A Porch!!

It has been decided! I'm finally havin' a front porch put on my house! I do believe I've wanted a front porch for every one of the 23 years I've lived here. I do have a nice back porch and all, but it faces east and there's no sun out there by the time I get home from work - so usually every summer night I'm enjoyin' a beautiful sunset while sittin' on concrete steps in the front. Pretty view, but not so comfortable. But no more!!! And I truly can not wait! It's gonna take a month or so until we can start, but it's ok cuz it's such a fun, cool thing to look forward to... and Lord knows I'm gonna need it.

It's finally the week to meet with the union lawyer and I'm excited and scared to death at the same time... it's been a long time comin'.

So here I was just a week or so ago thinkin' about planting flowers with no clue I was soon gonna have a porch... but the opportunity presented itself and the time is right. And it should add quite a lot to the resale value of my house. The contractor is good... really good and I've been waiting for a long time to get on his list of jobs. And now it's my turn. Yay and Amen!!!
