Well! Surprise surprise!! The workers ACTUALLY showed up today, including ‘Dad’!! And get this!! THEY WORKED!!!!! The patio roof is finished, the electrical that they destroyed is working again, the old spa is ready for the concrete, the excess lumber is gone and MOST of the sand is out of here! It’s almost like watching the 3 Stooges!! They entertain me until I realize that I’m PAYING for their antics! Nothing like ‘contractor slapstick’!! Nyuk, Nyuk. Nyuk!!
Tomorrow is supposed to be the final day before they are gone! Laying the concrete, repairing my falling-over wall , removing the last bit of sand (God!! I’ve learned to hate sand!!) and hopefully the cleaning up of the empty water bottles and crap that have accumulated in my poor yard!! (I’ve decided that ‘Dad’ looks strangely like Nick Nolte! Could it be?…. NAH!)
Again, I will be watching them like a hawk!!!
Also tomorrow, the Garage Door Guy returns to install a new door!! BTW, he is NOT affiliated with ‘DAD’!! Lawn Boy will be here also to spray another 5 gallons of RoundUp on the front lawn! It has turned a lovely shade of brown already!!
Now you would think that by the weekend, all of the work, except for the sodding of the lawn would be done, right!! NOO, you fools!! It is NEVER done!! And why you ask? Because my lovely wife is leaving for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Saturday with her girlfriends for a weeklong vacation. I usually enjoy her little excursions because I get to have a mini-vacation sitting here at home. But NOT THIS TIME! She has decided that her office demands redecorating: Repainting, the removal of old furniture, having a few new electrical outlets installed, and an upgrade on the TV she has in there!! Which means pulling everything out of there and putting it god-knows-where!! (Not sure if the hot tub is gonna fit tho… Or the wet bar!!) I have been warned in advance that the painters MUST use "Straw Hat Yellow #6203" or I will be tortured!! I really don’t mind but it does cut into my ‘shuttle the wife and her friends back and forth to the airport’ gig!! And I sooo enjoyed that job!!
All I ask is that you pray for me and if you don’t see a post for a few days??? Call 911!!
They know where to find me…..
