We are in reconstruction hell.  No way around it, why bother trying to sugar coat it?  It is what it is.  Constant stress.  I’m so ready to be done, it can’t end fast enough.  Not just the constant chaos, the in and out of people in your house all day, the never ending tools, paint, sharp things, nails and an uber long list of other things left everywhere for a toddler to get into.  If that wasn’t enough, we’re having trouble with our contractor.  It’s more than we can take, unnecessary drama, I just want my house done.  I keep trying to remind myself, a few more days and then we can move on…..but by today, it really does feel never ending.  As hard as it was doing so much of the work ourselves, in many ways, it really was easier.  In hiring someone else we’ve taken on so much more.  We’ve been lied to, insulted and a long list of other things I just don’t have it in me to rehash at the moment.  I’m so done.  But the house isn’t finished.  I called Jason today and told him our house is a zoo.  His reply?  "The zoo is fun"…..yeah, well, that all depends on whether you’re the caged animal or the spectator.

    question about using tea bags

    From: dina&eric

    ok, ive never made tea first of all. the instructions say for a glass of tea to pour boiling water over the tea bag and let sit for 4-6 minutes. but that would be flavored water i’d think. shouldn’t i let the bag sit in the water 4-6 minutes? the instructions are confusing, sorry.

  • Oh man Lynds, I wish I had something funny to write. I’ll have to think on it. I hope today gets better.

    If you are even one iota of the celebrity gossip fan that I am, you will find this very amusing.

  • Sorry to hear the drama that is going on. I wish i had something funny to give you a little pick up, but i don’t. It will get better and hopefully soon. Just try not to stress out too much – stacy s.

  • Well, I don’t have any funny links to anything, but I’ve got a little story that you can maybe relate to with having a little one;)

    Last weekend DH, DS, I went out for my birthday (DD was with her dad). We went to eat at a local restaurant and being a Sunday night and kind of late, it wasn’t all that busy (thank goodness). After ordering and eating, we’re sitting there finishing up and DS decides to be a PITA. He was standing in the booth and had a french fry in his hand. After gently waving it around (he was already chewing one), he stopped, gave me this sweet, angelic smile, and then *whoosh*! Quicker than DH or I could see (or stop), he flicked his hand and whipped that fry off to his right and it went flying across the aisle out of sight. Thankfully no one was around us, so nobody else saw it. It was one of those situations that we didn’t expect and as naughty as DS was, I couldn’t stop giggling. I’m hiding behind my napkin, with tears rolling down my face, DH is scolding DS for throwing the fry and me for laughing. Just that sweet little face and the unexpected, naughty thing combined… If I could lose weight from laughing at my kids, I’d never have to diet again!

    Hang in there with the house…we’ve been there with never-ending repairs and it sucks. Nothing like what you’ve got going on, but the constant people in your house, the noise, a mess everywhere, trying to keep a curious and bored little one out of it…ugh, just all around suck! There is an end though (as far away as it may seem) and hopefully it will be worth it!
