#18 – PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE

Seriously… Omg… I can’t stand repair work being done around me and I feel like such a bitch about it but honestly, it just drives me bonkers. Especially since the work is being done in two of the rooms we frequent the most. – Thank the gods that be that we’re having no issues in our bathroom!

Plus, I feel like I’m being held hostage by the Gomer waiting on when/if he chooses to show up. He never shows when he says he will and we’ve had some beautiful days that I would’ve much rather been on the trails in the sunshine than waiting on that jughead.

And I know that I don’t have to be home for them to come in but I’d rather be, ya’ know? I mean, I don’t know this guy. He could be one of those weirdo panty sniffer idiots I see on all of my creepy crime shows. Who knows?? Plus, just the idea of a stranger in my home and I’m not here. Yeah, no. Call me paranoid but no. Not happening.
My future daughter-in-law tho, finding the positive in everything that happens, did take advantage of this annoying situation..

She decided to dry her leggings collection… And trust me. She has waaaay more than this and more coming in the mail!
So. There’s a silver lining. Killing two birds with one stone, as it were.
HOME REPAIR UPDATE –
The fan is gone AND the Gomer got fired! Not because of us but apparently, his work, in general, was a bit shoddy. – Ya’ think???
We have a new maintenance guy and he appears to be on the ball and he’s certainly 100% more professional than the Gomer. We still have holes in the dining room and kitchen and the one in the dining room is going to get a whole lot bigger before all is said and done. I don’t even care. I just want it finished!
We’ve had some great weather but that took quite a turn. Cooler temps with rain/hail/snow mix but that’s okay because I’ve got plenty of projects to keep me busy indoors!
More about those later..
Passing along a “must see” show. If you have Hulu, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is excellent.
It’s also a book by Margaret Atwood but I haven’t read it – yet.
Have any of you read the book or are you watching the show? It’s so creepily fascinating.
I am determined to get this posted today! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week. I’m coming around to catch up on everybody now and hopefully, there will be enough hours at the end of my day to write a post for tomorrow!

#17 – IT’S STILL MY MONDAY

From faux Monday to Monday from hell.
Yes. I know it’s Wednesday.
Let’s just forget about this loud ass monstrosity of a floor fan that must run all day, all night, all weekend and into next week.
I know. It doesn’t look very big but trust me, it’s loud as fuck.
And let’s forget our “Gomer” maintenance guy’s chop shop repair.
A hole in the dining room. A hole in the kitchen where a ton more water came pouring out between two light fixtures. No worries, right? I’m sure there’s no water in between point A and point B…

So, just to put it together. The loud ass floor fan is on the floor pointed up at the big hole in the dining room with the idea that that small hole in the kitchen will serve as ventilation to dry everything out to prevent mold and the ceiling collapsing.
Uh huh…
Yeah. Let’s forget about all that other jerry-rigged ridiculousness going on up there and let’s take a moment to focus on this close up of our Gomer maintenance guy hard at work.
Yep. That’s our Gomer. And I get to spend the next couple of weeks with him.
I know ladies, be jealous…
I know I said the most challenging aspect of the Whole30 Plan was not being able to have my fancy coffees. I take that back. It’s not being able to have a vat of fucking wine when I need it!
Welcome to my Wednesday, aka, the faux Monday from hell.
Please, share with me some fun stuff that you’re doing that doesn’t involve creepy Gomers in your homes!

Yep. This is pretty much where I’m at…
