The Best Way Ever to Spend Your Money

We had an expensive weekend over here at the Osbott house.  We redid our roof!  I was just kidding about that fun way to spend your money thing.  A roof is the least fun way I know to spend a bunch of money.  It's a lot of work and you don't really get any enjoyment out of it besides not having a leaky house. 

However, we were extremely lucky that we have some great friends and family who were willing to help us out with it on Friday and Saturday.  Doing the roof yourself significantly cuts costs and so we are so appreciative to everyone who came out to help.

My assistance came in the form of food.  I bought the food and made some of the food.  Ryan's mom brought some as well an we cooked up a bunch of hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone at lunch.  Moral of the story, to get people to help you, make sure you provide them with sufficient beer and food.  But not too much beer, they are on a roof after all.
 It was touch and go for a while as twice during the day there was a pretty big thunder storm.  This resulted in a few wet spots in our house as it kind of came out of nowhere the first time and the roof wasn't fully tarped.  But luckily, they didn't last long and they were able to finish the roof.
It's nice that it's done and we don't have to worry about it anymore.  Now we can think about spending our money on something that is a bit more fun - a new deck! 

Pipsi had a rough day running around the house playing with my mother in law and brother and trying to figure out where all that noise was coming from!  So she was totally wiped out by the end of the day!  It's exhausting being a cat she says.
