what "upgrade" was worth it?

Wow that is cheap

All the decorations are yours? They just charge labor?

This is just for our main large tree (artificial)in the living room - it already has several thousand lights but is about 10 years old - so there are numerous strands of lights that don't work when we pull it out each year.  This guy unweaves those strands and puts in new ones.  The light strands are wrapped around a lot of the branches and not just "draped" around the tree so it's a giant pain in the ###. 

We only do simple outside lighting around the door with a wreath - but if we did ...I would use this guy as well.  I don't do that stuff ...or lawn maintenance.

Money can’t buy happiness. But Jesus it can make your weekends more pleasant.

Honestly do less and less around my house over time, and feeling a little emasculated about it. At this point I may as well have someone in to play with my kids and service my wife.

Don’t you just mean you need to find out who he is and pay him?

it's 28". plenty big.

this was very wet, very heavy snow and when the plows come through the end of my double wide driveway gets buried in basically, ice boulders. snowblower can't chop those up. 

i've also got a back patio to do. and i rake the roof. it takes time.

It is amazing to me in 2019 that we can outsource both our poop picking up AND our poop sending. What a time to be alive.

it's basically a squeegee to scrape snow off the roof. prevents ice dams in the eaves.

I'm a huge craft beer fan but after a half dozen I need something refreshing that will help hydrate me.  Like a white claw or a BL.

When I want hydration I go with water, rather than the diluted versions ;)

I think studies have shown that pretty much the only thing we spend money on that creates any sort of real happiness is paying people to do crap we don't want to do.
