Do these look like "pretend" patio doors? Yes, they are display doors but they are not pretend. Why did I think they would be pretend doors? Because I'm stupid, that's why. It hurts when you try to walk through them.

These are some of our new windows...and no, I didn't try to walk through them. There is no design on them, that is just a hallway with more doors behind them. I like the top transom design.

Doors, windows, carpets, hardwood's so hard to choose. What if it looks like a dogs breakfast by the time it all gets together? I have a feeling we will have to live with some screw ups.

So, what has everyone been up to while I have been blowing a hole in our life savings? I have been decluttering and cleaning the house. After I am finished a room nobody is allowed to in it. It shall remain a shrine until we put the house up for sale. I don't care if you have to go to the bathroom, hold it.....until we sell (I have been heard shouting). Don't mess with a woman on a mission.

I have encountered weird people lately.... sales people mainly. How do they remain so ... perky? Why when I enter their offices do they greet me like they are my best friend ever? I have to pick them up by the hair while they are kissing my flip flops and give them a shake. Sometimes I act unreasonable just to see their reaction and most times they will throw in an extra door or window just to shut me up. I don't know what I'm going to do with that extra west wing they promised, sell it on E Bay I guess. I'm getting good at this.

I love those windows! Now, you've got me wondering if I could have them installed one weekend when my husband is camping and maybe he won't notice them when he gets home. What d'ya think?

Oh YES! I love the windows too. Keep doing what you're doing to get the extra stuff and just ship it on down south here. I'll do something with it. :-)

Dawn said...

I love your windows, too! They are really nice. I will gladly take any extras!! :)

LOVE Those Windows!!! Haven't seen that design here! Like the top cross window on top...Does it open too?

Joan said...

Donna...nope the top doesn't open, and if it would they would probably charge us a gazillion Canadian dollars!
