The demo man (AKA "The Sarge") must think I am crazy. I call him, text him, talk very excitedly and ask him stupid questions like Are you alright?-- yes really. I worry about people getting injured all the time. I can't turn the "mom thing" off.

The only way that this could be more fun is if I was actually there, driving the excavator myself. woooo hooo

The Sarge is very calm and professional. I think I gave him 3 different phone numbers for calling/texting/emailing pictures and possibly video, and he did put me down gently. I wonder if he's ever had a female client this excited over his work. I am too afraid to ask.

So I take what I'm given. I wish I had some video though. sigh.

Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
