I know, I have not given you any updates on my kitchen and it’s not that I have not wanted to share it’s just that I have had nothing to share. We have had a time getting the contractor and the adjuster get together and then ya throw in there holidays and before you know it nothing has been done. I have picked out some things but not made a final decision. I can’t, not without knowing what my budget is. That and the contractor is a flake, he has taken the attitude that this is a $50k job when it is not. I mean come on my dear internets what does he think we are, dumb a$$’. I think not! I have done and been around construction for over 20 years, hell I owned a remodeling company and if I had the physical ability to do it I could so do it, hangin sheetrock, tape and float, texture, paint, laying tile all except electrial.
Oh my dear internets I am tired and my family is tired of living in a hotel!
Ok so we found out that a guy in our car club actually does this kind of work so we called him and he is working up a price for us. We intend to let this other crazy contractor go, he has not done much of any work and in fact when Rick was out looking and measuring he found where the contractor was working on something and was using the wrong kind of pipe, one that was not rated to code. It would endanger our safety and we just can’t have that. And I sit here typing this without knowing how it’s gonna come out…
Is our hotel stay going to be extended? Are we going get a contractor that will actually do the work? Are we going be home for Christmas? And if so will we have enough work done to put up our tree?
Perhaps my lesson here, is endurance? So don’t cry for me Argentina nor anywhere on the www cause my new name is Patience and Endurance is my game!
I hope all y’alls shopping went well, I don’t do the whole “black Friday” thing, all those people trampling and grabbing is just too scary for me.
But still I’m curious what kind of deal-e-os did y’all get?
