Homeowner tales

I did a home improvement project the other day.  It required three different materials, in different quantities.

And, I didn’t have to go to Lowe’s once.  That felt very odd.  I’m used to having to go at least once to get supplies, but I had enough leftovers that a trip for more was unnecessary.

It did make the project go very quickly, which was nice.  But I’ve resolved to go to Lowes today, to restore balance and order to the panet. 


  1. Just a tad on the compulsive side, perhaps? >;o)

  2. AuntSusie says:

    I often feel “withdrawal” from Home Depot since leaving the remodeling business. Home projects just don’t take me there often enough.

  3. Mrs. Fred says:

    If it makes you feel better, Mr. Fred AVERAGES two trips per day to our local fix-it-up store! (Maybe your trips and his will average out eventually.)

  4. Don’t forget the most important part of the “stocking up” trip — the bratwurst!

  5. Thanks, I just had a feeling something was amiss yesterday.
