Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Our home is in construction mode while getting every window and screen replaced on both floors of the house. That mode includes workers using our downstairs bathroom – the window company didn’t provide an onsite porta potty – and noise, dust, and BUGS everywhere. They started their work last Wednesday and by Friday I had counted 12 mosquito bites on my body. Let’s face it, when a window is removed, bugs make a run for the border…that border being the portal into our home where a window used to be. So here it goes, my attempt at lightening my mood as there are two more days remaining of work this week.

  • Do you want to hear a construction joke? Oh, sorry, I’m still working on it.
  • I find construction work to be riveting.
  • I never wanted to believe my dad was stealing from his job as a road worker but when I got home, all the signs were there.
  • My electrician friend accidentally blew the power to the ice-making factory, now they’ve gone into liquidation.
  • Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows.
  • Google says, “I know everything.” Facebook says, “I know everyone.” The internet says, “Without me, you’re all nothing.” Electricity says, “Keep talking, fools.”

    These are hilarious, Irene! What a pain, but the windows will be nice when everything is completed. We could never do that this time of the year with temperatures near 100 and high humidity. Plus, we’d have tree frogs all over our house, too. 🙂 Hang in there!

      Oh my goodness, tree frogs? No thank you. It’s also disturbing to our 1-year old grandson who stays with us Mondays and Tuesdays. Gonna have to put him in his car seat and drive around for an hour so he can sleep.
