We're have to be frugal, so have always done our own home repairs... I was so proud when I put in my first window by myself. Sorry, that was a lot of info for a simple question.
I agree on the latter part of your post. I think that age has something to do with it as well. Mark is a part because he is Chism's dad. (And likeminded)
I knew there was an age difference between Roy and Chris, but did not realize it was 21 years. I did not see how long they have been married, does anyone know? In her early 40's there is no reason that Chris cannot be working full time. I guess I am not feeling the sympathy for them.
There's no place like home!
Roy is one of my favorite contestants so far. He brought a very quiet, thoughtful presence to the show. I hope he does win the at-home challenge and they can fix up their house.
ITA with your post! Even in urban/suburban areas jobs are limited right now. My oldest son has been looking in vain for a part time job. When I was younger, you just went to your local market and BOOM you were hired. Now, I go into the grocery store in the afternoon and instead of kids, you see seniors. This economy stinks!
With Santa's and Chris' current weight, I wonder how safe it would be for them to attempt roof repair. I still miss Santa, now Chism.
