As I am writing this on my work laptop, I am fuming and sweating buckets sitting up in our house’s un-airconditioned attic. Why am I in the attic? Because the people fixing our house are IDIOTS. First of all these guys have shown up once a week for the past month, and everytime they turn things upside down needlessly, only to not show up for another week. What little they have done could have been consolidated into one solid week. Instead we were left with, first, a hole in the living room (conveniently when were having a full week or two of rain) and then a completely empty living room and dining room for another week when they were “preparing” to sand the floors (a lot of the furniture was stuffed into a bedroom rendering that space useless too) . I understand things are bound to be inconvenient during construction and if I see the results I am cool with a little discomfort. But these guys have done shit. Don’t change things all around until you’re ready to do some work! Geez!

To top it off, when I came home today around 6:30 the smell of chemicals hit me before I opened the door. They were just finishing up varnishing the floors. Normally this would be fine if this was done with the windows OPEN and in the morning, and in a localized area so that we could still go through the house. But before they left at almost 7, they tell us to not step on the floor for another 5-7 HOURS. Umm ok? That just blocks off the whole house until at least midnight (including the only working bathroom since the attic bathroom is also under construction) and the house smells so noxious. Wtf am I going to do in a kitchen, which is also stuffed full with living room crap, wearing my work clothes, for 7 hours? Luckily my dad and I had a huge blow-up anyways so I stormed my ass out of the house for the whole evening… Oh tonite was just lovely. Grrr…
