  1. A sign around my neck.

    by , 08-08-2010 at 03:56 PM
    I am going to hang a sign around my neck that says, "don't ask me about my attic". I really am so so tired of discussing the entire fiasco. I just sent the contractor another e-mail after he has ignored me for almost two weeks time.

    I just want to be left alone as I ponder what just might be one of the hardest decisions of my life. This is the first time ever I have gotten myself into this type of a situation.

    A lawsuit would be a hard decision for me. ...

  2. I'll settle for the Dells.

    I started this Blog because I figured it would be fun to share my excitement about the transformation of my attic from a huge storage area to a living space for my grandson and his mom. It didn't turn out that way. Kathy and Sean may never be able to make the attic their home. I may end up having to take the contractor to court.

    In the meantime, we have decided to move Kathy and Sean into the basement instead. Kathy can save some money, and if and when the attic gets finished ...

  3. Handling disappointment

    by , 07-16-2010 at 12:12 PM
    I guess I get disappointed quite easily. Maybe I hold people up to a pretty high standard. Then again, maybe I just expect people to do what they say they are going to do.

Sometimes I am disappointed by the fact that certain members of my family don't seem to have the time for me unless they want somethng.

    I am trying to deal with the disappointment that ...

  4. Add a little music...

    No progress. Every day no progress. I can't explain the frustration that I feel. Lately, I have found myself walking around with a lump in my throat. Crying is such a useless emotion at this point in time. So instead, I turn on my Disney music, and I look at my Disney pictures. Sometimes, it helps, and sometimes I just feel even more depressed, especially since today I should have been on an airplane headed for Anaheim.

    Someday when all is said and done the music will bring ...

  5. What next?

    by , 07-07-2010 at 06:20 PM
    This morning I woke up to find an e-mail from my contractor. He wanted to know if I was going to be home at 1 p.m. today. I replied the affirmative, and all morning I had this feeling that something bad was about to happen.

    Well the contractor showed up, and he just wanted to check out the attic progress for himself to make sure we were ready for the building inspector.

    Wait. That's all I ever do is wait.

    Well then tonite I get a phone call from ...
