An Expensive Date Night

My husband and I have an exciting, no, an interesting, life. Most “date nights” consist of a trip to Menards (or Lowes, Home Depot, Fleet Farm, etc; you get the idea). As we approach the top of the chimney (we are above the roof), we are getting ready to begin the next project – a 40’x60’x14′ man cave. Since we were supposed to start the project last fall (why we didn’t is a long story) we have many of the building materials purchased and on site already. Well, except for a couple big items – trusses, siding and roofing materials. 

We have made three trips to Menards over the past 48 hours. Wow! That was expensive and we didn’t get it all! We laugh about it in real time. Friday night or Saturday night, we usually have the place to ourselves. We wander the aisles. We are often in their longer than we need to be. Sometimes before supper but usually after. So while other couples are bowling, at the movies or having a cocktail at the brewery, we are hanging at our favorite big box store. 

I love our life. Crazy, but good. I’m hoping after these major construction projects are over that landscaping will feel like a cake walk. 


Oh, I should mention that dinner was almost free due to a gift card from my realtor thanking me for my business. Thank goodness after what we spent this weekend!
