Maybe we can hire Bob the Builder

Well… apparently Honey Mustard and I are gluttons for punishment.

First, we made an offer on a lovely house

Second, we rescinded said offer after the home inspector said the house was a ‘fire waiting to happen’ and was… well, I can’t really say any more as I’ve suppressed those memories…

Third we thought about adding on to our house. Uh… no…

Fourth, and current, we have purchased a lot… a lot in which we will build a house.

We are going to build… a… house…

Bui— Oh my God…what the hell are we thinking?

Didn’t we see “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House”???? Or “The Money Pit”? Or “Drömkåken”????

Didn’t we see Ice Cube’s “Are we Done Yet?”? (wait, that’s right; no one saw that movie…)*

Oh my God… building a house?

...

...

Is it possible to hyperventilate in the blogosphere?


*BTW, I’m ignoring the fact that all of these movies are all in some way remakes of ‘Mr. Blandings…’

Building's easy - sure there are some speed bumps along the way, but it's far easier - and less pain in the wallet - than refurbishing/renovating a "fixer-upper."

We built because me and my Bob the Builder tool set were not up to the task of taking on a "handyman's dream."

Congratulations, and good luck. When my best friend and my sister built, they swore they'd never do it again lest they wind up divorced. Now, at least one of them is ready to do it again. It's kind of like childbirth, no? You forget how much of a pain it was over time...
