Weekends are for…

home improvement projects.
The latest one that we have completed (notice I say completed and not started, or started and abandoned half way through, or ignored for the past 6 months in hopes it will complete itself) is the screened sunporch floor. We had this screened in porch added to the back of our house three years ago.
Having a contractor in my house is something I hope to never ever repeat again. Turns out I am not as comfortable as playing the bitch role as one might think. It got really old, really quickly and as a result there are several things that we are not happy with, some minor, some pretty major, all because I just didn’t feel like fighting any more. Did I mention I was pregnant while it was all going on?
Two weeks ago Rob sanded the porch floor and then I sealed it. Finally.
And I find myself thinking, like I always do, what took us so long?
Here is my desk where I work, in theory, while my children frolic nicely in the backyard, in theory.
The reality is not quite so harmonious. And I bet my neighbors often wish we would all just go back inside the house.
