Messy Me Makeover Day 7 (I took the weekend off for a wedding and family time and personal rest, so day 7 is now being posted on Oct. 9.)
Last night I put my hand through the glass of my bedroom window.
My hand is fine but the window is not. I didn’t even hit it or fall against it; I barely touched it. Unfortunately, these original 1964 single pane windows are thin and unstable. Many of them have little to no remaining caulk or weather stripping to hold the glass in place against the deteriorating wood frames.
At least two others are already cracked, so it was a matter of time before one of them broke completely. Still, it happened when I was chasing prankster children out of my room, so I’m definitely giving my kids part of the blame!

(Ah, not such a big deal, right? It’ll just go along with all the other gouges around here. Insert eyeroll.)

(Now what? Replace just the glass or go ahead and replace the whole window?)
Sigh. What’s busted up and broken down in your home?
