The builders are supposed to arrive around lunchtime today. I really hope they can do the repairs fast... because if they can't get it all done today, they will have to come back on the 12th, which will just drag it out for another week.
I hate distruptions in my house. This is doing me head in... but at least I am managing to hold my frustrations in.
I am one of the most impatient people I KNOW! I want it done YESTERDAY!
When I know I have to wait, it just makes me anxious... because I don't know exactly what the builders have to do, and if I have to take everything out of the kitchen cupboards? Cover everything from dust? Bla bla bla. See... already doing me head in.
I think I have a touch of OCD sometimes.
Sheesh, I don't even have a photo to start the day with! Outrageous!
Yes, I got bored hence all the colours. I will come back later with some photos of hunky builders... I hope! There has to be some positives eh? *smiles*
TRACY: as the builders will be here today, I will find out all the finer details today I suppose.
My biggest concern is how much dust there might be when they do the back garage wall... because we have a lot of stuff/equipment in the garage.
So far, today has not gone to plan for me. I felt really ill when I was making the lunches so had to go back to bed for a while. I've got a cracking headache and my tummy is doing flip flops.
You know when you put on a top that is just that wee bit too tight and it pulls across your back? Well today I put on a top that was way too tight last time I tried to wear it.... and today? IT FITS again! Shit that's such a neat feeling!!!
I brought Lacy and Keera over for the day... Lacy has done some housework for me, and so has Bex. Now we just have to wait for the builder to arrive....
Anti climax ... the builder arrived, mucked around with kick boards in the kitchen... then left! Seems it's only the kick boards that need to be replaced. And he has to get them ordered and made... so who knows how long that will take!
I cannot BELIEVE the building company didn't order the new kick boards WEEKS AGO, when they knew they would have to be replaced! Freaking useless.
I didn't even bother to take a photo... it wasn't worth it!
Now I am like... CRABBY. Annoyed. Frustrated.
The flooring man is calling in shortly to drop off materials and 'scope' the job. *sigh* Don't tell me they don't know what the hell they are doing either. Surely not?
Well I can't say a bad word about the flooring guys! They dropped off all the new flooring and will come back either tomorrow or Wednesday to do the job. It is expected to take 2 days. And not too much dust involved, the guy said he didn't want to piss me off! lol
ABOVE: some cute photos of the two bubs today.
That's all for now, going to lie on the couch and do nothing for a little while... feeling ikky.
OMG, I AM FURIOUS!!!
Griffin came home with his writing book from school. He wanted to show me what his teacher had made him do today.
Apparently after assembly, Griffin and another boy sat outside to do their 20 spelling words. Griffin only managed to get 15 done in the allocated time, and when he went inside he told the teacher that he had not finished because the sun was in his eyes.
The teacher said he did not believe that, and he also did not believe Griffin had Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Dysgraphia, and he told Griffin he was JUST LAZY !!!
OMG I saw red, and immediately rang the Principal to talk to her and ask for Griffin to be moved into another class, and he would NOT be coming back to school until that was arranged.
The Principal (bless her heart) said Griffin would be moved IMMEDIATELY, and she was going to talk to Griffin's teacher right away.
Fuming... shaking... totally stunned that a teacher could go against all the reports on Griffin and tell my son he was 'JUST LAZY'.
I am so happy with our Principal! She has organised a new class for Griffin, she will get all Griffin's belongings out of his classroom and take Griffin and I to his new class and new teacher tomorrow morning! How awesome is she?
I am now looking forward to tomorrow. So is Griffin.
End of Day: just spent a while filling out our Census papers, what a job. *sigh*
Now before we go to bed we need to move all the furniture from the kitchen/family room into the lounge, so that IF the flooring guys come back tomorrow morning, it is ready for them to get working on the floor.
