and holy hell where did January go? I usually hate January. For me it’s the absolute longest month of the year and it usually draaaaggss mercilessly. Â Apparently January got the whining memo I sent it because damn, I blinked and it’s gone.
The contractor woes continue. Â Carpet was supposed to be done last week. House cleaners were due to come in today. Â Well, carpet not only wasn’t done last week but won’t be done until the END of this week (I’m not holding my breath) Â The guy measuring for blinds didn’t even show up. Â Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why do I need a guy to measure windows? Â Well, I don’t. I measured. I brought measurements in but oh no, they won’t accept MY measurements. They want their guy to do it. You know, the one who didn’t show up. Â And now the housecleaners are pushed back to next week.
At this rate, it’ll be NEXT January before we get all this crap done, and I have to tell you, I’ve spent the last week running back and forth between new house and old house and it makes me grumpy when I sit there forever for someone who doesn’t show up after telling me he will be there at 8:15. Â Do I sound grumpy? Â I assure you I am as sunny and as cheerful as ever. (Yikes, that lightning bolt was close…)
I wonder if my editors will accept an excuse of “I couldn’t write because I was too busy cursing Lowes”
Works for me!
