So, a few weeks ago, Nelson says to me, "Check out the roof outside of Oscar's room. There's been some Damage."
And I say, "Like from a tree limb?
And he say, "Or a meteorite."
Being that if our house was struck by a meteorite it would probably have burned to the ground, I'm pretty sure it was a tree limb. Also, I don't know if my homeowners insurance would cover meteorite damage and that's not the kind of question I want to ask them. Because while it might be funny, in my experience, insurance adjusters aren't really funny type people.
Anyways, the damage looked like some broken shingles and Nelson figured he could just fix that. Because he is an engineer, a plumber, and now a roofer. I wanted to call the appropriate professional, however in the interest of my husband's ego, I did not insist.
Well, the broken shingles were only the tip of the iceberg. There turned out to be a sizable hole in the actual roof below the shingles, meaning we needed to get a professional out to fix it, Nelson not actually being a roofer and all. Although he did do an excellent job patching the hole.
Well the roofer comes out and finds ANOTHER hole in the roof as well and tells us it will be $650 to patch the holes and closer to $2500 for a new roof (just over the kitchen and porch), which is what the recommend (of course) to prevent further damage from being done. My father-in-law feels we should just sell our home in this super shitty economy rather than repair our roof because that makes sense.
So, is anyone still here because this is some kinda boring?
On to better loses, my ass can no longer hold up my pants. So I got a size smaller this weekend and you know what? They're too big as well. No kidding. I've gone down two pant sizes in the past eight weeks. So now I get to break out my less-fat jeans, woo-hoo! Before you know it, I'll be in my chubby jeans.
AND, I've met my first goal: I'm back to my Miles pre-pregnancy weight, and less than six pounds away from my Oscar pre-pregnancy weight. Yippie!
So, in closing, I'm losing my roof, my pants, and a whole lot of weight.
