We've got more curb appeal!

Or something like that.... The house definitely does look cuter with the new shingles than it did with the old brown three tab stuff. But getting a new roof just isn't fun. It falls into that same category of necessary but yucky expenses as root canals and having a new well dug.

If the weather cooperates, the roofers should finish up tomorrow and I'll be that much closer to having my regular routine back. As much as I've been complaining about the noise, it's all "getting the roof on the house" noise. They don't play loud music. And they don't use foul language, at least not that me or my kids can hear. I can't say the same for the men who installed our carpet or the mean who delivered the new kitchen appliances a few years ago. I think I learned some new words from them.

Hey -- it really does look cute! Hope it's finished up without incident today! :)

Yes, it does looks cuter. So, what time would they finish it? I'm guessing it would be done by tomorrow afternoon, if the weather cooperates with them. A piece of advice: it would be better if you replace your sidings with gray colored vinyl. Your house will definitely look more balanced.
