I had Monday off. My company is nice enough to turn the 3 summer long weekends into four-day weekends. Hubby was at work, and I woke up full of plans and lists for running around. Before he left, he suggested that rather than doing chores all day, I just relax. I instantly changed into relax mode! Hopped into my bathing suit, grabbed the nearest book and hit the deck to catch some rays.

I was about 200 pages in to my book (which I have since misplaced - grr) when Steve the window guy stopped by to drop off his quote. We are looking at replacing all of the windows in our house. They are 35+ years old, and it is time. His quote came in at 10k, so about 2k less than the other guys. I really like this company and would really, really like to get this done. Hubby still isn't convinced that this isn't something we shouldn't do on our own. Have Steve supply the windows, and we'll install. Personally, I vote for having them install, I can think of much better uses for my time. We were talking about this at the barbeque on Friday, and it was a fairly obvious split. All of the women believed that they would have the windows installed, all of the guys figured it was something they could do themselves. Hubby keeps laughing at me, as last year when we had the roof replaced I was all for us doing it, but I don't want to tackle windows. I've helped changed a roof before, never touched window installation...

Anyways, it was a great day, beautiful weather, and a much needed rest.

Got some cute pics of the pup, I made tuna salad for lunch and he got the leftovers in the can:

Digging in Digging in
He ate like that the whole time - butt up in the air *g*
Who does she think she is?

Thanks! The things our pets do to keep us amused. I can't imagine life without them.

I'm with you on the windows. Ralph measured and installed the windows for our first house, and there were pretty decent gaps on some of them. :(

Your dog is so gorgeous!! I love big dogs and I just think yours is an exceptionally well-kept kiddo. He must be lots of fun. :)

Where would we be without our dogs, hmm??

More ammo for my argument re: windows!

Thanks. I'm definitely a softie for big dogs too, German Sheppards would probably be my next fav. He is a hoot, always entertaining. I can't imagine life without him, I hate being away from him for even a night.

Awww...he's so cute. I love when they eat like that. :) We had our windows professionally installed, and it was worth the extra cost. No gaps, and a good warrenty if something goes wrong.

Thanks! I wish I could make him see the sense of this, I'm sure I'll be able to convince him (or nag until he caves *g*) soon.

If they provide any kind of warranty on the installation, absolutely have them install the windows. I'm sure you and your husband could do a bang up job, but if there's a leak or some other such problem, isn't it easier/nicer/way wicked better to just call the company up and say, "Come fix my window!"?

Why do women not have a problem seeing how reasonable this is? Does the Y chromosome or testoterone hamper men's reasoning? Or does the estrogen work in our favour?

It's a pride thing. Men are biologically programmed to provide food and shelter for their families on their own. I just don't think sashed double-hung tilt windows existed when these instincts were developing in humans. :-)
