When it Rains it Pours

I'm not talking about rain either, folks. After quite a dry spell with the contractors it seems to be nearing an end. I say that quietly, and only after throwing salt over my left shoulder, because I don't want to jinx anything.

Here, in short order, are the different trades that actually came today:

The refinisher came to pick up our dining room table to be repaired. This repair is for the scratch that was left by the movers. That's a lot of "re" isn't it?

The glass company man came to measure for a new shower door.

The plumbers came to set the tub and replace the shower fixtures. I'm a bit anxious to check this one out because they were going to have to drill into the recently retiled wall. I'm holding my breath.

The hardwood floor man came to touch up a few several spots. As he was leaving, he reminded us not to walk through the marked blue areas. Seriously, 3 seconds after that A. plodded across one blue taped area--right in front of him. I don't think any harm was done, but we are trying to spend as much time as possible upstairs. Sadie is pondering the universe closed up in our laundry room. I'm also holding my breath on this one because one blue taped area is right in front of the side door that is Contractor Central. I see suspicious footprints. We may see more of the hardwood floor man.

The painters came to do a few more touch ups.

All. In. One. Morning. I think I may need my smelling salts.


  1. Oh the joys of Home Improvement. I am facing some of that myself. I should have married a carpenter.

  2. Oh, nightmare, isn't it? I feel your pain, sister. Hang in there!

  3. Poor thing! This to shall pass:)Oh,dear!

  4. That is too much stopping by isn't it! I hope the day goes fast, you deserve it!

  5. Hang in there!!!! Just think by Christmas it will be like having a new home (HA!) Hey, has it taken as long for them to make these repairs as to build Robyn's new house????? Yikes, Maybe you shouldn't think about that!

    love ya!

  6. I don't think I'm equipped to be the adult in a situation like this, I would need to call in my mother.
