If you don’t follow me on Facebook, then you are probably wondering why I haven’t posted in so long. If you do follow you, you have no questions.
Apparently, we had some “water damage” and my entire house is gutted. No floors, no furniture, huge drying fans,etc. It’s been almost 3 weeks. Floor is still wet. It’s not a super situation.
I’m lucky to be dealing with a great group of contractors/ sub contractors/ laborers. They probably don’t consider themselves quite as lucky to be dealing with me.
Anyhoo, I can’t even get into the specifics.. just know that my house is a complete and total clusterfuck and for every one issue we know about, we find another that was hidden.
Today, someone is here demolishing my shower. Now 5 of us have to shower in Number One’s bathroom. Needless to say, I’ve let the other boys jump in the pool instead of bathing and I am on hour 48 without a shower. Apparently, Number One’s tub has a hard time draining– information that would have been good to know BEFORE it was our only option.
I went to shower this morning, and the tub was full, I don’t mean a little water.. I mean FULL of soap scum (oh God, I HOPE it was soap scum) and floating shampoo bottles and a very sad and violated bar of soap.
Texted the contractor.
In the meantime, the flooring guy walks in.
How are you today?
I’m a grouchy bitch.
Well then, I guess this will be a quick visit.
I just want my floors.
I really want them.
Will you please just pretend the slab is dry enough and put them in?
Fucking A !!
Can we do partial floors? Can we floor the DRY rooms? I cannot live like this any more!!!
THEN, a guy from the cable company came to bury a wire that the OTHER workers cut last week while digging up my yard and installing a sump pump (we have a water issue, remember?). You know he did that? By digging up my whole yard AGAIN.
THEN, while the shower guy is in the shower and the cable guy is in the yard and I’m waiting on the plumber, the electricity guy comes and cuts off my power. AGAIN. (yes, I know I should enroll in automatic bill pay.. Fuck you very much)
THEN, while I’m talking to the shower guy about what sort of shower head I need to buy, a limb falls off the tree and (thank GOD) missed the screen enclosure by an inch and I burned a hole in my new patio rug.
OOOOOOOO!!! the flooring guy JUST called and said “Hey, you little whiner.. you got your way. I’ll be there tomorrow”
In other news, I got my period and have no bathrooms. So, there’s that.
