someone certainly has been slacking. Is anyone still out there? This house project has been more challenging than I anticipated. It is coming along fine with occasional little glitches that get corrected quickly enough and properly to boot. So what is my problem?

The constant cleaning of everything. Never knowing if we'll have electricity. The constant blowing of fuses. Having to reset the clocks multiple times daily. Shoveling a driveway with an enormous dumpster so I can park across the street and the workers can park in the yard. Not having any space that isn't toddler proof. When you are writing a weekly check for $15K it is really hard not to spend $2 on wasteful things like coffee or a quick bite. The inconsistent work schedules that disrupt our lives. Some crews start at 6:59am promptly. Others show up at 2pm and work until 7pm. Did I mention the constant cleaning? If I spend 45 minutes cleaning the kitchen so I can safely cook the I don't have 45 minutes to wash the (filthy, sticky, grimey) floors.

Blah. If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. Maybe that's why I've been so quiet.
