys just outside playing loud bad classic rock, talking in loud voices, using power tools, interrupting me to ask me what I'd like them to do, and asking to use my washroom or for a check, frankly, I don't know what I'm going to do.

Take pictures and post them on the internet?


  1. HaHa!!
    You are just going to have to find something else to have torn up and replaced! LOL!

  2. Wow - it must have been the day for Projects To Be Finished. Our contractor informed me today that he was finished ... not as in finished for the day, but FINISHED. FOREVER. (You could probably hear the angels weeping tears of joy all the way up there in Poppyville.) That basement finishing-out project has taken over a year to complete, but oh Poppy, I hope you are as pleased with your results as we are here! I can't go straight to, "It was so worth every day and dime of it!" but almost ....

  3. I'm guessing the sound of silence must be pretty loud.
