It only Took 1 Year and 363 Days…

There is a joke wives love to tell of their husbands.  They all tell it as if it only applies to their particular husband, but I’m here to tell you it is universal.

Oh, that “weekend” project took him all summer…

Oh, that easy-to-setup patio only took him five years to complete…

So you want to buy this ugly statue and you say you can make a fountain out of it in a few hours… Right…

A good Japanese word for today’s theme is 中途半端 chuutohanpa – halfway measures; unfinished; half-baked

Well, it only took me 1 year and 363 days to fix our screened porch.  Here is when we discovered a hole in the screen.  And yesterday (1 year, 363 days later), I finally fixed it with the help of a friend.  Not only that, but we added a doggie door to boot.

I’ll throw up (not literally) a picture of it later.  It looks pretty sharp–thanks Gary!

Now I still have that fire pit to make…
