The House

1st Work Weekend at 1220 Madison 011

How it feels to own a house:

Like an endless to do list.

Except.

People are happy for you and they want to help you. Again weight off your shoulders and cement shoes. Starting to like this feeling.

People are willing to help, and although I am typically the person to say thank you but no thank you. I am currently the person posting on facebook that I have a two page to-do list and all willing competent workers are welcome.

I do pay with free beer burgers and brats does that count?

Oh and girlscout cookies while they last.

I play a hard bargain.
