Wordful Wednesday-the roof

You're going to kill me. I know. I know. I promised the "big reveal" today. I worked really, really hard, yet I didn't accomplish what I needed to in order to tell you......or rather show and tell you. I will FOR SURE by next week, but until then, here's my wordful.

This is one of the things I contended with last week. We changed from a shake roof to composition and from 7:30 in the morning until 5:30 at night it was knock, knock, knock, thump, thump, thump overhead.

And did I mention that my husband was out of town the whole time? That lucky dog.

P.S. I'm so sorry to not have had Mr. Linky up sooner!

I'm here!!!! Waiting for Mr. Linky!!!!!

Kacey Randolph said...

Lucky Dog is right! I would have had to plan something to get out of there for a while!

Yeah! Wordful Wednesday! And my 100th post. Woohoo! Great timing.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Ok, me again, not being selfish like I just was. Now I am thinking about your house. But in the back of my head I am thinking, WHERE'S MR LINKY????? :)

Doug & Stacy Fournier said...

Ok, I can't even try to catch up on your blog! Thanks for stopping by and welcoming me back! You look busy as usual. Congrats on all the blogging awards, I love your blog, and I plan on trying to keep up now! Have a great week!

Jen said...

oh I can't wait for the new. mmmm, I wonder whats up?

Jocasta said...

I'm trying to beat live.life.love - where's Mr Linky????????

Oh the roof looks really good!

Live.Love.Eat said...

JOCASTA. HAH!!!!
Angie, if you get 100 hits in 10 minutes, that would be me, clicking back and forth. Ha ha. Ok, I am looking at your picture, not being selfish. Son of a gun hubby leaving at such a time :) It's just that I am playing a game and now I am pretty obsessive about it.

Liz said...

The roof looks nice - I am looking forward to taking part in my first wordful wednesday!!!

Jocasta said...

Angie, if you get 200 hits in 10 minutes that would be me as well!

live.love.eat - knows nothing about obsession!!! It's a good thing it's only afternoon here so I can wait you out! Rats I did promise my kids a trip to the zoo!

Where's Mr Linky!!!!

Mrs. S said...

Oh that's one thing I'm glad we don't have to worry about in an apartment; I don't like roofing....and I say that like I've ever done it. Just Big A has done like a million roofs...takes forever.

Oh and I'm so ready to play along for WW tomorrow!

rachael said...

i am glad you have a lovely new roof, sorry about the constant knocking and thumping though. it would have driven me mad...

sassy stephanie said...

Man, looks like your WW is a big hit! I've been way too lazy to join in the fun.

Good timing on the trip, Jeff!

Laura said...

I don't know how you survived last week. You are amazing!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

yeah for a roof - but isn't your house for sale? Where is Mr Linky?

Jennifer P. said...

A new roof is great---- constant banging and thumping, not so much ;)!

It was so fun to be featured alongside you at SITS today. I'm honored :)!

Good N Crazy said...

crap. waited for the last minute to deal with the roof eh? I hate that!

MommyWizdom said...

You must be watching the debates... Where's Mr. Linky? :-) Mine's up!

Honey Mommy said...

That would drive me crazy! At least you get a nice roof out of all the noise!

Elaine A. said...

Oh, I got to hear this last week becauset the house behind me got a new roof. So noise but now new roof for me = no fair! ; )

Oh Mr. Linky, where art thou?

Susan said...

It seems a lot of houses in our development have been getting new roofs lately. The banging does start early. I hope we can get by for a few more years before we have to do that.

Mr. Liiiinky...where aaaaare youuuuu??

Weeksie50 said...

Congrats on your new roof..
Your husband is a pretty sneaky guy lol..to get out of having to listen to the thump thump thumps..
You deserve a spa day.. and you should tell him..lol. It's only fair right?

stefanie said...

Was the noise worth it?

Mine's up.

Mrs. De Miranda said...

Ugh! Roofing is the WORST. The constant banging drives me crazy!!! But in the end it is good to have a good SOLID roof over your head!! Good luck!

AVT Coach said...

Okay, It took me all evening to get my WW post ready and I am all psyched to add my post to Mr. Linky and he is MIA!!! Looks like you are getting some of that grief over him being gone. What a great way to keep things interesting. Actually, I am guessing you have a straight jacket due to enduring the noise of the roofers and ...you just don't have hands free to properly display Mr. Linky.
He is missed!!!
Look forward to checking out all of the WW posts tomorrow!

