If they work every single weekday from Next Monday on, that gives them 12 days in which to complete all of the above. Do you think that will happen? I don’t. I really don’t think that will happen. If it does happen, there is a likely chance that it will be half-assed and shitty work in order to get it done in time. Which will royally piss me off because these are the two most important and most seen rooms in the house. They are the rooms that I have spent TONS of time picking out new colors, a new paint scheme, and new art for the walls. This will make me very very angry. I am trying to not let all of these thoughts ruin my holiday season and my birthday.
Other things that I am trying not to be cranky about? The fact that I haven't parked in my garage since July. I have rolls of old carpet in my driveway. There are always half drank bottles of pop/cappachino/water in the house, on the window sills, on the scaffolding, etc. There is a giant red trailer taking up a heavy portion of our driveway. I can't park anywhere near the door without the workers parking me in, because you know they need to park closer to my house than me. It must be a rule. I can't walk around in my underwear because there are people there, and even when there aren't people there, there are no blinds or curtains. Oh and we haven't had lights in the main part of our house since the beginning of October. But these are all just parts of remodeling I guess.
Breathe. Smile. Breathe. Smile.
