    We all need some "me" time once in a while. As much as this is "home" even I have to walk away once in a while.

    Enjoy your break and have some fun! We'll always be here when ever you feel like wandering back.

    I'm glad you found your blog Barbaraann.

    You are right that things have changed. Most things that survive do. But I hope there is still enough of the old MiceChat to keep you happy here.

    Glad to hear your contractor is finally working again.

    I'm sure he does. Happy birthday, Barbaraann!

    None of that is worth the bother. I like the fact that I can blog here and complain about the guy. It relieves my stress. However, this whole process has definitely taught me a lot.

    Can't you call like the "Problem Solvers" in your neck of the woods? Have some media ask why they aren't doing their job? What was the time estimate?

    For now I am being civil to Stan. He knows my feelings about all these delays. However, once the project is finally done, to my satisfaction, and he has his final money, than I will feel free to spread the word about how I really feel about him as a contractor.

    I figure it's in my best interest not to rock the boat too much now.

    Maybe some "bad press" here would enlighten him...

    Not those exact words, but pretty close. I sent that e-mail last night. My contractor is pretty unresponsive. He knows how aggravated I am with him, but he doesn't seem to care. I'll be glad when this is finally all over. I'll never hire a contractor again, and I wouldl definitely not hire this guy, or refer him to anyone.

    I would email him. Just maybe a sarcastic email saying "Yay! It's been one year since you became part of the family!" It seems almost unreasonable that it would take so long.

    That sucks, please make sure you document everything including phone calls, emails, visits, work done or not done. In Arizona we have a Board of Contractors that we can contact and file a complaint with and get your money back but it requires a lot of documentation on the homeowners part.
