Buy a house they said, it'll be fun they said. Actually, I really can't complain at all. We were fortunate enough to buy a brand new house and we would never take that for granted. However, buying a new house has it's issues to. For instance, most new houses don't even come with attached TP holders, towel racks or even.... blinds! Which, to be quite honest, is okay because it allows us to put our own decorative flair on the place. Wait... Friggin wait. Did I just say ' decorative flair '? Sweet Lord, take me now.

Anyway- My wife, Keri, went down to Portland Saturday with my mom and sister to go shopping. I wasn't even sure what the heck we needed that a trip to Portland was necessary, but I've come to learn, never ask a woman why we need anything she buys. Take note, fellas. Keri calls me from Portland and asks me if I want her to pick up some blinds for our windows. Naturally I said yes so we can keep out the peeping fans who are trying to get a paparazzi snapshot of my hot bod. Long story short, yesterday before the Patriot's game, I successfully installed all of our new blinds.. and they look great! And, most importantly, they freakin' work! Up, down, side to side! Wait, I'm being told they're not ACTUALLY supposed to move side to side. Oh well.

If any of you out there need some blinds installed, give me a call. I wouldn't say I'm an 'old pro', but I wouldn't say I'm a 'novice' either. And, I charge a nominal fee comparable to people who actually know what they're doing.

Bob Villa out!
