A man’s got to know his limitations – Clint Eastwood

Well I’m back and been a little bit busy, that is why I skipped posting last weekend.

Last Friday morning  I took Lynn to the emergency room and he spent the night in ICU so they could get his heart back in rhythm.  That was a little scary for both of us.  It has been a week since they have tried to get his medication to stabilize his heart.  Next Wednesday he will be visiting with his heart doctor and we will see where we go from here.  But this blog isn’t about Lynn’s sickness, but then again it is.

Lynn is a very or should I say varry stubborn Scotsman.  This porch would have been done a long time ago, except Lynn felt he could do it with me, and we wouldn’t have to “pay someone to do what we could do.”  Well, try as I might, I tried to make that so.  But we are now headed into the rainy and cold time of the year, so we had this long heart to heart, and he has, kinda consented to letting me hire someone to finish the porch roof.

I think the clincher for me was when I came home from work on Wednesday and my poor Kinzie was soaked to the bone with water and mud.  She has a dog house, but doesn’t know what to do with it.  I don’t believe she has ever gotten in it.  There is also a shed that doesn’t have a door and she could have easily gotten in there, but nope, not gonna’ happen.  She has to be on the porch sleeping by the back door so she can protect her family from wayward pigs.  That’s right a very big pig.  Never know what you are going to wake up to in the country.

So, where was I… Oh yeah, we are going to hire someone to finish the roof.  I still need to do the railing and painting and putting up the picture rail, and Lynn will do the minor electrical, maybe.  But I am waiting on a contractor to call to give us a quote.  Shouldn’t be very much and they can probably whip it out in a day.  We gotta keep our puppy dry.

Speaking of puppy (aka Kinzie), today is her birthday and she is 2 years old.  Our pets give us so much unconditional love, and they live in the moment, something we should all practice.

Stay with me an I will update you on our new journey.

Annie, the general contractor 🙂
