Where Was I?

I’m feeling bad for CJ, who looks forward to me writing every day, because yesterday was just too much. But I’m back, and I’ll have two today.

Trying to look cheerful.

Between meetings for both jobs, I had zero writing time, and you wouldn’t have wanted a fresh rendition of the hissy fit I threw when presented with the plans for the dark, blocked-off staircase and ugly flooring at the Pope house. It must have been a good fit I pitched, because now the plan is for a lovely open staircase that will bring in light!

The area of contention. They wanted to build the staircase in such a way that my tiny bathroom would only have 6’ ceilings

Later in the day, Kathleen and I selected different flooring for the main floor, because the team sadly found out that the floors in most of the rooms are too far gone to salvage. But I’m glad that the front reception office will have original floors using the good parts of the other floors. That will be nice.

Fixing brick.

We also picked a really nice metal ceiling, because I thought I was supposed to get the fake stuff. Turns out they wanted real metal. I also was a little annoyed at how long I spent picking stuff out, only to find out it was the wrong stuff. Not my day.

Oh Quit Complaining

It’s not all bad, honestly. The house has been leveled, and that’s amazing!

Reinforced floor joists. They also added concrete footings. It’s steady.

And electrical work is going on! We’re just hoping the inspector likes it. He isn’t as fond of our exposed brick as we are, though we’re fixing it right up. Chris will get it all worked out. He is doing great with coordinating and schmoozing.

I will have outlets in my office!

Plus, Tina gave me these hilarious Valentine nails. She wouldn’t let me see them until she was finished. So cute! How could I stay annoyed, especially since I went straight from there to wine with friends!

Happy nails.

I’m human. I can lose it occasionally. The key is to get past it and get back to being kind. I can do that!

  1. I get perturbed when I see the same pic come up the next day, really got tired about the multiple tea blogs. I get addicted and read them early sometimes. Now I can go read LOTR .
