Week #2 of Construction Clusterfuck

You know you've bonded with your iPhone when you type "cluster" and it automatically adds "fuck." It took an entire week to build a shower and lay ceramic tile in two smallish bathrooms; stayed home all day yesterday waiting for the crew that never showed up to finish. It's now 9:30 and still no one is here finishing the job. I have a partial shower and two old vanities in the master and an old cracked tub and no surround and a toilet in the hall bath. Thank God I haven't paid a dime to the contractor yet. We may settle on what's been done so far minus mileage for the four days I had to drive the chicks to Canyon so they could continue working after 2:30. Not that they got much accomplished.
I'm so tired, cranky and seriously redhead pissed.

And that's about how my week's going

I realized Saturday that I'd bitten off way more than I could chew,
so I dropped the second class. I can't describe the feeling of relief that swept over me.
I'm just on the second week of the first class and my eyes are glazed over.
We're having BOTH bathrooms completely redone this week.
All work has to be done while the Cute Chicks are in school.
Construction and Autism are not compatible.
I was just overwhelmed.
Now I'm simply whelmed.

They're pot potholes

There is a third option, Mrs. Grumwald...

Good, let some other states deal with illegals.
