This year - it is our personal turn to deal with the road construction..in front of our home. Our road is closed from April to October for them to install new water lines, gas lines, sewer connections, roads, curbs, sidewalks, grass and boulevard trees.
Yes, we can rid ourselves of our lead pipes circa 1910 and now flush our toilets without fear of back-up into our tubs and basements...aahhh...progress and modern living. There is nothing like living in the big city. This 100 year old home is going to feel so refreshed.
See that cloud of dirt/dust way down yonder..that is what the inside of my house looks like now daily...I will need lots of help dusting when this is over.
The kids love watching the big trucks(I will not name any of these, as I have no idea what they are called...) dozers, diggers, cranes, trucks, etc all look the same to me..and when the girls ask me what they are...I call them "worker-doohicky truck thing-a-bobs" and then I tell them to run down and ask Owen, our 5 year old boy neighbor.
What I like about this project - is not watching the trucks..but watching this every day..yes, I am shallow..but I should get some benefit out of this inconvenience too...and why they heck do you think I am making my children have a Lemonade Stand every day now.
..oh my , he is wiping the sweat from his brow..I think I am getting the vapors(oh wait..we don't get those up here in the North Country...)
