Sorry about the typo errors but blogger won't let me go back and make any corrections, I barely got the pics added in there. I will,do it when I get to the big computer in the morning. Meanwhile it will be a game to see if your mind can fill in the right words that make sense! LOL.
Jay sent me a text the other day and said, LOL in the text. FRank wanted to know why he was sending me lots of love. Were we both not married to other people? What? I said, show me where he says that. Sure enough Jay had said, that was funny, LOL about the guy sweeping rather than sleeping. No LOVE involved. I guarantee if I were sleeping with a contractor, my house would be finished!!!
I pile up the three new dog beds into a corner of the room.
We were looking at what Adam had done today. I hear some grunting and scrabbling and walked into the room to fine this guy struggling to get up on top of the skyscraper of beds! He was determined to make it, and he did. I had to give him a "butt up" push, but he was sooo happy. King of the mointain, he as! Those short alligator,legs,almost did him in.
Adam had a checklist I gave him for the last Sometimes,you just need two or three guys. I tried to offer to help, citing my perfect 22.5 degree corners around the kitchen windows they had been preciously admiring. And a couple of nice 45s. They weren't buying it. Most likely sexual discrimination. You're a girl. Or fear that I could know more than they would. Could be the latter.
I have to hand it to Adam, though. When Jay called him at 2 pm to pull him off my job, he said no, that he had pro,owed me he,was found to finish this one.
I needed the kitchen cabinets redone a THIRD time. The ones on the ends would open fine until they but the Door trim on The trim restricted the door from opening and I couldn't get the pantry drawers open.
Then I started looking at all the places this would happen, it was 4 total. Sh he pulled the cabinets once again and reset them.
We have decided that if we can't get workers to come, we will just do what we can to get the trim pices put in ourselves. And then start readying each room to paint.....and paint one room a t a time. And we can build shelves. Built the ones that were in there before!
I will start tomorrow applying the drying spackle and sanding it down even. Room by room until they get in their heads to come back and work. I can say they were surprised by the quarter round I had installed. Let them fear for their paycheck. Today I cleaned up the windows so I could put the painters tape on them. And I have the tarps for the floor. I considered getting some v
Canvas so,I could cut it up later for artwork, but the plastic is more practical.
And the granite give is coming to do a final-definite-end-to-all-ends measurement for the countertops. Then they can make them from the pieces I have already chosen. And I need to give Ourso a call and see if they ordered my butcher block ,counter and the cypress beam.
Did I tell you that little white shit ate my notebook with all my numbers and dates and contacts and information. Shredded it across the back yard. I nearly had a panic attack and died, recovered from that and then just barely stopped my maniac self from killing that dog.
I put it on my iPad on the chair inside and someone let him in. It took him less than 5 seconds to locate my notebook, carry it out the door and go down on it. And let me tell you, he hit every page I had written on from beginning to end. Interestingly enough, the blank ones were just fine.
Last week he at the iPAd cover so I now have a new one of those. Brown so it will look less appetizing to him.
