Noise,noise, and more noise!!

The roofers are here and have been since 0730! I never knew people on the roof could be sooooo noisy! They could take a lesson from Santa!!

BTW, DA - we are having a new roof and siding put on the house. Also, a sliding glass door from the eating area in the kitchen to new deck on the east side of the house behind the garage. See what happens when you go away for a while!! We had been thinking about it for a while and decided that now was the time to do it. We are not changing the color of the house so it probably will not look much different, but we will never have to paint again and the roof is a "35 year" roof so WE will never have to roof again. In 35 years I'll be 90 and if I am still living in this house it will be a miracle and some one else can pay for another roof!!

Last night J&B and J&C came over to help us move stuff around in the garage. Since there is a huge dunpster in the driveway we really had to keep an eye on Jessica - she was in a "pitching" mood....when you weren't watching she "pitched" your stuff into to dumpster!! They also took stuff that was theirs anyway. We had to move things so they can remove the door on the side of the garage that we NEVER use when they put the siding on.
Dad and I are hoping that come spring we will be able to put both cars in the garage! Wouldn't that be novel - actually using the garage as a garage instead of a storage room!

Not much else going on. Dad, Shennie, Jenny W, and I leave on our cruise in 27 days!! Can hardly wait! I'm not sure I remember how to act on vacation!

Love you lots and KYHD!!
