Today's plan: have carpet stretched and cleaned early in the day, then mop the upstairs bathrooms and laundry room to be ready for photographs at 4:00.
The reality: carpet guy shows up late, has been here almost 3 hours already and has only NOW started cleaning the carpets as there was a LONG personal phone call after running the hoses through our house, scaring the living daylights out of the cats who may never recover, and leaving us wondering if we'll have time to get everything finished in the next 3 hours, provided there isn't another personal phone call. In the meantime, after wrenching every visible dandelion in both front and back yards out by their fat little roots and taking care of what was left to do outside, I actually have been sitting here with nothing to do, but the yarn is upstairs and after 3 hours, I certainly don't want to risk slowing this guy down. We'd have to find him a bed for the night.
Is this over yet??????????