Mamarazzi said...

oh roofing...yuck!!

where is mr linky? i will be back! mine is UP!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

Angie?? Where are YOU? Okay I hate to echo the sentiment of everyone else but WHERE IS MR LINKY? Do you have a headache? Has it stopped you from adding Mr. Linky? We're waiting.....

Casey's trio said...

Ha! You are being stalked...I'll be back in the morning.
And the knock-knock thump-thump would have driven me crazy.

Jennie said...

I want to participate, but what is wordful wednesday?

Cecily R said...

Haha! Your fans are going nuts!!! Next thing you know they will be storming your house looking for stuff of yours to sell on e-bay!

I'll come back tomorrow. :)

Jessica said...

I love that you have fans..me included..Lucky hubby being gone during that..How did nap time work for you??? Not so great I am thinking!

Rhonda said...

Well, see now your hubby hired someone and left.

My husband put his scared of heights wife up on the roof, and we did it ourselves.

I know. The Jerk.

lol

So, where is Mr. Linky?

Melissa said...

So do you like it?
How come your'e doing your house up when you're trying to sell it?

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

Angie - sorry but I put the wrong link up the first time. Will you please delete it for me? Thanks.

Tiany said...

Ha ha, I know the feeling, we just had our roof repaired after the hurricanes swept through and they started on the roof bright and early at 7am! :-)

You have a lovely blog!

Sandra Foyt said...

Sounds like your husband has perfect timing!

Mama's Losin' It said...

I had my big reveal today too...luckily I was able to pull it together!! Such pressure this blogging brings to us!

I bet that roof work got OB.NOX.IOUS!!

Munchkins and Music said...

Alright a new roof! That feels great, one more check off the list!

Darla said...

I've had the knock, knock, thumping with reroofing a few years ago and now will have it again soon...hail storms that have wreaked havoc on our area too many times in the past few years have reroofed us, resided us, and so on..and it's a noisy process!!! Nice to have the roof redone though! :)

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

But the new roof is worth it, yes?!

Melissa said...

Holy cow you've been a busy girl! How lucky is Jeff that he missed all that noise. I think you need a vacation.

Robin said...

Sounds like a nightmare. That kind of constant noise drives me mental.

mannequin said...

Aw geez. Look, she comes through with Mr. Linky.
What's NOT to love about Angie?
That's why it'll be easy to ignore the fact that she's dangling us with this secret.
I want to know what's going on by golly!!!

Brandy said...

Ugh the banging all day long would have drove me crazy or atleast out of the house! In the end though you will have a nice new roof.

CanCan said...

We found roofing nails in the yard for YEARS after our new roof!

Deb said...

hope i did it correctly! i don't want to embarrass anybody... especially myself! great blog, angie.

Sweet Serendipity said...

Wow, got Tylenol?
Happy WW!

Casey's trio said...

38 of your peeps playing by 6 am...pretty impressive:)

Carrie said...

We just had a new roof installed this past summer. It's no fun with small children. Get out of the house if you can!

Octamom said...

Hey Girl! Sounds like things are hopping at your house~
Hugs~

Blessings!

Julie said...

very cool indeed a new roof.

mommaof4wife2r said...

Amy said...

HELP! HELP!!

I guess I was not paying attention -- I was doing Wordless Wednesday and I just realized that yours says "Wordful Wednesday" -- WOOPS!! Should I be doing something different, where are the 'rules' for Wordful Wednesday? I am so bad at this blog world stuff!

Shannon said...

Did he plan it that way? Funny.

jsprik said...

latree said...

BoufMom9 said...

Glad they got it done in one weekend. I am still waiting on a roof to be finished 3 months later...UGH!

Drama Mama said...

OMG! I love the new Trophy case! It IS new right...Uh-oh..now Im second guessing myself...sorry if it has always been there and I am just now noticing it...okay Im shutting up now...

Are You Serious! said...

♥ Definately a good time to be gone... I think I would have gone crazy with all the hammering! Can't wait for the big reveal! :)

Rhea said...

Roof work is such a pain...and noisy! That in addition to all the OTHER stuff going on with you, whew!

Cristin said...

I finally got mine up!! I had a lot of words today.

Ryanne said...

Oh the headache of getting a new roof. Thanks for reminding me that someone needs to go up and see how ours is looking. Can wait for the big reveal!

GoteeMan said...

Just did ours recently as well ... good news was that the economy brought the price down significantly...

Hope your week is getting better...

hippos toes said...

Smart hubby. He planned that just right! I hope it gets fixed soon and you can enjoy some sleep. :)

Dana said...

Oh man! I was so excited a second ago when I remembered....It's Wednesday! Angie had something to reveal! I guess this is my lesson in patience that I've been struggling to learn! LOL

Kendra said...

