The roof, the roof, the roof is on…

no, not fire (thankfully), but I have that song stuck in my head. ;)

We’re getting our roof reshingled on Saturday thanks to a hail storm last year that caused enough damage that insurance is covering the whole thing (less our deductible).

The shingles and all the materials will be delivered to our driveway on Friday, then work begins bright and early at 7 or 8 on Saturday morning. Zzzzz. It’s a bit early for my taste but at least they will only be tearing off the old shingles for the first few hours so that shouldn’t be as noisy as all the hammering, right? :)

I have a newborn photoshoot to do Saturday morning anyway so I’ll be getting out of the noise for a few hours. :)

We have to take down any pictures/hangings on our walls because they could get knocked loose with all the vibrations so I imagine I’ll be spending Friday doing that. Gives me a good reason to dust them all too. Who knows when the last time that happened was.

Speaking of dusting, I’ve been on a major cleaning streak since we got home from CA. Today alone I cleaned the upstairs bathroom while bathing Ava (hooray for baking soda as a cleaner so we weren’t trapped in there with toxic fumes), vacuumed the upstairs, the stairs and the main floor, bathed the dogs outside in the yard (gosh, they were stinky), as well as played with Ava outside for quite a while, did a little yardwork and made dinner (veggie burritos w/ guac). Oh, I even watched the season finale of LOST (online) while Ava napped because I missed it the night before. What craziness that was! It was a good productive day.

The whole roof construction is only supposed to take one day (hooray!) so we’ll still have Sunday and Monday (Jody has the day off) for some peace and quiet. Maybe we’ll just sit outside and admire our new roof. ;) Hmmm, probably not. But it is nice to be getting it replaced inexpensively, especially since we’ve been talking about trying to sell our house in the next year or so.
