Learning to take Breaks from Hard Work

This being the third summer of working on our house, Steve and I are finally learning how to take just a few breaks from work and getting smarter...and poorer in the process. While we still do the majority of the projects ourselves and at least part of every project we hire out to cut down on costs, we have learned that we need to leave some time for fun as well as work. In addition, we probably would have truly killed ourselves by now due to amount of work and 107 degree heat over the past two weeks if we had not hired a wonderful contractor to help rebuild our front porch...did we say that it's over half way done and we've only done a couple hours of demo work?

  1. Glad you guys are getting some good rest and recreation in among the summer projects. I can't believe the heat you all have had! It's even made the news out here!
