  1. Difficult

    by , 04-10-2011 at 06:48 PM
    I am having a difficult time dealing with this entire attic debacle. My neighbor says, that I should stop beating myself up over this. However, it's always on my mind, and I don't know how to shut off my brain. I don't have a clue what to do to make it right. Not sure money would fix it that easily, even if I had the money.

    The hardest time of the day is when I am laying in bed at night. I go to sleep thinking about it, and I wake up, and it's still there, hovering over me like ...
  2. Holding pattern

    Right now I am in a holding pattern with the attic. I did tell Kathy and Sean what was up today, and I asked for Kathy's help. Her first inclination is to go after the contractor legally. I am not after revenge. I just want to get the attic finished for a reasonable amount of money. Sure the contractor duped me, but I take partial blame for that fact. My husband is with me on this one. We just want to get the project completed.

    So now I am in a holding pattern and I am gathering ...
  3. The Beginning of the End.

    I fired my contractor today. I was hoping to accomplish that with a face to face meeting, but when he cancelled a meeting at the last minute, I decided it was time to finally fire the man. So I just sent off an e-mail to him, and told him he was fired.

    I'm not exactly sure how he will repond to this. I guess only time will tell.

    I did tell my husband what was up, and he was quite calm. Perhaps when he thinks about it he will "wring my neck". Right now ...
  4. The Cricket's One Up On Me.

    I loved watching the Mickey Mouse Club when I was a kid. I especially loved the segments with Jiminy Cricket. The one's where he sang, "I'm No Fool". Well today, I found out just what a real Fool I have been.

    Here all this time, I thought the best plan of action, was no plan of action at all. After not hearing anything again from my contractor for a week after an e-mail from him, something told me to google his name. I googled his name alongside the name of his company, ...
  5. Overly Excited

    by , 03-09-2011 at 06:32 AM
    I have been home from my vacation for an entire month already. Before I left, work on my attic was getting done at a fast pace, and I was overly excited about seeing everything finished finally. I say overly excited because "Nothing" has gotten done since my return.

    Have you ever had a problem that you really want to solve, and you honestly don't have a clue how to solve it. Everywhere you turn is just a dead end with no answers? I don't expect anyone to walk right in ...
