keeping the bears happy ~
Why? Why? Why does every little project that needs to be done turn into a bigger project than what you thought it would be????
It seems that everything we touch lately goes haywire and escalates into something more.
Take my door for example. We needed to replace it because the framing around the glass was all cracked and beyond repair. Okay... this should be a simple enough project.
We go and buy a door .... remember now.... we have to travel 200 plus miles out of town to do this. We have measurements and everything with us. We talk with the salesman ... everything seems in order. We get home and WHAT!! It's the wrong size.
Our house walls are 2 x 6 .... not 2 x 4 like the door is intended for. Why didn't that salesman point that out to us??? Stupid idiot.
Well... the door is in ... but we need to do some work on the trim work inside now to make adjustments of two inches:
It's a minor problem; but one none the less if that salesman would of pointed this out to us before hand. grrrrrrr
Little things like this really rattle the cage of my sometimes OCD afflicted Dear Hubby. He gets like a snarly grizzly bear and if poppa bear ain't happy, mama bear ain't happy.
Which brings us to this:
FINALLY ~ after two days of shear frustration there is smoke curling out of the chimney of the outdoor wood stove :)
Poppa Bear had to replace a pressure valve and the expansion tank ... more grizzly growling going on ... but it's done!! Mama Bear is happy :)
THEN there's this project going on:
Where we used to have bait tanks in the garage when we had a bait shop we are now putting in a sink and counter and a small hot water heater ... so Dear Hubby can clean up out there when he's skinning his fur from trapping, etc...
It'll be good when that's done and I won't have to listen to him growling anymore :)
So in the meantime ...
... I'll make him some pea soup. Soup is good for the soul. I heard it can calm the ornery right out of a grizzly.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
