If you never did so, you should watch the movie, The Money Pit.  The first time I saw it, I laughed so hard my sides hurt and I couldn’t breathe.

But I’m not laughing now.

The first 4 days of the household renovations went well, except for the discovery of the leaky corner of the roof.  Read that story here.

    Groan. This reminds me when we built our house. We were the GC and I swear to you today I will never ever ever do anything like that again. OMG! What a nightmare. And I must watch Money Pit. I don’t believe I’ve seen it. Like you FYI I’ve been very involved with life and not often here on WP. It’s really good to cross paths with you today, CM. 🌹
