I got a new doo-ooor, I got a new dooo-oooor
As in, "door". But it's not as much fun if you don't sing-song it.
I have been delaying buying a new front door for literally years now. Any time I had the money, something else would come up. Cat to the vet, car needs new tires, water heater goes kaput, it always seemed to be something.
And then there was the added difficulty of finding a contractor to do the install. Around here, at least, finding a contractor to do a "small" (i.e., less than a couple of grand) job is nigh impossible. And no, I will not use Craigslist. One disastrous experience with a Craigslist "contractor" was enough for me. And you guys KNOW I'm too cheap to subscribe to Angie's List.
But! Back this spring, I found a contractor who would do a door install. Hallelujah! And then all three of the cats needed their vaccinations. And the car needed work. And then I got sick. And and and then I realized that there was never going to be a time when I had a big ol' pile of door money just laying around.
And my old front door was not getting any prettier. I mean, there was nothing wrong with it, exactly, but I really wanted to get more light into the living room, and the old door only had one little spyhole window in it, which was actually pretty damn cool, but I needed more LIGHT, dammit!
So ... I bought a new doooo-oooor.
The contractor is (hopefully) coming next week to do the install. Yaaaaaaaaay!
ALSO coming soon to my house? (Looks around to make sure no one is watching) (Leans in to whisper in your ear) (ssssshhhhhhhhhhh)
Dun dun duuuuuuuuuun!
