The Best of Intentions are Often Just Not Enough

Why I ever thought that blogging was a good idea for me to attempt I will never know. I am the sort of guy who has an attention span much like a gnat. And while having the best of intentions is not necessarily a bad thing, it is often times just not enough of a good thing to see me follow through. And a blog needs follow through. Consistency. Continuity. SO I apologize for not razzle dazzling you more often with the daily bull shit that has become our big renovation. Now that I have that off my chest, lets give this another shot and move on to something entertaining, like my current and hopefully temporary need for some type of anti-anxiety med. Because while I already knew it, my gloriously optimistic stupidity caused me to forget, that home renovations on a grand scale SUCK YOUR SOUL OUT THROUGH YOUR EYE SOCKETS! Can I get an amen?

SO much has happened in such a short time, I don’t really know where to begin. But I’ll try…  after the roof was replaced, and the house gutted, and a supreme pig sty of a mess created, and windows ripped out, and windows replaced, and re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-sheetrocking, and all the rest of the nonsense that happens when you try to take a house in need and make it a home, what is left is a  promise almost fulfilled. But oh what a pain it has been getting here. (Note I did not mention anything about the pig sty of a mess being cleaned up?) But it is almost over and over the next few days (or maybe weeks, given my track record) if I live to tell the tale, I will try to fill in the gaps and share some of the stories that have made this so much freaking fun!
