Yes, of course you do because that was only yesterday you senile lambwhore.
Well, I should know better by now than to praise for such amazing hard work before a project is 100% finished because I have never had a truly finished project in this house. Nothing has ever ended up the way it was intended and I know this. I know all of this yet I'm quick to praise. It's like premature ejaculation but worse consequences.
Matt was lounging on the couch yesterday and I was all, "HEY! How about you start putting railings on the deck you bum!" (You see that? It's called project management- it's how stuff gets done.) And he reluctantly went outside in the gorgeous weather and proceeded to do just that.
Isn't it glorious??
So I was so excited and I may have done a happy dance. To the left of the picture is where the four foot wide step is going to be, so he needs the stair stringers in before he can start on that side, which is totally reasonable. So I was like, "Hey- why don't you do the other side?"
To which he sheepishly tells me that he has a problem with that. You see, Matt failed to measure the railing sections before building the deck and just went ahead and made it 12x12 because golly gee, that is a nice even size to accommodate his wife's OCD. Except that now our problem is that this side here?
You see what I mean how NOTHING in my house can get done properly? Now, if this were anyone else's house? He would have measured everything a thousand times and would have had a draft drawing to go off of and it would have been home improvement show worthy. Our house? Ghetto fabulous all the way baby.
So he assures me he "has a plan" which better not involve buying a big grill and maybe a hedge, because this bitch will lose it.
I have also decided that since he is putting a really ugly crawl space window right there (you can see the window in the picture kind of), we're going to make a patio landing in front of the window and I'm going to put a large planter (on wheels) in front of it so you don't see the window. I'm a fucking genius. SO, I have to go online and figure out how to do that myself because I'd rather Matt spend his efforts on fixing the deck situation.
