There’s nothing fun about installing a new roof. It’s expensive, it’s loud, you have strangers walking on the house, there’s unforeseen added expenses–no fun. But every 25 years or so, it’s necessary.
I would much rather spend money on bike riding adventures. For the cost of a roof, I could spend an entire summer cycling through Europe. But I can’t look at it that way. I need to remember that it’s good to have a home to go to when you’re done with a long ride.
