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!

    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.

    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????? ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s just that I am playing a game and now I am pretty obsessive about it.

    Jocasta says

    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 says

    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!

    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!

    Jennifer P. says

    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 :)!

    Elaine A. says

    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?

  11. 58

    Susan says

    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 says

    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?

  13. 61

    Mrs. De Miranda says

    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!

  14. 62

    AVT Coach says

    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!

    Renรฉe aka Mekhismom says

    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 says

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

  17. 78

    Cecily R says

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jessica says

    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!

  19. 80

    Rhonda says

    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.


    So, where is Mr. Linky?

    Renรฉe aka Mekhismom says

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

    Tiany says

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You have a lovely blog!

    Mama's Losin' It says

    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!!

  23. 107

    Darla says

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. 115

    Melissa says

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

  25. 117

    mannequin says

    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!!!

  26. 118

    Brandy says

    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.

  27. 129

    Carrie says

    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!

  28. 133

    Amy says

    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!

    GoteeMan says

    Dana says

    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

  38. 177

    Debra says

    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 says

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!

    Tulsi says

    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 says

    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!

  44. 199

    Jaysi says

    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.

  45. 200

    Caitlin says

    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.

  46. 208

    April says

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

    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.

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

    Melissa B. says

    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!

  50. 247

    Gunnisac Sandersons says

    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 says

    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.

  52. 262

    VE says

    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

  53. 270

    Rhonda says

    Oh where, oh where did my friend Angie go?
