When we moved into the house in 2006, this is what it looked like:
The front door was an older wood door with a half moon glass piece with a steel security door on the outside. Not pretty. So, in 2008, I changed it to a beautiful mahogany door:
Except, there was a draft problem. We had always had a draft from the front door (even with the old door), but I was getting more and more fed up with it. So, a few weeks ago I went to Lowe's and bought a security storm door.
I opted to have Lowe's install it. While the installer was a little difficult to schedule time with, and showed up 3 hours late, he actually did a great job putting the door in.
This door has changed our lives. Not only does it keep the draft out (we notice a huge difference in the heat levels downstairs), but when it's open it floods the living room with light. I only wish I had done it sooner.
Alright, so Benny is not my real name. It's my nickname. In fact...I am a lady (by gender, not necessarily by attitude). But, it is fun, and makes me feel "tougher" when talking about painting and tiling and smashing things.
I didn't give it to myself. It is a childhood nickname which came from Benjamin Bunny (the cousin of Peter Rabbit).
In fact, Benny is a common nickname for Bernadette. Ever see Circle of Friends with Minnie Driver? Yup, her name was Benny in that.
Anyway. . .
