Back in May we had a lot of water damage due to an overflowing toilet tank. It ran for 36 hours while we were out of town. Came home to a very nasty surprise. Thankfully it was ONLY for 36 hours and we own a Shopvac.
BUT the bad news is that we still have people coming over and doing repairs to the walls and floors and carpet. It’s just irritating to play babysitter to workmen. I can’t work from home as our Windows computer has kicked the bucket and the one I am writing this on would probably cry if it had to remotely run ArcGIS and various Office Programs.
I’m really fed up with shoddy workmanship. Paint the moulding first, then install it. . . when you paint the walls, TAPE THE MOULDING AND BASEBOARDS so you get clean lines. This sloppy work is just embarrassing. . . You claim to be ‘professionals’ and my friend’s 4 year old paints better than you. Seriously.
I’m a bit miffed. I’m also really sick of housework. I like our house, I really really do, but people aren’t kidding when they say you take on a lot of work when you buy a home. Suddenly you have to budget and schedule your repairs. So the roof needs to be replaced in x-years, but the deck should be fixed in 2-3 and the screen door no longer works right so we should fix that and then there’s the weird tree species growing over there and the weeds that have taken over that spot so we need to fix that window screen and those drawers …. the list NEVER.FLIPPING.ENDS. And that’s just if nothing actually goes wrong. . .
I want my mommy.
Toys R Us had the right idea — “I don’t wanna grow up, ’cause if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys R Us Kid” I do not want to face the adult world some days. I’d be very happy having a carefree summer of camps and friends and staying up late and sleepovers.
