it's. taking. over.

Here are some recent conversations to solidify this house project is taking over our lives:

At a dog adoption event:

Ben: That dog is really cute, but I am not sure were are ready for all that.

Dan: Yeah, and it'll probably scratch our new wood floors.

Ben: Totally, we'll just give them a donation.

A typical day:

Dan: Where is the measuring tape?

Ben: In the Lowe's bag.

Dan: Which one, there are like a thousand around here?

Ben: Oh, um, no idea.

An average morning:

Ben: What are you wearing?

Dan: What?

Ben: I haven't seen that in a while.

Dan: Yeah, well, all my other clothes had sawdust on them.

Regarding anything in the house:

Ben: I hate this stove.

Dan: Yeah.

Ben: I can't wait to get rid of it.

Dan: I know. I want to blow it up right now.

Ben: I don't want to unpack our stuff.

Dan: Yeah, let's just blow it up.

Ben: These cabinets suck, I can't wait to smash them down.

Dan: I thought we were going to donate them.

Ben: Yeah, I guess. But, I still want to smash them.

OK. you get the idea.
