I now have a complete understanding of the faces I see walking out of Home Depot on the weekends. You know the faces. People have a cart full of items you can’t identify and their faces have that look like, “you fucking talk to me and I’m going to lose it” as they push that cart out of the door.

I had that moment this week.

Hubster and I are renovating the house we bought, we don’t want to move in and then have to live through the process. We thought we made a smart move… until the Home Depot run.

I spent three hours embroiled in heated debate with Hubster and You Tube. $900 was spent on I’m not even sure what. And when I turned to push the cart out of the store I loudly proclaimed “LET’S DO THIS!”

And then paused as I finally realized why Home Depot made that their slogan – that heavy cart full of items you can’t identify practically forces the phrase from your lips.

On a side note, unique is all well and good when you’re discussing people, but horrifying news when you’re talking door sizes.

  1. I used to adore Home Depot. Now, it feels like the nails and sawdust version of Whole Foods. It has me convinced I need to marry into wealth in order to be satisfied with any DIY weekend.

    Thank goodness I’m a minimalist.

    1. I thought I was a minimalist. I was wrong. I am now just praying to hang on until the house is done and then allow my laziness to have control for the rest of my life, because there is no way I could walk into a Home Depot season after season without going completely crazy.


      1. Petting friendly dogs in the aisles of Home Despot often allows me to cling to sanity just long enough to make it to the parking lot. And I’m not even a dog person.

        Tip: The secret tactic sublimely lazy people use is to tell people. “I’m meditating.” Often, for me, it’s true but it’s also the ultimate get out of jail free card when avoiding people who do not respect my genius and nap schedule.

  2. I think the UK version of Home Depot is B&Q. Marriages are regularly tested in it’s aisles over the correct shade of cream for the living room and it is impossible to leave without denting your bank account on sandpaper and nails which must be gold plated at that cost… Popping over from Weekend Blog Share

  3. I would book an appointment with a marriage counsellor right now! Good luck with the renovation. I wisely don’t include my hubby on any renos anymore. He is safer that way. Trust me. Thank you for linking to #BlogShareLearn.
