First off, any time I use a cliche', I have to find out it's origin.
'Bite the Bullet' was first recorded in literature in 1891--The Light That Failed by Rudyard Kipling.
We all understand that it means that you are doing something you don't really want to be doing.
My 'bullet' is deciding on a barn. Or rather, paying for a barn.
I want what I want, but want it to be WAY less money.
Ha! Good luck with that! Right?
I have decided on the barn you see above. The lower half will be stone and the upper half will be stucco.
I would also like an overhang on both sides of the barn and not just one.
I'll have to figure out a way to have sliding doors AND stone walls.
I'm pretty sure it can't be done.
I keep trying to convince Eric that we don't really need to build a dream barn. Let the next owners build a dream barn. I just need someplace for my donkeys to get in out of the weather and a place to store hay.
To top it all off, neither one of us love big projects like this one.
In fact, we both hate them.
We run the other direction.
Well, not really.
We just talk about them and then never do them.
How we ever built our house, I'll never know.
In fact, I'm getting bouncy leg (nervous habit of bouncing my leg while sitting).
My brain keeps saying, "you just need a run-in shed with a place to store hay and feed".
So, I need a dream barn AND I need a project manager that will ask me no questions AND have me make no decisions AND come in well under budget.
Pigs will fly first.
Maybe I can get the pig to bite the bullet for me?
