Let the chaos begin

Again…

Setting appointments to get estimates for the metal roof.

And we know what that means – we have to decide and agree on a color and style…?!  A color that we will have to live with for the 30+ YEARS.  Yea, no pressure, right??

Oh dear.

And I get to be solo since Mr. just started a new job… 

Sidenote and slight rant:  I swear I have never ran into so much “don’t worry your pretty little head, where’s your husband?” before this build!  Don’t get me wrong, I love being treated like a lady as much as the next one – you want to move the heavy things for me, I will gladly accept the help!  But if I am the one asking the questions/purchasing the materiel’s/ect, at least give me the common courtesy of speaking to me, not at me or (worst!) speaking to the male that is with me.  end rant

Buuuuuuuut – do you know what a roof means?!  It means gutters can be installed.  Gutters mean rainwater can be caught and stored.  And stored rainwater means :drum roll please: a flush potty!!  {Just picture all of us doing major happy dance here}

Knowing how much closer we are and knowing how cold it has been I posed another question to the children.  Remember before I asked if they wanted electricity or a flush potty.  The answer immediately and in unison – flush potty.  This time I changed it up – insulation to stay warmer/cooler or a flush potty.  The answer came again, immediately and in unison – flush potty. 

Apparently they are serious in their desire…

Which then translates into semi-finishing the bathroom…  and then mama’s head explodes with the ever growing “must get done yesterday” list and all the newly aquired knowledge about and how to complete said tasks…

Like – did you know a metal roof reduces cooling energy needs by 23%!  But there are 5 million different ways to plumb the same bathroom…

Here we go, one step at a time with major motivation – a flush potty in the very near future!
