It took me at two and a half months but I finally got the rotting siding replaced on the north side of my house. Well..I’m calling it done.
It really needs another coat of paint but I don’t have another month to spend on that. Why did it take so long to do such a simple job? Work and rain. Due to my 8:30-5:30 job, I have absolutely zero time during the week for ANYTHING. I cram in Community Band practice on Monday nights and a visit with mom on Wednesday nights. The other three nights I am wiped out and can do nothing but collapse on the couch and watch TV for an hour or two before I drag myself to bed at 9:00. Besides. It’s dark when I get home at 6:30 after an hour drive through crippling traffic so doing anything outside would be extremely difficult. It also keeps raining on weekends. How does it know?
It’s a good thing I don’t have friends or family because they would demand some of that precious time. I don’t know how the regular people do it. Maybe they don’t care about things like replacing siding. Maybe important things don’t matter to them.
Once I removed and replaced all the 4×8 sheets of siding, I had to fill the oops nail holes and paint. I just now finished replacing the vertical trim pieces that hid the seams. I really wish I had time and energy for one more coat of paint but it will do. Maybe another time.
Time is a precious commodity. There is so little of it available these days since time itself has sped up to ludicrous speed. Time is something that one really should appreciate to the max. I’m so glad that this is my last year to play the Time Game. I’m going to early-retire in January of 2019 if my evil plan goes smoothly. Soon time will be my bitch! It will do my bidding for a change.
Mua ha haaaaa!
