My parents are both in their 79s plus are absolutely bored… They have nothing to do but find projects to occupy their time, my mother enjoys doing work on the home plus my father does what she wants.
The issue is that they can’t physically do the work anymore! So when my parents need a task done, it is up to one of their kids or they hire out… I try to do whatever they want when they want it.
I just don’t constantly have the time though. The other morning I missed out on a roofing project. I didn’t want to go up on their roof anyway, but I hated that they hired roofers. I found out that my father saw two shingles in the driveway, however she then decided the roof was going to shambles. My mother then got on the PC with the first roofing company she could find plus hired them to redo the entire home roof. The roofing company then upsold them to do the garage roof as well, did they need undoubtedly current roofs? No, they entirely did not. I wasn’t too pleased that they got upsold on two current roofs. I am sure that they spent a fortune. I will say one thing positive, the work was absolutely well done. The gray shingle roofs are gorgeous plus put on the right way. It makes the home look current plus it is watertight. My parents are super happy with it as well. I mean, it is their currency. They should get to decide how to spend it.
