Amazing Day

The Hubs told me to write about what a perfect day I had with him.

But I don’t want you guys to be jealous, so…

Oh, before I forget, today is our 1-year anniversary!

It seems like about 50 years, but it’s actually only been one whole year that we have been in this house.

I am honestly a little surprised we survived it. So, so, so many things have caught us off guard this year.

One year ago today, we were moving ourselves. It took about 10 trips, and while we were hauling, there was a team of 3 working on the quarter round moldings all over the house. It was barely controlled chaos and looking back, I can’t say there weren’t warning signs.

But here we are, 1 year into this journey. In some ways we are further along the road than I thought we’d be. We were hoping to put some of the updates off, but that didn’t work out so well. There were so many cascading failures, one thing pretty much rolled into the next.

Enough of that.

Last night we put up the last 2 shelves. The upper part of the kitchen is pretty much done.

The pipes are out of whack, and there was a load of swearing to get them up. We were not able to block this wall, so we took what we could get. Look how neat it all looks. That will NOT last!

Not sure what I’m gonna put on this top shelf yet, but it’s up!

That junction box cover is barely noticeable once the Hubs got it back on the wall.

The Hubs set up some knife intimidation:

Which makes me wonder where the heck all my other knives got to!

Today was a chore day, some mowing, some yard planning and cleanup. The Hubs got the sprinkler system up and running.

Tomorrow we’ll be installing the AC unit in the shed. I’m really not looking forward to that. I have this thing about cutting holes in my house, and it’s transferring itself to the shed. We have to cut a hole in the wall to get the unit installed. It just seems like a disaster waiting to happen. But the Hubs is confident he can make it happen.

I’m sure it’ll be fine.

I’d like to not look and work on my side garden, but I think it’s gonna be necessary for me to stand around and offer unwanted suggestions. Maybe help, too.

My cabinets were supposed to be loaded for delivery yesterday. I’m cautiously optimistic, you know because everything is running so tight these days.

I texted that miserable little twerp from Terminix on Thursday to ask about the claim. In true asshat fashion, he responded (eventually) like it was someone else’s fault and if they didn’t contact me Friday, to let him know.

They didn’t.

I let him know.


I also called about my screens and window weight. Anisha was as bitchy as ever with her standard, “They won’t respond to me.” I told her I’d call again next week.

I’m sure she looks forward to our little chats.

I had reason to email Scott about the AC unit in our bedroom maybe having a thermostat issue. Crickets there as well.

I cannot for the life of me understand why people just don’t get it. Do what you promise and I won’t bother you anymore.

OK, something REALLY funny happened yesterday. You might not appreciate it, but we are STILL laughing about it! And yes, I bought a LOT.

Watch it and laugh!

  1. Happy House Anniversary! I came late to the party, but things are looking pretty good. And yes, the attitude of most businesses today astounds me. It’s like they forgot there’s money involved and they think they’re doing you a big favor. Ugh. I love the Jeremy commercials. Such clever commentary that is, (unfortunately) also quite true.

  2. If only the people who actually NEED to hear it would actually hear it!
    Thank you! We’re ever hopeful this will someday be a not-sad little bungalow!