I love home projects. Good luck with this one.

Debra said...

Oh man, you sure have people hanging by the edge of their seats Angie! LOL

I bet the boys LOVED it when they were there fixing the roof! Jeff owes you BIG TIME!

Joy said...

I feel ya on the roofing, we had 2 roofs in 3 yrs!! thankfully we didn't have to pay for them thanks to mother nature :-)

So obnoxious and all those darn nails, seriously it has been 2 1/2 yrs since the last time and I found a nail the other day!

Laura said...

Okay I signed the link and added mine :) Hope you are surviving all your craziness. I haven't heard from you so I know you busy!

Michelle said...

I just joined in and now I'm heading out to check out what everyone else has up for today!

Mandy said...

Oh.my.gosh. I have been looking for something like this!! I can NEVER make a Wordless Wednesday totally wordless!! Thank you for doing it! I WILL be participating next week!!

Mandy said...

Oh...I put your button up on my sidebar! :)

Heather said...

Made time for wordful wednesday this week. Sometimes it's a real task. Have a great weekend!!

Sarah Brooks said...

Ouch, makes my hurt just thinking about it. So sorry!

Marla @ Stolen Bon Bons said...

This is sooo much better than wordLESS Wednesday!

Tulsi said...

When we had a roof redone it took a couple of weeks because they would work hit and miss. I would like to have it done at once. Fun, fun.

I tried your black bean salsa tonight. It is so good!!

AVT Coach said...

Angie, I was cracking up this morning early reading the comments about Mr. Linky. It was getting late and I had to leave for work but I was totally planning to put a pic of Richard Gere up on my site (my fav) and say he was Mr. Linky in disquise and went MIA to my site for the day. When I got to work you had it up and running so the idea was bust..but wanted you to know your commenter were in good humor!

Jaysi said...

Sorry I am so late...but better late than never.

That is horrible. And the fact that your husband was gone is like icing on the cake. I hope he brought something fun back for you....like a new pair of shoes or something fabulous.

Caitlin said...

okay, sorry I'm new here. Would you mind explaining wordful wednesday to me? I would love to participate next week...from looking at some other posts, it looks like maybe a word-theme-picture of the day? Am I right? Sigh.. Sorry to be so slow.
Thanks!

Kelly said...

Sheesh. It's always something. I got up and stepped in dog barf this morning. Fun.

April said...

Ugh listening to roofers all day SUCKS!!! We had our roof at work done and it took over a freakin' week. SO annoying!

* TONYA * said...

How did Jeff manage to plan that trip so well???? Sounds suspicious to me.

Cheffie-Mom said...

Mr. Linky? I better read some more posts!

Eudae-mamia said...

I'm never going to reach the end of to this Blogosphere - one great link just leads to another. It's like trying to empty the Seas with a teaspoon! But it's so much fun.

Em

Stephanie said...

I hope everything has gone smoothly this week. Maybe you're getting closer to "resting your neck" again!

MoziEsmé said...

Sounds like an annoyingly noisy day!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

You are too funny, and I left you something on my blog!

Melissa B. said...

Thump. Thump. Thump. Sounds like Halloween to me! On a more serious note, you're lucky you got rid of that shake roof. Pretty big fire hazard!

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

I seriously am wondering if you read all your commenst. You are one popular gal! Sorry I haven't been able to access your blog for a week. Your house is looking great.

Kristin said...

92 COMMENTS! ok, this is just getting ridiculous. How do you keep on top of this madness?!
And I must be really slow. I haven't got a clue what the 'big reveal' is/was going/supposed to be. Did I miss it?
Congrats on your fame, btw.

Connie said...

Oooohhhh the suspense....

Genny said...

You've got me curious! :) I'll be back, of course! Good luck with the projects.

mannequin said...

where oh where is Angie?
Maybe the roof caved in.

Krazy Armstrong K's! said...

How convient of dh to be gone! lol

VE said...

97 comments? Are you insane? Wow...I can see why you don't get around to my little blog. I see your husband is wise by planning all out of town activities to correspond with major home repair. I tip my hat to him! ha ha

Michele said...

Looking forward to the link. Thanks!

Rhonda said...

Oh where, oh where did my friend Angie go?
Oh where, oh where can she be???
With her five kidlets
and a hubby also
We need her too! Oh where can she be?

AND I must point out that I am comment number 100!

Yay for me!

girlytwins said...

Can't wait to finally meet my friend :) Hope last week went smoothly for you. Hurry back :)

Zen Ventures said...
