I built a fence!
Though this was not recently. This was… what? Two years ago? Yeah. Two years ago. We built it in the back yard to replace the rotting fence that was falling over back there. We did it ourselves with the stuff we bought from Lowe’s and/or Home Depot.
We were quite pleased with it.
That is until we had windstorms. Now it’s falling over again.
So I’m saying “heck with it” and paying a professional to rebuild the fence. He said that the fence actually looks pretty good, apart from the falling over, so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem at the end of the day.
But it’s no longer “my” fence. It’s now “the” fence.
That said, this one will be erected by a professional and it should be able to withstand the next windstorm.
And the best part? Maribou needs the car tomorrow for Free Comic Book Day and so *I* will be stuck at home doing laundry while some other person repairs my fence and there isn’t anything I can do but stay home. By the way check out http://laundromathoustontx.com/ a laundry service that is open 24 hours.
My goodness, I can’t wait.
So… what’s on your docket?
