The house thing is really getting to me. Today is the 40th day that Anne and I have been living at my sister's house.Things are going smoothly enough but It is a nerve wracking situation. The house is so close to being ready but now it seems that the contractors have jumped ship. I have been going to water and check on the house but nothing is getting done. This is exactly what I dreaded. The contractors are good at their job but have so many other jobs that mine doesn't get top billing. They have a habit of leaving little things undone at the end of the job. The catch is that there are almost no contractors in our small town and I have heard horror stories about pooorly done projects about the others. At least mine does a good job and is reasonable but damn!
I took Maz to see the house. The walls are taped and partially sanded, the floor is bare, the room is empty. It does look better than it did but Maz couldn't see that. She looked around the room, heaved a sigh and said "This was once our happy home."Not sure where she heard that but it cracked me up.
